In the final five laps, Hamilton pushed Ricciardo hard in the battle for fourth but the Australian - victor at Monaco last time out - just held on with the four-time world champion forced to relinquish his standings lead as he recorded his lowest placing of the season.

Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo, the 2014 Canadian GP victor, is coming off a victory two weeks ago in Monaco.

"We have to keep applying the pressure".

"Yesterday the vehicle balance was great into Turn Ten", he continued, "and usually the last sector is my strongest at this track, but I was just struggling with massive bumps into Turn Ten".

"Ferrari ultimately have had a slightly better package".

The title race remains finely balanced but Ferrari will take great encouragement from victory at a circuit where Mercedes have been dominant, with Hamilton taking pole and winning for the last three years in Montreal.

Mercedes' weekend was hurt by it being forced to delay the introduction of its new engine because of reliability concerns, plus a poor tyre choice that left it limited with the number of hypersoft it had at its disposal.

Full details on the new technology stack are still unknown, but we can expect to hear a lot more about it from WWDC on Monday. That could include the announcement of ARKit 2 with new support for multiplayer modes in AR-based games.

"The vehicle was incredible in qualifying and it just kept getting quicker", said Vettel, whose Ferrari team were using new engines. It would be much more of a problem if I would be really slow, because that is a critical problem.' When pushed further to explain why he had crashed so much this year, Verstappen replied: 'Like I said I get a bit exhausted of all the questions.

"I was quite happy with my first run in Q3 but I knew there was something more in the auto for the first part of the lap", Vettel continued.

"It kept dropping and coming back and dropping again". It may have cost it pole - and, given the way the race unfolded, probably a win - so it will be fascinating to see how much extra the new specification of engine gives the world championship.

Lewis Hamilton has topped the grid on six occasions in Montreal, but he'll start from fourth place on Sunday.

"So far everything went well and I have a good feeling".

"All I'm hoping for is reliability".

"In my final lap I had a small mistake otherwise I think there was a little bit more". The sport is going in the wrong direction in my opinion. If I get a few more I will headbutt someone'.
