Hamilton feels Ferrari will 'falter' in F1 title battle

Ferrari F1 ace Sebastian Vettel on pole with record lap at Canadian Grand Prix

Canadian F1 Grand Prix 2018 Qualifying: Saturday's Results, Times, Final Grid

Sebastian Vettel described Friday practice for the Canadian Grand Prix as "a disaster".

Valtteri Bottas similarly changed compound 20 laps later than teammate Lewis Hamilton and looked like possibly mounting a charge for the win in the final 10 laps, but a mistake trying to lap backmarkers ended any hopes of catching the German.

Cue some serious work overnight, both in Montreal and at Ferrari's Maranello base with reserve driver Antonio Giovinazzi putting in the miles in the simulator.

It seems rather weird that McLaren are spending time and resources on establishing an IndyCar team during the worst period in their F1 history.

Bottas' second also sees him jump back above Ricciardo into third in the standings, albeit 35 and 37 points behind respectively. Noting that he had a lap count on his steering wheel and on his pit board, he said: "After I saw the flag, I told the team "I think the race isn't over yet" and they said "No, keep pushing".

IHOb: International House of Burgers
IHOP's same-restaurant sales - or sales at locations open at least a year - declined 1.9 percent in its most recent fiscal year. The temporary change celebrates the debut of the brand's new 'Ultimate Steakburgers, ' a line-up of seven new burgers .

Although the race ended in slightly freaky circumstances, it began with huge drama after Lance Stroll and Brendon Hartley crashed on lap one.

"Having had one or two more sets to accommodate the drivers better for qualifying [in Canada] would have maybe helped us secure pole position".

"I just thought it was going to fail and every single lap I was just on the edge waiting for that power to drop away", explained the happy and relieved driver.

"I don't know, I haven't seen much of the times of the others so it's hard to read yet". With 20 laps remaining, Hamilton began to find a rhythm to move within a second of Ricciardo while Bottas, at the front, trimmed Vettel's lead to 3.8 seconds. I don't think anyone wants to be cheated of that.

Daniel Ricciardo, a victor two weeks ago in Monaco in another race panned for being boring, brought his Red Bull in third, just ahead of defending champion Lewis Hamilton's Mercedes. "I'm just grateful the engine made it".

Woman caught transporting children in dog kennels
Cheeks is being charged with child endangerment , while police and Child Services continue their investigations. Skylarr Blake, who lives a few doors down from Cheeks, said he couldn't imagine her doing such a thing.

The race began in near-perfect conditions with an air temperature of 20 degrees Celsius and the track at 45 as the lights went out.

"Our auto wasn't good enough, so I won't get too upset".

Behind the leaders, there was chaos when Williams's Canadian Lance Stroll squeezed Toro Rosso's Brendon Hartley into the wall. Both cars were badly damaged but the drivers escaped uninjured.

"We need to wake up now".

Stroll, 19, was in is second Canadian GP.

Merkel: G-7 summit with Trump was a 'sobering' experience
Trade was a massive issue at this year's summit with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and President Trump butting heads. Trump's decision to withdraw his support for the communique has drawn sharp criticism from European countries.

McLaren's Fernando Alonso chalked up 300 career grands prix but the Spaniard had little to celebrate as the two-time world champion's day came to an early end, his McLaren coasting to a stop midway through the race with a mechanical failure.
