  Sport Formula 1: Sweet Canadian Grand Prix turns sour for Hamilton What should have been a sweet victory at the Canadian Grand Prix for Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes on Sunday, instead left a bitter taste when the crowd turned on the Briton after a controversial penalty gifted him a milestone win.

  Hamilton's seventh win on the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve equalled Michael Schumacher's record but it came only after Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel, who had led from pole to chequered flag, was demoted to second place by a five second penalty.

  After the race even Hamilton admitted the manner of victory did not bring him the usual joy.

  Having recorded his first grand prix victory on the island circuit in 2007, Montreal has long been a special place for Hamilton and one he regularly praises as one of top races on the circuit.
