Ferraris (Vettel, Raikkonen) fastest in Canadian GP practice

Ferraris (Vettel, Raikkonen) fastest in Canadian GP practice

Vettel holds a 129-104 lead over Hamilton in the standings as Mercedes and Ferrari have dueled in one of the most competitive seasons in recent memory. "So to match him, and to receive this, is the greatest honor".

"I remember coming home from school and putting on video tape of Ayrton so it is really odd to think that now I'm here and I have that many poles". Honestly I can't believe it. For me, on the second run in Q3 I tried to go faster, I went too deep into the hairpin so I could have got a bit more out of it. "Being that it is the most hard season of my career, racing against great drivers and having us so close, really pushes us all to the limit and relies on us all being flawless and of course we can't always be ideal but, for today, I got as close as I could get". The race starts at 7pm on Sunday. He said that small errors cost him a shot at pole.

"That's what kids notice, the yellow helmet", Hamilton said.

"Nevertheless I feel the auto is very good, I was really happy this morning, I was happy this afternoon and it should be very good in the race so I'm looking forward to tomorrow".

Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton, of Great Britain, takes a turn at the Senna corner during the first practice session at the F1 Canadian Grand Prix auto race, Friday, June 9, 2017, in Montreal. Hamilton did eventually set the fastest time, only to be usurped by seven thousandths of a second by Bottas.

"I always said that it's not that situation in the team", said Arrivabene. "Lewis had a mega lap today".

Despite Verstappen's impressive pace, Red Bull will remain cautious as Ferrari and Mercedes tend to make a step forward in power unit performance during qualifying, while Daniel Ricciardo is also on the back foot after power unit issues on Friday and ended FP3 in eighth place, almost a second off the pace.

The 18-year-old rookie, whose progression through the motorsport ranks has been bankrolled by his fashion billionaire father Lawrence Stroll, has struggled for speed and he will start a lowly and disappointing 17th tomorrow after falling at the first hurdle of qualifying.

To mark his success in equalling Senna's record - leaving only Schumacher's record 68 poles to beat - Hamilton was presented with one of Senna's helmets after the session, on behalf of the Senna family.
