It's another McLaren 1 and 2 finished. Great drive by Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button. Alonso did good too only to lose out a place from the starting grid to finished 3rd after he was held back by a back marker on the 56th lap where Button seize the opportunity to claim the No2 spot.

It was also a celebration for the Force India team with both drivers securing the top 10 points qualifier finishing on the 9th and 10th spots for Liuzzi and Sutil respectively. And the biggest casualty in Montreal is none other than my all time favorite driver, Michael Schumacher who lost 2 places in the very last lap of the 70 laps circuit. What happened to you, Michael? Full results Canada F1 2010 winners.

Definitely worth staying up late to watch the live telecast due to the time difference in Jakarta and Montreal. And not wanting to miss out any of the action, zapping TV channels between Start Sports and Global TV was the order of the night. Keeping me company are some potato chip snacks, water and some very stubborn mosquitoes. This reminded me again to buy a fan so that I can blow them mosquitoes away!

It began with second fastest qualifier Mark Webber being moved back five grid places after Red Bull replaced his gearbox, then a collision between Ferrari’s Felipe Massa and Force India’s Vitantonio Liuzzi which split the field up and put some unfancied runners in places you wouldn’t have expected in the midfield.
Up front Hamilton grabbed the lead from Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel and Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso, with Button slipping into fourth as Liuzzi and Massa fell down the order to begin sterling recovery drives after pit stops.
Soon it became apparent that those who had gambled on soft rubber in qualifying were in trouble: Button, Hamilton and Alonso all pitted for the harder Bridgestones within seven laps.
