'The vehicle was incredible' - Vettel after stunning Canada pole

"I don't know, I haven't seen much of the times of the others so it's hard to read yet".

The young Dutchman clocked the best time of the day in the afternoon session, one minute, 12.198 seconds, ahead of Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen and Red Bull team mate and Monaco Grand Prix victor Daniel Ricciardo.

When asked after qualifying if he considered using the hypersoft to start the race, and if he was anxious about Red Bull's strategy, Vettel said: "No, no".

Sebastian Vettel boosted his hopes of closing the gap to Formula One championship leader Lewis Hamilton by claiming Ferrari's first pole at the Canadian Grand Prix since 2001.

"A little bit obviously frustrating not to get many laps, but the problem doesn't seem dramatic".

I think we need a little bit of time to understand the full picture but as I said I'm not yet happy with the auto.

"I think he's pretty headstrong; he won't let it get to him too much", said the Australian, who won in Monaco and now sits in third place, 38 points behind Hamilton, in the standings. Neither used the hypersofts, thanks to the desire to save all five sets for Saturday and Sunday, and Hamilton's time was actually set on the slowest tyre compound. His late lap was brilliant, and a reminder of what he can do on a good day - his radio sign off, "I guess I didn't forget how to drive", a polite reminder to his critics that he's determined to turn his season around.

She said: "I think [playing on clay] was still kind of a confusion in the head up until about a week ago (smiling)". She will face 10th-seeded Sloane Stephens , who had little trouble beating No. 14 Daria Kasatkina, 6-3, 6-1.

"Straightaway it wasn't flawless and you kind of expect it here".

"Even after Monaco we spoke quite a bit after the race, even Monday we spoke a little bit".

"We were briefly talking about what we wanted to do, trying to figure everything out". But in the race it calms down a bit. Maybe in the first half of the circuit a bit more.

Mercedes were forced to shelve their planned engine upgrade this weekend due to a "quality issue" and Bottas believes the new unit may have enabled him to pip Vettel to pole.

"I think so", he said with a laugh.

In the morning, Latifi ran 28 laps, with 1:17.145 his best. But I had some understeer on the second run, I don't know for what reason, but I don't think we missed any positions. "Like Ferrari we're starting the race with the ultrasoft tyres, so let's see what we can do with them".
