None of this was expected: Heikki Kovalainen on pole for the first time; Mark Webber back on the front row for the first time in four years; Felipe Massa delayed in the pits when the Ferrari mechanics had trouble changing a rear wheel.

Brit GP: moving home

Bernie Ecclestone may be 77, but he remains a player in the shrewdest sense. In one swift, silent move this morning, he wrecked what should have been the best weekend in the British Racing Drivers’ Club social diary. And he did it on their turf.

Montreal gossip
