  • In addition to three DRS zones there have been a number of changes to the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve for this weekend's Canadian Grand Prix

Hartley crashed out early at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve after an opening lap collision.

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.

"I think it was just a combination of things", he admitted. You can see there's a lot of flags.

"In my final lap I had a small mistake otherwise I think there was a little bit more. I am very happy with this weekend so far".

Max Verstappen has a message for Formula 1 media types.Stop telling me how to drive.Sitting 75 points behind championship leader Lewis Hamilton through six rounds of the season, Verstappen has been.

Vettel replied when told the year of Ferrari's last pole position in Canada. "It's great when you have a session like that".

Verstappen's teammate, Australian Daniel Ricciardo, ran third in practice, with Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen between them.


Lance Stroll of Montreal, the first Canadian to race in F1 since Jacques Villeneuve left in 2006, qualified 17th as his Williams team's struggles continued. It was his second Canadian GP win after 2013, when he drove for Red Bull Renault. Overtaking is relatively straightforward, speeds are high and the cars are pushed to their limits; likewise, the concrete walls punish any mistakes heavily but the drivers need the confidence to use all of the track, especially in qualifying where even the smallest of margins count.

Hamilton's bid for a record-equalling seventh victory in Montreal was compromised from the start of the race with his engine suffering from cooling problems.

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. Mercedes, Ferrari and Red Bull have dominated the field this season.

The likely reason is, at the first race the pink-striped Pirelli was used two weeks ago in Monaco, Red Bull was the only team to really extract a good race pace from it without suffering from too much graining or degradation. "But it showed in Monaco that we have a great vehicle".

"Pole position is always important", said Vettel.

"I don't know, I haven't seen much of the times of the others so it's hard to read yet". On a track like this when you have to attack kerbs so much it's important you feel at home and have confidence to play around and I think then you can extract a bit more from the auto.
