Canadian Grand Prix review: A bullish way!


The Canadian grand prix was the perfect palette of colors. The picture was given a splash of fiery red off-track battle between 2 teammates and moved onto a peaceful blue towards the end celebrating a 105th winner in 64 years. And created the masterpiece that 2014 was looking for since March! 



The Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton drama resumed in Canada after both of them fell out at the Monaco Grand Prix. Hamilton was keen to beat him at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, a track which has favored him several times in the last couple of years. However, Rosberg's and Hamilton's equally quick start off line meant the leader would be decided only after turn 1. However, being squeezed too much into turn one put Hamilton off line and into the grass, yielding his 2nd place to Sebastian Vettel who'd qualified P3 behind the Mercedes duo.

A first lap drama which involved both the Marussias brought out the first safety car period of the race. Later, Max Chilton was handed a grid penalty for wiping out himself and his teammate Jules Bianchi. After the restart, Hamilton, who had a superior car compared to the Red Bull of Vettel, overtook him with a DRS aid down the straight.

A different strategy yet both winners for Sahara Force India saw their cars up in P3 and P4 at a stage. And eventually challenging for a win with only one Mercedes running after Hamilton's challenger failed to complete the race with failed brakes.

Daniel Ricciardo who was, of course, given a better strategy to that of his teammate went onto win the grand prix after overtaking Perez in last 5 laps while Vettel, who was victimized by Red Bull's wrong call into the pit lane, fought a fast charging Massa and a slow running Perez to gain 3rd place at the very last lap.

Felipe Massa who started 5th was thrown at the back of the field after a miscalculated strategy. However, the Brazilian who looked so much quicker than his teammate endlessly fought through the field and with a good strategy in hand afterwards made it up to 1st. But a routine pitsop saw him fall to seventh which he made up to 5th behind Vettel. Due to a misunderstanding from both ends while fighting for 4th place, Perez and Massa crashed into each other throwing both of them out of the race and promoting Jenson Button to 4th place. Massa and Perez both pointed at each other but the FIA took action against Perez who was found to change his racing line in order to defend a flying Massa.
