Lewis Hamilton crashes into both rival Mark Webber and teammate Jenson Button, while a track official falls across the track...check out our video highlights of the Canadian Grand Prix.

The Canadian Grand Prix proved to be a wash out with heavy rains delaying the race and causing trackside mayhem for teams.

Title favourite Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel couldn’t hold on to his lead and was ultimately undone by McLaren’s Jenson Button.

Vettel caved in to pressure from a dogged pursuit by Button, allowing the McLaren ace to claim his first win of the 2011 Formula 1 season.
Button's race could so easily have been ended by team mate Lewis Hamilton who crashed into him. Hamilton also managed to take out Red Bull rival Mark Webber in the rain soaked race.

The Grand Prix mayhem wasn't left to just the F1 drivers as a track official had his share of mishaps. A race marshal was spotted running across the track in an attempt to clear debris from the Montreal track, when he tripped and fell not once, but twice. Fortunately the marshal managed to pick himself up and walk off avoiding F1 cars racing behind him.
