“I think with one and three, it’s the version that we would have opted for, because it’s on the cleaner line – there are no support races here,” the Austrian said.

“We did good work over the weekend. Valtteri was happier with the car yesterday, but it wasn’t in a sweet spot for him [today].
“And the opposite was true for Lewis, who wasn’t particularly satisfied yesterday, but had a great car in qualifying.”
However, the Austrian is not getting carried away by his team’s performance on Saturday.
“[Red Bull] did a great straight-line speed today, by the way, with a big wing, so they also found some performance.
“We just need to finish good tomorrow to score some points and get some back, and then maybe go to Abu Dhabi, and whoever wins, wins the World Championship,” concluded Mercedes’ team boss.
