Vettel credits Ferrari turnaround for pole

Vettel credits Ferrari turnaround for pole

"I got the job done", Vettel said.

Vettel was delighted with his lap, which was Ferrari's first pole in Canada since 2001.

"It's just been a hard day", he said after unexpectedly being out-qualified by team mate Bottas.

Mercedes' decision to choose the fewest number of hyper-soft tyres for this weekend out of all the teams may have contributed as neither driver had tried them until Saturday morning, but Hamilton can not blame only that as Bottas ended up on the front row.

Vettel edged Hamilton's Mercedes team-mate Valtteri Bottas by just 0.093 seconds as Red Bull's Max Verstappen snuck ahead of Hamilton with his final lap.

Verstappen's mistakes means he now has a 75-point gap to championship leader Lewis Hamilton in the drivers' standings and he admits he will struggle to close it without a big boost in performance from Red Bull's engine supplier Renault. Thanks to the team; thanks for fixing the vehicle yesterday after I hit the wall a little bit. The Dutchman had topped all three practice sessions leading into qualifying.

Hamilton has a superb record in Montreal and victory on Sunday would see him match Michael Schumacher's haul of seven wins at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve. Overtaking is relatively straightforward, speeds are high and the cars are pushed to their limits; likewise, the concrete walls punish any mistakes heavily but the drivers need the confidence to use all of the track, especially in qualifying where even the smallest of margins count.

Meanwhile, qualifying didn't start as planned for Romain Grosjean. "I think we can do a good job".

Vettel ended Q1 on top ahead of the Finn with Hamilton third, but it was tense for McLaren as twice former champion Fernando Alonso squeezed into Q2 at the end in 14th place ahead of team mate Stoffel Vandoorne.

The Red Bull has looked quick all weekend and Verstappen believes his auto will be better in the race especially as they are starting on the soft tyre. "I've always been fast and the pace is there every single weekend".

"I'm really exhausted of all the comments about me - that I should change my approach", he said.

The Ferrari driver went on to claim pole position at Montreal on Saturday, and he progressed from Q2 with the ultrasoft tyre, meaning he avoids having to start the race on the more fragile hypersoft.
