“We knew we had a strong car,” Wolff told Sky Sports after qualifying.
“We didn’t know if there would be a surprise from Red Bull, we are always vigilant. They took a risk to go for another strategy, knowing that the temperature would be different.
“Maybe they took that risk because they knew they were going to be short on speed.”
Wolff went on to praise Valtteri Bottas for his amazing result.
“It’s so good to come back. Everything came together today which is also a good indication for the season.
“This is a circuit that suits [Valtteri}. He’s done a good job.”
