Max Verstappen sweeps Friday F1 practice in Montreal

Max Verstappen scored around the track in Montreal to record the quickest times in both practices ahead of the Canadian Grand Prix.

Formula 1 driver Max Verstappen does not want to talk about his proclivity for crashing so far in 2018.

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. "They were quicker on the harder tire for the moment, but we'll be all right".

Our best advice to Verstappen this weekend is to go through practice, qualifying and the race without any accidents.

Valtteri Bottas was sixth with neither Mercedes cars using the Hypersoft tyre on Friday due to having only five sets.

Latifi, the Force India reserve driver, ran only in the first of two 90-minute practice sessions before handing the pink auto back to regular driver Sergio Perez of Mexico.

In the morning, Latifi ran 28 laps, with 1:17.145 his best.

The Spaniard, celebrating his 300th grand prix this weekend, was fastest early on before a brief red-flag period when Nico Hulkenberg's Renault stopped on track with gearbox issues, and continued to appear close to the sharp end throughout the 90 minutes.

"I'm confident I can turn things around".

Hamilton will probably end the session happiest as the ultra-soft is reckoned to be in the region of 0.7secs slower than the hyper-soft.

Canada is a tricky track where mistakes are often plentiful because of the proximity of concrete walls to fast and demanding chicanes. "We had some problems this morning and they tried to fix it during lunch but it didn't improve". The one from the failure in China is alive, hence we haven't got a penalty. The 19-year-old made it slowly back to the Williams garage.

Stroll is the first Canadian in F1 since 1997 world champion Jacques Villeneuve of St-Jean-Sur-Richelieu, Que., left the series in 2006.

The session was briefly interrupted by a red flag when Carlos Sainz span and swiped the wall with the rear of his Renault.

Daniel Ricciardo is keeping his fingers crossed he'll be spared a painful grid penalty for Sunday's Canadian Grand Prix despite Adrian Newey's view to the contrary.

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. He is hoping to build on last year's appearance at his hometown track, when as a rookie he earned the first points of his Formula One career.
