Formula One: Vettel takes Canadian GP pole with lap record

Formula One: Vettel takes Canadian GP pole with lap record

Asked what he needed to do in Montreal to avert a repeat, where the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve's infamous "Wall of Champions" awaits the unwary, he replied: "Not hit the wall".

Verstappen completed the 2.71-mile (4.36-km) lap at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in 1 minute, 13.302 seconds.

For the last three years Hamilton has put his Mercedes at the front of the grid but on Sunday it will be his Ferrari championship rival Sebastian Vettel holding the edge while the Briton will start from fourth. "And I think if I get a few more, I'll head-butt someone".

"Even this morning we struggled a little bit, the first run we had some more issues". I think the highest minimum speed is 140kph, so we knew coming here it would be hard and the characteristics would be a problem. Obviously if something happens in practice then we will probably have to take one, but no is the answer today.

"I guess, it could come as soon as Paul Ricard. The vehicle was incredible, and it just kept getting quicker". "But it was fantastic".

Celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain found dead at age 61
Bourdain's death is the second high profile suicide this week, following beloved American fashion designer Kate Spade on Tuesday. Meanwhile, business analyst Darren Rovell tweeted , "Devastated to learn of Anthony Bourdain , whom I admired from afar".

Verstappen's decision-making has been challenged following crashes at Baku, when he and Ricciardo took each other out of contention for the podium, and at Monaco, when the Dutchman missed qualifying after crashing at the end of the third practice session. "But as I said at the start, I am exhausted of these questions and if I get any more I am going to head-butt someone". You could see in Monaco that we have a great vehicle and it's very unfortunate that we don't have the top speed to compete all the time. "In the race, it all calms down a bit so that's why I think we're always a bit more competitive in the race".

"It's such a fun track to drive and we didn't have any problems, I really enjoyed it", said Hamilton, who claimed his first career Grand Prix victory in Montreal and has won the last three straight races on the island circuit. But I just struggled in the session and couldn't pull it through. "The laps weren't great laps", said the Mercedes driver, like Vettel a four times champion.

This power-hungry, hard-braking circuit suits Mercedes and their V6 engine, with the last non-Mercedes win being Daniel Ricciardo's triumph in 2014 in the Red Bull auto.

"Sebastian simply did a better job when it counted in Q3", added Hamilton.

The Ferrari and Mercedes drivers will start the race on the ultrasoft Pirellis, having used that compound to set their fastest times in Q2, with Red Bull and the rest of the top 10 using hypersofts. "We improved during the day, but it was not easy and we have had easier days than this!" I wasn't really happy with the vehicle, we had some problems and I couldn't get the rhythm. The French driver was headed for the track from pit lane when his engine blew in a cloud of smoke. The one from the failure in China is alive, hence we haven't got a penalty.
