"I quickly saw that it was going to be hard to take pole position but you always do your best and try to get the best out of the vehicle".

"It was a special feeling pulling out of pit lane - I had a big smile on my face", said Latifi.

In the 40th year since Gilles Villeneuve's victory at the Canadian Grand Prix, it is only fitting that a Ferrari will start at the front.

The team took some time to find its pace over the weekend with Vettel not fully at ease with the auto until qualifying when he found the set-up he wanted to deliver an impressive pole, from which he dictated the race and converted into an equally impressive win.

"I get really exhausted of asking me that I should change my approach", he said at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve on Montreal's Ile Notre-Dame.

Mercedes offered Hamilton the option of turning down his engine in the closing laps, but he declined, pressuring Ricciardo and getting to within a second of the Red Bull.

Red Bull's Max Verstappen put in an excellent lap to place third, ahead of Lewis Hamilton and Kimi Raikkonen. We still got everything out of the day we needed but we were compromised a bit for pace.

IHOP changing name to IHOB
But as IHOP/IHOb continued tweeting about its unexplained name change, things "kept getting weirder", as one Arabic speaker said. Though the pancake house has yet to offer an explanation for the sudden upcoming name change, it seems to be the real deal.

"I think he's pretty headstrong; he won't let it get to him too much", said the Australian, who won in Monaco and now sits in third place, 38 points behind Hamilton, in the standings.

Lance Stroll of Montreal, the first Canadian to race in F1 since Jacques Villeneuve left in 2006, qualified 17th as his Williams team's struggles continued. We knew that in Q3 and in general throughout the whole year with the auto, we're just lacking power.

From pre-season testing, through Monaco and right up to yesterday morning, Mercedes have steadfastly avoided using the hypersoft tyre introduced by Pirelli this season. I think it showed in Monaco that we have a great auto and again here.

When it comes to the twisty stuff, 11 of the 14 corners are taken below 100 miles per hour, which makes it particularly hard on the brakes and tires when the cars are coming from the high-speed straights.

"In the race, it all calms down a bit, which is why in general we are always a bit more competitive".

When asked if he felt Red Bull had the pace for pole after seeing teammate Daniel Ricciardo go quickest in Q2, he said: "I knew we had a good vehicle, but I wanted to wait and see how competitive we would be in Q3. We've seen this year it's very close between the three teams and the six drivers so we'll see, but for sure if you start on pole you want to win".
