Does Ferrari know where Montreal is?

Does this skyline look like Montreal to you

Mercedes has postponed the introduction of its new Formula 1 engine, after a last minute quality issue emerged on the eve of the Canadian Grand Prix.

Vettel and teammate Kimi Raikkonen had been unable to challenge Hamilton in Melbourne qualifying, both finishing nearly seven-tenths of a second off the defending champion.

Certainly all the ingredients are in place for another thrilling Sunday afternoon as Hamilton, Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel and Ricciardo bring their battle to Montreal. But there's no point to think about the past, I just want to keep on going.

Mercedes, closest rivals Ferrari and Red Bull have each won two races so far.

Last year, Esteban Ocon and Sergio Perez kick-started their rivalry in Montreal as the lack of a Force India team order potentially cost Ocon a first F1 podium, nevertheless, their cars always feature near or at the top in the speed trap which is a good stat to lead at this track. How the hypersoft tires hold up in practice and qualifying will determine their future as a potential race tire.

"I'm still in a little bit of disbelief as I don't really understand what happened yet". "It was waiting, waiting, waiting and eventually we got out".

"For me, this is a very exciting race".

It was a rough day for Renault, which saw Nico Hulkenberg fail to post a flying lap in the first session because of a gearbox problem and then run 14th in the afternoon.

Romain Grosjean damaged his nose cone when he hit an animal, believed to be a groundhog in the afternoon.

Canadian Lance Stroll, in the other Williams, caught the Wall of Champions in the morning and punctured a tire.

It will be a memorable weekend also for two-time champion Fernando Alonso, who is entered for his 300th Grand Prix and, potentially, his 298th start.

Ferrari's racing division was ridiculed online Tuesday after it tweeted about this weekend's Formula One race in Montreal using an image of downtown Toronto.

"Following Lewis's pit stop, we believed that we had the scenarios of both the safety vehicle and the virtual safety auto covered, so that Sebastian could not pit and come out ahead of Lewis on track".

"I can't wait to get to Canada as it is my favourite race of the year", commented Stroll, who was himself born in Montreal.
