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.

"On Friday the vehicle balance was great into [Turn] 10".

"There are massive bumps into Turn 10".

"We have to select it quite far ahead from our test when the tyres didn't last, that's the information we got there".

"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".

"Well, it was a long time ago", Vettel said about Schumacher taking the pole position.

Hamilton will start from behind the front-row in Montreal for the first time in seven years. Mercedes, Ferrari and Red Bull have dominated the field this season.

The Ferrari and Mercedes drivers will start the race on the ultrasoft Pirellis, having used that compound to set their fastest times in Q2, with Red Bull and the rest of the top 10 using hypersofts.

"For this weekend, we have a new power unit so there's a lot of preparation that's been going into this race from the team side", Vettel said.

Lewis Hamilton slipped up in qualifying.

Lewis Hamilton said he enjoyed a "beautiful day" of opening practice at the Canadian GP but now waits to learn how Mercedes' extensive work to improve their fortunes on F1's fastest tyre plays into their bid to win this weekend.

"From the testing we had in Abu Dhabi particularly, that's what led us to the decisions we made, and we stick with those".

"We had a few problems".

"But it was a combination of things".

"Yesterday we felt quite competitive and the auto was behaving quite well, so we were quite confident for today's qualifying, but we were not on the pace today unfortunately", Alonso said after qualifying in 14th place. I was just a bit off, but that was it. "You can't get them all and I'll try to recover from it tomorrow". It would be much more of a problem if I would be really slow, because that is a critical problem.' When pushed further to explain why he had crashed so much this year, Verstappen replied: 'Like I said I get a bit exhausted of all the questions.

"We need to understand more about everything today but let's see what we can do tomorrow".

However, Wolff said: "The fact is this is a championship that is going to be won and lost with the tiniest of margins". "We did pretty well considering.the weekend we lacked some rhythm".

"It's very hard. We have a great vehicle but our whole package is not the best on every single track and we just have to accept that".

Red Bull would have spent the weekend evaluating the upgrades from engine suppliers Renault and Honda with an eye to perhaps swapping to the latter next season.
