Earlier this year, Ferrari team boss Mattia Binotto said that Vettel would be given priority over Leclerc in the early part of the season, if certain situations warranted such a decision.

"Always to start you're a bit nervous, you don't know exactly where you are, you don't know what's going to happen".

"In the end we are racing for Ferrari and we will try to get Ferrari back to where we've been trying to get it back to for the past few years".

"We are immensely proud to announce this exciting partnership with the Formula 1 Australian Grand Prix, which shares numerous same values as St Hugo, a fine wine created to honour the love between a father and son to continue on his winemaking legacy", he said.

"For sure over the winter something has been different like with my coach again we looked through the travel plan and everything, all the details that we think is going to be best for my performance, like where I am between races, where do I fly, when do I fly". His team-mate Valtteri Bottas was forced to hand a race victory to the Briton in Russian Federation previous year at a crucial phase of the season. It wears and then you go away, you analyse where you've been. "Most of it is going to be up to me if I make it or not, and that's a good feeling".

"Our optimism is not unfounded", said Red Bull motorsport consultant Helmut Marko.

"As far as I'm concerned that's its permanent spot", he said. It has been the same every year. The driver, whose team will also score an extra point for the constructors' championship, must finish in the top 10.

Mercedes stars Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas came on stage with team chief Toto Wolf, with the British driver snapped taking pictures of the supporters gathered in Melbourne.

"I don't think it's hard to read it, I think it's quite clear", the Briton said on Thursday. "We have work to do".

"It will be interesting to see how the Red Bull upgrade works, and I know some other people, Ferrari usually bring an upgrade for the first race, so it'll be interesting to see". It's a long way.

"We have a really strong partnership with Formula 1".

But Vettel, who won in Australia last season after Mercedes made a strategy error that handed him the race, admitted that Ferrari were in a better position heading into this season than they were in 2018.

We'll have a better idea after Saturday qualifying and the opening race on Sunday.

"We had some issues with the vehicle to fix".
