The British driver has put himself into position to boost his title defense if he can continue the dominant driving he has shown in the past two days at the track just inland from the Cote d'Azur.

However, the handful of secondary roads that led to the track produced hours-long traffic jams for the tens of thousands eager to attend their first F1 race in France since 2008.

"I did push everything in the last attempt but pushed too much", said Vettel. "I was struggling a bit with front grip which didn't make it easy, but we still qualified in fourth", said Verstappen.

Hamilton, 33, now trails Ferrari driver Vettel by one point, and his team may wait until the opening practice session at the Paul Ricard Circuit on Friday before formally finalising their plans.

It is calling it a "Phase 2.1" engine, explaining that "we would have had a Phase 2 in Canada" and that its High Performance Powertrains division in Brixworth has been able to introduce "added goodness" in the delay.

Behind the top three teams, Sainz took seventh for Renault, Leclerc did well to take eighth for Sauber, Magnussen's Haas starts in ninth and Grosjean get tenth after bending his auto.

The crowds were sizable and committed - organisers claimed 100,000 walked down Pall Mall - but the demonstrations were not seismic.

There will be two more practices later on Friday and on Saturday before qualifying for Sunday's race. "I think it is a tricky track, not easy to get in a good ride start to finish".

While Hamilton thanked his team for its "great work" via the radio after crossing the finish line, Vettel regretted that he "had lost the race on the first lap".

Kimi Raikkonen (Ferrari), Brendon Hartley (Toro Rosso), Esteban Ocon (Force India) and Vandoorne all spun onto the blue-striped run-off areas at Turn Six but stopped before hitting the barrier.

The revamped Paul Ricard circuit at Le Castellet was a fixture on the F1 calendar until 1990 when four-time champion Alain Prost won the last race held there for Ferrari.

With drivers allowed only three engines a season before penalties are applied, Hamilton and Finnish team mate Valtteri Bottas were always going to get fresh ones having completed the lifespan of the ones they started the season with.

The return of the French GP is the first part of an unprecedented tripleheader of three races on consecutive weekends.
