After the Englishman finished third in Monaco due to a horrendous pit stop error, Lewis Hamilton bounced back by taking pole position in Saturday’s Canadian Grand Prix qualifying session. Not at all surprisingly, his Mercedes teammate, Nico Rosberg, will start Sunday’s race in second place.

Vettel & Massa Eliminated in Canada’s Q1
Ferrari’s four-time world champion and one-time 2015 race winner, Sebastian Vettel, was shockingly eliminated in Canada’s first qualifying session and will start sixteenth on the grid. Quite clearly, however, the German’s poor performance was down to problems with his new engine.
Williams’ Felipe Massa, on the other hand, had no engine problems and simply couldn’t produce a fast enough lap. The Brazilian will start seventeenth in Sunday’s Canadian Grand Prix, while colleague Bottas qualified fourth.
Kimi Qualifies Third in Canada
Often underperforming in qualifying then rising a couple of places during the race, Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen could suffer the reverse fate after snaring third place on the grid in Saturday’s Canadian GP qualifying session.
Lotus Impress in Canada
Forever underperforming and often failing to finish races, the Lotus tandem of Roman Grosjean and Pastor Maldonado looked to finally be making use of their car’s power by qualifying fifth and sixth in Canada.
The Force is Strong in Hulk and Perez
Still using last season’s car after the release of their ‘b’ spec car was postponed until the Austrian Grand Prix, Force India had a strong Saturday in Canada, with Nico Hulkenberg being their most impressive driver after qualifying seventh. Sergio Perez will start tenth.
Button Unable to Qualify in Canada
Suffering from ERS problems, McLaren’s Jenson Button had to sit out Saturday’s Canadian Grand Prix qualifying session and will start Sunday’s race from the back of the grid. Teammate Fernando Alonso, meanwhile, qualified in fourteenth place after suffering elimination in Q2.
Canadian Grand Prix Betting
Pole-sitter Hamilton is priced at 3/10 with Paddy Power and several other firms, while teammate Rosberg is 4/1 with Bet 365. Third on the grid, Ferrari’s Raikkonen is offered at 22/1 with Paddy Power.
The Canadian Grand Prix Betting Tips
Hamilton’s won in Canada before and we expect him to win again on Sunday, but as usual we’re not backing a 3/10 shot. Instead, and although we’ll likely get out money back on this, we’ve opted for Rosberg each-way.
