Sebastian Vettel 'surprised' by one Red Bull decision during Canadian GP qualifying

Lewis Hamilton of Mercedes drives during a practice session at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve during a practice session for the F1 race in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, June 9, 2018. Valtteri Bottas of Mercedes was second, followed by Red Bull's Max Verstappen, Lewis Hamilton of Mercedes and Kimi Raikkonen in the second Ferrari.

"Yesterday we felt quite competitive and the vehicle was behaving quite well, so we were quite confident for today's qualifying, but we were not on the pace today unfortunately", Alonso said after qualifying in 14th place. "If we got in that mess around here on this circuit, it is not as bad as Monaco but it is still very hard to make much progress here". "I said earlier that the meaning for Scuderia Ferrari in this country is huge with the history". I don't know if we're faster yet than we've ever been, but I've really enjoyed it.

But this weekend in Montreal, Ferrari, Renault and Honda have all introduced upgrades. "But looking at where we were, it doesn't make me satisfied, but I feel like we did all we could with what we had".

"We had a few problems".

Mercedes' decision to choose the fewest number of hyper-soft tyres for this weekend out of all the teams may have contributed as neither driver had tried them until Saturday morning, but Hamilton can not blame only that as Bottas ended up on the front row.

But, like Hamilton, he felt the time difference out on track was down to the leading teams using different tyres. "We'll see what happens tomorrow".

"It was close between us but Ferrari did a better job than us today and that's the way it is".

Cristiano Ronaldo's wish to leave Real Madrid is 'irreversible'
Marcelo has also suggested that Neymar will one day inherit the crown now owned by Ronaldo. He had said: "it was very nice to be at Real Madrid ".

"So we should be there or thereabouts".

"I think we have definitely understood it but, still, you have to set it up and go with a certain spec. Every session we made progress".

Max Verstappen, who was quickest in all three pre-qualifying practice sessions, placed third and will start in the second row next to Hamilton, whose run of three straight Canadian poles ended. Picture: Steve Etherington for Daimler AG.

He said: "We were good on the hypersofts in Monaco and it gives us a chance to do well again this weekend". "The car's been working really be third is great for us".

"The vehicle felt good straight out of the garage". I guess it's just a little bit more finesse. "My laps weren't good and it just didn't quite come together for me", he said.

Indeed, the German manufacturer has stayed as far away from it as possible, only using it in the two sessions on Saturday and hope to complete a one-stop strategy using the Ultra and Supersoft compounds in the 70-lap race.

"However, comparing on the same tyres, we do look to be in better shape than we were in Monaco".
