Canadian Grand Prix: Max Verstappen fastest in first practice

A win on Sunday would also see Hamilton draw level with F1 legend Michael Schumacher as the joint-most successful Canadian Grand Prix driver of all time on seven titles apiece.

Verstappen believes Red Bull have some pace in hand though with more to be found overnight ahead of qualifying. Verstappen says the deficit was bigger on high fuel in FP2, but is encouraged by the rest of Red Bull's performance so far.

Sebastian Vettel has claimed the pole position in the Formula One Canadian Grand Prix with the fastest lap ever on the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve.

"We struggled pretty much all weekend, we struggled for some rhythm, we had a few problems yesterday and even this morning we had a few problems in the first part of practice some other issues".

The Red Bull driver said at a news conference Thursday before the Canadian Grand Prix that he's exhausted of questions about the crash in Azerbaijan that also knocked out teammate Daniel Ricciardo, or the one in Monaco that sent him to the back of the grid. "I will never do that, because it's brought me to where I am so far". He sits sixth in the standings some 75 points behind leader Lewis Hamilton and with less than half the number of his Australian Red Bull team-mate Daniel Ricciardo. If I'm on the seventh race with a hard circuit on engines, I want to see it through.

Trump said it was snapped as they waited for changes he'd requested to the communique he ended up pulling out of. The Canadian market place, Lampron added, "is too small to make a dent in USA overproduction".

They were soon out to join the near-frenzied traffic, in which the Dutchman clocked a new record in 1:12.035, to go three-tenths clear of team-mate Ricciardo, who responded in record-breaking style.

The Dutchman also put his teammate Daniel Ricciardo in the shade by over a tenth-and-a-half as the Monaco race victor struggles to find the same pace around the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve.

Asked whether his Friday clean sweep meant pole position could be on the cards, Verstappen replied: "In terms of pole position, I think Mercedes will be very strong again". "Starting on the softer tyre is a benefit as it's quite slippery on track and in the race I think we'll be competitive". When you feel confident with the auto then you can do a good job. The main thing was to get through the program, which we did. "Every single weekend you go in you try to win and here practice has been good". "The vehicle was working well".

The good news for Ricciardo is that Red Bull thinks he can get through the weekend without needing to use a new energy recovery system. Team-mate Sainz put the back end of his vehicle into the wall early in the afternoon and managed just nine laps. "I'm happy for Canada that we participate in this sport".

"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".
