The Qualifying of 2017 Canadian GP witnessed another spectacular performance form the guy who currently rules this track, the guy who has won his first race here and went on to win 4 more races in the coming years and has equivalent number of poles. But this Saturday he again showed why is the fastest man on the track. This guy is none another than the 3x World Champion , Lewis Hamilton. He was surprised when the Senna Family gifted him a Helmet which Senna used in one of his F1 race, as an appreciation on equalling Senna’s record of 65 Pole Positions.
LH broke the qualifying record today. He was just outstanding in Q3. Despite Vettel coming so close 0.004s , Hamilton maintained his calm and bounced back much stronger thereby getting the pole by 0.33s
His teammate BO77AS again qualified third. He qualified P3 in 6 races this season. The 1 where he didn’t qualified P3 was where he took the pole.
Kimi qualified P4, which was not expected. After showing the pace in FP2 & FP3 this result was not expected.
Max, finished P5 which was the best he could have done
Ricciardo qualifying P6 locked the Row3 of the Grid
Massa once again out qualified not only his teammate Stroll (P17) but also the 2 Force India Drivers (P8-9)
Hulk again made it to Q3 but failed to move up the order.
Kvyat & Sainz could have made it to Q3 hadn’t the yellow flags interfered
Alonso again out qualified his rookie teammate who finished P16. Coming from a wonderful race weekend at INDY getting back into the shitty Honda engine all he could manage was P12
Both the HAAS drivers struggled here. After an amazing qualifying in Monaco this is what they never wanted but they knew it was coming
Jolyon Palmer made it to Q2 this time but failed as everytime
both the saubers struggled horribly inlcuding the crash.
so the standings after the chequered flag would be..
Lewis, BO77AS, Vettel, Max, Kimi, Perez, Ricciardo, Ocon, Sainz, Massa, Kvyat, Stroll, Alonso, Hulk , Grosjean, Pascal, Magnussen, Vandoorne, Ericsson, Palmer.
