Vettel takes pole, sets lap record in Montreal

Canadian Grand Prix - Strategy guide

Fernando Alonso would have hoped to make Q3 in his 300th Grand Prix weekend, but he had to settle for P14 after finishing Q2 more than a second off the pace.

Hamilton leads Vettel by 14 points in the standings after six races and will be determined not to allow him to cut substantially into that cushion.

And then taking a sweet victory and winning the Canadian GP for the first time since Schumacher did so in 2004. After leading all three practice sessions, Red Bull driver Max Verstappen will start third, alongside Hamilton.

The Ferrari driver was back at his best in Montreal, doing enough to beat the Mercedes of Valtteri Bottas and start at the front of the grid in Sunday's race, setting a best time of 1m10.764s.

"It was a good day", Verstappen said.

"I think we can do a great job in this race, it is great to start from third".

Vettel wasn't happy about the number of cars on track unaware of the drivers approaching them on a flying lap.

In response, it downsized the US diplomatic staff in Havana and prohibited families from joining the diplomats who stayed. As a result of these unusual occurrences, the USA and Canada have both pulled diplomats out of Cuba.

It was a strong result for Bottas, who made himself the leading Mercedes driver for the weekend thanks to his better feeling for Pirelli's softest tires, but he lamented that his vehicle didn't have the pace to challenge for more. "When we got to qualifying, honestly we knew it was going to be very close as it was, but in my heart, I truly feel like we had the pace to lock out the front row, or at least I had the pace to be on the front row". Mercedes, Ferrari and Red Bull have dominated the field this season.

Red Bull continued to suffer from lack of speed down the straights as they tried to put the pressure on Ferrari, but Vettel finished the session by knocking 12 milliseconds off his own best time.

"In the race, it all calms down a bit, which is why in general we are always a bit more competitive".

On the basis of Friday practice, Sebastian Vettel does not see himself as a contender for victory even though Ferrari teammate Kimi Raikkonen set the second fastest time.

"Yeah I'm fine", Hartley told his team. It would be much more of a problem if I would be really slow, because that is a critical problem.' When pushed further to explain why he had crashed so much this year, Verstappen replied: 'Like I said I get a bit exhausted of all the questions.

"We were briefly talking about what we wanted to do, trying to figure everything out".
