If I get any more questions on my crashes I will head-butt someone, says Max Verstappen

'If I get a few more I'll head-butt someone' - F1 driver snaps over line of questioning

Hamilton is concerned that doing this race with an old engine that will have lost a small amount of power over its life could be enough to make it hard to contend for victory at a track where he has won six times in 10 races.

It was at the 2007 Canadian Grand Prix that Hamilton won his first Formula One race, and he's since gone on to emerge victorious in five of the last eight trips to the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Montreal.

"We did not have the smoothest day".

Sebastian Vettel will start the race from the front of the grid, followed by Mercedes' Valtteri Bottas and Verstappen. The Monaco Grand Prix victor set the fastest first sector of the session before a lock-up at the tight hairpin at the start of sector three cost him significant time on what proved to be his personal best lap. "I will never do that, because it's brought me to where I am so far". It is a blow for Ricciardo's title chances after he moved up to third, and within 38 points of Hamilton following his Monaco triumph.

Hamilton will take some stopping considering he's finished outside the podium places in only one of the six races so far this season.

Ricciardo's vehicle has spent more time in the garage than Verstappen's this weekend, but Ricciardo does not think he can use too much of that as an excuse for the gap to the Dutchman.

Again, Kimi Raikkonen led the Ferrari charge in second place, but Monaco victor Daniel Ricciardo, who missed a large chunk of FP2 as mechanics rushed to fix a mechanical problem, was able to end the day third.

"It's all very close; disappointing to be at the tail end of that top pack but actually I don't think we could have done more." .

Asked why he had experienced so many crashes, he paused before he said: "I don't know".

"I think my weekend has lacked a little bit of rhythm and we've been one step behind due to some of the issues on Friday", said Ricciardo.

"The others did a bit better but I'm not really bitter or anything at myself, I honestly did the best I could today". And just giving us an extra start performance on the hypersoft for us felt like a risk worth taking.

Ricciardo added that Red Bull's plan is to one-stop, but that relies on both drivers managing to make the hypersoft last long enough. "But we're going to get it later anyway, so that's all good". We got a few laps at the end there so I did enough to feel what the auto was like.

"It's probably the first time in a while that we have gained really good team points so it's a good weekend from that perspective and also good for Max".
