Mr. Vettel set up a thrilling Sunday
For a short while in Q-3, it looked like Mr. Hamilton was going to spoil things as he sat in provisional Pole after the first attempts in the Top 10 shootout.
After the session, Mr. Vettel said: “He’s bloody good in qualifying, hard to crack! I’m full of adrenaline to be honest. You know the feeling in the car when it just keeps coming and then you feel the grip and you go for it. It was just one of those laps. Really nice, I really enjoyed it.”
“Very happy, very happy for the team because the last weeks, the last 17 races… no but the last weeks have been tough for us.”
Mr. Hamilton was after a 7th career pole in Canada but will start 2nd on the grid after crossing the line 0.206secs slower than the Ferrari.
Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc is 3rd on the grid, as MercedesAMG’s Valtteri Bottas had a disappointing final run of the day, ending qualifying 6th.
Ferrari has proved it has a fast car, and Mr. Vettel’s track record was a welcome moment, setting him up for chance of winning on Sunday.
