Valtteri Bottas crashes during F1 qualifying in Australia

The reigning champion had pitted earlier in the race and found himself in control, but Romain Grosjean forced a VSC to come into play - presenting an opportunity for Vettel.

While many expect Hamilton to race off in the distance tomorrow, Wolff stressed that the British driver would be on his own at the outset given the absence at the front of team mate Valtteri Bottas.

Unfortunately, we just couldn't make anything out of it because it is so hard to overtake on this track.

"We thought we had about a three-second margin, so we need to ask the computers - and that is what we are doing at the moment", Mercedes motorsport boss Toto Wolff told Sky.

"The gap that we needed was wrongly calculated by the systems".

"We need to learn from this weekend and try again in two weeks in Bahrain".

'I think the problem is within our systems.

"I think the way the algorithm is set up, the way the computer is being programmed, we always had the green light and the gap was enough for us to stay ahead".

"Lewis was attacking flat out but you can see the overtaking is pretty bad here", he said. Even the mega overtakers couldn't make a pass. Lewis had to give up because the tyres wouldn't have made it to the end'. The situation arose because the track marshals had to retrieve Romain Grosjean's stricken Haas auto.

Hamilton led the inquest over the team radio, in which Mercedes replied: 'We thought we were safe, but there was obviously something wrong'.

Meanwhile, the Red Bull pair of Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo was fourth and fifth quickest respectively in the intense qualifying round.

The Silver Arrows finished in second and eighth in the first race of the season - a disappointing result considering Lewis Hamilton started on pole position, while team-mate Valtteri Bottas would have likely been with him were it not for his crash in qualifying, with that and the subsequent gearbox penalty leaving him to start in fifteenth.
