Mercedes driver Valtteri Bottas finished second, having trailed Vettel throughout, with Red Bull's Max Verstappen third.

Charlie Whiting said the error that resulted in the model Winnie Harlow waving the chequered flag a lap too soon was the result of a miscommunication between local officials. He had lost two seconds and Vettel, turning the screw, responded with a fastest lap before cruising to a crushing victory.

However the Mercedes chief, Toto Wolff, warned the team's performance in Montreal was a "wake-up call" they could not afford to ignore.

"We need to review procedures and make sure we have a very simple procedure for every circuit", added Whiting. "We have a lot of potential in this auto", he said.

There was joy for both Force India drivers, though, as they both made it to Q3 for the second race running, so Esteban Ocon and Sergio Perez will start either side of ninth-placed Carlos Sainz.

"We came to Montreal expecting the auto to be really strong and we are leaving Montreal seeing that we haven't been where we should have been, where we thought we should be. This is a track where we should have maximised points - it is not about damage limitation for us".

"I was quite happy with my first run in Q3 but I knew there was something more in the vehicle for the first part of the lap", Vettel continued.

Hamilton struggled with engine temperatures during the race, the Briton already up against it with a power unit on its seventh outing against rivals who brought upgrades to the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve. Hartley was pitched into the air, with both cars hitting the barriers.

Speaking about the incident, Stroll said: "I was side-by-side with Brendon going into Turn 5, the vehicle got loose on me and I corrected it, but there was not much room for both of us".

When asked if he was anxious errors could start creeping in as a result of an intense fight, he said: "I think you need to get the right balance between pushing development very hard, adding performance to the auto and at the same time keeping reliability". I think 'How can I beat them?

But deputy team principal Bob Fernley acknowledged that there had been talks with, but said nothing had changed. "At the end of the day all those issues are dealt with by the shareholders, they're not a team issue, so we don't have any involvement in it at all".

Meanwhile, qualifying didn't start as planned for Romain Grosjean.

He said: "The whole race I was thinking it was going to blow up". Establishing a team in IndyCar may suit the their American chief executive Zak Brown, but surely there are more pressing matters for Britain's most successful F1 team to deal with?
