Sebastian Vettel attributes his pole position in the Canadian Grand Prix to Ferrari delivering him with an "incredible" vehicle following a hard Friday.
Hometown hero Lance Stroll could not drag the best out the Williams FW41 yet again in 2018, on his final run he locked up massively into the final chicane spoiling his final run, he was followed by team-mate Sergey Sirotkin showing further evidence of the woes the former world-champions are suffering.
Vettel steered his Ferrari over the 4.36km track in 1 minute 10.764 seconds to deprive Briton Lewis Hamilton of a record seventh pole in Montreal.
Verstappen was one of the star performers on Saturday afternoon, splitting the Mercedes drivers for a spot on the second row.
The crowds in Montreal saw the fastest ever laps on the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, and the Mercedes garage were not happy to be outstripped for speed.
It is a welcome return to form for Verstappen, who ahead of the weekend looked agitated in Thursday's press conference, half-joking that he "might headbutt" the next person to ask him about the series of crashes and incidents which have overshadowed his first six races.
Hamilton is looking to equal Schumacher's record of seven career Canadian GP wins.
"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. It will be interesting to see how it does in the start of the race, especially because Red Bull will start on the hypersoft.
Verstappen signed a long-term contract with Red Bull towards the end of the last season, keeping him at the Milton Keynes based team until 2020.
Hamilton retains a slim lead over Vettel in driver standings and will likely challenge the German when racing begins in earnest.
Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo, the 2014 Canadian GP victor, is coming off a victory two weeks ago in Monaco. "But it showed in Monaco that we have a great auto".
When it comes to the twisty stuff, 11 of the 14 corners are taken below 100 miles per hour, which makes it particularly hard on the brakes and tires when the cars are coming from the high-speed straights. "In the race, it all calms down a bit so that's why I think we're always a bit more competitive in the race".
Ricciardo, whose contract with Red Bull is up after the season, playfully refused to confirm or deny that he has been contacted by Ferrari or Mercedes.
