Verstappen posts quickest lap for third straight practice at Canadian GP

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

"We are not there yet and we need a little more time to get it all together, but I expect we will be there tomorrow (Saturday for qualifying)".

"I was pretty surprised as well", he said of the incident.

Bottas in P2 will need a ideal start tomorrow to challenge the Ferrari in front of him.

F1's stricter engine rules for 2018 have limited the components each driver can use per season and Ricciardo's issue in Monaco, plus a problem with the same engine part during a practice session ahead of the Chinese Grand Prix, had left Red Bull fearing he would have to move on to a third MGU-K in Montreal - an automatic 10-place grid penalty. Vettel's best lap time of one minute 10.776 seconds bested the record of 1:11.459 set past year by Mercedes ace Lewis Hamilton.

"I think I was a bit in trouble after Friday practice, but I guess I woke up the right way today". He sits sixth in the standings some 75 points behind leader Lewis Hamilton and with less than half the number of his Australian Red Bull team-mate Daniel Ricciardo.

Vettel, meanwhile, was forced to miss the start of FP2 after lengthy set-up changes were made to his vehicle, and he conceded that Ferrari have work to do ahead of qualifying.

"It was great to carry the momentum we've had this year into qualifying", said Vettel, who took pole position for the fourth time in seven races this season. "In the race, it all calms down a bit so that's why I think we're always a bit more competitive in the race".

Before qualifying began, Pierre Gasly was forced to resort to the old-spec Honda power unit prior to the start of the qualifying session.

"We're happy that we qualified on the ultrasoft tyre in Q2", said Bottas.

Hamilton leads Vettel by 14 points in the championship heading into the weekend, with Ricciardo third, 38 points off the lead.

One factor that could count in Mercedes' favour on Sunday is that like Ferrari - but unlike Red Bull - they made it through Q2 on the more durable ultrasoft tyre, meaning they will start the race on that compound.

The Dutch driver has endured a hard start to the season after being involved in incidents at every race so far in the 2018 season.

Having clocked banker laps, they switched to "hyper-softs" on which Vettel was slowed by heavy traffic as Ricciardo topped Verstappen with a new track record lap of 1:11.434.

And then a quick new track record for Vettel, knocking spots off the Mercedes with 1:10.776.
