Ferrari is running an engine update in Montreal.

Sebastian Vettel has claimed the pole position in the Formula One Canadian Grand Prix with the fastest lap ever on the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve.

That's if Canadiens fans still remember what that sounds like. That was 0.088 seconds faster than defending champion Lewis Hamilton in his Mercedes. He attended the Canadian Grand Prix the last two years without getting a chance to drive.

"Well, it was a long time ago", Vettel said about Schumacher taking the pole position. The auto all weekend has been really strong, every session we made progress with the vehicle and I'm feeling confident on the track.

"I'm really exhausted of all the comments about me - that I should change my approach", he said. 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.

"Tomorrow is a different day though, we'll see what happens. The laps weren't great laps", said the Mercedes driver, like Vettel a four times champion. "It has brought me to where I am right now and after the race is not the right time to talk". Overtaking is always hard.

"Overall I was happy with the session".

Max Verstappen entered the Canadian Grand Prix weekend with a vendetta after a tough round at Monaco in May. "In general, I like coming here".

McLaren, Mercedes and Ferrari were all well represented Saturday, with kiosks lining the curbs of Peel Street in downtown Montreal. "The meaning for Scuderia Ferrari in this country is huge".

Vettel said Thursday that his favourite track on the F1 circuit is Suzuka, Japan, but he also enjoys Circuit Gilles Villeneuve.

"I got the job done", Vettel said. While the driver and the team would like to add another win to their tally, there's a lot more than just that riding on today's result. It makes it spicy, but interesting because it's very easy to do a mistake. But even if not, there are now a number of drivers - including all Mercedes-powered cars - using older power units than intended for the race. It's got a nice rhythm.

The race is finely poised, with differing style strategies among the top three teams. Vettel comes up with a new name for his vehicle each year. Yesterday we were a bit in trouble. There's not much room for errors here. "We're laughing about it because at one point that's the only thing you've got to do". He sits sixth in the standings some 75 points behind leader Lewis Hamilton and with less than half the number of his Australian Red Bull team-mate Daniel Ricciardo.

All three have won two races so far this season.

"We need to understand more about everything today but let's see what we can do tomorrow".

"Ultimately we don't have as many hypersofts as everyone else".

"All I'm hoping for is reliability".

But he admitted that will it be hard to edge out his rivals due to the similar speeds between the front three teams.
