Vettel ends Ferrari's 17-year wait for Canada pole

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

"I would say that Mercedes' pace was really fast today", Ricciardo said.

Vettel's performance means Ferrari will start from pole position at the Canadian Grand Prix for the first time in 17 years, and he sent a warning to his rivals.

"Overall I was happy with the session".

Bottas in P2 will need a flawless start tomorrow to challenge the Ferrari in front of him.

Red Bull's Max Verstappen pipped Lewis Hamilton's Mercedes in first practice at the Canadian Grand Prix.

If Hamilton is to secure what would be a record seventh pole in Canada on Saturday the Briton will have to squeeze more out an engine that is running in its seventh race. And I don't need to change my approach - it's just a little bit more finesse I guess.

"There would have been gains and I think it would have been a close fight for the pole with the new engine parts, but we're going to get it later", said Bottas.

Red Bull's Max Verstappen set the pace in all three practice sessions in Montreal, with Vettel struggling on Friday and saying he was unhappy with his car's handling. You could see in Monaco that we have a great vehicle and it's very unfortunate that we don't have the top speed to compete all the time. We did the best we could with it. So, great to carry momentum we've had in qualifying so far this year, even though the last race was a little bit less so.

This weekend is round seven of the 2018 Formula 1 World Championship, which takes us to Montreal's Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, home of the Canadian Grand Prix. "I was a lot happier with the auto and I think we can carry that into the race".

Vettel ended Q1 on top ahead of the Finn with Hamilton third, but it was tense for McLaren as twice former champion Fernando Alonso squeezed into Q2 at the end in 14th place ahead of team mate Stoffel Vandoorne.

One factor that could count in Mercedes' favour on Sunday is that like Ferrari - but unlike Red Bull - they made it through Q2 on the more durable ultrasoft tyre, meaning they will start the race on that compound. Grosjean failed to set a lap, while Ericsson limped back to his Sauber garage with terminal damage.

Despite his hard start to the season, Verstappen is often praised for being one of the exciting drivers and prospects in Formula 1, with many believing he's a champion waiting for his chance.

And then a quick new track record for Vettel, knocking spots off the Mercedes with 1:10.776.
