It's Vettel's fourth pole on the Ile Notre-Dame, and his first since 2013. From the number of red flags with the prancing pony logo, the Italian squad remains the clear favourite in the grandstands.
"I think they've waited long enough for Ferrari to do well here".
"Next week the World Cup is starting and I promise you that a lot of the games will not be exciting - but still people will watch it - but some games will be incredible". At some point I was saying 'OK when am I allowed to drive again?' I was looking down, changing something, then looking back.
"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.
"It's not like we are getting time enough to get bored in the auto", said Bottas.
Vettel's third victory this season lifted him to 121 points ahead of Hamilton on 120 after seven races, ending the defending four-time champion's hopes of a record-equalling seventh win at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve where he won from pole for the last three years.
Vettel had no such trouble, leaving the jostling behind him as he steered through the 4.36-kilometer track named for the Ferrari driver and Montreal native who earned his first Formula One victory here 40 years ago.
Pirelli has nominated its supersoft, ultrasoft and the new hypersoft tires for the race, the same combination used in the previous Monaco Grand Prix. "It's great when you have a session like that".

Hamilton, fourth at the time, headed into the pit lane on lap 16 of this 70-lap race, but the early change of tyres allowed Ricciardo to usurp the Mercedes vehicle.
Canadian model Winnie Harlow blamed race officials for telling her the wrong time to wave the flag. The Briton has won the last three on the track that seems to suit the Mercedes vehicle with its heavy braking after long straightaways and tight chicanes.
"We were briefly talking about what we wanted to do, trying to figure everything out". "But it showed in Monaco that we have a great vehicle".
When it comes to the twisty stuff, 11 of the 14 corners are taken below 100 miles per hour, which makes it particularly hard on the brakes and tires when the cars are coming from the high-speed straights.
Finn Kimi Raikkonen finished sixth in the second Ferrari.
"Fortunately I had a lap count in the auto, and the pit board was accurate", he said.
"I don't think the hypersoft is a good race tyre", the polesitter said.
"It was a bit different, it was a bit mixed today so I'm not entirely happy with the feel inside the vehicle yet".
