A similar situation occured in Bahrain - only for an engine failure to hault Leclerc's chances of a maiden Formula 1 victory. Sebastian Vettel crossed the line in first-place in Canada, but was penalised with a five-second penalty for rejoining the track dangerously.
Wolff was asked by RaceFans whether he was shocked at Red Bull winning a race before Ferrari this season, and replied with: "I think Ferrari was really unfortunate this season.
"They could have won three times already. The Red Bull was the quickest car on-track (in Austria). You never saw our performance because we were racing with a hand tied behind our back but between Ferrari and Red Bull-Honda, today the Honda was the benchmark.
"I don't think (Ferrari's tyre strategy was a mistake) because at the end they had only a few laps left on the hard tyre. I think that the tyre degradation was still a topic for them and we have to not over-analyse it. I think the combination between Max, the Red Bull chassis and the Honda engine was the best package."
