Vettel's Canada penalty - The Stewards' decision in full

Vettel's Canada penalty - The Stewards' decision in full

But the four-time world champion managed to turn things around and nail his final lap to put in a time of 1m10.240s, edging out Hamilton by 0.206 seconds for his first pole since last year's German Grand Prix after the Mercedes driver made a costly error at the hairpin, running wide and losing time.

Vettel is looking to repeat as Canadian Grand Prix champion.

It marks Vettel's first pole position since last year's German Grand Prix and only the second for Ferrari this season, and the German says he enjoyed himself so much he wants to repeat the attempt.

"This is one of the tracks where you need to dare going very close to the walls in numerous places", said Vettel, who also won in Montreal in 2013 with Red Bull. They were faster and in the last sector they were killing us, the timing was right, procedures were flawless, we had P1 for a second, but we knew they were quick.

His lap was more than 0.2 sec clear of Lewis Hamilton's Mercedes and nearly 0.7 sec quicker than his teammate Charles Leclerc, in third.

"You can not compare this time with 20 or 30 years ago when Nelson Piquet and Nigel Mansell or whoever collapsed after a race", Toro Rosso team principal Franz Tost said on Friday.

"The vehicle felt better and better through qualifying". "Once we can establish that I think we have plenty of reason to look forward".

Racing Point's Lance Stroll saw his new power unit burst into flames during FP3, leaving Mercedes boss Toto Wolff anxious.

Hamilton has won the Canadian Grand Prix six times, starting with his first win in F1 here back in 2007 with the McLaren F1 Team.

If anything, the Mercedes championship leader sounded like he couldn't have been happier with the result, even if it means he will start Sunday's race in the No. 2 position. "It's very bumpy, it's very tight".

Any hopes of rival teams that Mercedes would experience a few hiccups transitioning to an upgraded power unit were quickly dispelled with Hamilton topping the timing charts in each session and settling there until his run in with the wall.

Vettel was leading from pole position with a little more than 20 laps remaining.

Elsewhere, Max Verstappen and Pierre Gasly finished fifth and sixth respectively for Red Bull.

"This will make Canada a huge challenge for us as the track characteristics could favour our opponents". "Honestly, I don't feel disappointment", he said.

Despite his struggles, Perez was able to maintain his 100 percent qualifying record over Stroll in 2019, who in turn was eliminated in Q1 for the 11th race in a row.

It was the 56th pole position of Vettel's career and came after Kevin Magnussen had crashed into the "wall of champions" in his Haas vehicle at the end of Q2. The race is on Sunday.
