Max Verstappen fastest in both practices at Canadian GP, Brendon Hartley 12th

There was confusion at the end when model Winnie Harlow was told to wave the chequered flag early, prompting the official race to be ended two laps early - a gut-wrench for Ricciardo who set two fastest laps on the final two laps, meaning his team-mate was awarded the gong.

That left his Red Bull team-mate Daniel Ricciardo, who won the Monaco Grand Prix two weeks ago, down in third, four-tenths of a second adrift, ahead of championship leader and defending four-time champion Lewis Hamilton of Mercedes. "Every single weekend you go in you try to win and here practice has been good". "We did pretty well considering.the weekend we lacked some rhythm".

"We have got the pace in the auto to challenge for pole, but we are not really getting the best out of the hyper-softs", said Mercedes team chief Toto Wolff. "We didn't have the smoothest day and we had what looks like an electrical problem with the engine". We are still lacking a bit of top speed, but we can make some improvements and tonight we will see what we can do. So qualifying was good. I know it's fourth but I'm actually happy. I'm really happy with what I did and what the team did. "But looking at where we were, it doesn't make me satisfied, but I feel like we did all we could with what we had".

Ricciardo suspects Hamilton would have been capable of a quicker time than Verstappen.

"I would say Merc are going to be the favourites" said Ricciardo.

"It's probably the first time in a while that we have gained really good team points so it's a good weekend from that perspective and also good for Max". He has been comfortable from the start, and he has been able to set up each run and they have not really changed the auto at all. We're chasing our tail a bit more. "So it is a combination of that and the fact that he has just been driving really well".

"We knew we'd probably have cars to overtake, particularly in the beginning, and just starting on that hyper could just give us that opportunity". Red Bull feared it would force a switch onto his third MGU-K component of the season - enough for a ten-place grid drop, which may have triggered a few other changes with their own penalty attached.

"I am still happy with the decision".

"It's still a hard track to overtake [on] - I don't know to what point, but I would at least guess the first three laps we should have a bit of an advantage", said Ricciardo. "I've started sixth here as well since and didn't win". "Now we just have to break it down and get it in the best position for (qualifying)".

The Aussie qualified P6 on Saturday afternoon, with team mate Max Verstappen three places ahead following a session that perhaps did not reflect the progress Ricciardo feels was achieved.
