Vettel replied when told the year of Ferrari's last pole position in Canada. From the number of red flags with the prancing pony logo, the Italian squad remains the clear favourite in the grandstands.

In the Thursday press conference, Verstappen faced a barrage of questions about his approach to racing and his temperament but on Friday, he did his real talking - delivering a faultless display on a track where Red Bull was not expected to contend. 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.

It was the 300th F1 race for two-time champion Fernando Alonso of McLaren, good for fourth all-time.

Right behind him will be Vettel, who took a first Canadian pole position for Ferrari since seven-time world champion Michael Schumacher in 2001.

Vettel steered his Ferrari over the 4.36km track in 1 minute 10.764 seconds to deprive Briton Lewis Hamilton of a record seventh pole in Montreal.

"The vehicle was incredible in qualifying and it just kept getting quicker", said Vettel, whose Ferrari team were using new engines. "It's great when you have a session like that".




The German will start in the favoured position on the front row of the grid for Sunday's race alongside Valtteri Bottas of Mercedes.

Vettel struggled for pace in both practice sessions and finished the day 0.787s off the fastest time set by Max Verstappen and 0.657s off Raikkonen. Hamilton has won the Canadian race six times, including the previous three. The Briton has won the last three on the track that seems to suit the Mercedes auto with its heavy braking after long straightaways and tight chicanes.

The teams contest a race with their own rafts, built from parts found in the garages, across the rowing lake on the island that hosts the circuit, but Ferrari said they would not take part because they needed to go back and rest in their hotel. Vettel's lone pit stop on the 38th of 70 laps saw him emerge with a six-second lead. We knew that in Q3 and in general throughout the whole year with the auto, we're just lacking power. Obviously, Max showed some pace, so I think there's a bit for us to learn. "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". Daniel Ricciardo, coming off a victory two weeks ago at Monaco, lost power early in the afternoon and spent more than an hour in the garage before returning to post the third-quickest time of 1:12.603 for Red Bull.

Vettel sees another chance to honour the memory of Gilles Villeneuve, who died in a crash at the 1982 Belgian Grand Prix, with a Ferrari win.

"I don't think the hypersoft is a good race tyre. It will be very close again".
