Canadian Grand Prix - Strategy guide

Canadian Grand Prix - Strategy guide

Vettel, who stuck his Ferrari auto on pole position with a stunning performance in qualifying by breaking the lap record with a 1:10.764, will be starting on the ultrasoft compound and said it never crossed their mind to think otherwise. A fifth-place finish was a huge blow to the British driver in the title fight. He has a 14-point lead over Vettel and a 38-point edge on Ricciardo.

The top three kept their positions from the start, with Vettel leading ahead of Mercedes driver Valtteri Bottas and Red Bull's Max Verstappen.

Hamilton will still be chasing a fourth consecutive win in Montreal Sunday to equal Schumacher's mark of seven victories at an island circuit named after Canada's late Ferrari great. But the number that will matter to Vettel is the one-point advantage he leaves Canada with.

It's Vettel's 50th career win and his third of the season.

Going into the weekend, Mercedes-AMG's Lewis Hamilton leads the 2018 Drivers' Championship with 110 points. He earned his first Formula One points with a ninth-place finish at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve a year ago.

Sebastian Vettel says he was very happy to secure pole position ahead of tomorrow's Canadian Grand Prix, but the German believed he could have gone even faster than he did.

The race was deservedly Vettel's.

Rafael Nadal clinches 11th French Open title in ‘Claywalk’
And he increased the tempo further, consigning Thiem to defeat in his first major final when the Austrian sent a return long. Look back over Rafael Nadal's Grand Slam history after his 17th major win at the 2018 French Open at Roland Garros.

"I said yesterday that this place means a lot to Ferrari and to have a race like this is unbelievable".

"No, it's never easy", said the four-time champion.

"The vehicle was incredible in qualifying and it just kept getting quicker", said Vettel, whose Ferrari team were using new engines.

"For me, it was pretty straightforward, and in terms of strategy, we did what we wanted to do". Six cars can win races and you can't take anything for granted. He was able to match Ricciardo, who finished fourth, and chased him down but with a one-stop race, tyre management to the fore and the difficulty the current cars present in closing he was - as were all of the front six - forced into what proved to be a procession.

Sebastian Vettel, who claimed a dominant lights-to-flag victory, recognised that the flag had been issued too early. "We thought Ferrari and Mercedes were going to qualify on the ultras".

Fernando Alonso would have hoped to make Q3 in his 300th Grand Prix weekend, but he had to settle for P14 after finishing Q2 more than a second off the pace.
