Vettel hails Ferrari 'team effort' 40 years after Villeneuve win

Sebastian Vettel wins Canadian Grand Prix for 50th career victory

Vettel covered the 2.71-mile (4.36-km) track in 1 minute, 10.764 seconds to deprive Lewis Hamilton of a record seventh pole in Montreal.

Vettel, from his fourth Canadian pole, made a clean start while behind him Bottas had to scrap to resist a robust attack from Verstappen.

It was left to Bottas to chase Vettel, who made a clean getaway from the start, with Verstappen nearly passing the Finn before the order settled down.

Red Bull's Max Verstappen, who could have become the youngest driver ever to take pole, dominated all three practice sessions but the 20-year-old could not keep pace with the Ferraris when it mattered most.

Ricciardo starts on the third row with the second Ferrari driven by Kimi Raikkonen.

Starting cleanly, Vettel was pulling away from the field when a crash between Brandon Hartley and hometown favourite Lance Stroll brought out the safety vehicle in the very first lap.

Hamilton's chief championship rival, Sebastian Vettel, finished fifth.

Especially when free agency is not even close to playing out and then considering what James said bout his family. Houston might be a piece or two away from defeating the Warriors, but that piece is not James.

Hamilton, fourth at the time, headed into the pit lane on lap 16 of this 70-lap race, but the early change of tyres allowed Ricciardo to usurp the Mercedes vehicle. Constantly going into that corner I was struggling to get the auto stopped, be it front locking, or rear locking.

Sebastian Vettel was pretty happy with his effort to take pole in Montreal - a lap record at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve. "You can't come to Montreal and think it's going to be a walk in the park because that's the kind of wake-up call you get".

Stevenage-born Hamilton had earlier cruised into Q2 after taking P3 behind the Ferraris in the first phase of qualifying. "I quickly saw that it was going to be hard to take pole position but you always do your best and try to get the best out of the vehicle". Bottas was first to blink on lap 37, Vettel following one lap later, both going to super-softs. He said: "It was a hard qualifying".

"I think his charisma, the character he brought to Formula One and racing in general, is still alive today". He also won it in 2011, 2012 and 2013. "I am very happy with this weekend so far".

Last year's victor in Monaco was Hamilton.

"It's also a race that rarely runs start to finish without a few incidents or safety cars, so there is plenty of opportunity likely to come our way if we can stay at the front and put some pressure on the cars around us".

He admitted: "We were coming to Montreal expecting our auto to be really strong and we are leaving Montreal seeing that we haven't been where we thought we should be".
