Vettel wins in Canada to overtake Hamilton in standings

Vettel wins in Canada to overtake Hamilton in standings

"That's why I am very happy to have qualified on pole". It kept dropping and coming back and dropping and I was like "jeez".

It is the Italian team's first time on pole in Montreal since seven-time champion Michael Schumacher managed it in 2001.

It's unlikely to be enough to make up a position on its own, but combine it with some aggressive driving through the opening corners and Max Verstappen is in a strong position to attack Valtteri Bottas and Sebastian Vettel further round the opening lap.

Vettel, who stuck his Ferrari vehicle on pole position with a stunning performance in qualifying by breaking the lap record with a 1:10.764, will be starting on the ultrasoft compound and said it never crossed their mind to think otherwise.

Bannon said China is "now on notice that Trump will not back down from even allies" complaints in his goal of "America First'". He said: "I have been Russia's worst nightmare".

The title race remains finely balanced but Ferrari will take great encouragement from victory at a circuit where Mercedes have been dominant, with Hamilton taking pole and winning for the last three years in Montreal. Mercedes sent him into the pits early to deal with the issue but unusually out of sorts at a track where he has won six times, he was then jumped during the stop by Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo and a race that had quickly become a damage-limitation exercise was proving to be a real struggle. The Briton has won the last three on the track that seems to suit the Mercedes vehicle with its heavy braking after long straightaways and tight chicanes.

"You can't come to Montreal and think it's going to be a walk in the park because that's the kind of wake-up call you get".

"This is why this year's championship is going to be decided by the one who makes the fewest mistakes, brings the best development onto the power unit of the engine on every single weekend". Grosjean will likely start the race at the back of the grid.

Verstappen believes Red Bull have some pace in hand though with more to be found overnight ahead of qualifying.

Vettel credits Ferrari turnaround for pole
Mercedes were first out in Q3 and smashed the records, Bottas topping Hamilton in 1:10.857 before Vettel beat that. Meanwhile, qualifying didn't start as planned for Romain Grosjean . "I think we can do a good job".

"We were briefly talking about what we wanted to do, trying to figure everything out".

When it comes to the twisty stuff, 11 of the 14 corners are taken below 100 miles per hour, which makes it particularly hard on the brakes and tires when the cars are coming from the high-speed straights.

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. "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". But the Finn says that it's the race strategy that could prove the decisive factor. "I think it's the right choice for our auto".
