Hamilton is concerned that doing this race with an old engine that will have lost a small amount of power over its life could be enough to make it hard to contend for victory at a track where he has won six times in 10 races.
A series of accidents in the opening six races of the season have put pressure on the Red Bull driver going into this weekend's race, but Verstappen responded to his recent criticism on Friday by setting the fastest time by 0.130s. Verstappen says the deficit was bigger on high fuel in FP2, but is encouraged by the rest of Red Bull's performance so far.
Ricciardo secured his second win of the season in Monte Carlo and said his rich vein of form and the characteristics of the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve makes him keen to push any engine penalty back to the French Grand Prix.

"I think we have the pace to take the fight to Ferrari and Mercedes", Verstappen told reporters later. "Mercedes look very quick there, but I think we are not too far away so it was just, in general, a positive day". Obviously if something happens in practice then we will probably have to take one, but no is the answer today. I felt we were always one step back. I feel like we had one run here, one run there to kind of get it right.
"I think so", he said with a laugh.
Asked about his driving style after arriving in Montreal, he said, "I get really exhausted of all the questions". 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. "Now we just have to break it down and get it in the best position for (qualifying)".
