Vettel and Raikkonen subdued after hard day for Ferrari

'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

Bottas lost another place in the closing stages when Sebastian Vettel put in a late run on hypersofts, initially going seventh with his first attempt before climbing to fourth on his next try. From the number of red flags with the prancing pony logo, the Italian squad remains the clear favourite in the grandstands.

"I've been watching Formula One for a long time and we're going to see our first Formula One race", said Glynn Cornwall, a fan from Toronto who made the trek with his son and a friend. Circuit Gilles Villeneuve... Gilles is huge for Ferrari and Canada is linked to that name.

"Others have, [I've] seen some that have degraded a lot, some haven't".

"I am not happy with sixth, but am I happy with the way I drove and actually what we did, yes".

Before the race on Sunday, the vehicle Villeneuve used in 1978 will be driven by his 47-year-old son Jacques, the 1997 world champion, to lead the ceremonial parade lap. "Ferrari did a better job today and that's just the way it is".

He said he was looking forward to taking his vehicle "for a spin" on "hyper-soft" tyres on Saturday. "It's great when you have a session like that".

The Mercedes of Valtteri Bottas will also start in the front row.

And he made clear that extends to the current deal the U.S.is renegotiating with its continental neighbours, Canada and Mexico. But Trump insisted it would be an "asset" to have Vladimir Putin back at the summit table. "And it's going to stop".


Raikkonen had been a contender for the leading positions throughout the session at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, and occupied third spot after the first runs, while Ferrari team-mate Sebastian Vettel held provisional pole.

"This is a power circuit so it was our target (to have the new engine) and it definitely would have been helpful", said Hamilton, who is aiming for a record-equalling seventh victory in Canada tomorrow. 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. "I wasn't really happy with the auto, we had some problems and I just couldn't get the rhythm", said Vettel, who can take his 50th F1 victory on Sunday.

"We have the pace to take the fight to Ferrari and Mercedes". The German, Hamilton and Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo have all taken two wins apiece so far this year. "We had some problems this morning, they tried to fix it during lunch, but it didn't improve, so yeah, we had to try and fix that", he said. "But it showed in Monaco that we have a great auto".

"I think we looked quite competitive and it was a positive start to the weekend".

He edged Kimi Raikkonen's Ferrari at 1:12.320.

"Would it have been enough to qualify for pole or Lewis to qualify on the front row we don't know but again it is one of the things that probably would have changed the overall outcome".

'You know, I get really exhausted of all the comments of me that I should change my approach, ' said Verstappen, who recovered to finish in the points in Monaco.
