It is a fourth Canadian Prix Pole for Lewis Hamilton, edging out Rosberg by a hefty 0.3 seconds.

2' 

Raikkonen goes quicker than he has done previously, but he doesn't dip into the 1:14s and therefore doesn't bother Hamilton and Rosberg.

3' 

The two Lotuses are sent out from the garage at the same time and almost collide in the pit lane. Shocking!

4' 

Raikkonen, currently sitting in third, is told there is time and fuel for two more timed laps. Can he go quicker than the Mercedes pair?

7' 

Hamilton now on provisional pole. Rosberg, who sets the fastest middle section of the session, is a little cautious through the final chicane and goes second.

9' 

Maldonado, on a new set of tyres, goes second fastest, splitting Raikkonen and Hulkenberg. Hamilton sets his first time of Q3 and is good enough for fifth.

11' 

The Force India of Hulkenberg is out first, followed by Raikkonen. The teams are given one extra set of tyres for Q3 so it wouldn't come as a surprise to see a few just set one timed lap.

12' 

P3 is under way. Who will grab pole for the Canadian Grand Prix? Hamilton? Rosberg? Or could someone else upset the apple cart?

1' 

Red Bull's protege, Max Verstappen, is also out of this qualifying session after failing to improve upon his earlier time.

2' 

It's now or never for Alonso, and despite throwing it through the last corner and getting on the throttle midway through, his lap time is only good enough for 13th.

3' 

Maldonado and Perez have never made Q3 in Montreal, but their current lap times will see them buck that trend. Grosjean now goes third fastest.

5' 

An aggressive lap sees Maldonado go fifth fastest - 1.096s slower than Hamilton. Erikson is the slowest man out on track at the moment.

6' 

There's more smoke coming out of Maldonado's car going into the first turn than there is from the BBQ's in and around the Montreal track.

8' 

Prior to these qualifying session, Williams claimed they thought they could mix it with the Ferraris, and that's exactly what they've done as Bottas goes third quickest. Hamilton and Rosberg the two in front.

9' 

Hamilton leads the way once again. The current championship leader's first running lap is enough to usurp Raikkonen. Can Rosberg now push his team-mate?

12' 

Raikkonen, for the first time this season is going to out-qualify his team-mate, and sets the fastest time of this session with 1:15.6.

13' 

Niko Hulkenberg is now out on the track. A first podium for that man is surely going to come this season. Can he do it in Canada?

14' 

Vettel does not look a happy man, but the talk in the paddock is that it is a slight electronic problem affecting the German's MGUH. Nasr completes the final few turns of his timed lap to set first time of 1.17.01.

15' 

Q2 is under way. Whilst questions remain over what Ferrari can possibly do to salvage the Canadian Grand Prix, the first few cars make their way out on to the track in Montreal.

0' 

Sebastian Vettel, with a new power unit in his Ferrari, is out of qualifying having failed to improve upon his lap time. A huge upset for the Ferrari Scuderia team.

1' 

Massa is out of qualifying having struggled with his power unit. The Brazilian had been on his radio during that session to complain of his struggles.

2' 

Vettel, who has, since 2008, always been in top three in qualifying, is really struggling with his engine and takes a few chances before setting the 16th-fastest lap of Q1.

3' 

Sergio Perez sets a lap time but it's only good enough for 11th, which will keep him in it for now, though there are a large number of cars out on track.

4' 

Vettel appears, and it doesn't sound particularly clean, but he's out on the super softs and will have time to set a lap time, but will it be quick enough for him to advance into P2?

5' 

Maldonado is out on the track on the supersoft tyres, with Lotus obviously feeling they need to do a little extra. Vettel is still in the garage surrounded by a number of stressed engineers.

6' 

Hamilton takes his second adventure of the weekend through the chicane, but it isn't a running lap and the Mercedes driver pits. That certainly didn't look comfortable.

7' 

Alonso, currently with the 12th fastest lap, is out on track and has been told over the radio that it is very tight between P9 and P12, so "it is all to play for".

8' 

Sebastian Vettel has had a few issues with his Ferrari, and his team are frantically trying to fire it up. If they do run, they can run without the MGUH, but there will be a significant turbo lag.

9' 

Apologies about the delay, we've had some slight technical issues but we're back and pick up midway through Q1. Lewis Hamilton set the pace early on but his team-mate Nico Rosberg has since gone quicker.
