Starting from pole position, the Briton won ahead of his team-mate Valtteri Bottas and Max Verstappen, as often this year.

Behind, we find Charles Leclerc and an impressive Pierre Gasly.

Esteban Ocon, eighth, also scores points as does Sebastian Vettel, tenth.

Romain Grosjean, driving his Haas, finished sixteenth. 

Hamilton's first F1 victory dates back to the 2007 season at the Canadian Grand Prix in Montreal in a Mercedes-powered McLaren.

Thanks to this success, Lewis Hamilton also consolidates his lead in the world championship where he is aiming for a 7th title which would allow him to equal the record also set by the legendary German driver.
