Verstappen answers critics by topping Montreal practice

Daniel Ricciardo

Ricciardo suspects Hamilton would have been capable of a quicker time than Verstappen.

In the Constructors' Championship, Mercedes leads with 178 points, Ferrari is second with 156 points and Red Bull is third with 107 points.

The Red Bull driver has been under growing pressure this season following a number of key incidents, even suggesting he might "headbutt someone" on Thursday in response to ongoing questions about his performance.

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 didn't have the smoothest day and we had what looks like an electrical problem with the engine".

He retired in Azerbaijan after a collision with Ricciardo and in China he tangled with Hamilton and Vettel, finishing fifth after a 10-second penalty demoted him from fourth, while Ricciardo won the race.

Max Verstappen rounded out a solid weekend in Montreal with a third place finish at the Canadian Grand Prix. He closed in on Bottas towards the end as the Mercedes man let off, while Ricciardo gapped Hamilton behind with a series of strong laps while the reigning world champion nursed an engine issue. "But as I said at the start, I am exhausted of these questions and if I get any more I am going to head-butt someone". "If we can escape this weekend without it, I'd rather take it somewhere else".

Kiwi driver Brendon Hartley, whose F1 future is up in the air after it emerged the Toro Rosso team made a bid for McLaren protege Lando Norris, was 12th and 1.691s off the pace in the second practice.

"It's all very close; disappointing to be at the tail end of that top pack but actually I don't think we could have done more." . The tyres were holding on really well at the end when I was challenging Valtteri because he was fuel saving which shows our auto was working well and for sure we have a very competitive vehicle at the moment.

Renault introduced a new engine for all six cars in Canada, but Monaco GP victor Ricciardo trailed teammate Verstappen throughout practice, qualifying and the race. "But looking at where we were, it doesn't make me satisfied, but I feel like we did all we could with what we had".

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. "But we're going to get it later anyway, so that's all good".

"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".

"We managed to get a few laps in at the end of FP3 and I did enough to feel what the auto was like".

"It was a special feeling pulling out of pit lane - I had a big smile on my face", said Latifi.
