"Tell them not to wave the flag when it's not done", the Ferrari driver said over the radio.

"I was quite happy with my first run in Q3 but I knew there was something more in the vehicle for the first part of the lap", Vettel continued.

With the victory, Vettel took a one-point lead over Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton in the Formula One standings.

The Scuderia Ferrari driver secured the Italian team's first pole position around the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve since Michael Schumacher in 2001, with Vettel putting in an incredible lap time in an intense qualifying session.

"Pole position is always important", said Vettel.

"I think his charisma, the character he brought to Formula One and racing in general, is still alive today". Vettel's lone pit stop on the 38th of 70 laps saw him emerge with a six-second lead.

Daniel Ricciardo, a victor two weeks ago in Monaco in another race panned for being tiresome, brought his Red Bull in third, just ahead of defending champion Lewis Hamilton's Mercedes.

Valtteri Bottas of Mercedes was second followed by the Red Bulls' Max Verstappen and Daniel Riciardo, the victor two weeks ago in Monaco.

Cuba said it sent investigators to the home who found no potential source of a sound and were not granted access to the official. A State Department official said Friday that the two individuals may be new cases, but it has not been "medically confirmed".

Mercedes were never in the victory equation, having not got engine updates ready in time for the race while Ferrari and Red Bull both had new parts. It was the same for Bottas running behind Vettel.

Daniel Ricciardo was in P4 after keeping Hamilton off his tail. "We need to keep applying the pressure, we didn't this weekend but I'm really going to make sure we come back stronger at the next race".

"Their vehicle is fantastic and the engine, too".

German Nico Hulkenberg came home seventh ahead of his Renault team-mate Spaniard Carlos Sainz, Frenchman Esteban Ocon of Force India and Monegasque Charles Leclerc of Sauber.

Starting cleanly, Vettel was pulling away from the field when a crash between Brandon Hartley and hometown favorite Lance Stroll brought out the safety vehicle in the very first lap.

Congratulations also to Romain Grosjean who had a much better race than qualifying, and took the time to mock himself a little following his clash with a groundhog during free practice. Both cars were badly damaged but the drivers escaped uninjured. "I was 13th after the first two turns".

Lance Stroll of Montreal, the first Canadian to race in F1 since Jacques Villeneuve left in 2006, qualified 17th as his Williams team's struggles continued. He earned his first Formula One points with a ninth-place finish at Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve past year.

"I don't think the Hypersoft is a good race tyre", the four-time world champion stated to Autosport.
