The Sauber-bound Finn conceded that Ferrari are not in a strong position -- they trail Mercedes by 55 points in the constructors' standings with two races to go -- but made it clear they will not be giving up. "We did qualifying. I think we talk about qualifying".
FIA procedure requires drivers to be pushed on and off the weighbridge by officials in order to protect the scales, which sit under each wheel, from being damaged. The strategy had some logic behind it as it means Ferrari will start the race on the soft compound - which should be the better race tyre - but had a downpour hit just after they came in for the tyre change, both cars would have been caught on track with the wrong tyre.
Mercedes, having taken pole here for the last four years, gave a reminder of their one-lap pace as Bottas returned to the top of the timesheet, having led the way in Friday's FP2, finishing ahead of Ferrari's Vettel in a familiar second.
"It's not something I've asked Valtteri if he wants but I don't think he's going to want that".
"I moved to the left and that was where he chose to go".
Ferrari started the session looking to have an edge over Mercedes, but Hamilton prevailed in a hard session that was affected by light rain at various points during the hour, even if the track was dry at the key moments.
But there has been no sign yet of a stewards' investigation and Sirotkin said he had no problem with the incident.
"All I can do is try and make sure I'm supportive throughout the weekend". The last lap wasn't that great, if I'm honest.
"I definitely don't want to win if it's given to me", said Bottas in a subsequent media briefing.
He beat team-mate Charles Leclerc, who is moving to Ferrari to partner Vettel next season in a swap with Raikkonen, by 0.196secs. Toro Rosso's Brendon Hartley, who had high hopes this weekend with Honda's Spec 3 engine, also narrowly missed out (by 0.011s to be precise), while McLaren pair Fernando Alonso and Stoffel Vandoorne joined Williams' Lance Stroll in suffering the familiar fate of opening-segment elimination.
"We have done a lot of work to make sure the vehicle is in the best way we could". He wasn't on a quick lap so I don't know what his thinking was.
