"However, comparing on the same tyres, we do look to be in better shape than we were in Monaco".

Max Verstappen set the pace for the second practice session in a row at the Canadian Grand Prix as the top three teams all looked competitive on Friday afternoon.

A day earlier, Verstappen was so fed up with questions over his incident-filled season that he vowed to head butt the next person to ask him about his frequent crashes.

"It's hard to judge our single lap pace from today as we haven't run the HyperSoft and some of our closest competition looked to have had less than flawless sessions".

"The auto balance has been good from the first run so it has just been a case of small balance tuning to keep the vehicle in the right window as the track grip came up".

Given that the hyper-soft is expected to be worth almost a second in performance over a flying lap, Lewis Hamilton's fourth fastest time - set on the super-soft compound and 0.579s off Verstappen - looks all the more competitive.

The proposed buy out by Alteri had postponed a plan to close 100 stores as part of a job saving restructure. Losses for the financial year 2016-17 were £17.1million, up from £5.4million the year before.

Vettel's team-mate Kimi Raikkonen was fifth, slipping down from third on the first runs after blowing his final lap with an error in running wide on the exit of Turn Two. Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel is second with 96 points and Red Bull Racing's Daniel Ricciardo is third with 72 points.

Red Bull chief engineer Paul Monaghan admitted the MGU-K from Monaco is unlikely to be re-usable.

Mercedes ace Lewis Hamilton, who was fourth at 1:12.777, has won the Canadian Grand Prix six times, including the last three, and needs one more win to equal Michael Schumacher for the race record. "Merc are going to be quick tomorrow - I would say they're the ones to beat at the moment".

While the strategy will give Hamilton and teammate Valtteri Bottas fewer laps to become accustomed to the the hyper-soft ahead of their qualifying laps, it gave the team more super-soft and ultra-soft tyres to test during Friday practice, which are expected to be the better race tyres.

Max Verstappen told reporters on Thursday that he would "head-butt" the next one to ask him about his crash-laden start to the 2018 Formula One season.

Latifi, the Force India reserve driver, ran only in the first of two 90-minute practice sessions before handing the pink vehicle back to regular driver Sergio Perez of Mexico. "Also myself didn't get the rhythm yet so missing a little bit of the laps but overall we tried to go through the programme as good as we could".
