Sebastian Vettel takes pole position for Sunday's Canadian Grand Prix

'If I get a few more I'll head-butt someone' - F1 driver snaps over line of questioning If I get any more questions on my crashes I will head-butt someone, says Max Verstappen

With an upgraded Renault power unit, Max and his RB14 racer have consistently outpaced Ferrari and Mercedes with both Sebastian Vettel and Lewis Hamilton contesting him for the top spot.

Mercedes were first out in Q3 and smashed the records, Bottas topping Hamilton in 1:10.857 before Vettel beat that.

Hamilton was unusually out of sorts on a track where he has excelled so many times and a series of mistakes left him struggling to keep up with his rivals.

The No.3 vehicle was expected to take a penalty ahead of the weekend as a outcome of the engine issue which almost robbed Ricciardo of victory in Monaco.

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.

"There are massive bumps into Turn 10".

"I don't think the Hypersoft is a good race tyre", the four-time world champion stated to Autosport.

"With the long straights it's hard to fight for pole position".

It was the fifth time in seven races that both Williams cars failed to advance out of the first phase.

Doria Ragland was close to tears as she watched her daughter Meghan Markle walk down the aisle to marry Prince Harry in May. Meghan's premiere week continues on Jun. 14, when she and the Queen will travel to Cheshire for a series of royal events.

In the Thursday press conference, Verstappen faced a barrage of questions about his approach to racing and his temperament but on Friday, he did his real talking - delivering a faultless display on a track where Red Bull was not expected to contend. If the softest compound doesn't hang on, though, then Lewis Hamilton and Kimi Raikkonen are waiting to pounce.

Bottas said: "It was a good day here in Montreal even though it may not look that strong on the time sheets for us".

"The balance of the vehicle was really good from the start today, so we only had to do some fine tuning".

"But it was a combination of things".

"I think we got our stuff together.it felt like the laps were worth more than a sixth place but in the end they weren't.I really felt I did not a bad job". "I had the pace to be on the front row but just struggled in the session and wasn't able to pull it through".

"I think I was a bit in trouble after Friday practice, but I guess I woke up the right way today". "I just couldn't get the rhythm", he said.

Montreal has been kind to the British driver, who claimed his maiden F1 win at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in 2007.

"To compensate for this lack of low-speed grip we have to carry more wing which means more drag. So it is a combination of that and the fact that he has just been driving really well".

Red Bull would have spent the weekend evaluating the upgrades from engine suppliers Renault and Honda with an eye to perhaps swapping to the latter next season. The same applies for our competitors.
