Red Bull victory possible in Canada - Ricciardo

Max Verstappen

Canada offers him scant hope of a reprieve, with this track's long straights likely to leave Red Bull, whose cars are best in high-downforce conditions, struggling behind Mercedes and Ferrari. Coming off a victory two weeks ago at Monaco, the Australian lost power early in the afternoon and spent more than an hour in the garage before returning to post the third-quickest time of 1:12.603 for Red Bull.

Verstappen, who started from the rear of grid at the Monaco Grand Prix after a crash in qualifying, offered the promise of something much better in Montreal, taking full advantage of an upgraded power unit to clock a polished one minute, 13.302 seconds around the 2.7 mile (4.34 km) sun-splashed Circuit Gilles Villeneuve. "We didn't have the smoothest day and we had what looks like an electrical problem with the engine".

Daniel Ricciardo triumphed last time out in Monaco, but it is defending champion Lewis Hamilton who still holds a 14-point title lead over Sebastian Vettel. In the first practice, the team Red Bull found a fault in the engine, so in the second session for a long time the Australian vehicle was demolished. "I will never do that, because it's brought me to where I am so far".

Hamilton will take some stopping considering he's finished outside the podium places in only one of the six races so far this season.

"The whole weekend we were very competitive and in the race and we were very happy with the result", he said.

The leader, as in the first exercise, it became Verstappen with a time of 1.12,198.

Renault introduced a new engine for all six cars in Canada, but Monaco GP victor Ricciardo trailed teammate Verstappen throughout practice, qualifying and the race.

Red Bull elected to run on the hypersoft compound in Q2, a strategic decision destined to provide its drivers with an edge at the outset on Sunday and keep them out of sequence thereafter against their direct rivals who will all be starting on the harder ultrasoft rubber.

"So, I'm going to have to work for it, but I would love to have this feeling every race, that we genuinely believe we've got a chance to win..." "I think it would have been a close fight for the pole with the new engine". The tyres were holding on really well at the end when I was challenging Valtteri because he was fuel saving which shows our auto was working well and for sure we have a very competitive vehicle at the moment. "But we're going to get it later anyway, so that's all good".

"In the end the sixth on paper is not that satisfying, but I actually feel like in qualifying we made a lot of progress", said the Red Bull driver. Obviously if something happens in practice then we will probably have to take one, but no is the answer today.
