The threat of rain held off for qualifying, giving us the usual result of Sebastian Vettel on pole. So far today in Montreal, things have taken a turn for the damp, and that could certainly make the race very interesting.

With both Ferrari drivers showing improved pace, and a big question mark over which setup McLaren have gone for, the order could be mixed up. You can never discount the appearance of a safety car or two around the Canada circuit, either.

The race will begin at 6pm GMT+1, with the Factbyte Factbox starting an hour earlier to provide some fabulous buildup.
