Vettel takes 3rd straight pole at F1 Canadian GP
MONTREAL (AP) - Sebastian Vettel earned pole position at Formula One’s Canadian Grand Prix for the third consecutive year.
The championship points leader drove the fastest lap in the final qualifying session with a time of 1 minute, 25.425 seconds. It’s his third pole position of the year, and he’ll be looking for his third victory in Sunday’s race.
Lewis Hamilton will be in the front row on the 2.71-mile course located on the Ile Notre Dame. It’s the second straight year the two will line up side-by-side in the front row at the Circuit Giles Villeneuve.
Intermittent rain dampened the course and slowed the cars for the last two of the three qualifying sessions. The forecast Sunday called for a low chance of rain.
Driving for Infiniti Red Bull, Vettel enters the weekend with a 21-point lead over Kimi Raikkonen’s Lotus in the Formula One standings.
The second qualifying session was interrupted when Felipe Massa turned sideways and skidded into the wall at Turn 3. The Brazilian banged his hands on the steering wheel of his Ferrari before climbing out of the car.
Rookie Valtteri Bottas was third in qualifying _ the first time he has qualified in the front two rows. Monaco winner Nico Rosberg, who had been on the pole for the previous three races this year, was fourth on Saturday, followed by Mark Webber and Fernando Alonso.
Earlier Saturday, the teams completed their third practice run, a session that was cut short to allow for the repair of a barrier that was damaged during a support race. Webber had the fastest lap in practice on Saturday (1:17.895).
