ON POLE IN MONTREAL
Hamilton hopes to bounce back at the 2015 Canadian GP as Mercedes plays down its 'strategy blunder' in Monaco. Grabbing pole position at Montreal was his sixth in seven races in 2015 season.
Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel suffered power unit problems and failed to progress beyond the first session, qualifying only 16th. Toro Rosso's Max Verstappen will drop from 12th position, however, due to a 15-place grid penalty.
