Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff says Red Bull was faster than Mercedes in Eifel Grand Prix qualifying and praises Hamilton and Bottas.

Although Max Verstappen was very strong throughout the session, in the end Valtteri Bottas and Lewis Hamilton managed to qualify in front of the Red Bull driver.

“We sh*t our pants in the pits,“ Toto Wolff told ORF after the session.

“How we got out of that last lap was an incredible achievement. The fact that we start in first and second place, even before Red Bull Racing, which was actually faster this session, is unbelievable.

Wolff also gave his comment on the fact that Bottas managed to qualify in front of his team-mate Lewis Hamilton.

“Valtteri simply warms up the tyres better when it is so cold or when the asphalt is very slippery.

“That was shown again today,” concluded Wolff.
