1917: Some straw-clutching going on among McLaren fans saying the car may be set up for a wet-weather race. But 1) we don't know if that's the case and 2) rain is no more than a possibility for Sunday. Red Bull's Christian Horner says their cars' downforce is set to cover both stools. Anyway, you're bound to get more sense out of Andrew Benson's report. Cheerio. I'll be back tomorrow at about 1630 BST, ahead of an 1800 race start.

From 'Fake Whitmarsh': "That's it, I'm taking up curling."

From BBC Sport's Amanda Davies: "Groundhog day in the land of the groundhogs. Vettel on pole in Canada. More reactions and race build-up - #InsideF1, BBC News, 7.45pm."

Sebastian Vettel on Red Bull's team radio: "Thank you, thank you. Thanks for fixing the car on Friday after I stuffed it into the wall."

Virgin's Timo Glock (grid position 22) on BBC One: "We gambled a bit with the set-up because on Thursday and Friday it was clear it would be slightly wet over the weekend and so we put the maximum downforce on car. However the weather changed and it looks like it will be dry and that's cost us quite a bit of top speed."

1903: Top 10 like this - Vettel, Alonso, Massa, Webber, Hamilton, Rosberg, Button, Schumacher, Heidfeld, Petrov.

Chequered flag
1900: And in the final few seconds, Alonso grabs second off his Ferrari team-mate, while Button finishes in a lowly seventh place, two behind his team-mate Lewis Hamilton. It just hasn't happened for McLaren. And Vettel, inevitably, is on pole.

1858: Michael Schumacher is going very slowly. We're not quite sure whether he's got a problem but at the moment he looks booked for 10th.

1855: Massa is second best for now, Alonso third. Webber is fourth and the two McLarens are behind that leading quartet. Not brilliant for them.

1854: Vettel does the quickest lap of the weekend, a 1:13.014 - that could be pole already. Or he looks likely to be the man to get it at least.

1852: One out-lap, two flying laps and one in-lap is the formula, and everyone is on super softs... I think.

Force India's Paul di Resta (will start 11th): "Since we started at the weekend, the car's been working well. The track is all about commitment. It seemed to appeal to me quickly and I'm looking quite promising for the race."

1850: The 10-minute top-10 shoot out is under way.

From Andy Gibson: "OK Rubens, it's time to accept the inevitable. Outqualified by Maldonado again. Go get your pipe and slippers."

1845: Grid positions 11 to 17 as follows: Di Resta, Maldonado, Kobayashi, Sutil, Buemi, Barrichello, De La Rosa.

Chequered flag
1842: Down comes the flag - no late drama really, a bit of shuffling of grid positions from the bottom seven but none could break into the top-10.

1841: We're in the final minute of Q2.

BBC F1 co-commentator David Coulthard: "I expected Mercedes to be right up there and in amongst the top times - they did show a little more pace in practice. But this isn't about delivering the fastest lap possible, it's about getting through to the next session."
Mercedes sixth and eighth at the moment.

BBC Radio 5 Live F1 summariser Karun Chandhok: "Sebastian Vettel is one of those drivers who gets to Q3 and goes out and bang, it's there. It's so horrendously impressive. He produces a well-driven well hooked-up lap in a car that's the pick of the bunch."

1837: Looks like we'll lose the Saubers, the Williams, the Force Indias and the one remaining Toro Rosso - as things stand.

1836: Felipe Massa shaves a few hundreths off Vettel's time. Good show from the Brazilian.

1835: Rubens Barrichello's seven-year hold on the Montreal lap record ends as Sebastian Vettel goes round in a new top time of 1:13.486.

1833: Here comes Mark Webber with a quick one, but you feel someone will squeeze past him in a bit. Paul di Resta is in the top 10 at the moment, while Felipe Massa is the only driver in the remaining 17 yet to set a time.

Ferrari team on Twitter: "Fernando is firing up his car now: he is on super softs."

BBC F1 chief analyst Eddie Jordan on Toro Rosso's Jaime Alguersuari: "He has talent but is he quick enough? Will he be a replacement for Vettel - you have to say that's unlikely. So they need to say 'let's try the next one up'. Jaime's had a chance but hasn't been good enough to go into the main team. They have to find someone soon to replace Mark Webber and that's the main focus. Sympathy plays no role and you have to deliver, it's no different in this case. Alguersuari just isn't quick enough in that car."

1828: Q2 is under way, and this lasts 15 minutes.

1825: We may well see only 23 drivers starting tomorrow assuming the stewards apply the letter of the law and prevent Jerome d'Ambrosio from entering the race proper. He was outside the 107% rule (107% of the fastest time).

Renault team on Twitter: "We managed to pass Q1 without using the supersoft."

Chequered flag
1823: Jarno Trulli out-qualifies Heikki Kovalainen for the first time this year, but both Lotus men are in the drop zone and won't appear in Q2. They are joined by the two Virgins and the two Hispanias, so too Jaime Alguersuari, the Spaniard in the Toro Rosso agonisingly close to making the cut, but no cigar for him.

1819: Hispania's Narain Karthikeyan is now within the 107% cut-off, but Virgin's Jerome d'Ambrosio is not.

1817: Alguersuari, who has complained of under-steer, keeps on locking up his brakes and making little errors - and that all adds up to leave him in the relegation zone. Actually hang on, he's OK, or might be. He's clinging on to 17th place at the moment.

1816: Alonso is getting very close to the lap record set by Rubens Barrichello in 2004 with a three-litre engine. About two-tenths of a second away, in fact. He remains fastest, and it's good news all round for Ferrari with Massa third quickest.

1813: Alonso is the first driver to go under 1min 14secs, and that leaves two drivers out on the 107% rule, unless they can pull something out of the bag. Those men in danger are Karthikeyan and D'Ambrosio.

1811: Pedro de la Rosa appears to be one of the first drivers to switch to the faster option tyre, and immediately scrapes them twice against a wall. That won't do his cause any good at all.

1810: Hamilton and Button are fourth and fifth behind Massa, and Vettel has very nearly got himself under 1min 14secs already.

1809: Two drivers have already gone below 1min 15secs. They are Sebastian Vettel and Fernando Alonso - and I wouldn't be at all surprised if they line up one and two on the grid on Sunday. Vettel is more than half a second faster than Alonso.

1807: Jamie Alguersuari locks up his brakes and flat-spots his tyres. Not ideal for the Toro Rosso man, who briefly came off the track (without damaging his car) in the last period of practice.

1805: We hear Mark Webber's Red Bull is fixed, with Kers working. The Australian driver missed the whole of the final practice session, so will surely be itching to prove a point now.

From Chris Jones, Leicester: "I noticed that the wall of champions has been replaced by a tyre barrier, obviously for saftey reasons. But what happend to the wall? Surely it should be in a museum somewhere, I know it would look nice in my garden."

1800: The pit lane is open, we've got 20 minutes to lose the seven slowest cars.

McLaren team principal Martin Whitmarsh: "I wouldn't mind if it did rain, actually, because I'm afraid it doesn't look as though we have the top speed we hoped to have here. Unfortunately it looks as though it's going to stay dry."

1758: We're hearing that the showers are scheduled to arrive shortly after qualifying finishes. Of course, if that forecast is wrong by a few minutes we could have plenty of fun and games in the Q3 top-10 shoot-out.

1755: And suddenly, we're just five minutes away from Q1...

From Andy Gibson: "What were Sauber thinking not having a proper reserve in place considering the Perez situation? Idiotic."
It does indeed seem bizarre that one race after Sergio Perez's spectacular crash in Monaco, Sauber's reserve driver was not brought out to Monaco.

BBC F1 chief analyst Eddie Jordan: "You've got to allow drivers to have their own personality. Lewis Hamilton gives me that little buzz because he always does something electric."

BBC Sport's Andrew Benson in Montreal: "I've had a quick scout of the paddock as the tension builds ahead of qualifying and I bumped into former Ferrari driver Jean Alesi. He's a lovely guy and he leaned over while he was preparing for an Italian TV interview for a quick handshake - firm, solid - and 'ca va?' The Frenchman won his only grand prix here in 1995 - an emotional day for him as well as the Canadian fans, who have adored Ferrari ever since the days of the national hero Gilles Villeneuve, after whom the track was named following his death in a horrific crash at the 1982 Belgian Grand Prix."

1744: Sauber's Sergio Perez has withdrawn from this GP after slight worries over his health following his big crash at Monaco a fortnight ago. Speaking before his decision not to race yesterday, he spoke to BBC F1 pit-lane reporter Lee McKenzie, reflecting on Monaco. "It was a big shunt. I was very lucky and I think Monaco is very dangerous. But that is also why Monaco is so special and I don't think there's much you can do. We all love Monaco."

From Mark Grieve: "Eddie Jordan on #BBCF1 coverage wearing the kind of polka dot shirt I once was proud of... Twenty years ago!"

BBC Sport's Andrew Benson in Montreal: "The long-running saga over the Bahrain Grand Prix is finally coming to an end. The key thing to know is the bottom line, which is that the race will not happen this year. But an interesting twist emerged on Friday, when governing body the FIA revealed in a statement that Bernie Ecclestone had only the day before - ie, two days after the teams had said they were not going - given them a calendar with Bahrain on yet another new date, at the end of the season on 4 December. Quite why remains unclear. The following day the Bahrain organisers fell on their sword and Ecclestone submitted another calendar with Bahrain removed. India will be back in its original date of 30 October."

1733: BBC One are reflecting on the decision, finally, to axe Bahrain from the schedule, and amid some wailing engine noise, they've collared Ferrari's team principal, Stefano Domenicali for a comment. The Italian says: "We need to learn from this lesson to have a better comunication to consider the things that are going on around the world, but it's improtant that people do not use these things for their own private agendas." Domenicali also expects "a very challenging weekend" in Montreal.

From Shampayne, via text message: "Surely Ferrari can spoil the Red Bull front row party today! Hopefully, at least, both of them in front of the McLarens."

1725: The awesome truth is this. Vettel is currently on five wins from six races. Michael Schumacher's record for one season [2004] is 13. Is that mark under threat in 2011? I think it might be.

BBC F1 co-commentator David Coulthard talks through Sebastian Vettel's crash on Friday: "He slides the rear initially, and then gets it up high on the kerb. But as in Turkey he sems to make his mistakes on Friday, when he's got plenty of time to recover, and as we can see he's the quickest driver at the moment.

BBC F1 presenter Jake Humphrey: "The clouds are looking more and more ominous with every passing second."

1715: And we are live on BBC One, qualifying coming up at 1800. Get involved with the tweets and texts. I'm counting on you.

From Pedro: "If the McLarens don't dominate in a track which looks like it was bespoke made for them, their season is pretty much wrapped up."

1710: Andrew also reports news that will be of interest to fans of Eddie Jordan's shirt selection. The great man has gone for "dark blue with fat white polka dots". And I also have a weather update: still cloudy, not looking like rain yet.

BBC Sport's Andrew Benson in Montreal: "The battle for pole will be as intense as ever in Canada this afternoon, but actually it is one of the tracks where it is least crucial. Overtaking has always been a feature of races here, and all the drivers expect there to be even more this year with the rapidly degrading Pirelli tyres and the DRS overtaking aid. Lewis Hamilton said: 'The great thing here is that you see quite a lot of overtaking here, we have the great long straight coming out of the corners, the DRS will allow us to get closer. It will make the racing even better'."

From Joseph Bayliss: "Don't think pole is going to be all that important today, all about tyres. Hope McLaren do well though I suspect Vettel for pole."

1701: I've been reading an interesting double-page spread in today's Daily Telegraph sports tabloid, entitled Hamilton must grow up if he wants to become a legend. In it, reporter Tom Cary concludes: "Hamilton remains a work in progress; still electrifyingly quick, still a little raw both on and off the track. By some distance the most compelling driver out there." Only sixth fastest in final free practice on a circuit he likes, can Hamilton pull out his first pole position from what has been a difficult season for the 2008 champion?

1700: Oh, hello again!

1610: OK, I'll leave you now with Andrew Benson's report from the final practice session, and I'll be back at 1700, to give us a full one hour lead-up into qualifying. See you then.

BBC F1 pit-lane reporter Lee McKenzie: "You can see an interview with Sergio Perez in today's show. I spoke to the Mexican on Thursday before he had driven the car and he had no idea he would have to withdraw from the event. At that time he said he had no side affects from the heavy crash in Monaco apart from some pain in his right leg. 'Checo' watched the crash back and talks us through what was happening inside the car. It is a real shame he is unable to take part but safety is paramount and Friday showed this is another unforgiving circuit with a very fine line between success and ending up in the wall. You can see the feature in the pre-qualifying show, which starts at 1715 BST."

1601: It looked like de la Rosa just lost control and started spinning, with his rear end taking a hit. The driver's fine but there will be work to do by the Sauber team on that car ahead of qualifying. Webber did not get out on the track at all, while Alonso was second quickest, Rosberg third, Massa fourth, then the McLarens next, with Schumacher seventh.

Someone has crashed
Chequered flag
1600: Vettel does indeed top the timings... but hang on - Pedro de la Rosa has gone sideways exiting turn three. Crunch.

1559: Sebastian Vettel's Red Bull is not supposed to be well suited to this track, but look what's happened. He's gone top of the timings with a 1:13.381. There might be a sinking feeling across every other team right now.

BBC F1 pit-lane reporter Ted Kravitz: "Just a thought on race pace. Lewis yesterday was just as quick if not a little bit quicker than Sebastian Vettel on the harder tyres. Of course we don't know the situation with fuel loads, but McLaren believe they have the edge on race pace over Red Bull."

Sebastien Buemi, down in 13th, on the Toro Rosso team radio: "We are doing something wrong with the tyre pressure - as soon as I push a bit more the car is all over the place."

1552: Our new fastest driver is Alonso, on 1:13.701. It's increasingly looking like we won't see Webber until qualifying now. Timo Glock just got perilously close to the Wall of Champions that claimed Sebastian Vettel on Friday.

1550: With 10 minutes to go, Fernando Alonso matches Nico Rosberg's fastest lap to within the same 1,000th of a second. Felipe Massa is third fastest, from Vettel, Hamilton, Button and Schumacher.

1548: No crashes or incidents of any type to report really. Jaime Alguersuari went a bit wide at a corner just now and took in a bit of a gravel and grass, but that's the best drama I can provide.

1543: For whatever reason, Rosberg's Mercedes team-mate Michael Schumacher is more than a second slower than his fellow German with the seventh best time of the session. The five drivers in between them, in order of fastest to slowest, are Vettel, Alonso, Hamilton, Massa and Button.

BBC Radio 5 Live commentator David Croft: "This is a track that should suit Mercedes. It certainly suits their engines, as we can see from McLaren's performance as well, but the Mercedes DRS is very effective, and that's what is helping them get the speed this weekend."

BBC F1 pit-lane reporter Jennie Gow: "I can't count the number of pieces Mark Webber's car is in - there are bits everywhere, it's probably four pieces. A couple of guys are working furiously at the back of the car, everyone else to be honest seems to be having a chat and there is no great sense of urgency. Whatever the problem only two people seem to be able to fix it and Webber is nowhere to be seen."

1536: Small batteries or not, Webber is still in the garage. There's barely 20 minutes left of final free practice. I can only assume the Australian is stewing.

BBC Sport's Andrew Benson in Montreal: "In the light of Mark Webber's Kers problems - the latest in a long line for Red Bull this season - an interesting fact has emerged about Red Bull's system this weekend. Its power output is only two-thirds of the possible maximum - 40kw rather than 60kw - as a result of the smaller batteries required because of technical guru Adrian Newey's refusal to compromise the car for it. Newey admitted when I spoke to him on Friday that this was 'sub-optimal'. But what the team lose in pace from the Kers they gain from not compromising other performance areas, such as aerodynamics. That does mean they could be vulnerable on the straights, although team boss Christian Horner did point out that Sebastian Vettel had successfully defended his lead at the last two races."

From Richard Leverton: "The drivers pull five times the force of gravity under braking... Astonishing. Must be like being hit by a brick wall every lap..."

BBC Radio 5 Live commentator David Croft: "I know DRS is effective here, but to get into the 1.13s already... The pole time last year, set by Lewis Hamilton, was 1.15.1, and already we're one and a half seconds faster. That's genuinely awesome."

1532: Nico Rosberg is looking to be a threat. The latest of the 11 laps completed by the flying Mercedes man brings up a 1:13.919, so that puts him back at the top of the tree.

BBC F1 pit-lane reporter Lee McKenzie: "I caught up with a very happy Pedro de la Rosa after his surprise call-up for second practice and the rest of the race weekend following the withdrawal of Sauber's Sergio Perez. De la Rosa, who is actually McLaren's reserve driver, was saying he was told only 10 minutes before the session started and that's why he was wearing McLaren boots, race suit and had branding on his helmet.The former Sauber driver was able to use his old seat, which he said made it possible for him to go out yesterday afternoon. One thing he is concerned about is his lack of pit-stop practice and also managing all the new buttons on the steering wheel, along with DRS, which is new to F1 this year.' "

1530: How about our super-sub Pedro de la Rosa? The Sauber stand-in is holding his own, with the 14th-best time so far.

1528: All change at the top of the timings, with Vettel at the top, from Rosberg in second. Massa is third, Alonso fourth and Button fifth. Mark Webber is still in his garage. Lewis Hamilton is about to go for a quick lap or two.

BBC 5 live analyst Maurice Hamilton: "The question this morning is where are we with the soft tyres, which here in Canada are Pirelli's 'super soft' tyres. Particularly, how long is it going to last? As ever here in Montreal the track is changing all the time, it's a street circuit in all but name and doesn't rubber in that quickly."

1524: Button does go faster than Rosberg now. He's the first driver of the weekend to go sub-1.15secs, at 1:14.942. Vettel has the third fastest time.

1521: Jenson Button is on a quickish lap - can he go faster than Rosberg? No he can't. The McLaren man is the second fastest so far.

From Calum, via text: "They can add DRS and other gimmicks if they must, so long as they keep the noisy V8 engines - that's what F1 is all about!"

1518: Any quick laps yet? Yes, indeed. Nico Rosberg of Mercedes, the fastest driver in Friday's first practice session, has produced a 1:15.034. Kamui Kobayashi appears to be showing no ill effects from his crash yesterday and is the second quickest man today.

BBC Sport's Andrew Benson in Montreal: "There's a little bit of confusion surrounding Mark Webber's future at Red Bull this weekend. The Australian is a on a one-year contract and team boss Christian Horner has said that Webber has 'made it clear he wants to stay with the team' who 'just wanted to see whether he has still got the motivation and desire that he clearly has'. But Webber told BBC F1 pit-lane reporter Ted Kravitz on Friday: "We'll see how we go. There's a bit to go yet in the summer. Keep thinking." No one's quite sure what that slight disconnect might mean. Webber was also some way off team-mate Sebastian Vettel's pace on Friday, admitting he was 'not quite quick enough yet'."

BBC 5 pit-lane reporter Jennie Gow: "Mark Webber's nowhere to be seen and the Red Bull mechanics are working furiously on his car. We are told it's a Kers battery problem and they are looking into it now."
Confirmation that Webber is the only driver not to go out yet, while the most active cars are the two Mercedes having put in eight laps between them.

BBC Sport's Andrew Benson in Montreal: "As usual Friday practice saw a lot of cars running wide at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve's tricky chicanes, four of them leading to serious damage. Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel, Force India's Adrian Sutil, Sauber's Kamui Kobayashi and Virgin's Jerome D'Ambrosio all smashed up their cars against the unforgiving walls, with three red flags enforced to clear the debris. Lewis Hamilton expressed his surprise that so many had got it wrong, but Fernando Alonso had a simple explanation: 'We push a little bit more. At the end of the session you put on the super-soft tyres, you try to be a little bit close to the walls and take a little bit more kerbs. This is Canada, so any little mistake puts you in the wall. The combination of the old Pirelli which is not easy to drive when they degrade plus the Canada circuit is a good combination for you guys to watch and a little bit more risky for us'."

1507: Still no installation lap for Michael Schumacher or Mark Webber, everyone else has been round at least once.

BBC Radio 5 Live F1 commentator David Croft: "I've heard that Sauber's reserve/test driver Esteban Gutierrez, who is still a teenager, was unavailable to step in for Sergio Perez because he was actually back home sitting a history exam. That could be just a story, but if it is, it's a good one."

1505: Ferrari's Fernando Alonso is not one of the drivers currently out testing their set-ups. In fact, he's sitting down having a whistle to himself. He was the fastest driver in yesterday's second session.

1501: Just a few seconds into final free practice, and plenty of cars are out there already. Lewis Hamilton is still having his tyres warmed up, however.

1458: The pit lane opens in two minutes. Plenty of drivers, including Pedro de la Rosa who is stepping in for the unwell Sergio Perez at Sauber, are sitting in their cockpits ready to go.

BBC Sport's Andrew Benson in Montreal: "McLaren arrived in Montreal with many expecting them to give Red Bull their toughest challenge yet this year and the team showed some encouraging pace in Friday practice on their long runs. McLaren team principal Martin Whitmarsh says: 'The last two races we've had the quickest race car so to come away not having won is quite frustrating. This is quite a different kind of circuit. After Friday practice you try to analyse what's gone on and the two stand-out runs were Sebastian [Vettel] on I assume heavy fuel on the prime tyre and Lewis [Hamilton] on heavy fuel on the option tyre. They were matching each other on those runs and that is quite impressive from both of them. You sense we can be competitive here but the powerful DRS on the Mercedes - they could be strong. And Ferrari have come here with a low downforce setting'."

1454: Cooler than Friday it might be, but the patrons taking their places in the stands as I type are generally clad in t-shirts, shorts and shades. There are hats and sunscreen to hand as well. The cloud is dispersing and the sun's peeping out in places. Showers look a long way off at the moment.

BBC 5 live analyst Maurice Hamilton: "FP3 is going to be interesting. Track temp is 23C, much cooler than yesterday. Most drivers have low-fuel running to do on the super soft."

1445: According to one forecast I have just looked at, there is a 70% chance of rain this afternoon in Montreal, reduced to a 40% chance on race day. If we happen to catch a thunderstorm on Sunday or during qualifying today could get very spicy indeed. The drivers are aware of the situation. Mark Webber gave an interview yesterday saying: "There's some weather about." Being pedantic, that doesn't make sense, but you know what he means.

1440: So, while Andrew Benson ferrets about for information track-side, I'm joined at Television Centre by Richard Rae and Jon Barbuti today. We could do with some intelligent tweets and text messages from you too. Otherwise we'll feel we're talking to ourselves. Text on 81111, tweet using the hashtag #bbcf1. Cheers.

BBC Sport's Andrew Benson in Montreal: "Hello from a Circuit Gilles Villeneuve that does not look quite as picture-perfect as it did on Friday. Blue skies have been replaced with cloud cover - of the white variety for now - and there is a forecast of rain at some point during the day. But the questions remain the same. Can McLaren and Ferrari - and perhaps even Mercedes - challenge Red Bull for pole position on Saturday, and then for race victory on Sunday? The final practice session will provide some clues."

1430: Friday provided so much footage of twisted metal it was hard to tell whether we had stumbled upon an advertisement for a car insurance firm or were instead watching the first two practice sessions of the Canadian Grand Prix. There's a simple message today as we await final free practice at 1500 BST, ahead of qualifying at 1800: stay away from the walls. The trouble is, there are no prizes for driving slowly and carefully in F1.
