Hamilton gives no options at Montreal trials

The British Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes), current world champion, did not give his rivals options and this Friday he was the author of the best time in the first two free practice sessions for the Formula One Canadian Grand Prix, which takes place at the Gilles Villeneuve circuit, Montreal.
The three-time English champion, who set a time of 1: 14.755 on super-soft wheels in the first round, further improved his performance in the second by stopping the timer at 1: 14.212 this time with the ultra-soft tire compound from the range offered by the manufacturer Pirelli.
The Englishman, who is still on the hunt for the championship leader, his teammate, the German Nico Rosberg, who is separated by 24 points after achieving his first victory of the course at the Monaco Grand Prix, dominated both free sessions, played with an iron hand. with low temperatures.
If in the morning it was Rosberg who seconded him in the timesheets, in the afternoon it was also German Sebastian Vettel (Ferrari) who took second place.
The four-time world champion finished the second round at 257 thousandths of a second. Rosberg was third in the afternoon at 526. These three drivers were the only ones of the day who managed to lose 1:15 minutes.
Dutchman Max Verstappen was the best of the Red Bull Racing drivers in both sessions. The youngest ever winner of a F1 grand prix, he set the fourth best time in the two free sessions.
All the drivers posted their best times in the afternoon session on the ultrasoft tire compound.
The low temperatures in Montreal are not the ideal scenario to understand the correct operation of the tires, which need more heat to perform as expected.
This Saturday the third and last free session will be held (from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. GMT), which will lead to the qualifying session (from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. GMT).
