Sebastian Vettel wins Canadian Grand Prix for 50th career victory

Canadian Grand Prix - Strategy guide

The Ferrari man started on pole and lead throughout around Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, where Hamilton had triumphed in each of the past three seasons. From the number of red flags with the prancing pony logo, the Italian squad remains the clear favourite in the grandstands.

As he returned to the pits after his final Q3 attempt, Verstappen was congratulated over the radio by Red Bull boss Christian Horner, to which he replied: "I guess I still know how to drive!"

"I think his charisma, the character he brought to Formula One and racing in general, is still alive today". He left a heritage, so I think the people who fell in love with motorsport back then are still there, and their kids and grandchildren.

"I don't know, I haven't seen much of the times of the others so it's hard to read yet".

It's often the best race of the year.

It is the Italian team's first time on pole in Montreal since seven-time champion Michael Schumacher managed it in 2001. We did the best we could with it. "It's great when you have a session like that".

Red Bull's Max Verstappen, under pressure to clean up his act after a string of crashes and costly errors, has clocked the fastest time in both free practice sessions for the Canadian Grand Prix.


That was enough to put him 29 thousandths of a second ahead of Brendon Hartley's Toro Rosso, which is running the upgraded Honda engine package. 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.

He is likely to hope that Bottas can play a key role in keeping Vettel within reach in what may be a very tactical race in which tyres play a big part.

He retired in Azerbaijan after a collision with Ricciardo and in China he tangled with Hamilton and Vettel, finishing fifth after a 10-second penalty demoted him from fourth, while Ricciardo won the race.

Stroll, 19, was in is second Canadian GP. We knew that in Q3 and in general throughout the whole year with the vehicle, we're just lacking power. I think it showed in Monaco that we have a great auto and again here.

"In the race, it all calms down a bit, which is why in general we are always a bit more competitive". He sits sixth in the standings some 75 points behind leader Lewis Hamilton and with less than half the number of his Australian Red Bull team-mate Daniel Ricciardo. "But as I said at the start, I am exhausted of these questions and if I get any more I am going to head-butt someone".

"I'm really exhausted of all the comments about me - that I should change my approach", he said.
