At Montreal Vettel crossed the line first but was not the winner.

At Silverstone in 1989 Michael Schumacher was declared the winner even
though he was *sitting in the pits* at the end of the race. IIRC it turned
out that the finish line extended into the pit area and he had crossed it
before serving a time penalty.

In that case all three stewards lost their licences!

Who knows, if the stewards in Canada got it as wrong as many seem to
think they may also "volunteer" their licences.

Trump fact check:
The grand total as of Sunday: 4,913 false claims
Last week’s total: 31 false claims
That’s the 75th-worst week of his presidency out of 116 weeks so far.
