Canadian Grand Prix practice clean sweep for Max Verstappen

Canadian Grand Prix practice clean sweep for Max Verstappen

"Today was a good day, the auto is working very well".

A day after Verstappen half-jokingly threatened to head-butt anyone who asked him about recent crashes, the Dutchman completed the 4.36km lap in 1 minute, 12.198 seconds.

"It's hard to judge our single lap pace from today as we haven't run the HyperSoft and some of our closest competition looked to have had less than ideal sessions".

Red Bull's Max Verstappen snapped after he was repeatedly asked about the crashes he has been involved in recently. I think we need a little bit of time to understand the full picture but as I said I'm not yet happy with the vehicle.

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. It was the best time in Friday afternoon's (Saturday NZ time) practice and a full second better than his best lap in the morning, when he was also the fastest.

Hamilton, Vettel and Ricciardo are the only three drivers who have topped podiums so far in 2018, although the Finnish pair of Valtteri Bottas (Mercedes) and Raikkonen have looked like threats at times. "If I get any more I might headbutt someone", Verstappen told reporters.

Trooper Michael Patterson pulled over retired Piscataway Police Officer Matthew Bailly on Friday in Kingswood. Paterson soon learned that Bailly was a retired cop from Piscataway, New Jersey, where Patterson grew up.

Ferrari duo Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen were not particularly happy with their opening showing at the first two practice sessions in Canada. Team-mate Sainz put the back end of his vehicle into the wall early in the afternoon and managed just nine laps. Sainz finished behind Stoffel Vandoorne in the standings; the Belgian was the other casualty of the session, breaking his rear suspension after hitting the wall through on the exit of Turn 8. "It was waiting, waiting, waiting and eventually we got out. A few mistakes, especially Monaco and China, but it doesn't make sense to keep talking about it".

"Now he (Verstappen) is in the spotlight. any small error now I think he's probably going to get a little picked apart from", Ricciardo said.

Latifi was named reserve driver by Force India this season after holding a similar position with Renault.

The 20-year-old has been badgered about his decision-making all year - and he finally snapped during Thursday's press conference ahead of the Canadian Grand Prix.

Verstappen has failed to finish in two of the six races this season with a best result of third in Spain last month.
