Vettel credits Ferrari turnaround for pole

Vettel credits Ferrari turnaround for pole

And Hamilton, who will now have to race with the same engine he has used in the opening six races, admitted: "If the others are bringing upgrades and have got fresh engines, particularly how close we are, we won't be in position to fight for the victory". By qualifying the German was much more competitive and pulled out two impressive laps in Q3 to beat Mercedes' Valtteri Bottas by less than 0.1s, and he suggests the turnaround from yesterday's position is significant.

"Being on pole here with Ferrari means something extra", Vettel said. I had to abort; there was no chance to slalom around them. "Gilles Villeneuve, the favorite driver of Enzo Ferrari, and I think his charisma, his character that he brought to Formula One, to racing in general, is still alive today". He also won it in 2011, 2012 and 2013. "I will never change". "There was some electrical stuff going on that hindered us this morning and then this afternoon, so not the best day, but we're OK". It was a bit surprising.

In a relaxed but revealing interview conducted while playing Vettel's favourite board game, backgammon, for Sky Sports F1's exclusively live coverage of Sunday's Canadian GP, the four-time world champion talks to Ted Kravitz about his life on and away from the race track, plus what his future beyond F1 could eventually hold.

"Yesterday we felt quite competitive and the auto was behaving quite well, so we were quite confident for today's qualifying, but we were not on the pace today unfortunately", Alonso said after qualifying in 14th place.

"Hopefully we'll get a good feeling when we first take the HyperSofts for a spin in FP3 tomorrow [Saturday] and it's not too different to what we've been driving today". I feel like we had one run here, one run there to kind of get it right. "I guess I woke up the right way and what a day".

The new specifications are all designed with performance improvements in mind, but it's hard to say it has been smooth running.

"I got the job done", he said.

Verstappen arrived in Montreal amid an error-prone season and bristled at questions about his recent crash history, even threatening to head-butt any reporters who asked him about it.

But despite Red Bull picking up where they left off in Monaco, Ricciardo knows the team won't have it as easy over the next couple of days.

"I was very happy with the last qualifying lap, very happy with my first lap".

The lone Canadian driver Lance Stroll of Montreal saw his early-season woes continue with a 17th place finish in the first 20-minute qualifying session, to leave him in the next-to-last row on the race starting grid.

One of those teams that will be seeking points is Toro Rosso, who were encouraged by the performance shown by the new Honda upgrade this weekend.
