    Lewis Hamilton

    Lewis Hamilton loves sitting outside the rear window of a Mercedes, doesn't he?

    It was his day today but it was not as dominant as he would have liked. Little over a tenth of a second separated the top three and you can be sure Nico Rosberg and Sebastian Vettel will keep Hamilton honest tomorrow.

    It promises to be a fascinating race, so join us for build up at 17:30 BST. Cheerio.

    Kevin Magnussen starts at the back tomorrow after failing to make it into qualifying after crashing in final practice.

    Meanwhile, Daniil Kvyat (13th) and Marcus Ericsson (19th) have three-place grid penalties for causing collisions at the previous round in Monaco.

    Great picture. It was like the back row of a cinema with all the kissing of the Wall of Champions today. 

  4. Not a sexy lap

    Here's a bit more from Lewis Hamilton, who rates that as as one of his worst pole laps: "I think there's always room to improve. 

    "Honestly that wasn't a great qualifying for me in terms of laps, they weren't that great. My pole lap was definitely at the lower end of the pole laps that I've had - so considering that fact I'm pretty happy I'm still on pole.

    "Of course in practice it was much bigger a gap and today just didn't have the pace I had yesterday, but clearly it was enough. There was definitely more time in it but it was great to see how close we all were for the fans."

    Will there be a first-time winner in Canada tomorrow?

    Lewis Hamilton, Sebastian Vettel, Daniel Ricciardo, Kimi Raikkonen, Fernando Alonso and Jenson Button are all previous winners in Canada.

    Nico Rosberg is the best placed driver to break his Canada duck.

  7. English spirit

    So as one Englishman qualifies on pole, you can follow all the action of some more Englishmen - the football team are in action against Russia at Euro 16. 

    There's live text commentary and BBC Radio 5 live coverage here.

    While Fernando Alonso was happy with his qualifying display, Jenson Button was not as happy after securing 12th: "Up until the last sector it was looking pretty good but we start on new tyres tomorrow so we should be alright. 

    "Getting in the points is the aim if it's dry but if it's wet, we are very good in terms of strategy, so we will see what we can do."

  11. 'A nice gift'

    Fernando Alonso

    Get the deckchair out. The good times are here for Fernando Alonso. For the third race weekend in a row, he's qualified in the top 10.

    "It was a nice surprise to be in Q3, a nice gift," said Alonso. "With the weather forecast, anything can happen."

  12. Post update

    Lewis Hamilton is talking to Sky F1 right now and isn't completely happy, despite being on pole.

    He says it wasn't the best lap he had ever had, especially after he was half a second quicker than Nico Rosberg on Friday.

    More from Lewis Hamilton: "Ferrari have picked up the pace and this is a good track for them. We're excited to race them tomorrow."

    I'm genuinely surprised it took us so long to get this one. Top work Bibhash!

  15. Post update

    Sebastian Vettel, who starts from third tomorrow: "I was maybe a bit greedy out of turn 10 and not greedy enough out of turn six. I wanted to get below the 13 mark to get near the Mercedes but only just."

  16. Post update

    Nico Rosberg does have reason to be optimistic if history is anything to go by. Since 2000, the race has been won from pole just six times.    

    All to play for.

  17. Post update

    Nico Rosberg, who qualified second: "I tried to pull one out of the bag but it didn't work. Second place, a great team result and for tomorrow. Everything is still possible.

    "The weather forecast is all over the place so from second place it is all do-able."

    Lewis Hamilton on his 53rd pole and fifth at Montreal: "It doesn't matter how far ahead as long as you're ahead. Today I didn't have the pace I had yesterday but it was enough. It was great for the fans to see how close we all were. It's going to be interesting tomorrow but it's a great place to start."

    The drivers news conference is up now. Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel have a little natter as the drivers are introduced. Nico Rosberg sits stony faced, staring dead ahead.
