Sebastian Vettel has with a new track record at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve the polepositie for the GP of Canada conquered. Stoffel Vandoorne qualified disappointing as fifteenth.
Already at the start of the qualification we got spectacular images. Upon leaving his garage, there was a huge white plume of smoke from the F1 car, Romain Grosjean. The Frenchman’s qualification was already on, even before they really started.
Later in Q1 we saw Marcus Ericsson up against a wall drive. The flames shot out of the car, and Ericsson was in the direction of the Red Bull Max Verstappen catapulted. The Swede shot right past the Dutchman.
At the end of the first part of the qualification, we saw both Ferrari’s at the top. Both mclaren’s managed, but only just in to advance to Q2. Alonso and Vandoorne reason, after all, the fourteenth and fifteenth time.
Also during Q2, we saw Alonso and Vandoorne in the fourteenth and fifteenth place, with Alonso just nine thousandths faster than our countryman.
Ricciardo and Verstappen were all the way at the top. Both Red Bulls did their fastest time, however, the ‘faster’ but less sustainable hypersoft. At Ferrari and Mercedes was qualified on the ‘slower’ and more sustainable, ultrasoft. Strategic differences, so for the race on Sunday.
During Q3, when the battle for the polepositie really starts to roll, it was Sebastian Vettel during his first run for the time being the fastest. The German was in his Ferrari less than 81 thousandths faster than Bottas in the Mercedes. Were times and Bottas gave a little more than three tenths. Hamilton made a small mistake and was provisionally fifth.
In the second run managed to pass Vettel in it for its time, still something to improve. Valtteri Bottas won the second place on the first weekend, while Max Verstappen is improved to third place and Lewis Hamilton behind him.
Ferrari, Mercedes and Red Bull confirm again that they are in Canada very well matched. It promises to be Sunday, a very exciting GP of Canada.
