MONTREAL: Fernando Alonso warned Sebastian Vettel that his run of good luck will come to an end sooner or later.
Two-time champion Spaniard Alonso of Ferrari told reporters in the paddock at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve ahead of this weekend’s Canadian Grand Prix that the Red Bull man had been lucky this season, but that will change.
“We have two points more now than last year and we were leading the championship last year at this time,” he said. “So in a way, we
are doing better than last year.
“But, what is a little bit out at the moment are the points that Sebastian has scored in these six races. Unlucky races will come to everyone and will come to him as well. It came to Kimi [Raikkonen] in Monaco with the accident and we are only five points behind him.
“So, it will come to Sebastian and we need to maximise.”
Hamilton ignores furore to focus on form
Lewis Hamilton said he had ignored the controversy about the Mercedes ‘Tyregate’ scandal because he is more concerned about feeling at one with his car in this weekend’s Canadian Grand Prix.
Hamilton, however, said he has put it all out of his mind.
“I haven’t been focusing on it, to be honest … I’ve been focusing on trying to get myself ready for this Grand Prix,” he said.
Di Resta fastest in Canadian GP practice
Britain’s Paul Di Resta unleashed a flying lap in the final seconds of the first practice session to top the times ahead of this weekend’s Canadian Grand Prix.
With the track drying out after a morning rain shower, the Scotsman saved his best for last, guiding his Force India car around the treacherous Montreal street circuit in a time of one minute 21.020 seconds.
Britain’s Jenson Button, who won the race two years ago, was second fastest overall in his McLaren, ahead of Romain Grosjean and Alonso
