Sebastian Vettel takes pole position for Sunday's Canadian Grand Prix

Sebastian Vettel takes pole position for Sunday's Canadian Grand Prix

A win on Sunday would also see Hamilton draw level with F1 legend Michael Schumacher as the joint-most successful Canadian Grand Prix driver of all time on seven titles apiece.

The pair had earlier dominated morning practice to establish Red Bull as the team to beat this weekend with Ferrari and Mercedes in pursuit.

Red Bull boss Christian Horner has hinted that Red Bull Racing is ready to take a gamble on Honda power units for the 2019 Formula 1 season, with a decision set to be made before the Austrian Grand.

Max Verstappen points to a lack of top speed as Red Bull's weakness at the Canadian Grand Prix after finishing fastest in both of Friday's practice sessions. "We didn't have the smoothest day and we had what looks like an electrical problem with the engine".

Four-time champion German Sebastian Vettel of Ferrari was third ahead of current series leader and defending four-time champion Briton Lewis Hamilton of Mercedes.

"I am not happy with sixth, but am I happy with the way I drove and actually what we did, yes".

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

"We have the B-spec engine this weekend, the upgrade, and I think just configuring a few things on that, we're not necessarily aligned, so we just had to go through a little bit of trial and error".

Stroll, in his second season with Williams, posted the 19th fastest time of 1:14.703, outpacing only his Russian teammate Sergey Sirotkin. Kimi Raikkonen was second fastest for Ferrari but the competitive picture was skewed by Mercedes opting against using Pirelli's fastest compound - the hyper-soft - on either auto across both practice sessions. The vehicle has been working really well and we know in qualifying we are missing top speed.

Asked whether his Friday clean sweep meant pole position could be on the cards, Verstappen replied: "In terms of pole position, I think Mercedes will be very strong again".

"The others did a bit better but I'm not really bitter or anything at myself, I honestly did the best I could today". "But looking at where we were, it doesn't make me satisfied, but I feel like we did all we could with what we had".

Asked why he had experienced so many crashes, he paused before he said: "I don't know".

Third on the timesheet was Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo. "But we're going to get it later anyway, so that's all good". His best lap was the slowest in the field at 1:17.145, but he was there just to get the feel of an F1 auto and help the team test it on two types of tires.

"It's probably the first time in a while that we have gained really good team points so it's a good weekend from that perspective and also good for Max".
