MONTREAL -- Sebastian Vettel wasnt losing any sleep over never having won the Canadian Grand Prix, but when he finally did it, he did it in style. The triple world champion for the Red Bull team pulled out to a comfortable lead from pole position and was never threatened as he added the Canadian GP to his list of 29 career Formula One victories on Sunday afternoon. The German, who has a commanding 36-point lead in drivers standings, took the chequered flag 14.4 seconds ahead of Ferrari ace Fernando Alonso, his closer pursuer on the track and in the standings. "It is important to us, but I wasnt desperate to win here," said Vettel. "I think we had strong results in the past. "It wasnt a shame coming in here not having won this race, so I wasnt desperate when I got up this morning, thinking I have to win, I have to win. But I was very pleased because its a very nice race." Vettel raced nicely himself, winning for the third time this season. After rain complicated preparations for all the teams during practice and qualifying on Friday and Saturday, there was warm, dry weather at race time. It made for one of the least eventful Canadian GPs ever, without the usual slipping and sliding into walls normally seen on the tightly cornered Circuit Gilles Villeneuve. Only two drivers -- Saubers Nico Hulkenberg and Caterhams Giedo van der Garde -- failed to finish in the 22-car field. Vettel held off Lewis Hamiltons Mercedes on the first turn from the start and pulled away. He led virtually the entire race, and had only one mishap on the 52nd of 70 laps when he cut across the grass after going into a chicane too quickly. "I was pushing hard in the beginning to open a gap," he said. "Its Canada and you usually go close to the walls. "Sometimes I was closer than I wanted, but fortunately I didnt crash." As for taking a shortcut, he said: "I could have stayed on the track but it was quite tight. I didnt want to risk a spin, so I decided to cut. I lost four or five seconds on that corner, but it was fine. It seemed the safe option." Well behind Vettel, a fierce battle raged as Alonso recovered from a disappointing qualifying by moving up from sixth place to his fourth top-two finish in seven races this year. He got past Mark Webbers Red Bull and Nico Robergs Mercedes and then zeroed in on Hamilton, the defending champion and a three-time Canadian GP winner. Alonso made a bold passing move on lap 62 that just failed, but then caught the Briton going into the first turn on the following lap. Hamilton tried desperately to catch up, but fell short. "He was very quick and it was difficult to keep him behind, but I tried my best," said Hamilton, the 2008 world champion who said he didnt have enough grip in his tires, especially during the tighter turns, to hold off Alonso. "I got closer, but he was generally too quick for me. "But its still generally a good result, considering these guys are massively quick." Vettel leads drivers standings after seven races with 132 points to 96 for Alonso, who moved past Kimi Raikkonens Lotus (88 points) into second place. Hamilton is fourth with 77. Webber finished fourth in the race ahead of Rosberg, who won two weeks ago at the incident-filled Monaco Grand Prix,. At that race McLarens Sergio Perez nearly bumped Raikkonen off the track, prompting the usually reserved Finn to say someone should punch him in the face. Alonso emphasized how much more civilized the competition was in Montreal. "It was nice to race with such talented drivers, so intelligent drivers," Alonso said. "You fight at 300 km/h and you feel safe. "Youre racing and competing. It can go your way or the other way, but this is real racing. Im happy to see this back after Monaco, where it was a bit different." There was also a surprise sixth place finish from Jean-Eric Vergne, which delighted the modest Toro Rossi squad. It was his and the teams best finish of the season. "The best result for me, of course, but also the highest finishing position since Vettels results for the (Toro Rossi) team in 2008," said Vergne. "It is even more satisfying because it was a normal race in the dry, with no one going out in front of me, so we achieved this position fair and square." Raikkonen had a miserable week. He was dropped two grid positions for ignoring a caution flag during qualifying and then suffered the ignominy of being lapped by Vettel after only 35 laps of the race. But he fought back to finish ninth and tied Michael Schumachers record of 24 consecutive races in the points. Rainy qualifying left quick and slower cars scattered through the starting grid, including rookie Valtteri Bottas in third position for Williams. There was high anticipation of what would happen at the start, particularly as cars crowd together through the first chicane. But they all got through without incident. Bottas dropped a few places and held on for several laps but finished 14th. Air Max Pas Cher Livraison Gratuite . "Trying to breathe," he said with a grin.

TORONTO -- Having played in two World Cups for the United States and finishing on the losing side of the Coppa Italia final when he was with Roma, Toronto FC captain Michael Bradley is no stranger to the big occasion.But hes also savvy enough to know that pre-game plans dont always pan out, so when he leads his team onto the field for Saturday nights MLS Cup final against the Seattle Sounders, hell be keeping an open mind.Theres no blueprint for these games, for big games, he said. You never know what to predict, you have to be ready no matter how things go to react and to not let anything faze you and to go for it.Toronto FC has certainly done that throughout these MLS Cup playoffs, setting an MLS record with 17 goals scored through their first five games. But while Jozy Altidore and former MLS MVP Sebastian Giovinco have captured most of the headlines in that regard with nine goals between them, what takes place in the middle of the field may have a bigger impact on which team lifts the trophy.Thats where Bradley will go head to head with Seattles Osvaldo Alonso and Cristian Roldan, and he knows just how important that battle will be, acknowledging that their play dictates how much freedom Seattle stars such as Jordan Morris and Nicolas Lodeiro will have.I think ultimately what goes on in the center of the field in these games goes a long way to dictating who wins, Bradley said. So its important for us to feel like in all areas in the center part of the field were taking good care of things.While Toronto coach Greg Vanney said the attacking nature of both teams could produce one of the most exciting MLS Cup finals yet, Seattle counterpart Brian Schmetzer said the matchup between Giovinco and Lodeiro could produce fireworks.Defenders have to be on their toes, he said. Nico makes sharp, quick turns. Giovinco does the same. Theyre a little different, though. Giovinco is a scorer. Nico has scored his fair share of goals, but Nico can put in those final passes.Lodeiro agreed with his coachs assessment to a point. Though they have both scored four playoff goals so far, for the Uruguayan, thats where the similarities end.Were completely different players, he said through an interpreter. The only way were alike is that were short.HIGH FIVE: Altiidore is the first player in MLS history to score in five consecutive matches in the same postseason.dddddddddddd. His five-goal total is tied for fifth-most in a single postseason, three behind the record of eight, set by Carlos Ruiz of the LA Galaxy in 2002.HAT TRICK HOPEFUL: Toronto midfielder Will Johnson is aiming to join a select group of players that have won the MLS Cup with three different teams. After previous victories with Real Salt Lake (2009) and last year with the Portland Timbers, Johnson can become the fifth player to pull off the hat trick.MORRIS CODE: It took less than a season for Morris to have a game that will live on in Sounders lore no matter Saturdays outcome.Morris goal in the second-leg of the Western Conference final against Colorado assured Seattle a spot in the championship game. Morris played that game on Nov. 30 despite illness, suffered a knee injury on the deciding goal and was playing with a slight hamstring strain suffered three weeks earlier.Morris scored in both legs of the conference finals against Colorado and had an assist in the semifinals against FC Dallas. Hes been a consistent scoring threat in the playoffs and what Seattle hoped it was getting when Morris signed with his hometown team last winter.BACK TO TORONTO: Stefan Frei was once considered the goalkeeper of the future for Toronto, before an injury that cost him nearly the entire 2012 season derailed those plans.Hes become the anchor at the back of Seattles defense and would relish in winning his first MLS Cup title at the expense of his former team.Frei and Seattles defense as a whole have been solid in the playoffs. Seattle has allowed three goals in five playoff matches, and Frei has been responsible for three shutouts.EXPANSION FINALE: The previous 20 years of MLS championship matches featured at least one team that was an original from when the league began in 1996. The Seattle-Toronto matchup is the first time two expansion teams are meeting in the championship and ensures at least one soccer hotbed market walks away with a first MLS title.---AP Sports Writer Tim Booth in Seattle contributed to this report.
