F1: Ferrari’s (NYSE:RACE) Sebastian Vettel on ‘The Pole’ at Canadian Grand Prix


Saturday afternoon in Montreal, Canada Ferrari’s (NYSE:RACE) Sebastian Vettel drove around the circuit fastest of all the racers to post his 54th F1 Pole position.

With that his main rival, MercedesAMG’s Lewis Hamilton learned that his 14-point championship lead could easily vanish, and Mr. Vettel will be back on Top Sunday afternoon.

In the race Sunday, the Top 6 drivers are separated by fewer than 4/10ths of a sec as Ferrari, MercedesAMG and Red Bull all ran for the Pole.

Mr. Hamilton seeking to match champion Michael Schumacher’s record of 7 poles in Montreal came 4th of the 6. As he was clearly out driven by Mr. Vettel in the Ferrari who ran the course with perfection on the long Montreal straights.

“I guess I woke up the right way,” said Mr. Vettel, who also thanked his mechanics for fixing his car after it sustained some damage during free practice.

“Today we switched on ‒ the car was incredible, it just kept getting quicker. On my last lap I had a small mistake, otherwise I think there was a bit more.”

Mr. Vettel was in Top form, “In every session we have made progress. In qualifying, the car grips up quite a lot, so you just have to follow the track. I’m very happy.”

Red Bull’s Max Verstappen finished Top of the time-sheets in every practice run, only to drop down to 3rd in a frantic, last-gasp effort.
