20:50 

Well, a rather pedestrian high-speed race, but Lewis Hamilton is gleeful to be back on top. Thanks for your company this evening.

20:45

National anthem as Lewis Hamilton takes his spot at the top of the podium.

- 

And points for Pastor Maldonado. What a time to be alive.

70/70

That's the end of a rather tedious race. Lewis Hamilton wins, with Nico Rosberg in second, and Valtteri Bottas in third. Kimi Raikkonen takes fourth, with a great drive from Sebastian Vettel securing him fifth.

-
68/70 

Hamilton is advised to extend his advantage to 100 metres, and he's quick to check he'll be OK on fueld.

67/70 

Rosberg's now three and a half seconds behind. Barring accident, Hamilton has this race won, despite his tyres locking up every so often.

66/70 

Toto Wolff is looking glazed-eyed at his monitors, as are many people, one suspects.

65/70 

Nico Rosberg asks how Lewis Hamilton is doing on fuel. He knows perfectly well he's not allowed to be told that.

-
63/70 

Maldonado is back in seventh now - unsurprisingly he's struggling to cope with the fresher tyres, seeing as he's not pitted for nearly 50 actual laps.

62/70 

Retirement for Merhi, it seems, as he trudges back into the pits.

61/70 

Rosberg isn't making any headway into Hamilton's lead, by the way. Every time he tries, his team-mate just puts his foot down.

60/70 

Max Verstappen is looking to dart past Marcus Ericsson, who's had to hold off a lot of overtaking attempts today.

59/70 

I mean, the Mercs are half a lap in front of everyone else, so they'll be hard pushed to worry, but perhaps SOMETHING might happen.

58/70 

I think our best bet for some excitement here is Vettel, to be honest. His speed might give the leaders a little to be nervous about.

57/70 

Poor, poor Jenson Button. "We need to box this lap and retire the car," he's told.

56/70 

What a great drive from Vettel so far - past Maldonado now and into fifth, looking to close in on Kimi Raikkonen.

55/70 

Bottas's team tell him that everything's looking good to stay in third place up till the end of the race.

54/70 

Carlos Sainz is looking to overtake his senior colleague Daniel Ricciardo - and he does it.

53/70 

He won't stop again, so that'll be added on at the end.

- 

The inquiry into that impact didn't take long. A penalty for Grosjean.

52/70 

Stevens is rather unsurprisingly of a different mind. "It's so stupid. He does this every single time he overtakes, comes across in front of me. Where does he want me to go, off the track?"

51/70 

"He hit me! He hit me!" shouts Grosjean over the radio.

50/70 

What's Grosjean doing there? Looks the wrong way while overtaking Will Stevens, and punctures his rear tyre in the process - he has to pit immediately and his team are scrabbling around for tyres.

-
48/70 

Jenson Button is reassured over the radio that there's no reason that Alonso's withdrawal should affect him. It's all fine. He's only half a minute behind the car directly in front of him.

47/70 

And Alonso has finally had to retire due to the lack of power in his car.

46/70 

Aha! Nico Rosberg is praised over the radio for his brake conservation - all the better to attack.

-
44/70 

And Hulkenberg spins! Vettel's quick to say over the radio that there was no contact made - but was there enough room for Hulkenberg?

43/70 

Vettel and Hulkenberg are duelling it out now...

42/70 

Vettel is going fastest at the moment, what with the Mercs driving so conservatively.

41/70 

Radio messages indicate that Hamilton is saving fuel, Rosberg is saving his brakes (not an easy thing to do on this track, one would suspect).

-
40/70 

Those Mercedes folk are still looking worried. Perhaps this race is going to be more interesting that I was beginning to expect.

-
-
38/70 

Now Massa is into the pits, emerging ahead of Dany Kvyat.

37/70 

A groundhog is on the track, but fortunately manages to get out of the way before being thoroughly squashed at high speed.

36/70 

Vettel's in the pits again for his second stop of the race.

-
34/70 

The Mercedes team look very serious, more serious than you might expect with two cars so far ahead of the field.

33/70 

Rosberg is cutting into Hamilton's advantage here, lapping a good second faster at the moment.

32/70 

Fernando Alonso pits. Let's hope he actually re-emerges.

- 

Meanwhile, Vettel overtakes Maldonado, who's thoroughly confused and opts not to turn a corner, instead choosing to run straight on towards a wall, before realising his error.

30/70 

Rosberg's in next, and Hamilton resumes the lead.

29/70 

Now Hamilton is into the pits from the lead, and he'll be out in second.

-
28/70 

Huge spin for Kimi Raikkonen moving into a hairpin. He seems to be telling his team it's the same as happened last year - applying the throttle, power surges, and he spins. He's fine, and is advised to go back into the rhythm asap, please.

-
27/70 

Raikkonen is into the pits, and may well still be back out in fourth.

26/70 

Vettel's looking to get past Pastor Maldonado now. Keep an eye on this.

25/70 

Fernando Alonso is livid over the radio - he can't even tell what his fuel consumption is, and has decided he is just going to race.

-
24/70 

Daniel Ricciardo is in for his pit stop, softs squealing as he pulls away.

- 

And Jenson Button has been lapped. Already. What a season.

22/70 

Raikkonen is reporting a problem with the front left - will he have to move into a two-stop strategy, or can he hang on?

21/70 

"Check the front right corner, I touched with Alonso," says Vettel over the radio.

20/70 

Vettel skims off the track and towards the wall as Alonso holds him off.

19/70 

So many brilliant turns on this course - fantastic for the interest further down the field. Max Verstappen gets past Alonso, who's having some battery problems.

18/70 

Pastor Maldonado takes a pit stop, preparing for another attempt to move up.

-
16/70 

Maldonado is closing in on Nico Hulkenberg in sixth. This could be fun.

15/70 

The TV coverage is chocka with celebs this week. Latest close-up: Michael Douglas.

14/70 

Raikkonen is now about three seconds behind Rosberg. Closing in.

-
13/70 

Nico Hulkenberg is complaining about his "ugly" tyres. Time for a stop for him then.

12/70 

It's funny when the Mercedes team try to talk up how interesting it is when Rosberg and Hamilton trade fastest lap times...

- 

What? Vettel's stop was apparently tactical! Didn't work out too well with a seven-second delay, did it?

11/70 

Massa's team congratulate him, and they've now got Perez in their sights.

10/70 

Not much of interest at the head of the field, by the way. Raikkonen's about four seconds behind the Mercs.

9/70 

Defensive driving from Ericsson trying to hold off Massa on the inside, but he can't do that for long.

8/70 

Vettel's in the pits! Is that a puncture? Must be, surely, and that takes an absolute age to get done.

7/70 

The biggest race at the moment is leading up to 11th, with Ericsson currently in occupancy and Massa and Vettel chasing him.

6/70 

Hamilton takes that fastest lap right back.

-
5/70 

And interestingly Rosberg is now fastest on the track.

4/70 

Vettel's straight past Fernando Alonso as well now.

3/70 

Lock-up from Massa into the corner and Vettel is chasing him down!

- 

Hulkenberg and Maldonado have swapped places in the field.

2/70 

Poor Jenson Button is into the pits to take his drive-through penalty.

1/70 

Hamilton and Rosberg are still in front with Raikkonen behind - but there are a couple of yellow flags thanks to a little clip in the middle of the pack. Cleared quickly.

-

Here we go!

-
18:45

Anthems!

-
-
- 

Meanwhile, Lewis Hamilton has been rather reflective this weekend, talking about his first-ever win in Canada, and picking up his 44th pole here yesterday.

18:00 

So we have the Mercedes pair on the front row - but Kimi Raikkonen starts third and was horrendously disappointed to be that far back.

-
- 

Sebastian Vettel is having a terrible weekend - an extra five-place grid penalty for overtaking Roberto Mehri under a red flag during FP3.

17:00 

Good evening, all, and welcome to our LIVE coverage of the Canadian Grand Prix.
