Ten of the best pictures which tell the story of the 2015 Canadian Grand Prix weekend.

Lewis Hamilton

Rain fell heavily during the second practice session on Friday. Mercedes, already under fire for the pit call which cost Lewis Hamilton victory in Monaco, made the surprising decision to send both their drivers out to do practice starts using intermediate tyres. Hamilton had just been told to switch to full wets when he aquaplaned at the turn ten hairpin and hit the barrier.

Daniel Ricciardo

Daniel Ricciardo gets close to the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve’s infamous Wall of Champions.

Will Stevens

Things seem to be picking up at Manor – they recently announced several new appointments to their technical staff and the cars featured two new sponsors in Montreal.

Pastor Maldonado

Pastor Maldonado’s stiffly-sprung Lotus raises its front-left wheel in the air. Maldonado’s luck finally changed in Canada and he scored his first points of 2015.

Kimi Raikkonen

Foliage isn’t a big feature of many new F1 tracks, but there’s plenty of it on the Isle Notre Dame. Kimi Raikkonen is spied between the leaves on Saturday.

Daniel Ricciardo

Last year’s winner got a warm reception from one of the Canadian marshals.

Fernando Alonso

Fernando Alonso put his McLaren 13th on the grid and got up to 11th at the start – but it was a painful race after that. Every one of the other cars in this picture overtook him at some stage as he backed off to save fuel in his McLaren. He made his frustration clear on the radio, and soon afterwards an exhaust failure put him out.

Marcus Ericsson

Having started 18th due to a combination of technical problems in qualifying and a penalty for ignoring a red flag, Sebastian Vettel arrived on the tail of Felipe Massa and Marcus Ericsson early on. He headed for the pits to make an early tyre change on lap eight – only to lose more time with a slow stop.

Valtteri Bottas

After Raikkonen spun away third place, Valtteri Bottas capitalised to deliver the first podium of 2015 for Williams.

Lewis Hamilton

    Looks like Manor have better photographers than aero engineers!!!

    1. +1 @ericok excellent pictures mate

      I was somewhat hoping that groundhog eluding Felipe’s Williams make it to the top ten :-)

  5. No picture of the burly Hamilton fan in a brown shirt?

    He was static when LH did his VL, and hyperbole fanatics in 2015 are rare.

  6. Great Photos you have here. Keep it up
