Vettel extends points lead after Canada

How did the result of the Canadian Grand Prix affect the world championship standings? Discover who won and who lost out in Montreal...

Sebastian Vettel has stretched his F1 world championship advantage to 36 points following his easy victory in the Canadian Grand Prix, but the identity of his main challenger has changed once again.

The German's 14-second win over Fernando Alonso took him to 132 points from seven rounds, while the Spaniard's battling drive to second spot – from sixth on the grid – allowed him to vault to struggling Kimi Raikkonen to claim a similar position in the overall standings, four points shy of breaking into three figures for the season.

Raikkonen slips to third overall after only adding two points to his tally in Montreal, while Lewis Hamilton closes the gap on the top three after finishing on the podium. The Briton heads to his home race just eleven points behind his Lotus rival.

In the constructors' standings, Red Bull echoes Vettel's move by stretching its lead over Ferrari to 56 points after bringing its two cars home in first and fourth places in Canada.

The Scuderia also got a double points score, with Felipe Massa taking eighth from 16th on the grid, but were outscored 37-22 by RBR.

Mercedes now lies third overall after Hamilton's podium was backed up by Nico Rosberg's fifth place, the Brackley squad leap-frogging Lotus and opening a 20-point cushion to fourth.
