Lewis Hamilton's quest for a record-tying seventh Canadian Grand Prix victory will be tougher than he wanted.

Pirelli's use of the hyper-soft tires will definitely be a talking point, as even at the Circuit de Monaco, the least power-needy circuit in F1, teams were hesitant to use the Pink-striped tire.

"There's some tricks to the track, but it's a great track, there's a lot of over taking possibilities, so it is a good show."

Mercedes' decision will also affects Force India and Williams, who will have to stick with the engines that they have been using since the start of the season.

"Naturally I am still here to win but as I said if they've got upgrades on their engines which can be a tenth to two tenths - Ferrari are particularly very strong on the straights, it will be interesting to see whether we're able to match them or not".

The Silver Arrows now lead both the drivers and constructors championships after six races. "There's 21 circuits and it's impossible to be ideal on every single one". I can't tell you why it is always the case.

"There are certain circuits that will suit you more than another place and this has been one of those circuits for me".

"I've never driven the circuit in Montreal so I'm looking forward to driving there", said the Russian.

Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel, of Germany, spins during a turn at the Senna corner during the first practice session at the Canadian Grand Prix in Montreal, Friday, June 9, 2017.

It will be a big weekend at the track, which is celebrating the 40th anniversary of the event's move to the island circuit across from downtown Montreal. Moreover, championship leader Lewis Hamilton rates the Montreal track as one of his favorites having won the race on six occasions in the past.

It will also be the 300th career F1 race for Spanish star Fernando Alonso, the two-time world champion now driving for McLaren.

"It is of course Lance's home race, and also where he scored his first Formula 1 points a year ago in his rookie season, so it holds good memories".

"We still have work to do", Vettel said. "Those are the points we have now and we have to deal with it as a team".

"I can't wait to get to Canada as it is my favourite race of the year", commented Stroll, who was himself born in Montreal. It's a long year.
