Bottas' finish of third place in the driver standings last season was also the lowest of the V6 turbo hybrid era for a Mercedes driver. "And they are in the front, so can you imagine at the back", he said. "It sounds odd that you can be happy with P19, but actually I'm happy". So I feel that if we understand that something is going wrong we should try to find a solution. At the start of Q3 I did a pretty good time on the supersoft, but for me I didn't think we could go quicker on that tyre, so I wanted to try the soft again.

Red Bull's Christian Horner has already blasted the "half baked" new front wing design meant to boost overtaking next year.

Asked by Autosport just how important the Barcelona pole was to him in light of his recent form, he said: "We've had one pole, we haven't really had great qualifying sessions after that, so it was important for me to get back into a good position with qualifying, as it is usually a strength of mine".
