Vettel regains championship lead with crushing Canadian GP win

Before the race, 1997 champion Jacques Villeneuve drove the No. 12 Ferrari his late father Gilles used to win the 1978 Canadian GP in the parade lap.

When asked if he felt Red Bull had the pace for pole after seeing teammate Daniel Ricciardo go quickest in Q2, he said: "I knew we had a good auto, but I wanted to wait and see how competitive we would be in Q3".

Max Verstappen has a message for Formula 1 media types.Stop telling me how to drive.Sitting 75 points behind championship leader Lewis Hamilton through six rounds of the season, Verstappen has been.

The Ferrari driver was back at his best in Montreal, doing enough to beat the Mercedes of Valtteri Bottas and start at the front of the grid in Sunday's race, setting a best time of 1m10.764s.

Lance Stroll of Montreal, the first Canadian to race in F1 since Jacques Villeneuve left in 2006, qualified 17th as his Williams team's struggles continued. 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 Finn added: "It's always annoying when it's so close and we're not ahead - but starting on the front row is good for this race".

Hamilton retains a slim lead over Vettel in driver standings and will likely challenge the German when racing begins in earnest.

Daniel Ricciardo was sixth fastest, lapping just two-hundredths of a second off Raikkonen.

"We extracted the best we could out of qualifying", Verstappen said.

The semi-permanent track combines long straights with tight chicanes and each team sets up their auto to maximize straight line speed, although the cars also need to deliver a good ride over the relatively tall curbs.

We'll give you a few pointers shortly in what to look out for in today's race but it could once more be an interesting one for strategy, with how long each driver can make the hypersoft and ultrasoft tyres last a critical aspect. In the Constructors' Championship, Mercedes leads with 178 points, Ferrari is second with 156 points and Red Bull is third with 107 points. 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's a great result for all the team, but I think I could have been even faster".
