Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel was crowned at the Canada Grand Prix on Sunday to win his 50th grand prix and also take the lead from Briton Lewis Hamilton by a single point.

Vettel capped an emotional weekend for Ferrari with a clinical pole-to-flag win at the Canadian Grand Prix, Reuters reported.

The 50th victory of German Vettel career left him on 121 points to Hamilton’s 120 after seven races, with the Briton coming home fifth.

The victory put Ferrari back on top in Canada for the first time since seven-time world champion Michael Schumacher claimed the last of his record seven wins on the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in 2004.

Putting Ferrari on pole in Montreal for the first time since 2001 with a track record time, Vettel had powered into the lead and was never challenged as he charged home seven seconds clear of Mercedes’s Valtteri Bottas.

It was the German’s third win of the season and second in Canada, the first coming in 2013 with Red Bull. Red Bull’s Max Verstappen, who dominated much of practice, turned in a mature, error-free effort to take third place and quiet the storm of criticism
