Montreal - Lewis Hamilton has driven his Mercedes to the fastest time in the first practice at the 2017 Canadian Grand Prix.

The five-time champion at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve completed the 4.361km lap in 1min13.809 seconds.

He was about two-tenths of a second faster than Sebastien Vettel's Ferrari. Hamilton's teammate, Valtteri Bottas, was third fastest, just 0.04 seconds behind Vettel.

The opening session was a disappointment for Honda's Fernando Alonso. He stopped on the track with 15 minutes left, reporting heavy steering and a gearbox problem.

Hometown favorite Lance Stroll was 13th best.
