Max Verstappen sets pace at Canadian Grand Prix

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

Verstappen, who started from the rear of the grid at the Monaco Grand Prix after a crash in final practice, offered the promise of something much better in Montreal, taking full advantage of an upgraded power unit to put down two polished performances on the 2.7 mile (4.34 km) sun-splashed Circuit Gilles Villeneuve.

A day earlier, Verstappen was so fed up with questions over his incident-filled season that he vowed to head butt the next person to ask him about his frequent crashes. But I think we are not too far away so just general it was a positive day. "Our vehicle works well, but whether that will be enough in Q3, I don't know". Compatriot Kimi Raikkonen was sixth for Ferrari.

Verstappen, who made a sensational teenage arrival in F1 with a victory on his debut with Red Bull at the 2016 Spanish Grand Prix, crashed in practice at the Monaco Grand Prix two weeks ago and had to start from the back of the grid.

Red Bull's Max Verstappen posted the fastest lap at the Formula One Canadian Grand Prix for the third practice session in a row. If I'm on the seventh race with a hard circuit on engines, I want to see it through.

There is a third practice session plus qualifying on Saturday, with the race on Sunday afternoon.

From the start, Verstappen nearly got the jump on Bottas, but the Finn held his line around the outside of Turn 1 to take the inside line into the next corner, keeping hold of second spot.

Instead the team switched back to his first MGU-K of the season, which failed during the Chinese Grand Prix weekend but was still useable and, crucially, can be used without a punishment.

"I felt the laps I did were worth more than sixth place, but in the end, they weren't".

Latifi ran 28 laps.

It's the first pole for Ferrari at the track named for one of its most celebrated drivers since Michael Schumacher in 2001. I'd say that they are the ones to beat at the moment. I wasn't really happy with the auto. "But we're going to get it later anyway, so that's all good".

In the morning session, Williams driver Sergey Sirotkin spun and hit a wall, but was able to continue.

"It's probably the first time in a while that we have gained really good team points so it's a good weekend from that perspective and also good for Max".

Fernando Alonso was impressive in seventh place for McLaren, just 0.598 seconds off the pace and on the same ultra-soft tyres as Mercedes were using. "It would be great to see Canada continue to expand in the sport".

Latifi was named reserve driver by Force India this season after serving in a similar role with Renault. A year later, he won the Spanish Grand Prix and became the youngest victor in F1 history. He hopes to finish in the top five to earn enough points for his F1 superlicence.
