Max Verstappen sweeps Friday F1 practice in Montreal

"It was great to carry the momentum we've had this year into qualifying", said Vettel, who took pole position for the fourth time in seven races this season.

There wasn't a happy end to Fernando Alonso's 300th Grand Prix weekend.

Going into the weekend, Mercedes-AMG's Lewis Hamilton leads the 2018 Drivers' Championship with 110 points.

Four-time world champion Hamilton has had six poles and six wins overall in Canada and arrived seeking a record-equalling seventh victory.

In the Thursday press conference, Verstappen faced a barrage of questions about his approach to racing and his temperament but on Friday, he did his real talking - delivering a faultless display on a track where Red Bull was not expected to contend.

Militants kill one, wound five in attack on interior ministry in Kabul
All 10 attackers - three suicide bombers and seven gunmen - were killed by security forces, the Interior Ministry confirmed. About the attack in the Afghan capital, reports Reuters with reference to sources in local police.

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 says he was very happy to secure pole position ahead of tomorrow's Canadian Grand Prix, but the German believed he could have gone even faster than he did.

But Bottas and Hamilton may have been set back by the team's inability to get an updated engine ready in time for the race, while Ferrari and Red Bull both had new parts.

There's one point in it at the top, and Valtteri Bottas, Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen can all get themselves right back in there if a result or two goes their way.

It was a strong result for Bottas, who made himself the leading Mercedes driver for the weekend thanks to his better feeling for Pirelli's softest tires, but he lamented that his auto didn't have the pace to challenge for more.

Facebook bug switched privacy settings of 14 million accounts to 'public'
These featured items are publicly visible, but Facebook inadvertently extended that setting to all new posts from those users. The specific tool being tested was a "featured items" option on a user's profile that highlights photos and other content.

The Finn added: "It's always annoying when it's so close and we're not ahead - but starting on the front row is good for this race".

"I need to look into it to see exactly what it is, but there was a good chunk of time there, definitely in that corner alone there was pole position for sure if I'd figured out how to fix it".

It is his third win this season, and a strong riposte after Ferrari failed to perform at their best in Spain and were beaten by Red Bull in Monaco.

"It's just been a hard day", he said after unexpectedly being out-qualified by team-mate Bottas. "Thanks to the team for fixing the vehicle yesterday after I hit the wall".

The Mission E Has a Real Name
With the lack of charging infrastructure, the chances of the Taycan coming to India anytime soon are nearly non-existent. The Mission E concept generates almost 600bhp via a lithium-ion battery and two electric motors, one on each axle.
