Senna family clarifies Hamilton helmet gift

It was the Briton's third pole this year, his sixth in Canada - equalling the record of German Michael Schumacher - and the 65th of his career. Only Michael Schumacher, with 68 poles - and himself a seven-time race victor in Montreal at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve - stands ahead on the all-time list.

After Ferrari had dominated the day's final practice, Hamilton moved it up a level with a lap faster than any previously recorded at the sun-bathed island circuit.

Championship leader Vettel's 1:12.572 was 0.3s quicker than Lewis Hamilton's pole time around the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve a year ago and had roughly the same gap as his margin to Ferrari teammate Kimi Raikkonen in FP3. "The team did a fantastic job to learn from our mistakes in the last race [when Hamilton finished seventh in Monaco to fall 25 points behind Vettel in the drivers' standings]".

Sebastian Vettel, fourth in the qualifying statistics with 47, will leave Montreal with the championship lead no matter what the result on Sunday.

The souvenir: A helmet worn by Ayrton Senna, whose family sent it in anticipation of one three-time Formula One champion matching another by claiming his 65th career pole position on Saturday at the Canadian Grand Prix.

"It's not going to suit our vehicle as much as the twisty, slower corners of Monaco, but I'm excited to get back in the MCL32 ... and get back out on track - not only turning left this time!" "They have a very strong package and we need to rise to the challenge to prove once again that we are the team to beat".

Accuser: Cosby drugged, forced himself on her
Bill Cosby departs after his sexual assault trial at the Montgomery County Courthouse, Monday, June 5, 2017 in Norristown, Pa. Andrea Constand's deposition states that the last thing she heard before she passed out what "I'm going to let you relax".

"I thought we could step it up and find a bit of time".

"I'm shaking", Hamilton said, gazing at his hero's crash helmet.

"I probably pushed a bit too hard - losing a bit here a bit there - and then I tried a bit of catch-up but it was a good qualifying session though at the end". The third row has the Red Bulls of Max Verstappen and 2014 Canadian GP victor Daniel Ricciardo.

The Spaniard's Belgian team mate Stoffel Vandoorne had an even more frustrating day and will start 16th in the 20 vehicle field.

The second McLaren of Stoffel Vandoorne was in 16th, eliminated in Q1 in front of the Williams of Lance Stroll, and the Haas of Kevin Magnussen with the two Saubers of Marcus Ericsson and Pascal Wehrlein in 19th and 20th. Many, many drivers were struggling but Romain Grosjean took the biscuit with two spins in two laps and then a third just to make sure.

Toro Rosso's Carlos Sainz wasn't able to post a time as he left with his engine smoking in the opening minutes.
