Pole Sitter Vettel Says ‘I could have been even faster’ in Qualifying

Pole Sitter Vettel Says ‘I could have been even faster’ in Qualifying

The team took some time to find its pace over the weekend with Vettel not fully at ease with the vehicle until qualifying when he found the set-up he wanted to deliver an impressive pole, from which he dictated the race and converted into an equally impressive win.

It was the 300th F1 race for two-time champion Fernando Alonso of McLaren, good for fourth all-time.

Hamilton tops the championship leaderboard as he pursues his fifth Formula One title. Max Verstappen was third and the other Red Bull auto, driven by Daniel Ricciardo, was fourth.

"Perfect is probably a good way to describe it", said an ecstatic Vettel after the race.

Raikkonen had been a contender for the leading positions throughout the session at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, and occupied third spot after the first runs, while Ferrari team-mate Sebastian Vettel held provisional pole.

"I think I was a bit in trouble after Friday practice, but I guess I woke up the right way today".

The statement noted Johnson was known as a mentor to other inmates, and cited recommendations for clemency from prison officials. Johnson was released from prison hours after news of Trump's pardon came.

Hamilton's bid for a record-equalling seventh victory in Montreal was compromised from the start of the race with his engine suffering from cooling problems.

Vettel wasn't happy about the number of cars on track unaware of the drivers approaching them on a flying lap.

Driver of the race: Sebastian Vettel looked completely in control from the moment the lights went out, but we're going to give this to a man who may one day be his teammate - Charles Lecerc scored another point for Sauber, managing a significant brake issue in the closing stages at one of the toughest circuits for braking on the calendar.

He then shaved 0.012 seconds off that time on his second run using the hypersoft Pirellis to make sure of pole position. "In the race, it all calms down a bit so that's why I think we're always a bit more competitive in the race".

It is his third win this season, and a strong riposte after Ferrari failed to perform at their best in Spain and were beaten by Red Bull in Monaco. We're trying to compensate for that. On a track like this when you have to attack kerbs so much it's important you feel at home and have confidence to play around and I think then you can extract a bit more from the auto. Vettel said. "I brushed the wall and lost some time getting ready for the second session".
