Toto Wolff :
From the start of Q3 we had the tyres in the right window, the car was balanced, and everything came together well, with both George and Lewis getting more confident lap after lap. We haven’t been in the hunt for a win this season and we know how strong our competitors are so being on pole is a solid result for us and if we have the right pace in the race tomorrow, I wouldn’t rule out that we can be part of the front again and have a chance of winning. For Lewis, it was so tough – his DRS failed just at the crucial moment, otherwise he would have been fighting up there with George for pole position, no doubt.
