  • The Mercedes pit crew practice their pit stops during the third practice session at the Formula One Canadian Grand Prix auto race Saturday

Max Verstappen looked in too good of a mood to head butt anyone.

Twenty-four hours after his impetuous performance at a pre-race news briefing, in which he threatened to "head-butt" his inquisitors, it was a ideal answer to those who had questioned his temperament after a series of incidents this season.

Early on, Brendon Hartley of Toro Rosso briefly topping the times, the New Zealander emhpasizing his talent after weeks of rumours that he was in danger of losing his seat. "I think that's contributed to it, and also he's just been driving really well all weekend". "The auto was working well". He edged Kimi Raikkonen's Ferrari at 1:12.320.

Ricciardo suspects Hamilton would have been capable of a quicker time than Verstappen.

Max Verstappen completed the second training session in Montreal on the top line of the Protocol.

Verstappen's decision-making has been challenged following crashes at Baku, when he and Ricciardo took each other out of contention for the podium, and at Monaco, when the Dutchman missed qualifying after crashing at the end of the third practice session.

Ricciardo had problems early in the session, but after repairs was able to rejoin the fray and clock a very competitive time.

The Australian, fastest in the morning, had said he was confident of fighting for victory on Sunday.

Mercedes chose to bring only five sets of the fast and slick hyper-softs compared to rival teams with eight, a tactical move that may hand the initiative to Red Bull or Ferrari.

Lewis Hamilton will start the race from fourth after a disappointing qualifying session, which saw him removed from the Canadian front-row for the first time in seven years.

"It's the tail end of that pack, which is why I'm not happy - but looking at where we were, it doesn't make me satisfied, but I feel we did all we could with what we had".

Latifi ran 28 laps.

Asked about his driving style after arriving in Montreal, he said, "I get really exhausted of all the questions". "It was especially nice on my last lap to see all the Canadian flags waving to me". I'm really happy with what I did and what the team did. "It was waiting, waiting, waiting and eventually we got out. I kept it off the walls, which isn't easy to do on this track".

"A lot of laps, good information that's been absorbed", the 19-year-old said.

Red Bull opted to revert to one already in the pool instead of sacrificing a good starting position for a new part, which would have sparked a grid penalty. Latifi has a shot at being the next if he gets enough points in the F2 series to earn his superlicence. "If we got in that mess around here on this circuit, it is not as bad as Monaco but it is still very hard to make much progress here". "It would be great to see Canada continue to expand in the sport".

Latifi was named reserve driver by Force India this season after holding a similar position with Renault.

He has raced in the F2 series the last two seasons and now sits 10th in F2 standings after eight races this year, including a third-place finish at Baku, Azerbaijan.
