Ferrari ridiculed after posting image of 'Montreal' showing Toronto skyline

Hamilton took pole again for the race in 2017, and he experienced a casual Sunday drive en route to winning, as he led all 70 laps and won by almost 20 seconds over his teammate, Valtteri Bottas.

The circuit is particularly tough on brakes, with cars slowing from 320kph to 150 in just 1.6 seconds into the "Wall of Champions" chicane.

What then do you need to succeed?

Hamilton said he was bewildered to find himself behind as Vettel emerged from the pits to hold on to the lead around the notoriously-restrictive Albert Park street circuit.

"I quite like the section between Turns 4 to 7".

Mercedes one minute 11.459 seconds.

Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen was 0.13 seconds slower, followed by Verstappen's Red Bull teammate and Monaco victor Daniel Ricciardo.

Force India pair Sergio Perez and Esteban Ocon fiercely scrapped over fifth - marking the start of their sequence of mid-season clashes - while home hero Lance Stroll scored his maiden points in ninth for Williams.

Lewis Hamilton returns to his happiest stomping ground this weekend when he seeks to extend his world championship lead with a record-equalling seventh triumph at the Canadian Grand Prix.

Hamilton's supremacy at the event means there have been slim pickings for his contemporaries.

The Canadian Grand Prix weekend hasn't even begun but already Lewis Hamilton knows he faces a hard task to stop Sebastian Vettel claiming victory this Sunday.

The Brit is a six-time victor on this circuit and is looking for a fourth consecutive triumph on Circuit Gilles Villeneuve to draw level with F1 and Ferrari legend Michael Schumacher as a seven-time victor in North America.

Since then Hamilton has added five more wins including a hat-trick of Mercedes triumphs in 2015, 2016 and 2017 to move within reach of becoming the first man to secure four straight pole positions - he converted pole in each of those years - and four consecutive wins.

Montreal wasn't kind to Mercedes in 2014 with Hamilton encountering brake issues that forced him to retire after 46 laps. Former champions McLaren and Williams have not won since 2012.

Either the Ultrasoft or Supersoft tyres must be run for one stint of the 70-lap Grand Prix, should dry conditions prevail.

Five-times Le Mans victor Emanuele Pirro will act as the Driver Steward.
