Canadian GP: Sebastian Vettel wins but with Mixed Joy

Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel took a dominant victory in the Canadian Grand Prix as Fernando Alonso beat Lewis Hamilton to second place. Vettel led all but three laps to take his first win in Canada as Alonso's Ferrari, which started sixth, passed Hamilton's Mercedes with nine laps to go. The race was marred by the death of a track marshal following an incident which occurred when removing the stricken Sauber of Esteban Gutierrez.

Vettel said: "It is very, very sad to hear that a marshal tragically lost his life today in Canada. The work of marshals is not always seen but it is vital to our sport and without their commitment, time and dedication there would be no motorsport. I am very, very sad to hear this news and my thoughts are with his family and friends." Gutierrez, whose car it was that the marshal was helping remove, said:  "My dearest condolences to the family of the marshal who lost his life today, our prayers for him and his family. RIP."
