Possible reasons for excitement are the fact that Red Bull has had a small gap to Mercedes the whole weekend, while Charles Leclerc managed to qualify in P5 on Ferrari’s home track, amid the team’s 1000th Grand Prix celebration.
“We have all the ingredients for an exciting race tomorrow, with both Red Bulls behind us and it’s also great to see Ferrari in their 1,000th Grand Prix with a car up in P5,” Wolff said.
“We’re flying a little bit blind for the race, with it being a brand-new track for F1. Our long runs in practice actually weren’t that long so there are still some unknowns.
“We’ll have to see how the tyres last and whether it will be a one or a two-stop, but there are a few strategic options and it will be interesting to see how it all plays out.
“I’m really looking forward to a good race tomorrow,” concluded the Austrian.
