Vettel and Raikkonen subdued after hard day for Ferrari

Canadian Grand Prix - Strategy guide Sebastian Vettel wins Canadian Grand Prix for 50th career victory

Mercedes offered Hamilton the option of turning down his engine in the closing laps, but he declined, pressuring Ricciardo and getting to within a second of the Red Bull.

Lewis Hamilton complained of intermittent power loss from fourth place, and with Daniel Ricciardo - who had jumped Kimi Raikkonen for fifth, bearing down on him, the Mercedes driver was recalled to the pits for an early tire change and to add some cooling to the auto.

"It was not the happiest of days for me", he said. 'It isn't as dramatic as people say it is. Of course, I haven't scored the points I should have scored, but that was not only my fault.

Red Bull's Max Verstappen, under pressure to clean up his act after a string of crashes and costly errors, has clocked the fastest time in both free practice sessions for the Canadian Grand Prix.

Hamilton will have to cope with the supercharged Verstappen starting from third - the Dutchman having responded to his critics in flawless fashion since he threatened to "head-butt" someone on Thursday when irked by persistent questions about his many crashes this year. In Bahrain, he punctured a tire while trying a risky move to overtake Hamilton, who called the move "silly" and part of a pattern of mistakes.

A defiant Max Verstappen says he is so exhausted of ongoing questions about his crash-filled campaign that he is going to "headbutt" someone if he is probed on it for much longer.

Sebastian Vettel made some history for his Italian team this weekend, first by taking pole on Saturday, the first time in 17 years since Michael Schumacher did so in 2001.

"This morning when I went out straight away it felt a lot better". 'I will never do that because it has brought me to where I am right now, and after the race it is not the right time to talk.

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.

"Now he (Verstappen) is in the spotlight. any small error now I think he's probably going to get a little picked apart from", Ricciardo said. Some things that we tried and some things that I think we need to work on. "I was a lot happier with the vehicle and I think we can carry that into the race. If we can escape this weekend without it, I'd rather take it somewhere else".

The other ace up Red Bull's sleeve will be at the start when the hyper-soft compound should offer better traction off the line.

"I think so", he said with a laugh. Although a faster vehicle is one of his goals for next year, he was also asked if his success this season has increased his asking price.
