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

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

Ricciardo suspects Hamilton would have been capable of a quicker time than Verstappen.

Now, Red Bull chief Christian Horner has given his support to Verstappen after he threatened the press.

The Red Bull driver turned in the quickest laps in both practice runs at the Canadian Grand Prix on Friday, when Lance Stroll of Montreal and Nicholas Latifi of Toronto gave fans a rare look at two Canadians on the track at once.

"We had what looked like an electrical problem", he confirmed.

Vettel's campaign started in spectacular fashion after he recorded back-to-back wins, but following an accident through no fault of his own with Max Verstappen in China, before falling off the track in Baku, and Mercedes and then Red Bull's resurgence in Spain and Monaco respectively, Vettel heads to Canada winless from his last four races.

"Overall I was happy with the session".

They were soon out to join the near-frenzied traffic, in which the Dutchman clocked a new record in 1:12.035, to go three-tenths clear of team-mate Ricciardo, who responded in record-breaking style.

Putin said that Washington's decision to exit the agreement could "destabilize the situation" in the region. He added that Moscow will continue to honour its obligations under the Iranian nuclear deal.

Renault introduced a new engine for all six cars in Canada, but Monaco GP victor Ricciardo trailed teammate Verstappen throughout practice, qualifying and the race. I'm looking at the positives: "we also took two points from Lewis so we're still in the championship, we're still there".

"We have the B-spec engine this weekend, the upgrade, and I think just configurating a few things on that, we're not necessarily aligned, so we just had to go through a little bit of trial and error". The tyres were holding on really well at the end when I was challenging Valtteri because he was fuel saving which shows our auto was working well and for sure we have a very competitive vehicle at the moment.

"It's all very close; disappointing to be at the tail end of that top pack but actually I don't think we could have done more." . When you feel confident with the vehicle then you can do a good job.

The good news for Ricciardo is that Red Bull thinks he can get through the weekend without needing to use a new energy recovery system. I'd say that they are the ones to beat at the moment.

"If the others are sliding around in dirty air or whatever, we should be able to get a bit more out of them".

Verstappen, who also spun out in Australia and finished sixth, said he's not going to change the approach that made him, at the age of 17, the youngest driver ever to compete in Formula One. "We knew - or we thought - Mercedes were going to qualify on the ultra, so yeah, we'll see tomorrow". 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.
