Controversial end to the Canadian GP
Sebastian Vettel took pole and led most of the Canadian GP, until he made a mistake on the 48th lap, rejoining the track just ahead of Lewis Hamilton, who had to take evasive action.
The stewards penalized Vettel for this, giving him a five-second penalty: the Ferrari driver crossed the line in first position, but after the penalty he was demoted to second behind Lewis Hamilton.
