Sebastian Vettel's third Formula 1 win of the season in the Canadian Grand Prix was arguably his most important one, as the latest edition of The Autosport Podcast explains.

Vettel's victory came at a circuit Mercedes and Lewis Hamilton consider their own, which explains why the team was so downbeat after watching Vettel take his 50th F1 win.

James Roberts and Glenn Freeman join Edd Straw to look back at the race, the chequered flag farrago and delve into how Vettel and Ferrari bounced back from a difficult Friday to prevail in the race.

There's also praise for Max Verstappen, which has been rare this season, and a look at how likely Red Bull is to link up with Honda.

With Charles Leclerc taking his third points finish in four races for Sauber, we ask if he's already done enough to earn a shot at a Ferrari seat for 2019.
