Motor racing-Hamilton takes controversial win in Canada after Vettel penalty
MONTREAL, June 9 (Reuters) - Lewis Hamilton won the Canadian Grand Prix for Mercedes in controversial fashion on Sunday after Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel crossed the finish line first but was handed a five-second penalty.
The victory was championship leader Hamilton's record-equalling seventh in Montreal and a seventh in seven races this season for Mercedes.
"That is not the way naturally I wanted to win," said Hamilton over the radio.
Ferrari's Charles Leclerc finished third, behind Vettel. (Writing by Alan Baldwin in London, editing by Clare Fallon)
