Canadian GP: Vettel grabs pole position, Grosjean's hopes go up in smoke
Sebastian Vettel wins Canadian Grand Prix for 50th career victory
10 June, 2018, 23:08
That's if Canadiens fans still remember what that sounds like.
Vettel's best lap time of one minute 10.776 seconds bested the record of 1:11.459 set previous year by Mercedes ace Lewis Hamilton. It's unlikely to be enough to make up a position on its own, but combine it with some aggressive driving through the opening corners and Max Verstappen is in a strong position to attack Valtteri Bottas and Sebastian Vettel further round the opening lap.
Sebastian Vettel was pretty happy with his effort to take pole in Montreal - a lap record at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve. Vettel won the Canadian Grand Prix in 2013 when he was with Red Bull.
But it was a decision Red Bull made earlier in the session, in Q2, to complete their best lap on the Hypersoft tyre and not the more durable Ultrasoft, which Ferrari and Mercedes had on their cars, which confused Vettel as it means both Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo will use that compound in the first stint. You can see there's a lot of flags. He left a heritage, so I think the people who fell in love with motorsport back then are still there, and their kids and grandchildren. "Yeah, so really, really happy and it's an important day for us but, for sure, Saturday is not as important as Sunday so we hope to do well tomorrow as well".
A clearly disappointed Hamilton admitted that he had his work cut out for him overnight if he was to find the sort of pace that usually makes him unbeatable around the Circuit Gille Villeneuve. In the Constructors' Championship, Mercedes leads with 178 points, Ferrari is second with 156 points and Red Bull is third with 107 points. "[But] I think it could be tricky to overtake tomorrow. In general, I like coming here". The Scuderia Ferrari Club of Montreal was the first fan club in North America sanctioned by Ferrari headquarters in Maranello.
"The auto was incredible in qualifying and it just kept getting quicker", said Vettel, whose Ferrari team were using new engines. You use a lot of curbs, so the auto is jumping up and down.
Lap 19: Vettel is told by his Ferrari team that he is switching to "plan B". Vettel comes up with a new name for his vehicle each year. Yesterday we were a bit in trouble. But it's very challenging mentally. "It will be very close again".
Hamilton started fourth but dropped back to finish fifth and is a point behind Vettel at the one-third point of the season.
Before that, he collided with Hamilton in Bahrain and retired while he had a 360-degree spin in Australia and finished sixth after starting fourth.
"We had ups, but we also had some downs", he said. "It's a great result for all the team, but I think I could have been even faster". You've got the top three teams very close to each other and it's hard to predict on Sunday what's going to happen.
The No.3 vehicle was expected to take a penalty ahead of the weekend as a effect of the engine issue which almost robbed Ricciardo of victory in Monaco.
