Vettel certainly wasn't convinced that Red Bull had made the right call starting tomorrow's race on the hypers. Constantly today going into that corner I was struggling to get the auto stopped, be it front locking or rear locking, so it was quite messy.
When asked by Motorsport.com how the trial run went, Grosjean said: "Very painful!"
"I was just anxious, I told them on the last lap, so people don't jump on the track, waving flags and celebrating, because we are still going at full pace".
Sebastian Vettel led from the pole to the checkered flag - and then some - to claim a long-awaited Ferrari victory at the Canadian Grand Prix.
Lewis Hamilton, this season's championship leader, qualified fourth while native Montrealer Lance Stroll failed to make the first cut of qualifying and posted the 17th-best time of the day.
The team took some time to find its pace over the weekend with Vettel not fully at ease with the vehicle until qualifying when he found the set-up he wanted to deliver an impressive pole, from which he dictated the race and converted into an equally impressive win. "It's great when you have a session like that".
Speaking to Austrian channel ORF, Wolff said that there was nothing positive to take away from the result - as he brushed off suggestions Valtteri Bottas's second placed finish was damage limitation.
The error had a small ramification on how the race will be recorded in the history books: it meant Daniel Ricciardo lost the fastest lap of the race he had set on lap 70, meaning that accolade went to Red Bull teammate Max Verstappen.
Stroll, 19, was in is second Canadian GP. Six cars can win races.
The semi-permanent track combines long straights with tight chicanes and each team sets up their vehicle to maximize straight line speed, although the cars also need to deliver a good ride over the relatively tall curbs. "It is more that we have seen today a Ferrari that has been the stronger vehicle, stronger in qualifying, stronger in the race, and at no time did we have a real chance to fight for the win". Mercedes, Ferrari and Red Bull have dominated the field this season.
"We knew that, in general, we're lacking power, so we just try to compensate with that", said Verstappen. They'll say "next car", that sort of thing.
The pair fought over the position race long, but with even pace, Hamilton had no way past the Australian and settled for fifth. I think we do our job inside the vehicle and if we can race, we race but obviously, we also do our job inside the auto and try to avoid racing.
Finn Kimi Raikkonen finished sixth in the second Ferrari.
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.
"Today we're not the favourites", Vettel said.
"I thought it was going to fail".
"It was a bit different, it was a bit mixed today so I'm not entirely happy with the feel inside the vehicle yet".
