The 2011 Canadian Grand Prix was won by Jenson Button (with six pit stops) who remarkably won the race after taking the lead in the final lap of the race. This race exceeded four hours and holds the record of being the longest F1 race in history. The previous record was held by the 1954 German Grand Prix (3 hours 45 minutes), notable for the Mercedes win for Juan Manuel Fangio.
