Vettel takes pole, sets lap record in Montreal

Vettel takes pole, sets lap record in Montreal

But the four-time world champion said it could have been worse. Some of the marshals were already celebrating.

Daniel Ricciardo, a victor two weeks ago in Monaco in another race panned for being boring, brought his Red Bull in third, just ahead of defending champion Lewis Hamilton's Mercedes.

All this left Vettel in command after 40 laps, 5.7 seconds clear of Bottas with Verstappen third ahead of Ricciardo, Hamilton and Raikkonen.

"This is why this year's world championship will be decided by the team who makes the least mistakes, brings the best development on the engine every single weekend".

Nobody had an answer for Vettel's pace as the top three finished in grid order, with Mercedes' Valtteri Bottas fighting off a brief challenge by Red Bull's Max Verstappen at the start, before settling into second place, where he finished.

"I was just anxious, I told them on the last lap, so people don't jump on the track, waving flags and celebrating, because we are still going at full pace". Hamilton has won the Canadian race six times, including the previous three.

"The only feeling I have is that we have to wake up".

"First of all, we could not use our new engine, which is a part of it", he said. We all know we're on lap 69, but to someone who is a slightly more casual observer, they might think "oh, this must mean it's the last lap". "So I tried it all but I wasn't sure until the end if it was enough". Force India's Esteban Ocon finished ninth, while Sauber's Charles Leclerc completed yet another solid race to finish in 10th, his third points finish of the season.

The only other incident was a major first-lap collision between Williams' Lance Stroll and Toro Rosso's Brendon Hartley, with the pair coming together through Turn 6, the contact sending Hartley's STR13 riding the crash barriers.

The Brit will get the chance to retake the championship lead at the France Grand Prix on June 24. Both cars were badly damaged but the drivers were uninjured.

"This is a power circuit and there is power lost over an engine life". It was his second Canadian GP win after 2013, when he drove for Red Bull Renault.

"Yesterday the auto balance was great into Turn Ten", he continued, "and usually the last sector is my strongest at this track, but I was just struggling with massive bumps into Turn Ten".

It was the 300th F1 race for two-time champion Fernando Alonso of McLaren, good for fourth all-time.

Hamilton suffered with a power unit issue in the opening laps and was forced into an early stop where his team resolved the problem by removing some cooling vents.
