After declaring third as the best place from which to start in Russia, Wolff was asked about Russell's chances for the race.
“I would not be surprised if George is leading the race after turn three and that would be good fun to watch," added Wolff.
“As long as Lewis can make up positions, we would have the present and the future running in P1 and two.
“But joking aside, he has shown strong performance. He took massive risks by being the first one to pit for softs but equally, where he was, probably qualifying eighth or ninth, that was the right thing to do from Williams’ side and George’s side."
