  • 'If I get a few more I'll head-butt someone' - F1 driver snaps over line of questioning

On a track like this when you have to attack kerbs so much it's important you feel at home and have confidence to play around and I think then you can extract a bit more from the vehicle.

The Red Bull driver said at a news conference Thursday before the Canadian Grand Prix that he's exhausted of questions about the crash in Azerbaijan that also knocked out teammate Daniel Ricciardo, or the one in Monaco that sent him to the back of the grid.

But Ferrari often start weekends slowly only to leap up the timing sheets on Saturday when it matters, and Vettel was only 0.272secs behind Verstappen's pace-setting lap.

Asked why he had experienced so many crashes, he paused before he said: "I don't know". Circuit Gilles Villeneuve... Gilles is huge for Ferrari and Canada is linked to that name. You can see there's a lot of flags.

Israel blasted the move as ignoring what it says is Hamas' role in the violence and said it won't co-operate with investigators. The Israeli army said one of its soldiers was hit by a rock while conducting the arrest and responded by shooting.

In a tight and intriguing contest between the three leading teams, Vettel clocked a best lap in a record one minute, 10.764 seconds to secure his 54th pole position and outpace nearest rival Valtteri Bottas of Mercedes and Max Verstappen. "It's great when you have a session like that".

Verstappen signed a long-term contract with Red Bull towards the end of the last season, keeping him at the Milton Keynes based team until 2020.

The Dutchman, who has had a hard start to the season with a series of crashes and errors, said: "I am really happy with this weekend so far".

He retired in Azerbaijan after a collision with Ricciardo and in China he tangled with Hamilton and Vettel, finishing fifth after a 10-second penalty demoted him from fourth, while Ricciardo won the race. "But it showed in Monaco that we have a great vehicle".

Kimi Raikkonen in the other Ferrari and Monaco victor Daniel Ricciardo are in the third row.

Red Bull have chosen to start the race on the fastest but most fragile "hyper-soft" tyre, while both Mercedes and Ferrari chose to go through second qualifying, which defines the race-start tyre, on the more durable ultra-soft. "Merc are going to be quick tomorrow - I would say they're the ones to beat at the moment". "We've seen this year it's very close between the three teams and the six drivers so we'll see, but for sure if you start on pole you want to win".

Martin Truex Jr. wins Pocono 400
Each has had a three-race winning streak: Harvick at Atlanta, Las Vegas and Phoenix; Busch at Texas, Bristol and Richmond. By the time everyone had completed the green-flag cycle of pit stops, Harvick reemerged as the race leader on Lap 35.
