Sebastian Vettel hits back at critics of 'boring' Canadian Grand Prix

"It is a shit result for us", he continued.

"We need to wake up now".

His main rival for the title, Sebastian Vettel, claimed a third win of the season and reclaimed the lead of the drivers' championship, but Hamilton was focused on the bigger picture.

The nature of the power-sensitive Circuit Gilles Villeneuve meant Mercedes arrived in Montreal as favourites, although the decision to delay its engine upgrade until the next race in France appeared to swing the initiative back in Ferrari's direction.

Very little in the way of overtaking in Montreal, with the safety vehicle limiting opportunities at the start and the truncated number of laps limiting them at the end. I think this is - we've had it in the past - a major wake up call for every single member of the team.

Despite Montreal's reputation for serving up enthralling contests, Sunday's race - in which the Ferrari driver cruised to victory and back to the top of the Drivers' World Championship standings - is unlikely to live long in the memory with the race's most talked-about incident being its early end. This is a track where we should have maximised points.

"You need to get the right balance between pushing the development very hard and adding performance to the auto and at the same time keeping reliability", Wolff said. That's what we always look forward to, but it can't just always continue to go up and get better. "It's a great result for all the team, but I think I could have been even faster". Hamilton came within a second of challenging Ricciardo late in the race, but then encountered fuel troubles.

Having already voiced his displeasure with a lack of racing action in Monaco, Hamilton had more criticism for the state of Formula 1 following a lackluster fifth place finish in Montreal.

Hamilton had held on to fourth position at the start but an overheating engine and intermittent losses of power prompted Mercedes to pit him earlier than planned. "I couldn't get the temperatures down, so I just thought it was going to fail", he said. It doesn't matter where I start on the grid, I don't look at any driver and say "oh I might lose to that person".

"It is definitely more fun when you have more engines. We can not take anything for granted and think it is going to be a walk in the park".
