Canadian GP qualifying quotes: Red Bull

Sebastian Vettel - 1st: "It was very tricky today, especially as you never knew what the conditions were going to be like the next time you went out. It was intermediate tyres throughout, but it was extremely difficult to adapt as the conditions were constantly changing. In the last qualifying session we decided to have two runs; we thought the second would be quicker, as we had a new set of tyres for that, but it started to drizzle in the last sector, in particular in the chicane. I went straight there on one lap and on the second I had a mistake somewhere else, so it turned out that the first run was the important one. I'm happy the lap was good enough, as it was tight with Lewis. Congratulations to Valtteri, I think he did an excellent job putting the Williams on P3. For us, I am extremely happy with the result and looking forward to the race tomorrow. I think we had strong pace yesterday, so no matter what the conditions we should be in decent shape."

Mark Webber - 5th: "That was quite tricky for everyone. It's a bit of a mixed grid and I would have liked to have been a bit more comfortable than fifth, but in the end it's what we got. There's a long way to go tomorrow, so let's see how it unfolds. It was a good job by Bottas and it should be an interesting grand prix. Dry conditions tomorrow are nicer for everyone as it makes it a bit more predictable and straightforward, and visibility here isn't great here if it rains."

Christian Horner: "It's fantastic to get the pole in Montreal. It was a really difficult qualifying session and it's very easy for things to go wrong in a session like that. Just to get both cars in Q3 was a result, so to get pole with Sebastian and P5 with Mark on the grid for tomorrow's grand prix is a really positive starting position."

(Renault) Thierry Salvi: "A difficult session, with rain on and off, so congratulations to Sebastian and the team for getting it spot on. The circuit is one of the hardest on the engines, with the long straights combined with heavy braking zones, so starting from pole is a good feeling. We know it's a long race tomorrow and conditions will be very different from today but we'll do our best to help the team score its first win in Canada."

The inconvenient questions posed by Vettel’s Williams run

Sebastian Vettel's demo laps on board his own Williams FW14B was not only a great spectacle for the fans, but were carried out with a fully sustainable, carbon-neutral fuel. And it begs the question - for all of the money F1 has spent on championing hybrids and electric components, could it go back to V8s or V10s with a similar kind of fuel?

OPINION: Ferrari won the British Grand Prix with Carlos Sainz, but it ultimately cost Charles Leclerc a chance to make a bigger dent in Max Verstappen's title lead by leaving the Monegasque out on old tyres towards the end.
