We did the best we could with it.
Vettel, who stuck his Ferrari auto on pole position with a stunning performance in qualifying by breaking the lap record with a 1:10.764, will be starting on the ultrasoft compound and said it never crossed their mind to think otherwise.
"I think if I get a few more I'll head-butt someone", he said, only slowly allowing a faint grin.
Vettel powered his Ferrari around the 4.361-kilometre Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in one minute 10.776 seconds.
Verstappen arrived in Montreal under attack from all corners, after an incident-filled start to the season in which the 20-year-old reach the podium once in six races, while Ricciardo has recorded a pair of wins. He left a heritage, so I think the people who fell in love with motorsport back then are still there, and their kids and grandchildren.
"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.

The teams contest a race with their own rafts, built from parts found in the garages, across the rowing lake on the island that hosts the circuit, but Ferrari said they would not take part because they needed to go back and rest in their hotel.
The race continued in its holding pattern, with the leading Vettel, second-placed Valtteri Bottas and Raikkonen in third preserving their tires to guarantee a one-stop strategy.
"Yesterday the auto balance was great into Turn Ten", he continued, "and usually the last sector is my strongest at this track, but I was just struggling with massive bumps into Turn Ten".
"With the long straights it's hard to fight for pole position".
Again, Kimi Raikkonen led the Ferrari charge in second place, but Monaco victor Daniel Ricciardo, who missed a large chunk of FP2 as mechanics rushed to fix a mechanical problem, was able to end the day third. "But as I said at the start, I am exhausted of these questions and if I get any more I am going to head-butt someone". "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".
