Event:  Canadian Grand Prix (Round 7 of 21)
Date:  Sunday, June 10
Location:  Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Montreal




Layout:  4.361-kilometer (2.710-mile), 14-turn track
Weather:  Partly cloudy
Air Temps:  19.7-21.3 degrees Celsius (67.5-70.3 degrees Fahrenheit)
Track Temps:  33-42.1 degrees Celsius (91.4-107.8 degrees Fahrenheit)
Race Winner:  Sebastian Vettel of Scuderia Ferrari



Haas F1 Team:


●  Romain Grosjean – Started 20th, Finished 12th (Running, completed 67/68 laps)
●  Kevin Magnussen – Started 11th, Finished 13th (Running, completed 67/68 laps)
 
 


Haas F1 Team drivers Romain Grosjean and Kevin Magnussen finished 12th and 13th, respectively, in the Canadian Grand Prix Sunday at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Montreal.
 


While the result did not garner any points, it was impressive nonetheless for Grosjean, who started last in the 20-car field and climbed to as high as seventh in the 68-lap race around the 4.361-kilometer (2.710-mile), 14-turn track.
 


In fact, Grosjean ran the first 48 laps on a set of Pirelli P Zero Purple ultrasoft tires before finally pitting for a new set of Red supersofts. Grosjean stayed out longer than any other driver in the hopes of a full-course caution that would bring out either an actual safety car or the virtual safety car.



 It never came to be, and after wringing all that was available from his ultrasofts, Grosjean made his necessary pit stop. This dropped Grosjean to 12th, where he returned to the track in front of his teammate, Magnussen.
 


Magnussen started 11th, but lost a position on the start when Charles Leclerc successfully maneuvered his Sauber past Magnussen’s Haas VF-18. Magnussen held steady in 12th, particularly on lap five when Sergio Perez worked to collect his sideways Force India during a dicey moment in turn one.



 Magnussen later came under threat from the Toro Rosso of Pierre Gasly, whose Pink hypersoft tires – the grippiest and fastest tire in Pirelli’s lineup – proved to be quicker than Magnussen’s ultrasofts. Gasly eventually got by Magnussen on lap nine, dropping him to 13th.
 


Soon, scheduled pit stops began, allowing Magnussen to climb to eighth before he made his own pit stop for supersofts on lap 22. This dropped Magnussen to 15th.
 


When Fernando Alonso was forced to retire his McLaren after 40 laps, Magnussen picked up 14th. And when Perez made his second and final pit stop on lap 44, Magnussen rose to 13th and later in the race held off Perez who ultimately finished 14th.
 


It was a gritty performance by both Haas F1 Team pilots in the seventh round of the 2018 FIA Formula One World Championship.
 


Scuderia Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel won the Canadian Grand Prix in convincing fashion over Mercedes driver Valtteri Bottas. Vettel started from the pole and led all 70 laps, culminating with a 7.376-second margin of victory. It was a milestone win for Vettel, as it was his 50th career Formula One victory. He is now fourth on the series’ all-time win list, just one victory behind fellow four-time champion Alain Prost.



 Michael Schumacher leads the list with 91 wins and Lewis Hamilton is second with 63 victories. This was Vettel’s series-leading third win of the season and his second at Montreal. The triumph also vaulted Vettel into the championship lead by a single point over Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton.
 


Seven rounds into the 21-race Formula One schedule, Haas F1 Team is tied with Toro Rosso for seventh in the constructors’ standings with 19 points apiece, nine points behind sixth-place Force India with a seven-point advantage over Sauber, their nearest pursuer.
 


The 2018 FIA Formula One World Championship resumes with the French Grand Prix June 24 at Circuit Paul Ricard in Le Castellet.
 
 

ROMAIN GROSJEAN



“We didn’t really know quite how long we could go. We had been planning to go long, but not as long as that. The tires were holding quite nicely. There was only a bit of front degradation. I was happy with the pace. I was easily managing keeping up with the Renault in front and the Force India behind.



If qualifying had been as I was expecting with a P7, it would’ve been a P7 today, for sure. Anyway, we tried to come back, but our strategy didn’t quite work. When we came out of the pit we had a lot of blue flags and so on. I couldn’t really come back through the field. We did our best. The car is fast and I enjoyed driving it.”
 
 


KEVIN MAGNUSSEN, driver



“Not a brilliant weekend for us. We were thinking that P11 in qualifying was a good result. We thought that would be an advantage for the race – being on a different tire from the top-10. It didn’t really turn out to be that way. I didn’t get a great first lap. I was overtaken by one of the Saubers.



They had a really good start, and then a couple of laps after I had a Force India that spun and I couldn’t get on the inside, so I was on the outside and got done by Fernando (Alonso) on the inside. Things just didn’t go our way today. It’s a shame. I think the car was pretty good, especially on the supersoft, the pace was good. I think we just didn’t get it right today.”
 
 
GUENTHER STEINER, Team Principal



“It was a disappointing end to a disappointing weekend. Lady Luck didn’t quite go our way during the race. The only thing we can do is look forward to the next race. I’m hoping we’ll get a break at some stage and show what we can do.”
 
 



Round 8 of the 2018 FIA Formula One World Championship is the French Grand Prix at Circuit Paul Ricard in Le Castellet. Practice begins June 22, qualifying takes place June 23 and the race runs June 24.
