'If I get a few more I'll head-butt someone' - F1 driver snaps over line of questioning

Romain Grosjean's Haas smoked heavily as it left the garage and the team was unable to get the vehicle back out which meant the Frenchman was immediately out of qualifying and will have to start from the back of the grid barring any other penalties elsewhere. "For now we've still got enough parts to run".

"Yesterday was really hard but being on pole here with Ferrari means something extra". "I wasn't happy with the vehicle - we had some problems, and I just couldn't get the rhythm".

But Ricciardo points to the fact that neither Mercedes driver used Pirelli's faster hypersoft tyre, the team electing to run on the harder compound instead because it has selected fewer sets of the pink-rimmed rubber than its rivals for the Canadian Grand Prix weekend.

Vettel, who is 14 points behind Hamilton in the championship and has a great chance to make up a serious amount of ground, said: "Yesterday we were a bit in trouble and I just couldn't get the rhythm, but today it switched on and what a day".

The semi-permanent track combines long straights with tight chicanes and each team sets up their vehicle to maximize straight line speed, although the cars also need to deliver a good ride over the relatively tall curbs.

"We extracted the best we could out of qualifying. We are always a bit more competitive in the race".

Red Bull's Max Verstappen snapped after he was repeatedly asked about the crashes he has been involved in recently.

"It was a bit different, it was a bit mixed today so I'm not entirely happy with the feel inside the auto yet. Like Ferrari we're starting the race with the ultrasoft tyres, so let's see what we can do with them".
