The auto all weekend has been really strong, every session we made progress with the vehicle and I'm feeling confident on the track.

"Yesterday was really hard but being on pole here with Ferrari means something extra". "I think it would have been a close fight for the pole with the new engine".

The result means Hamilton will start from behind the front-row in Montreal for the first time in seven years.

Pole position qualifier Sebastian Vettel talks in the press conference after qualifying.

"There was no chance to go slalom around them".

Vettel is in his 12th season of F1 and long established as one of the sport's most successful drivers thanks to four world titles in a row between 2010 and 2013 plus 49 race wins, two of which have come this season. "The hyper seems to require something different to the ultra and the others, but we will see tomorrow". It was a bit surprising.

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.

"But today we switched on".

As he returned to the pits after his final Q3 attempt, Verstappen was congratulated over the radio by Red Bull boss Christian Horner, to which he replied: "I guess I still know how to drive!"

Speaking after Friday practice, Stevenage racer Hamilton said: "It's been a handsome day, the weather has been fantastic and the track feels better than ever".

"I think if I get a few more I'll head-butt someone", he said, only slowly allowing a faint grin.

"In terms of strategy, we did what we wanted to do", Vettel said.

Verstappen arrived in Montreal under attack from all corners, after an incident-filled start to the season in which the 20-year-old reach the podium once in six races, while Ricciardo has recorded a pair of wins.

"I was very happy with the last qualifying lap, very happy with my first lap".

"Yesterday we felt quite competitive and the vehicle was behaving quite well, so we were quite confident for today's qualifying, but we were not on the pace today unfortunately", Alonso said after qualifying in 14th place. "But looking at where we were, it doesn't make me satisfied, but I feel like we did all we could with what we had".

Romain Grosjean damaged his nose cone when he hit an animal, believed to be a groundhog in the afternoon. "Starting last is never ideal, but it's one of those racetracks where you can overtake, so luckily it's not Monaco".

With hometown hero Lance Stroll and rookie Sergey Sirotkin rooted to the bottom of the timesheets and high-profile team personnel being axed, it doesn't look like things will begin to improve any time soon for the once great team.
