Verstappen: There is always a lot going on in Baku

Last year’s Grand Prix of Azerbaijan ended for Red Bull Racing with a double derailment after a collision between partners, and the team hopes not to repeat the previous mistakes …

Max Verstappen: “Baku is an interesting race, because usually you try to tune the car to a high level of downforce on the city road, but because of the long straights, you have to compromise. As a result, the car does not have enough clutch and it slides in the corners.

Near the tower in the old town is a very narrow segment, but it looks beautiful in the photographs. Thanks to the long straight line and the DRS zone in Baku, it is possible to overtake, the weekend turns out to be interesting – there is always a lot going on there. I hope this year we will again have a great race. “

Pierre Goesley: “I am glad to any racing weekend endu, looking forward to the fourth Grand Prix of the season and return to Europe. In Baku, the city highway, where there is no margin for error, is not easy to perform there, but we feel a pleasant adrenaline rush. The track is interesting and technical, with numerous turns and the longest straight line in the calendar, where you can overtake – this race always turns out to be incredibly interesting.

In Formula 2, I started there last and fought with Giovinazzi on the last couple of laps, and in the end I finished second. Everything is gradually changing for the better. It was great to drive the best lap of the race in China, let’s see what awaits us next weekend. ”
