Verstappen posts more fast times in Canadian GP practice

'If I get a few more I'll head-butt someone' - F1 driver snaps over line of questioning

If I get any more questions on my crashes I will head-butt someone, says Max Verstappen

"I'm excited to try to build on the history I have here", said Hamilton, who clinched his maiden F1 win in Canada in his debut year in 2007 and has enjoyed an unbeaten run there for the last three years. Yesterday I wasn't really in charge, I was more of a passenger. 'I will never do that because it has brought me to where I am right now, and after the race it is not the right time to talk. "The auto was incredible in qually". On my final lap, I had a small mistake. "But it was fantastic".

Verstappen, who made a sensational teenage arrival in F1 with a victory on his debut with Red Bull at the 2016 Spanish Grand Prix, crashed in practice at the Monaco Grand Prix two weeks ago and had to start from the back of the grid.

The Dutchman will line up third.

Daniel Ricciardo said sixth on the grid for the Canadian Grand Prix felt better than it looked on paper after a weekend spent chasing his tail on set-up.

Mercedes' chief race engineer Andrew Shovlin said: "Overall we've had a fairly straightforward day, the vehicle has run reliably and it was just the red flags and virtual safety cars that caused us to have to adapt the plan a little".

"I think they'll be at this stage hard to beat", he admitted, "but I think we can still improve the vehicle a lot, do more laps, learn a bit more and I think we'll be okay".

Vettel steered his Ferrari over the 2.71-mile (4.36-km) track in 1 minute, 10.764 seconds to deprive Lewis Hamilton of a record seventh pole in Montreal.

"We were not quick enough today in qualifying", Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff said after Q3, perhaps slightly overlooking Bottas' position on the front row.

The Finn added: "It's always annoying when it's so close and we're not ahead - but starting on the front row is good for this race".

The Ferrari and Mercedes drivers will start the race on the ultrasoft Pirellis, having used that compound to set their fastest times in Q2, with Red Bull and the rest of the top 10 using hypersofts.

"I don't think the hypersoft is a good race tyre, so I'm a bit surprised that both of the Red Bulls chose that - but I guess they have their reasons".

Hamilton said: "I believe that the gap in the time sheets is down to the different tyre choices today, but we will find out tomorrow [Saturday]".

The failure added to a miserable weekend for Grosjean, who has yet to score a point this season and damaged his auto slightly during Friday's free practice when he struck a groundhog. "But for sure qualifying is not as important as Sunday so we've got to go well then too".

It was another disappointing day for Williams and young Canadian driver Lance Stroll, who once again found himself anchored at the bottom of the timesheet in 20th place.
