Ricciardo's warning ahead of blockbuster race

British superstar Lewis Hamilton claimed his 95th pole position on Saturday, and had nothing but praise for the "phenomenal" track.

"It’s been a really tough weekend, if I’m honest,” Hamilton conceded.

“Firstly, this track is phenomenal — it’s a really challenging circuit and you saw Valtteri was quicker than me all day yesterday and even this morning.

“But I’ve been working hard in the background to improve on my lines and set up and the engineers and mechanics did a great job, so finally I got the lap that I needed.”

Hamilton also warned of several "unknowns" in the track with no historical F1 data.

"The engineers don't know what to expect, and it's the same for me," Hamilton said.

"We've got an uphill long run down to Turn One with a headwind, we're all on soft tyres, and we don't know how long they'll last. We don't know what overtaking's going to be like."
