"I am very happy with this weekend so far". "Forty years after Gilles won his Grand Prix here, it's nice to show Ferrari is still alive".

Before the race on Sunday, the auto Villeneuve used in 1978 will be driven by his 47-year-old son Jacques, the 1997 world champion, to lead the ceremonial parade lap.

"I need to go deeper and deeper into this of course, but it seems no-one really knew".

Vettel was well aware of the many Prancing Pony flags in the packed grandstands at Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve as he kept the lead from pole position and coasted to victory on Sunday.

"I even watched on TV and it said 'final lap.' I asked and they said 'keep pushing.' I was a bit confused". "It's great when you have a session like that".

Souami, a father of two who immigrated from an undisclosed country in Africa in 1996, had purchased the sole winning ticket. The married father of four chose to take the money in a lump sum, so he'll get slightly more than $183 million after taxes.

Red Bull bringing Daniel Ricciardo in on Lap 18 meant an undercut on Hamilton when he returned to the track.

His engine was six races old but Hamilton would have expected better.

Sebastian Vettel has hit back at the description of the Canadian GP being boring and warned F1's "short-sighted" critics that some of the matches in football's upcoming World Cup won't be classics either.

Vettel's response to the Montreal criticism was endorsed by Mercedes rival Valtteri Bottas. The Briton has won the last three on the track that seems to suit the Mercedes auto with its heavy braking after long straightaways and tight chicanes. Eventually winning by 7.3 seconds, Vettel took the lead in the championship as Lewis Hamilton came home fifth.

"There would have been gains and I think it would have been a close fight for the pole with the new engine parts, but we're going to get it later", said Bottas. "It was pretty straightforward, and in terms of strategy we did what we wanted to do".

Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo, the 2014 Canadian GP victor, is coming off a victory two weeks ago in Monaco.

When it comes to the twisty stuff, 11 of the 14 corners are taken below 100 miles per hour, which makes it particularly hard on the brakes and tires when the cars are coming from the high-speed straights.

Ricciardo starts on the third row with the second Ferrari driven by Kimi Raikkonen. "It's unbelievable. I said yesterday how much this place means to Ferrari and to have a race like we had today is unbelievable", said Vettel. "But we have to say that Ferrari's auto, as a package, is unbelievable".

Very little in the way of overtaking in Montreal, with the safety vehicle limiting opportunities at the start and the truncated number of laps limiting them at the end.

"Fortunately we had radio, fortunately we had the lap counter in the auto, and the pit board was accurate", said Vettel.
