The Chinese Grand Prix ended two laps earlier than scheduled after the chequered flag was mistakenly waved before the end of the race. Incredibly, the embarrassing blunder greeted the leader, and eventual winner, Lewis Hamilton

Sebastian Vettel won Sunday's Canadian Grand Prix in Montreal, and he didn't even need to finish the race.

The Formula 1 race was found itself in an awkward situation when Canadian model Winnie Harlow waved the checkered flag before the race actually was supposed to end.

When the flag was waved early, a frustrated Vettel was worried that people would run onto the track with racers still driving at full speed. He said via eveningexpress.co.uk:

"I told my team on the last lap so people would not jump on the track to celebrate. Some of the marshals were already celebrating. They peaked a bit early."

Harlow would post on Instagram that race officials mistakenly told her to wave the checkered flag before the race had ended.
