Daniel Ricciardo suspects Mercedes have the upper hand in Canada

Hamilton is concerned that doing this race with an old engine that will have lost a small amount of power over its life could be enough to make it hard to contend for victory at a track where he has won six times in 10 races.

The Red Bull driver has been involved in incidents at every one of the six race weekends this year, but claimed it was not "as dramatic as people say".

Now, Red Bull chief Christian Horner has given his support to Verstappen after he threatened the press.

Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo suspects Mercedes has the upper hand at this weekend's Canadian Grand Prix, despite his team-mate Max Verstappen topping both of Friday's practice sessions.

When he brought his Ferrari out for qualifying a day later, his problems - and the rest of the field - were behind him.

The man reportedly asked for the Iranian embassy to be contacted but the police did not confirm the report. An Interior Ministry official said negotiations with the suspect were taking place.

He retired in Azerbaijan after a collision with Ricciardo and in China he tangled with Hamilton and Vettel, finishing fifth after a 10-second penalty demoted him from fourth, while Ricciardo won the race.

"I'm getting really exhausted of all the questions", said the 20-year-old, who has fewer than half the points of Red Bull team-mate Daniel Ricciardo ahead of Sunday's Canadian Grand Prix.

"Overall I was happy with the session". He closed in on Bottas towards the end as the Mercedes man let off, while Ricciardo gapped Hamilton behind with a series of strong laps while the reigning world champion nursed an engine issue.

"I think they re the ones to beat".

Stroll, in his second season with Williams, posted the 19th fastest time of 1:14.703, outpacing only his Russian teammate Sergey Sirotkin.

"I think we have the pace to take the fight to Ferrari and Mercedes", Verstappen told reporters later.

"I think my weekend has lacked a little bit of rhythm and we've been one step behind due to some of the issues on Friday", said Ricciardo.

Ferrari, looking for their first win in Montreal since 2004, flexed their muscles with Germany's Sebastian Vettel posting the second best effort, followed by Finnish team mate Kimi Raikkonen.

"It was a good day", Verstappen said. "With what we had, I feel I did a not bad job".

Indeed Ricciardo could be thrown to the back of the pack, dependant on the number of engine parts his Red Bull team have to change. "But we're going to get it later anyway, so that's all good".

"We extracted the best we could out of qualifying", he said. But we re still ok: "Max had good pace, but Mercedes are going to be big tomorrow (Saturday)", he said. His best lap was the slowest in the field at 1:17.145, but he was there just to get the feel of an F1 auto and help the team test it on two types of tires. Obviously if something happens in practice then we will probably have to take one, but no is the answer today.
