Lewis Hamilton reigns in Canada again!

Lewis Hamilton's sensational record at the Canadian Grand Prix continued as he took a huge bite out of Sebastian Vettel's lead in the Formula One drivers' standings.

Sounds bad, but they'd committed 20 and 18 turnovers in games 2 and 3 - both Golden State wins. It's risky, and not for the faint of heart. I want to see how it feels to win one at home.
