It's tough to imagine that anyone other than Sebastian Vettel can take pole position here, or at any race this year, but if it could happen anywhere, Montreal could be the place. Already we've seen plenty of incidents through three free practice sessions and there could be more to come.

With an hour of qualifying ahead of us, what are we expecting to see? Who can get through to the third session of qualifying, and who will drop out early? The session begins at 6pm GMT+1 but the Factbyte Factbox will start half an hour earlier to provide plenty of build up.
