Canadian Grand Prix: Max Verstappen fastest in first practice

Canadian Grand Prix: Max Verstappen fastest in first practice

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. "But as I said at the start, I am exhausted of these questions and if I get any more I am going to head-butt someone". It is impossible to be flawless at every one. "The hyper seems to require something different to the ultra and the others, but we will see tomorrow".

Formula One's youngest race victor arrived in Montreal under attack from all corners, after an incident-filled start to the season that has seen the 20-year-old reach the podium once in six races while Ricciardo has recorded a pair of wins. These facts meant achieving pole was more special than usual for the four-time champion. A year later, he won the Spanish Grand Prix and became the youngest victor in F1 history. The circuit, a layout of fast straights broken up by quick chicanes and hemmed in by concrete barriers, has tended to play to the horsepower advantage of their vehicle.

"This is going to make the difference between winning and losing the weekend". Force India would usually point to Mercedes power as giving them an advantage on the long straights in Canada, but with Renault bringing an update and the Mercedes new power unit delayed, the gap is smaller at this race.

As a result, neither Hamilton nor Bottas set any times on the pink-striped tyre during the qualifying simulation programme and instead stuck to the ultrasoft and supersoft options. "It was waiting, waiting, waiting and eventually we got out". Sebastian Vettel will certainly be hoping so.

It is now slated for introduction at the next race in France, but Ferrari, Renault and Honda all have upgrades in Canada.

I nearly quit acting because of sexism in Hollywood: Sandra Bullock
Sandra said, "We had over a year and a half to just really get to know each other and just fall in love with each other ". Sandra Bullock plays Debbie Ocean (worst drag name ever?) sister of Danny, who, by the way, is dead now.

That could pave the way for teammate Max Verstappen, under fire for a spate of collisions and crashes, to turn the page on his season.

The Red Bull driver has been involved in incidents at every one of the six race weekends this year, but claimed it was not "as dramatic as people say". I think I've had interesting races here, very entertaining races, fun races.

"Obviously it's a bit frustrating to be at the tail end (of the top six), but I think honestly we what we had I really felt I didn't do a bad job".

Hamilton added: "Straight out of the box today I think we started right with the vehicle set-up". The Canadian teenager heads into it on the back of a frustrating weekend in Monaco where he finished two laps down and dead last.

Although the circuit does not suit the auto, that isn't denting Fernando Alonso's optimism for the race, with the Spaniard confident McLaren will still recover to finish in the top 10 after a strong showing on Friday.
