Sebastian Vettel sets course record to claim pole for Montreal Grand Prix

Grant SmithJun 10, 2018

When asked after qualifying if he considered using the hypersoft to start the race, and if he was anxious about Red Bull's strategy, Vettel said: "No, no".

Red Bull topped both practice sessions yesterday, courtesy of Max Verstappen. In Bahrain, he punctured a tire while trying a risky move to overtake Hamilton, who called the move "silly" and part of a pattern of mistakes.

Raikkonen was only one-tenth of a second off the pace set by Verstappen, but said it was an uncomfortable day's work.

The weather is also often an issue at the Canadian Grand Prix.

Villeneuve drove for Ferrari for five years, claiming six victories, before he was tragically killed in qualifying for the 1982 Belgian GP, and Vettel savoured claiming the Scuderia's first pole in Montreal since 2001. I guess I woke up the right way. "I will never change".

The world champion improved on his final lap but was still 0.232secs off the pace.

The Dutchman's litany of misjudgments means that with less than a third of the season gone, he already trails championship leader Lewis Hamiton by 75 points.

Ricciardo and Verstappen clearly have a better relationship than most Formula 1 teammates, but it could well turn sour if the latter fails to clean up his act soon.

"Our goal is to finish every single race so I'm hoping for the reliability and I can try and make the difference on the track with my driving". Because he has already used the allotment of two, replacing it would have saddled him with a grid penalty. "But no, for now", he said on Thursday. "For now, we still have enough parts to run, and if it runs reliable we will do the whole weekend with it". "It was more I was encouraging him to come and have a few beers but he said "maybe it's best you drink today and I'll just chill out".

"Now he's in the spotlight, the P3 crash [in Monaco] wasn't a small error, but any small error now he is probably going to get a little bit picked apart from", he said, per Sky Sports. "If we can escape this weekend without it, I'd rather take it somewhere else". Although a faster vehicle is one of his goals for next year, he was also asked if his success this season has increased his asking price.

"I don't think it was anything to do with the engine".
