Hamilton Wins in Montreal: 7th winner in 7 races

Lewis Hamilton wins Canadian Grand Prix 2012 and becomes the 7th winner in as many Formula One races this season. He easily overtook Fernando Alonso who had gambled with a one stopping strategy. In fact Alonso was struggling so much with his tyres that Romain Grosjean and Sergio Perez passed him for a podium position. Romain Grosjean scored the second position. Vettel too overtook Alonso in the last lap and came 4th. So Alonso had to settle for 5th place.

Nico Rosberg came 6th, Mark Webber 7th, Kimi Raikkonen 8th, Kamui Kobayashi 9th and Felipe Massa came 10th.

Mercedes Again Fails Michael Schumacher. Michael Schumacher who always has fantastic outings in Montreal was left dissapointed as his Mercedes failed yet again. This time it was a DRS failure which continuously remained open.

Narain Karthikeyan and Pedro de La Rosa of HRT and Timo Glock were the other drivers who retired.
