'It was an interesting start': Lewis Hamilton on squeezing out Bottas

Sebastian Vettel and Charles Leclerc qualified third and fifth respectively for the Spanish Grand Prix on Saturday, with Scuderia Ferrari team principal Mattia Binotto admitting the Qualifying session was hard for the whole team.

Mercedes have sent their Formula One vehicle to the home of a terminally ill boy who Lewis Hamilton said inspired him to victory in Spain.

Wolff is not all that confident about the upcoming Monaco Grand Prix. "Remember how strong (Daniel) Ricciardo was past year in the Red Bull".

"We've not had the performance in Monaco in the last years", he said. They were in a league of their own.

"As parents to sit and have to watch your child die slowly in pain and discomfort is a memory we hope time will heal".

That street circuit challenge will be very different to all that has gone before, but rivals have already installed Mercedes as favourites and the drivers' championship as a two-man race. That is massively exciting for us to go there. I wish we could go there tomorrow. Everybody's working flat out to try to understand the auto for Monaco and really be strong there.

Unless Ferrari can engineer a remarkable comeback, Mercedes looks set to claim a sixth straight constructors' championship, a run that stretches back to the introduction of V6 turbo engines in 2014.

He said: "For now on this race there was absolutely no problems for me". I feel better and better in the vehicle so I look forward to tomorrow".

This achievement is wonderful for Mercedes, but does Wolff feel interest in F1 will dwindle with just one team dominating?

Hamilton has been repeatedly linked with a move to Ferrari across his career and said of a switch to Maranello in 2017: "It's definitely a dream for every driver, including me". I'm in a pretty clear position, because we're really trying to perform as well as we can.

"Then joining this team, again, and every year from then we've had to re-sign".

I saw the red vehicle of the Ferrari go around the back of us.

Binotto says the pace deficit to Mercedes has shown just where the weaknesses are on the SF90H, and he knows it will be up to them to overcome these issues and come back stronger in the upcoming races. "We will carry out all the necessary analysis, also after the race, to get a complete picture of where we are struggling".

"As a fan and as a spectator, I can relate to the sport needing to have a certain variability". But where we are, it can't be an objective for us.
