Hamilton Becomes Seventh Winner in Seven Races autosport.com

Lewis Hamilton finally took his first victory of the 2012 Formula 1 season as the McLaren driver charged back to pass the one-stopping Fernando Alonso’s Ferrari and win the Canadian Grand Prix for the third time in his career.

The result also makes Hamilton the seventh different race winner in as many GPs this year, extending the record.

Lotus’s Romain Grosjean and Sauber’s Sergio Perez took the second podium finishes of their careers as they demoted the fading Alonso, who eventually dropped to fifth.

Montreal never disappoints. What a great race.

The provisional driver’s points put Hamilton in the lead with 88, Alonso at 86, and Vettel at 85. Incredible season so far.
