Lewis Hamilton: Mercedes star admits MAJOR Canadian Grand Prix concern

He dominated Friday's two sessions and made the most of his upgraded Renault engine to complete the hat-trick on Saturday with a lap of one minute 11.599 seconds around the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve. No Ferrari has been on the pole position at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve since 2001 when Schumacher finished first in qualifying.

"I got the job done. If we can escape this weekend without it, I'd rather take it somewhere else".

"I'm a bit surprised that both of the Red Bulls chose that, but I guess they have their reasons".

"The auto was incredible in qualifying - it just kept getting quicker. But it was fantastic".

Sebastian Vettel and his Ferrari team-mate Kimi Raikkonen were subdued after finishing fifth and second respectively at the end of Friday's practice for the Formula One Canadian Grand Prix.

The Dutchman's litany of misjudgments means that with less than a third of the season gone, he already trails championship leader Lewis Hamiton by 75 points. "I said earlier that the meaning for Scuderia Ferrari in this country is huge with the history".

"The balance of the auto was really good from the start today, so we only had to do some fine tuning". I don't know if we're faster yet than we've ever been, but I've really enjoyed it. I was just a bit off, but that was it. "The laps weren't great laps", said the Mercedes driver, like Vettel a four times champion.

Vettel won the first two races of the year but did not return to the podium until his second-place finish in Monaco last race.

"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". Sebastian simply did a better job when it counted in Q3.

Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen was 0.13 seconds slower, followed by Verstappen's Red Bull teammate and Monaco victor Daniel Ricciardo. "It has brought me to where I am right now and after the race is not the right time to talk".

"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.

It was another disappointing day for the US -owned Haas team, as Romain Grosjean failed to make it beyond the pitlane before the engine in the Frenchman's vehicle blew in a cloud of smoke.

"I think I am hitting the bad luck for the next season and the one after and maybe even 2021", said Grosjean.

The Oxfordshire team have scored the fewest points of all this year, and Canadian teenager Lance Stroll and Sergey Sirotkin could manage only 17th and 18th respectively.
