"A situation like this for Vettel when he is coming up fast - in the end he still got pole, so no harm, no foul, which was good", he said. "I'm happy for them".
Mercedes' decision to choose the fewest number of hyper-soft tyres for this weekend out of all the teams may have contributed as neither driver had tried them until Saturday morning, but Hamilton can not blame only that as Bottas ended up on the front row.
The Ferraris set the pace, with Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen exchanging P1, and the Mercedes of Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas behind them, followed by the Red Bull pair of Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen. "It was a bit surprising, there was no way for me to carry on".
Verstappen added: "I'm very happy with this weekend".
Vettel, meanwhile, was forced to miss the start of FP2 after lengthy set-up changes were made to his vehicle, and he conceded that Ferrari have work to do ahead of qualifying.
Daniel Ricciardo, victorious in Monaco two weeks ago, was sixth in the second Red Bull as his team mate Verstappen, who had been fastest throughout practice, continued to deliver a ideal riposte to his critics.
Asked what he needed to do in Montreal to avert a repeat, where the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve's infamous "Wall of Champions" awaits the unwary, he replied: "Not hit the wall". Fortunately the forecast looks good this year, with only partly cloudy skies predicted for both Saturday's qualifying and Sunday's race.

Rafael Nadal's French Open set streak ends in quarterfinals
Coming into this part of the year, I was losing a few first-round matches, matches that I wanted to be winning, of course". Sharapova looked far from her best right from the start, double-faulting three times to get broken in the opening game.
On a dry and sunlit day, there was immediate drama when Romain Grosjean pulled up in the pit-lane with clouds of smoke billowing from his Haas car's Ferrari engine.
"I think they'll be at this stage hard to beat", he admitted, "but I think we can still improve the auto a lot, do more laps, learn a bit more and I think we'll be okay".
Hamilton was third in first qualifying, fifth in second qualifying and fourth after the first runs in the top 10 shoot-out.
The Q2 session began with both Ferrari and Mercedes on "ultra-soft" tyres before Red Bull, on "hypers" took top spot through Verstappen.
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.
Mercedes were first out in Q3 and smashed the records, Bottas topping Hamilton in 1:10.857 before Vettel beat that.
