Vettel leads a mixed grid in Canada

Sebastian Vettel has secured pole position ahead of his championship in a fairly shaken up grid at Montreal.

The German out qualified the Mercedes of Bottas by just under a tenth of a second, with Verstappen close behind.

Hamilton, who was expected to do well here ‘only’ managed fourth, ahead of Raikkonen, who lost front end grip early into his final run and missed the chance to improve.

Ricciardo was the last car of the front runners in seventh, though he is expected to gain in the race.

Hulkenberg, Ocon, Sainz, and Perez round out the top ten.

The other Renault powered cars are the McLarens, who only managed 14th (Alonso) and 15th (Vandoorne), which is disappointing given the upgrades they have received.

The highlight of the day was Brendon Hartley out qualifying his teammate and securing 12th, with Gasly 16th. Hartley took 8th in Q2, which should silence his critics for a while!

Unsurprising, both Williams’ failed to get into Q2.

Finally, Grosjean was unable to qualify due to an engine failure.
