McLaren's Lewis Hamilton clocked the fastest time in the qualifying session of the Canadian Grand Prix. The Briton will lead ahead of Poland’s Robert Kubica (BMW-Sauber), while Ferrari's world champion Kimi Raikkonen will start in third.
Polish driver Kubica, who suffered a horrific crash on the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve last year, looked to have grabbed pole with a late lap of one minute 18.498 only for Briton Hamilton to produce a blistering one minute 17.886 with his final effort.
Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen, the world champion, will start third on the grid with Renault's Spaniard Fernando Alonso alongside.
