Wolff: Complex challenges to be solved in BakuApril 24, 2019
Mercedes is preparing for the Grand Prix of Azerbaijan, which will be held on the most interesting highway in Baku, where riders face difficulties with heating the rubber, especially the front, and finding the optimal settings, and the cost of error is very high there. To what hopes the champion team binds with the fourth stage of the season, said its leader Toto Wolff.
Toto Wolff: “Three winning doubles in the first three races – a fantastically successful start of the season. We were able to maximize all the opportunities presented to us, although our car was not always the fastest.
The team coped well with the task, each of its department worked confidently, and a double pit stop in Shanghai is only one of the most notable examples of this, and there were a lot of them. However, we understand that we must continue to work hard.
The next stage of the season will be held in Azerbaijan, where in previous years we have seen exciting races more than once, and I am sure that this time will be the same. The configuration of the track there is such that we have to solve a whole complex of uniquely complex tasks, so it is interesting to see which team can find the most correct compromise so that the machines can cope well with long straight lines and slow turns.
However, in Baku it is important not only to show a good speed – in order to achieve a good result, it is equally important to avoid trouble.
Last year, the Valtteri had a great race, but because of a tire puncture, shortly before the finish, he lost his well-deserved victory. Now Bottas started the season well, and I am sure that he intends to win back last year’s failure.
Unlike the previous season, Lewis Hamilton is sent to Baku by the leader of the individual championship and will undoubtedly try to repeat last year’s success. ”
