History awaits Hamilton in Montreal

Lewis Hamilton handed the advantage to rival Sebastian Vettel after a mistake on his final run left him only fourth on the grid for the Canadian Grand Prix.

Scorching the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve with the fastest times of the day will have that effect on a driver.

He dominated Friday's two sessions and made the most of his upgraded Renault engine to complete the hat-trick on Saturday with a lap of one minute 11.599 seconds around the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve.

The interview can be seen in Sky F1's build-up show from 5.30pm ahead of the race start from Montreal at 7.10pm where Vettel will be on pole ahead of Mercedes' Valtteri Bottas.

He has under half the points of teammate Daniel Ricciardo so far this year, and following the race in Monaco Red Bull team boss Christian Horner urged Verstappen to learn from his older teammate.

"In terms of strategy, we did what we wanted to do", Vettel said. After leading all three practice sessions, Max Verstappen will start third in his Red Bull, alongside Hamilton. I suddenly got a lot of understeer entering Turn Two, but I had no choice but to try to get out of it as quickly as I could, but obviously I was off the line and that screwed up my speed.

Hamilton will start from behind the front-row in Montreal for the first time in seven years.

"Hopefully we'll get a good feeling when we first take the HyperSofts for a spin in FP3 tomorrow [Saturday] and it's not too different to what we've been driving today". "The auto was working well".

Vettel won the first two races of the year but did not return to the podium until his second-place finish in Monaco last race.

"They'll be hard to beat", the Australian said. "I had the pace to be on the front row but just struggled in the session and wasn't able to pull it through".

Alonso has said he expected a "tough" weekend for McLaren, but reckoned a "little bit of drama" and some changing weather conditions would open a few opportunities.

After a miserable Friday blighted by setbacks, Renault was back on form on Saturday as Nico Hulkenberg produced an excellent lap to go sub-1m12 and lead the midfield runners in P7. "The auto was incredible in qually".

Romain Grosjean damaged his nose cone when he hit an animal, believed to be a groundhog in the afternoon.

There were also grim faces in the Williams pit as both Canadian Lance Stroll and Russian Sergey Sirotkin failed to make it out of the first qualifying session and will again start near the back of the grid. Canada offers him scant hope of a reprieve, with this track's long straights likely to leave Red Bull, whose cars are best in high-downforce conditions, struggling behind Mercedes and Ferrari.
