Vettel claims pole with record lap at Canadian Prix

Max Verstappen was in a better mood after a couple of practice sessions at Formula One's Canadian Grand Prix.

"I'm pretty happy we got through the whole weekend", Ricciardo said.

The Australian lapped the unforgiving steel-lined streets of the Mediterranean principality in one minute and 11.841 seconds to outpace the Dutchman by almost two-tenths of a second with the first lap under 1:12 at the track. "The vehicle was working really well".

Kimi Raikkonen is pushed back into the garage at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve during a practice session for the F1 race in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, June 8, 2018.

Mercedes' championship leader Lewis Hamilton, chasing a record equalling seventh Canadian Grand Prix win, was fourth best ahead of his Ferrari championship rival Sebastian Vettel and team mate Valtteri Bottas.

Again, Kimi Raikkonen led the Ferrari charge in second place, but Monaco victor Daniel Ricciardo, who missed a large chunk of FP2 as mechanics rushed to fix a mechanical problem, was able to end the day third.

Mercedes and Ferrari are right behind and will try to close the gap in qualifying on Saturday afternoon.

"I guess I still know how to drive", he said across the team radio.




"They'll be hard to beat, " the Australian said.

Hamilton will take some stopping considering he's finished outside the podium places in only one of the six races so far this season.

"The tyres worked well, we were quite fast and to see it in the long run, we can be even faster".

It was here where he won his first grand prix, back in 2007, and it is a venue where he has gone on to triumph a further five times - including a hat-trick for Mercedes (2015, 2016, and 2017).

Ricciardo admitted that it was decided early to start the race using the Hypersoft Pirelli tyre opposed to the Ultrasoft that both Scuderia Ferrari and both Mercedes AMG Petronas Motorsport drivers will start on, and it should enable him and team-mate Max Verstappen to be aggressive in the opening laps and with the strategy. "The lap time, I can't say I'm too excited about". "Now we just have to break it down and get it in the best position for (qualifying)". The main thing was to get through the program, which we did.

Stroll is the first Canadian in F1 since 1997 world champion Jacques Villeneuve of St-Jean-Sur-Richelieu, Que., left the series in 2006. We learned a bit and I know the direction I want to go set-up wise.

The session stopped for three minutes after Carlos Sainz's Renault hit a barrier and spun out, then yellow flags came out when Stoffel Vandoorne broke his suspension after his McLaren touched a wall, ending his afternoon.

He has raced in the F2 series the last two seasons and now sits 10th in F2 standings after eight races this year, including a third-place finish at Baku, Azerbaijan.
