Article Body:
Fernando Alonso won last Sunday his 4th consecutive race giving him the
conquest of the Canadian Formula One Grand Prix. For Alonso who runs for
Renault was an easy victory since he started from the pole and only had a
brief challenge from the Finn Kimi Raikkonen at the beginning of the race
but Alonso held off Raikkonen’s attempt to pass him in the 12th lap.
Alonso's final margin of victory was only 2.1 seconds

Raikkonen had problems in the pits while changing the right rear tire
during his first stop and during the installation of his McLaren on
another. He was then passed by Schumacher with one lap to go.

The seven-time winner on the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, Michael
Schumacher wasn’t really a rival to Alonso since Schumacher drove his
car off the track once, brushed the wall several times and cut across the
curve on the final turn several times to take him out of contention. He
had failed to finish three of his previous four races at this event,
including last year but this time he took advantage of Kimi Raikkonen's
mistake on a hairpin turn on the next-top-last lap and took a second
place.

Raikkonen's McLaren Mercedes ended third, Giancarlo Fisichella's Renault
was fourth and Felipe Massa's Ferrari was fifth.

The dirty, slippery track didn't stop Fernando Alonso's persistent ride
toward a second straight Formula One Championship. Apparently the Circuit
Gilles-Villeneuve needs a new surface. Many pilots affirmed that the
track got worst as the race progressed and that going off the racing line
was like driving on a skating rink.

This is Alonso’s sixth win of the season, which gives him advantage of 25
points with ten races to go in the World Championship standings on his
way to next week’s U.S. Grand Prix. This is Alonso’s 15th consecutive
podium finish (top three), four podiums away from Schumacher’s record.

Next week, the Formula One moves to Indianapolis, and it is expected that
it will make up for last year's mess in which only six cars raced after
those that use Michelin tires pulled out over safety concerns.
