Verstappen keeps it clean in Canada to be fastest in practice

In addition to three DRS zones there have been a number of changes to the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve for this weekend's Canadian Grand Prix

Vettel admitted after qualifying he was "a passenger" during practice but says it felt "more natural" while driving his Ferrari in qualifying.

Vettel's performance means Ferrari will start from pole position at the Canadian Grand Prix for the first time in 17 years, and he sent a warning to his rivals.

When asked about the status of the component which failed in Monaco, he said: "I wouldn't describe it as serviceable.it's not happy!"

Bottas in P2 will need a ideal start tomorrow to challenge the Ferrari in front of him.

Sebastian Vettel boosted his hopes of closing the gap to Formula One championship leader Lewis Hamilton by claiming Ferrari's first pole at the Canadian Grand Prix since 2001. Thanks to the team; thanks for fixing the auto yesterday after I hit the wall a little bit.

Before qualifying, Verstappen had posted the fastest lap in all three practice sessions. 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.

Contradicting Trump, Paul Ryan agrees no evidence of campaign spy
Matt Gaetz (R-FL) openly mused about removing Ryan from his role as House Speaker ahead of November's elections. The only Republican briefed on the intelligence who has yet to break from Trump is Rep.

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. "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". "I was a lot happier with the vehicle and I think we can carry that into the race".

Mercedes, who chose not to introduce their new upgraded power units in Montreal and struggled to extract the best from the "hyper-soft" tyre, saw Hamilton struggle to find the form that has enabled him to dominate in the past.

Vettel is winless from the last four races but he is now in a strong position to ensure that does not extend to five rounds after edging out Bottas by just eight hundredths of a second.

Hamilton tops the championship leaderboard as he pursues his fifth Formula One title.

The teams contest a race with their own rafts, built from parts found in the garages, across the rowing lake on the island that hosts the circuit, but Ferrari said they would not take part because they needed to go back and rest in their hotel.

Mercedes were first out in Q3 and smashed the records, Bottas topping Hamilton in 1:10.857 before Vettel beat that.
