RACE: Vettel wins in Canada to seize championship lead

"The meaning of Ferrari in this country is huge, with the history", said Vettel, a four time F1 champion when he raced for Red Bull Renault.

Vettel set the pace throughout the Q3 top 10 shootout, posting a time of 1m10.776s on his first run to take top spot.

In the Thursday press conference, Verstappen faced a barrage of questions about his approach to racing and his temperament but on Friday, he did his real talking - delivering a faultless display on a track where Red Bull was not expected to contend.

The title race remains finely balanced but Ferrari will take great encouragement from victory at a circuit where Mercedes have been dominant, with Hamilton taking pole and winning for the last three years in Montreal.

Valtteri Bottas of Mercedes was second followed by the Red Bulls' Max Verstappen and Daniel Riciardo, the victor two weeks ago in Monaco.

Stroll, 19, was in is second Canadian GP. I think it showed in Monaco that we have a great auto and again here. Overtaking is relatively straightforward, speeds are high and the cars are pushed to their limits; likewise, the concrete walls punish any mistakes heavily but the drivers need the confidence to use all of the track, especially in qualifying where even the smallest of margins count.

The Finn added: "It's always annoying when it's so close and we're not ahead - but starting on the front row is good for this race".

Daniel Ricciardo was in P4 after keeping Hamilton off his tail.

A defiant Max Verstappen says he is so exhausted of ongoing questions about his crash-filled campaign that he is going to "headbutt" someone if he is probed on it for much longer. In the Constructors' Championship, Mercedes leads with 178 points, Ferrari is second with 156 points and Red Bull is third with 107 points.

Vettel sees another chance to honour the memory of Gilles Villeneuve, who died in a crash at the 1982 Belgian Grand Prix, with a Ferrari win.

"I think we have a really good auto". Every single lap I was kind of on the edge just waiting for the power to drop away and disappear.
