Lewis Hamilton started as he means to go on in Montreal by topping the first free practice session on Friday morning ahead of Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg and Lotus driver Romain Grosjean.

The Canadian Grand Prix has been a happy hunting ground for Hamilton throughout his F1 career, given that he has never finished off the podium when seeing the checkered flag.

The Briton will be hoping to send out another warning shot to the rest of the field in the second free practice session in Montreal on Friday, which kicks off at 2pm ET.

Mercedes’ dominance in FP1 was clear as Romain Grosjean finished some 1.5 seconds down on the Silver Arrows in third place. Ferrari does appear to be leading the way for the final podium position, but with a 60% chance of a safety car, the Italian marque could yet spring a surprise in Canada this weekend.

However, with engine power being so important around the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, it comes as little surprise that the Mercedes-powered cars are running strongly. Six of the top ten in FP1 were powered by the German marque, and a repeat result may be on the cards for FP2.
