F1 Focus with GIVEMEBET - Austrian GP

Wolff Hamilton critics should realise he maybe the best driver ever

"They seem very, very quick", said the 21-year-old Monegasque when asked whether Ferrari could give Mercedes a tougher time at the Red Bull Ring.

"The auto felt awesome, in FP1 (first practice) I struggled a little bit but in FP2 we made some changes and it was quite good", Leclerc said.

"You've got (FIA President) Jean Todt who, I know Jean is level, but the fact is he's been with the red team for so long surely when he wakes up there's a red T-shirt and there's a silver T-shirt he probably goes for a red one, you know what I mean?"

The summer break in Formula One is usually when rumours regarding where drivers will be for the next season begin. "Tomorrow the start will be very important".

"If they don't run into issues, it's a struggle for us to challenge them".

The 34-year-old took his 79th race victory this season at last Sunday's French Grand Prix, leaving him only 12 wins away from equalling the all-time record of Schumacher, who has not been seen in public since December 2013 when he suffered a serious head injury in a skiing accident in the French Alps. An engine problem prevented him from starting a lap in the shootout for pole, and the German, already 76 points Hamilton in the championship standings, will start a lowly ninth.

Mercedes, victor of the past five F1 constructors' titles, has extended its lead over second-placed Ferrari by 140 points in the standings after winning all eight races this season.

"Charles, congratulations to him, he has been quick all weekend and we've not been able to keep up with him", Hamilton said.

Mercedes also have the option of promoting George Russell to team up with Hamilton if they opt to move on from Bottas. And then there's radios, and for sure every team is telling which drivers are going fast or not.

There was some confusion over whether Hamilton would start fifth or fourth on the grid, with confirmation coming late in the day from F1 that it would be fourth despite Mercedes initially believing it would be fifth. "I think we have a strong auto and now we need to look at what we can do with the strategy".

The two drivers and team representatives were called to speak to the stewards after qualifying, and video evidence was reviewed.

Here, he got the very best out of his McLaren to qualify sixth, before he was bumped up two spots after Hamilton's punishment and a five-place grid drop for Kevin Magnussen following a gearbox change on his Haas.
