Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton turned the fastest lap in opening practice for the Canadian GP with a time of 1m14.755 in what was largely a track cleaning session. Hamilton's teammate Nico Rosberg was 2nd at 1m15.086s ahead of the Ferrari of Sebastian Vettel who clocked in at 1m15.243s.

Max Verstappen and Kimi Raikkonen rounded out the top-5.

Hamilton always dominates Rosberg at this track and this year is no different. Whereas Hamilton set his fast lap on super soft tires, Rosberg could not beat him despite being on ultra soft Pirellis.
