Highlight Notes
SESSION 1: Hamilton takes the top spot from Vettel, who is nearly two-tenths off the pace. Finnish teammates follow suit. Force India surprisingly quick. But it's just getting started. Track evolution will play a big role over the weekend. Second practice is next at 1800 GMT. Join us then.

With that the chequered flag drops.

Ericsson now a spinner. Turn 6. That area has proved to be tricky so far

Vettel locks up at the hairpin, catching the trailing Kvyat off guard. The Russian gesticulates, unhappy with what could have been a potential collision.

Ocon is the latest spinner, probably the last of the session as FP1 is nearing its end.

Verstappen flats spots a front tyre after he brakes heavily at Turn 1.

Alonso is all smiles has he talks to the marshals.

And has been customary this season, a McLaren conks off. It's Alonso who has stopped. He throws his headrest out in seeming disgust. Gets out of the car and acknowledges the cheering crowd.

With just over 30 mins to go, the two Spaniards are the only ones not to have set a time so far. Good thing Sainz and Alonso are friends. They can get a cuppa...

Just past the halfway mark and it's a Mercedes 1-2 followed by the Ferrari duo.

"Top seven times within one second in FP1 so far," observes Pirelli. "But plenty of track evolution to come."

A squirrel hops across the track at one of the corners. Here's hoping the Montreal wildlife escape unscathed this weekend.

Verstappen held up by Palmer, with the teen gesturing in the slipstream. The Red Bull driver isn't happy.

And now Vettel goes off at Turn 2. No harm done but Ferrari fighting the lack of grip too much?

Raikkonen spins at Turn 7. Lack of grip? The Ferrari stays clear of the barriers, turns it the right way and carries on.

Early troubles. Smoke billows from the rear of Sainz's Toro Rosso. He has parked it shortly after the hairpin. Yellow flags wave.

Alonso has returned to the fold, back from his Indy 500 foray.

Aero rakes on the Red Bull. Proper test going on.

And it begins. 90 mins of track time now available.

Good day, folks! Welcome to Grand Prix no.7 of the season from Notre Dame, Montreal.

As the championship progresses, it seems that things are getting better and better for Ferrari. Sebastian Vettel sits pretty at the top of the driver's standings, a good 25 points ahead of his nearest rival Lewis Hamilton, who lost quite some ground at Monte Carlo.

But this is one race the Silver Arrows would be desperate to dominate so as to jump back into reckoning as far as the championship is concerned, particularly Hamilton who has a great record at the track.

It starts with the all-important practice session commencing at 1400 GMT on Friday. Do join us then.
