Vettel takes pole position at Canadian Grand Prix Qualifying

Vettel takes pole position at Canadian Grand Prix Qualifying

Championship leader and defending champion Lewis Hamilton was down in fourth for Mercedes - his hopes of a fourth consecutive pole in Canada ended - ahead of Kimi Raikkonen in the second Ferrari. But dig deeper and it's clear that, actually, Hamilton and Mercedes are shaping up strongly for this weekend. "But it showed in Monaco that we have a great vehicle".

The Canadian Grand Prix top three in qualifying: Valteri Bottas (2nd), Sebastian Vettel (1st) and Max Verstappen (3rd).

"There's a massive bumps into Turn 10".

"Even after Monaco we spoke quite a bit after the race, even Monday we spoke a little bit".

"I got the job done", he said. "I will never do that, because it's brought me to where I am so far".

"I think they'll be at this stage hard to beat, 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".

Mercedes asked for so few hyper-softs because they believe it will be a poor race tyre but Red Bull proved at the last race in Monaco that they can run it longer and more competitively than other teams and Verstappen is confident he can challenge the Ferraris and Mercedes in the race. Neither used the hypersofts, thanks to the desire to save all five sets for Saturday and Sunday, and Hamilton's time was actually set on the slowest tyre compound.

What to do if you suspect someone is suicidal
Suicide is very often an impulsive act, and a person who contemplates it can readily survive if no lethal weapon is at hand. It is now the 10-leading cause of death in the US , and is one of only three leading causes of death that are on the rise.

Wilbur Ross says Trump administration has reached "definitive agreement" with ZTE
This compromise would allow the company to once again use USA -made components in their products-although at a large cost. At the weekend, the company is believed to have agreed to the plan although a "settlement" document has yet to be signed.

Amazon confirms purchase of Premier League rights package
Though Amazon may have gotten a discount , its Premier League price tag would still likely hit nine figures in US dollars. The deal is an important milestone for Amazon, but it represents only a fraction of the larger Premier League pie.

"From our testing we had in Abu Dhabi [last December] particularly, that's what led us to the decisions we made and we stick with those".

Late in making his qualifying sims, the Australian was hampered by traffic but eventually managed to post a best time just 0.405s off his teammate's pace and good enough for third.

The Dutchman, who has had a hard start to the season with a series of crashes and errors, said: "I am really happy with this weekend so far". I just do my own thing. "If I get any more I might headbutt someone", Verstappen told reporters.

Bottas added: "It's always annoying when it's so close and we're not ahead but starting on the front row is good for this race".

However, Wolff said: "The fact is this is a championship that is going to be won and lost with the tiniest of margins".

Not a great weekend for him after smacking into a groundhog on the track yesterday. Obviously if something happens in practice then we will probably have to take one, but no is the answer today. It didn't make any difference to him ultimately, mind, going through P4.
