"No, it's never easy", said the four-time champion.

"Some of the marshals were already celebrating", he said.

Asked after the race if he felt any consolation in seeing Hamilton's team-mate Finn Valtteri Bottas come home second, Wolff said: "No, not at all..."

Max Verstappen, who was quickest in all three pre-qualifying practice sessions, placed third and will start in the second row next to Hamilton, whose run of three straight Canadian poles ended.

Fans witnessed history during Saturday afternoon qualifying, as Sebastian Vettel posted an outright track record lap time of one minute, 10.776 seconds to claim the pole position.

Hamilton, who was fifth on Sunday, fell from the top of the Formula One standings and now trails Vettel by one point, 121-120. "We're still going at full pace".

And Vettel said the emotion of his win meant more to him than taking the lead of the world championship ahead of Lewis Hamilton. "I'm just so happy that I finished".

Hamilton's Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas tailed Vettel the entire way after fighting off Red Bull Racing's Max Verstappen off the start, but Bottas never got almost close enough to mount a challenge, though he did come home a solid second.

Hamilton is looking to equal Schumacher's record of seven career Canadian GP wins.

"First of all, we could not use our new engine, which is a part of it", he said. I think we do our job inside the vehicle and if we can race, we race but obviously, we also do our job inside the auto and try to avoid racing. Some things that we tried and some things that I think we need to work on. Formula 1 next heads to the Circuit Paul Ricard in two weeks for the return of the French Grand Prix on June 24. Both cars were badly damaged but the drivers escaped uninjured.

The only other incident was a major first-lap collision between Williams' Lance Stroll and Toro Rosso's Brendon Hartley, with the pair coming together through Turn 6, the contact sending Hartley's STR13 riding the crash barriers. "If that comes together I think we can do quite a big jump and then hopefully the engine and putting it all together will help us to be there tomorrow".

It was also a short day for Stroll, a Montreal native who locked up with Hartley heading into Turn 5 on the first lap.

Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo, the 2014 Canadian GP victor, is coming off a victory two weeks ago in Monaco.

Fernando Alonso's F1 future remains unclear after he retired from his 300th Grand Prix before making his Le Mans debut this week.

And during the race, Hamilton was affected by an engine-cooling problem that required an early pit-stop.

China Has No Evidence of Alleged Illness of US Diplomats
The Canadian government followed suit in April and directed the families of diplomatic staff in Cuba to return home. Recall that from China sent several American diplomats and their family members to undergo medical examinations.
