Vettel takes 50th win and F1 championship lead in Canada

5 things we learned from the Canadian Grand Prix Ferrari F1 ace Sebastian Vettel on pole with record lap at Canadian Grand Prix

"I could have lost a lot more points today".

"It's like when a race is stopped and can't be restarted, you take it back prior to the lap where the red flag was given". He left a heritage, so I think the people who fell in love with motorsport back then are still there, and their kids and grandchildren.

"We think it's a good tyre for us, and in the long run [in practice] I felt good on it", he explained.

Before the race on Sunday, the auto Villeneuve used in 1978 will be driven by his 47-year-old son Jacques, the 1997 world champion, to lead the ceremonial parade lap.

Vettel's maximum haul moved him a solitary point clear of his rival in the championship, coming home ahead of Valtteri Bottas and Max Verstappen as the top three finished as they had started.

His engine was six races old but Hamilton would have expected better.

Hamilton is looking to equal Schumacher's record of seven career Canadian GP wins. The Briton has won the last three on the track that seems to suit the Mercedes vehicle with its heavy braking after long straightaways and tight chicanes.

But Bottas and Hamilton may have been set back by the team's inability to get an updated engine ready in time for the race, while Ferrari and Red Bull both had new parts.

"I think we can do a great job in this race, it is great to start from third".

Hamilton tops the championship leaderboard as he pursues his fifth Formula One title.

Verstappen's podium was his second of the year, and it eases some of the pressure he has felt with a series of mistakes that cost him and the Red Bull team in Azerbaijan and Monaco.

Australian Daniel Ricciardo was fourth for Red Bull, and denied the fastest lap by the early flag waving which meant that did not count.

"It was just a very hard session", he said.

"Yesterday the vehicle balance was great into Turn Ten", he continued, "and usually the last sector is my strongest at this track, but I was just struggling with massive bumps into Turn Ten".

"I need to look into it to see exactly what it is, but there was a good chunk of time there, definitely in that corner alone there was pole position for sure if I'd figured out how to fix it".

The Finn said: "That was close, very close".

Kimi Raikkonen in the other Ferrari and Monaco victor Daniel Ricciardo are in the third row.

"Like every Grand Prix, there's no one person to dedicate it to", said Vettel.

"The team has been extremely strong in the past at keeping reliability on a high level so that is not a part that worries me, it is more we have seen today a Ferrari that is the stronger auto - strong in qualifying, strong in race and at no time we had a chance to fight for the win".

Four-time world champion Hamilton has had six poles and six wins overall in Canada and arrived seeking a record-equalling seventh victory.
