Hamilton's remarkable season continues as he records his first Grand Prix win in only his sixth race.

Starting from his first pole, Hamilton holds off Alonso at the start and drives a copybook race in testing conditions in Canada.

The safety car is deployed four times , but Hamilton keeps his composure amid the mayhem. Alonso goes off road four times, and finishes seventh after an unlucky break with the safety car.

Hamilton's dad Anthony is the first to congratulate his son, who opens up an eight-point lead in the world championship title race.
