Hartley subsequently went to hospital for a check-up Hamilton fans. presumably The Montreal marmots (or groundhogs) were getting very close to the action Too close, in fact, during Friday practice for Romain Grosjean 40 years after Gilles Villeneuve won his home race for Ferrari, his son Jacques drove his vehicle around the Montreal circuit before the race. From the number of red flags with the prancing pony logo, the Italian squad remains the clear favourite in the grandstands.

Fernando Alonso would have hoped to make Q3 in his 300th Grand Prix weekend, but he had to settle for P14 after finishing Q2 more than a second off the pace. Overtaking is relatively straightforward, speeds are high and the cars are pushed to their limits; likewise, the concrete walls punish any mistakes heavily but the drivers need the confidence to use all of the track, especially in qualifying where even the smallest of margins count.

The Ferrari driver was back at his best in Montreal, doing enough to beat the Mercedes of Valtteri Bottas and start at the front of the grid in Sunday's race, setting a best time of 1m10.764s.

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

Red Bull's Max Verstappen took third after a valiant but unsuccessful attempt to pass Bottas through the first two corners.




Stroll, 19, was in is second Canadian GP.

The Finn added: "It's always annoying when it's so close and we're not ahead - but starting on the front row is good for this race". Hamilton's chief championship rival, Sebastian Vettel, finished fifth.

Red Bull boss Christian Horner has hinted that Red Bull Racing is ready to take a gamble on Honda power units for the 2019 Formula 1 season, with a decision set to be made before the Austrian Grand.

Vettel admitted after qualifying he was "a passenger" during practice but says it felt "more natural" while driving his Ferrari in qualifying. Kimi Raikkonen, in the second Ferrari, was sixth. "I was a lot happier with the auto and I think we can carry that into the race". We're trying to compensate for that. Every single lap I was kind of on the edge just waiting for the power to drop away and disappear.
