- Vettel second on grid, Bottas third
(CNN)Lewis Hamilton will start Sunday's Canadian Grand Prix on pole after setting a blistering pace in Saturday's qualifying session in Montreal.
The three-time Formula One world champion set the fastest lap ever seen at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve circuit by an F1 car clocking one minute 11.459 seconds around the 4.361-kilometer (2.709-mile) track.
In doing so, Hamilton equaled the career pole tally of his hero Ayrton Senna who started from the front of the grid 65 times during a glittering F1 career.
