Obra del "diseñador adjudicatario oficial de la FIA" Hermann Tilke, el circuito es poco más que la mera inserción de una pista en una población.

Con 6003 metros de cuerda, se convierte en el segundo circuito más largo de la temporada, tras Spá-Francorchamps.

El trazado es el típico de las pistas urbanas, curvas de 90º separadas por tramos rectos, y destacan los más de dos mil doscientos metros que hay entre la curva dieciseis y la uno, sin ninguna curva como tal, solo dos leves virajes muy abiertos, lo que hace que esta sección se convierta en la más rápida de la temporada.

También es destacable la estrecha y revirada zona que rodea las murallas (segundo sector), que no da lugar a errores con sus 6,6m. de ancho, aunque el hecho de que sea cuesta arriba lo hace bastante más fácil de recorrer.

Previas de los equipos:

Azerbaijan GP: Preview - Red BullHow does it feel to have secured the Monaco race win and to lead the championship for the first time in your Formula One career?

Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen): It was a very good weekend and of course I've never stood on the podium there before so it was very nice to get the win. Taking the lead in the championship feels good but we need to be there at the end of the final race, that's all that matters. Where we are now feels good and of course it shows that we had a decent start to the year but we have to keep on pushing because we still need to improve and do better. Nobody is ever perfect or standing still in this sport. So far we have made the smallest mistakes but nothing major and that is why we are first at the moment but we all know it can change very quickly.

Apart from the win, what sticks out from the Monaco weekend?

MV: We struggled on Thursday in practice but the Team put a lot of work into making sure that the car was a lot better on Saturday. At the start of the weekend we didn't have it quite right and it wasn't all easy, but everyone analysed the data very well and made the car very competitive again for qualifying so we could be in the fight.


It's also very easy to make a mistake around Monaco, you have to keep focussed lap after lap, but last Sunday it felt really good to be leading the race and controlling it. I was not going to throw away my first Monaco win that's for sure.


Moving on to Baku, is it a circuit that you enjoy and what are you expecting from the RB16B?

MV: The track is ok but probably not a favourite of mine if I'm honest. I've never been on the podium there so it's time to change that. Let's see how competitive we are, I do expect Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) to come back strong there though.


Looking back on Monaco, how happy are you with the result given where you started and how hard it is to gain positions there?

Sergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez): I'm happy that in the end we managed to have a good result, especially given where we qualified after a poor Saturday.


Sunday's race was the quickest Monaco Grand Prix in history. Mentally, just how hard is it to stay focused and concentrated for those 78 laps and stay out of the barriers?

SP: It was very tough mentally. As always, Monaco is just hard to keep the car out of the walls whilst being on the limit. Especially you need to know when to push and when not to, that is the key! The result on Sunday is a big boost for the Team and we're definitely looking forwards to keeping it up there, but we cannot forget that it's only race five of the season and there's still a very long way to go.


The next race in Baku is another circuit you've been on the podium at. Do you enjoy this race and will it play to our strengths?

SP: I'm really looking forward to Baku and I hope we can put a strong qualifying together because we've proved that our race pace is right up there with the best. We just have to improve our Saturdays and then we should be fine.


Now we're in the lead of the constructors' championship, does it add any additional pressure? Or does it give us added confidence?

SP: It doesn't change anything. We have to stay realistic and know that it's race five of the season. It doesn't matter where we are now, it only matters where we end up at the end of the season in Abu Dhabi.

We need to keep our heads down and continue working as hard as we have been doing in the past months.


• Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) Racing Honda are leading the Drivers' and Constructors World Championships for the first time since 2013.


• Baku is the only unique circuit layout on which Checo has twice finished on the podium prior to 2021. He has also been on the podium twice in Bahrain, but on different layouts. Baku is also the only circuit on which he has finished on the podium more times than Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen) (2 to 1).


• Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) Racing were the winners of the first Azerbaijan Grand Prix in 2017 (the first race held in Baku was the 2016 European GP), thanks to Daniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo)'s victory.


• Turn 15 of the Baku City Circuit is near to the Deniz Mall, which will host the Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) Cliff Diving event on October 16. The 85 km/h entry speed of turn 15 is approximately the same entry speed as will be experienced by the divers as they jump indoors into the 12-metre-wide pool.


• At 28 metres below sea level, Baku is the lowest-lying capital city in the world and the lowest-lying F1 venue. If Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen) wins here he will complete a unique double, having won in Mexico City in both 2017 and 2018 at an altitude of 2,240 metres.

Azerbaijan GP: Preview - Alpine
While the team scored points in Monaco, it has been a disappointing weekend. This weekend's Azerbaijan Grand Prix presents the next opportunity of securing a good team result. Executive Director Marcin Budkowski explains the post-Monaco feeling and previews the demands of the Baku City Street Circuit.


What's the mood in the camp post-Monaco?

Marcin Budkowski: After two promising races in Portugal and Spain, Monaco has put a brief halt in our progression. It was generally a poor showing, and there's no hiding from that as a team. While we managed to score points, we're not satisfied with our relative performance compared to our main competitors. Some of the teams we've been fighting closely with recently were clearly more competitive than us and took a big reward for that. We'll take forward our learnings, some of which will naturally be related to Baku, another street circuit with the same compound of tyres as Monaco. We've used the days in between to regroup at Enstone and Viry, to learn and move forward.


What are the main reasons the team was not as competitive as previous circuits?

MB: We didn't manage to realise the performance of our car package and of the tyres. On the streets of Monaco, everything needs to come together to give the driver confidence and extract the lap-time. Admittedly, we managed to find some pace in qualifying with Esteban, but it came too late in the weekend to make the most of it. A big part of the success is in the preparation and we did not get that quite right last weekend.


How is the team preparing for Baku?

MB: Baku is also a street circuit, but with a significantly lower downforce level than Monaco because of the long straights and high-speed sections. We have a small upgrade package, as per our development plan, so it's been a busy week at the factory to have everything ready. All the while, we've conducted rigorous analysis and simulations to make sure we go to Baku with the best possible understanding of what our issues were in Monaco to ensure they don't affect us again.


We've seen some eventful races in Baku in the past, so it's important to be able to make the most of any race events and capitalise on them. The aim is to be as close as possible to the front to benefit from any kind of attrition.


How pleasing is it to see the Alpine Academy success in Formula 2?

MB: It was good to see Formula 2 racing in Monaco after a long break since Bahrain. The drivers did a solid job, especially Zhou and Oscar who are now the top two in the championship, courtesy of further trophies being added to their season collection. Baku will be demanding for them, but the signs are there for another strong weekend for the Alpine Academy drivers.


Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon) made it four consecutive points-scoring finishes after his ninth place in Monaco. Baku is next – a street circuit, which boasts some very unique features, where Esteban targets to add more points to his season tally.

What's it like racing in Baku?

Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon): I like racing in Baku. It's a very unusual circuit where, as we've seen in the past, anything can happen. It's an interesting layout with the long straights, followed by some very challenging and closely spaced corners in sector two. We go from one street circuit in Monaco, a short lap and difficult for overtaking, to Baku, another street circuit, which is almost opposite as it's long with plenty of overtaking spots. The atmosphere at these city-based street circuits is always great. Everything feels really close to the track and you can feel the sensation of speed even more.


How challenging is the Baku City Street Circuit?

EO: It's a circuit where you can see three or more cars go wheel to wheel down the straights, which, on a street track, is incredible. That's what makes the race in Baku so exciting as there are opportunities to make some places. It's a bit tricky on finding the right balance between straight line speed for the straights while not taking too much downforce off the car to allow you to make up lap-time through some of the slower corners.


What are your post-Monaco thoughts heading into this weekend's Azerbaijan Grand Prix?

EO: I left Monaco feeling reasonably pleased. We've made it four points-scoring finishes in a row, and we want to keep that going. Monaco underlined some areas we need to improve. We had expected to be more competitive than what we achieved, so we go to Baku aiming to put ourselves higher inside the top ten. I've not been to Baku for a couple of years and, like last weekend, I'll build up my confidence in the car through the practice sessions.


This weekend Fernando Alonso (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/1/fernando-alonso) heads to Azerbaijan for only the fourth time in his Formula 1 career. The Spanish driver will look to make it three points finishes in a row in Baku, when he tackles the streets of the capital this weekend.

You've had some good races here before, most famously in 2018, do you enjoy racing in Baku?

Fernando Alonso (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/1/fernando-alonso): I always enjoy racing here in Baku. It's a good circuit with lots of challenging corners and overtaking opportunities. After two races in a row – where it was quite tough to overtake – it's nice to have a race where it's more possible. I've qualified outside the top ten in my past two races here but gone on to finish inside the points. It shows anything can happen in what is usually a very unpredictable weekend. The circuit has a mix of areas where the priority is top speed, with the middle sector more dependent on downforce and mechanical grip. It's a challenging weekend for both car and driver and finding a good balance with the setup will be very important.


It was a challenging weekend in Monaco, what are your feelings looking back?

FA: We came into the weekend hoping for more from our package, but we just couldn't find performance all weekend. The starting position was key and, unfortunately, we didn't do well in qualifying, so it made the race extremely difficult. We have a lot of data to look back on and see if we can identify areas of improvement ahead of Baku. Despite the result, I enjoyed being back racing around the streets of Monaco, it's always a special feeling.


We're now five races into your Formula 1 return, how do you rate your season so far?

FA: I'm feeling more and more confident with each race. I think we can see that it's taking a bit of time for those in new teams this year to adjust and for me it's the same. It's a process and we're always learning and trying to find ways to improve the car. But we are aware that 2022 is going to be an important year and this is in some ways a preparation year. The car has felt good in races like Portimao and Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona), so we are confident we can build on these performances and lessons to score more consistent points to fight with the teams around us in the championship.

Azerbaijan GP: Preview - AlphaTauriPierre Gasly (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/53/pierre-gasly): "We come to the Baku race after what was an excellent weekend for us in Monaco, when I was always in the top ten in all sessions, and then sixth in qualifying, my best of the season which I think was a very strong performance. Then I finished sixth, having Lewis behind me for the entire race. During the race, you don't really think about who is driving the car behind you, although of course I knew it was him. But I understood there was really no way for him to get by and it would all come down to the pit stop. I just had to focus, concentrate on my driving and the team also played its part with the strategy in keeping him behind. So I am satisfied, as it was important for the team to find our true performance level again and to have a clean weekend, which is complicated in Monaco as it's a tricky circuit. But we managed it and that delivered our best result of the year so far. It was also really cool to race with fans again at the track, especially as there were many French people there as it was Monaco, so I felt more support than usual. It was a real pleasure to interact a bit with fans, even if was not yet a full-size crowd.

"Since then I have spent some time in the simulator in the UK and then I headed off to Baku via Dubai. It's a lot of travelling but it's all for a good cause because we are heading for a very busy part of the season. I'd say Baku is a really unusual track and it has something in common with Monaco, being a street circuit in the centre of a town, so it's not a normal sort of track. That means you have to set up the car a bit differently. You run with much lower downforce than in Monaco, and the corners are much slower in Baku, but it is similar in terms of grip and in some other characteristics, and we will be using the C5 softest tyres again. The lack of surface grip and the low downforce means it is not a straightforward challenge and it is difficult to find the best set up for the car with the long straight that means the tyres and brakes lose temperature a lot and there are other factors to take into account to get everything out of the car over one lap and also in the race.



"I quite like the circuit, I finished second in GP2 a few years ago but in F1, although I was quite competitive, I have always had some bad luck, but I plan to change that this week. I hope we will be able to perform at a similar or even better level than in Monaco."


Yuki Tsunoda (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/71/yuki-tsunoda): "Baku will be another new experience for me and I should benefit from some lessons learned in Monaco, another street circuit. My plan building up to the race in Monaco was to maximise the number of laps I did in practice, but unfortunately in FP2 I hit the wall and for me that was the main downside of the last weekend. Even though I didn't feel that I had lost confidence because of the crash, in Qualifying that last bit of confidence, for example in the fast corners, is very important so I learned an important lesson, especially for street tracks, not to go into the wall!

"I really enjoyed my first time in Monaco, it was a fantastic experience and really fun up until that moment in FP2. In general, after five races now, I am feeling more familiar with the race weekend, there are less surprises and I feel more in control and I've got used to some of the things that surprised me earlier in the year, like all the media work at races on a Thursday. It was using up a lot of my energy but now I am more comfortable with everything which is a positive thing.

"The technical aspect is still quite challenging, especially as in the current situation I have been struggling a bit with the car set-up. I believe that is normal as I have only done five races, but the important thing is that I am learning a lot about the car. My mind set is fine, I'm in good shape and things are going in the right direction. There is still some pressure, but I am enjoying every minute of being a Formula 1 driver and there is always something new to deal with at every new track. In Monaco there was even the new experience of seeing fans and hearing them calling the names of the drivers, which felt really crazy.


"This week is Baku, I have never raced there before but I have driven it on the simulator of course. Most of the corners seem to be 90 degree turns and almost all the corners are taken in similar speed range so it will be interesting. It's another street circuit, but it looks as though it might be a little bit easier to adapt to than Monaco. Hopefully I will be in a better situation there. Again, I will try and do as many laps as possible and my main aim will be to make sure I don't get too close to the walls in practice and Qualifying. I will take the Monaco experience and everything I learned there and apply it in Azerbaijan.

"I am pleased with the definite progress made by the team with the car since the beginning of the season. It's true the results have not come together yet and I am on a steep learning curve. I spend as much time as possible talking with my engineers to learn more and I hope that will help me continue to make progress through the season."

We're looking to keep this positive momentum going as we head to Baku. I'm looking forward to jumping in the car and racing on another street circuit for a second race in a row. Baku is a unique race with a mix of long straights and slow corners that make it an exciting challenge to master. It's also unpredictable as you always get the sense that there will be opportunities, so we'll need to be ready to make the most of them if they come our way.

"The competition around us is providing some great battles on track. We need to keep pushing to get everything we can out of the car and stay out of trouble, as there's little room for error when it comes to street circuits. The key for us is to find consistency throughout the weekend to be able to walk away with a good amount of points on Sunday."


Daniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo): "Monaco wasn't my weekend but I'm looking to bounce back. It's been important to take time to reset and refocus before heading to Baku. The team and I have been working hard in the sim to understand, analyse and pinpoint the key areas we need to improve. We know the car has good potential, we just need to put all pieces together to unlock it. There's still that element of adapting to a new car which I'm sure will come with the more time and mileage behind the wheel. I'm going to keep working at it, build on the progress we made in Portugal and Spain and try to feel as one with the car.


"Baku is a really cool street circuit and one of those races where potentially anything could happen. The track is known for having one of the longest straights on the calendar with three cars being able to run side-by-side as you head into Turn One. Hopefully, we can get the car into the right window from the off on Friday and have a solid weekend."


Andreas Seidl, Team Principal: "After an eventful weekend in Monaco, that saw us on the podium for the second time in five races, our attention now turns to another exciting street circuit in Baku. We're continuing to make a good start to the season through the hard work of the entire team both at the factory and the track alongside our colleagues at Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) HPP. However, we need to remain focused and look to keep consolidating our performances one race weekend at a time. It's crucial we stay on top of reliability, make the right calls and extract the most from our package to stay in the closely-contested fight with our competitors.


"It's great to be returning to Baku after missing it last season due to the pandemic. In comparison to Monaco, Baku has very different characteristics that make it a different challenge this weekend. The contrast in the layout sees an unusually long straight for a street circuit, with numerous slow corners that will present opportunities and challenges for the teams. Finding the optimal balance to get the best from the car will be key. The general nature of street circuits also leaves no margin for error. We're ready to go racing and fight for some good points this weekend."

Azerbaijan GP: Preview - HaasUralkali Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team's 2021 Formula 1 season will continue with a trip to the edge of Europe for the Azerbaijan Grand Prix at the Baku City Circuit, Round 6 of the campaign.

The city of Baku blends history and modernity where West meets East alongside the inland Caspian Sea, which sits 28 meters below sea level. That makes Baku the lowest-lying capital city in the world, while it is also colloquially labelled 'the city of winds' for the frequently gusty conditions. Thousand-year-old preserved ruins sit alongside imposing Victorian and Soviet era architecture and futuristic glass-fronted skyscrapers, and it is fitting that Formula 1, a forward-thinking championship with a rich history, has found such a home in Azerbaijan's capital.


Already, in just five years, the country has become a firm favorite of the Formula 1 paddock, which itself is set up directly in front of the imposing Government House on Freedom Square. 'Land of Fire' is the motto of Azerbaijan and Uralkali Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team is ready to light up the city streets once more after the pandemic forced the cancellation of last year's planned event.


The Baku City Circuit provides a stern test for teams and drivers alike owing to the variety of sections that make up the 6 km layout. The first sector comprises long straights, heavy braking points and 90-degree corners while the middle section takes drivers through the Old City, past its fortress walls, and includes the narrowest portion of a Formula 1 track all year, with Turn 8 just 7.6 meters wide.


A fast and flowing sector, including multiple blind corners, leads drivers back towards the Caspian Sea and along a full-throttle section that lasts almost two kilometers. That requires a delicate trade-off between aerodynamic dependency and straight-line prowess, working out how much of each to sacrifice in order to maximize potential.


Uralkali Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team drivers Nikita Mazepin (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/70/nikita-mazepin) and Mick Schumacher (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/69/mick-schumacher) previously tackled Baku City Circuit during their rookie FIA Formula 2 campaigns in 2019. Mazepin banked points by classifying eighth while Schumacher surged from the rear of the field to score fifth position. They will return to Baku City Circuit as Formula 1 drivers to put the Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) VF-21 through its paces between the walls.


The week of the Monaco Grand Prix saw the team communicate extensions of existing partner relationships and the addition of new partners. Are you encouraged that both the team and Formula 1 remain attractive commercial platforms for brands looking for exposure and engagement?

Guenther Steiner: "Absolutely - it is well known that Formula 1 is a very good, global platform for partners. That is what we're counting on. With Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas), we've shown that we can be a good partner and that we're here for the future, and it's a good time to be working with us as I believe we've got a very good future in front of us. I still think for any commercial partner joining Formula 1, or a team - hopefully Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas), it can be good for them."


The youth movement was very much represented on the podium in Monaco with Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen), Carlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz) and Lando Norris (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/60/lando-norris) combining for the third youngest ever podium in Formula 1 history. As a team boss with two 22-year-old rookies in Nikita Mazepin (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/70/nikita-mazepin) and Mick Schumacher (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/69/mick-schumacher), what do you see different in the younger drivers graduating up into Formula 1 these days and what stands them out from their older counterparts?

GS: "These days the drivers come in younger anyway, not just now but probably from the last few years or so the drivers have been entering Formula 1 younger than the old days. It's a trend. Obviously, they get older quicker - or they get older younger, I would say. They start karting very young and that's here to stay. Your reflexes are better when you're young, your motivation is higher, and I think it's good for the sport to have young people coming along. That's nothing against older guys, so they shouldn't be upset with me about it, but we all have a shelf life. I think that shelf life stays the same, it just starts younger and ends younger now."


There was talk post-Monaco of the FIA looking into a rule potentially taking away a driver's fastest lap time if they subsequently crash and disrupt a qualifying session. What's your take on such a rule being implemented?

GS: "I wouldn't be a big fan of that one if it was to be implemented. It obviously came up because Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc) hit the wall pretty hard on his last run in qualifying, but obviously it was not intentional. If it had been, the FIA would have seen that, it's very easy to see that on the data if somebody's done something intentionally. I don't think there's a need to start this discussion. What if instead of a red flag there was only a yellow flag and some people slow down and not some others - do we still cancel the lap of the guy who brought the yellow out? It's worked for a long time as is, and it's happened once, especially in Monaco where it's very easy to crash by the way, I don't think it's a problem we need to fix at the moment. It's part of the risk you take though if you go out late in qualifying. If people had gone out earlier maybe it wouldn't have happened. I think if somebody does something on purpose there should be consequences, but this wasn't the case in Monaco."


The Azerbaijan Grand Prix marks the fifth Formula 1 race to be held at Baku City Circuit. As one of the newer venues on the F1 calendar, how do you feel Baku has integrated itself into the 'hearts and minds' of teams and fans in its short history?

GS: "I think Baku is a very nice place to go to for a race. It's a street circuit but it's got those long straights and the scenery lends itself to the backdrop of the race. We enjoy going there, it's different, but then we always ask for different things - but then want everything to be the same. I'm a big fan of going to Baku and hopefully it stays on the calendar for a long time to come."


The two street tracks of Monte Carlo and Baku couldn't be more different but what do you hope to see Nikita and Mick extract from their trip to Azerbaijan - a track where they do have previous race experience from Formula 2 in 2019?

GS: "They've both raced once there. Obviously, it's a very tricky track, but our expectations are not very high. For them it's the same old story, they need to gain experience and learn all the tricks of the circuit to be ready for the future. Our performance will be not much different from Monte Carlo, but we look forward to it as we always try to get the best out of what we have."


Reflecting on the Monaco Grand Prix, it was probably your most complete race weekend of the season so-far. What are your takeaways from Monaco in terms of your own performance and the team around you?

Nikita Mazepin (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/70/nikita-mazepin): "Monaco was a very complete weekend, in terms of laps and an overall understanding between myself and the team. It was very needed to have a weekend like this - at the stage of the season we're at, it's good to start properly building. I was very happy with the work we did together. I'm looking forward to carrying the momentum forward."


You talked post-race about the intensity of racing in Monaco and the level of concentration required lap after lap. People tend to focus on the physicality of being a race car driver, but do you focus on any mental preparation ahead of races and how does that translate behind the wheel?

NM: "I think out of my experience in racing, obviously the physical part is something you focus on from the moment you really leave go-karts for cars, but to be able to sustain good concentration levels for two hours - it's something you definitely require the most. I have a special training routine that I use in order to be able to sustain that and hopefully improve throughout racing."


We head to another street circuit now, but one that couldn't be more different from Monaco, with Baku City Circuit one of the longest layouts on the 2021 calendar topping out at 6.003-kilometers (3.730-miles). Talk us through the nature of the circuit and the engineering comprise of maximizing the speed on the straights with aerodynamic grip to navigate the Old Town sector of the track.

NM: "Baku City Circuit is a very interesting circuit, it's unlike most street circuits where normally you don't get up to high speed. The track is quite a smooth surface, reasonably new tarmac from my experience there in 2019. You have massively long straights, super high speeds, and big braking points. The track is cool because it contains the Old Town as well, which is super tight - a bit of a Monaco type section, but in general it's a huge difference from Monaco, but another challenge in a Formula 1 car that I need to take on.

I'm quite curious to experience the speeds we'll reach on the main straight. It'll be interesting to see what will happen in Baku."


While this will be your maiden Azerbaijan Grand Prix start you have race experience of the Baku City Circuit from the 2019 Formula 2 season - including a top ten finish in the Feature race. Does the track suit your driving style and how you like the car to be balanced, and what else did you learn from your previous visit that you can carry into your return to Baku in Formula 1?

NM: "I had quite a good experience in Baku in F2 back in 2019, although it was just at the beginning of my career there. Baku definitely requires confidence in the car, and I was only building then. I think I'll be much more ready for the challenge, and knowing the circuit is a privilege going into it."


What are your takeaways from the Monaco Grand Prix weekend in terms of your own overall performance and in particular your ability to bounce back from the disappointment of missing qualifying on Saturday to demonstrate a solid race pace on Sunday despite some early issues with your VF-21.

Mick Schumacher (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/69/mick-schumacher): "Monaco was tough, difficult - we obviously had some incidents on track which always brings you back a bit in terms of confidence. To be fair, I always felt comfortable in the car, that's why also I think you could see in FP3 the pace was there. It was very unfortunate that we missed qualifying as I felt like we had solid pace to be with the guys ahead and fight with them in qualifying. Obviously, we know that Monaco is quite qualifying dependent, so hopefully I'll be able to participate in that next year and show my performance there. I really like the track and I like driving on the streets."


Drivers talk about the intensity of racing in Monaco and the level of concentration required lap after lap. People tend to focus on the physicality of being a race car driver, but do you focus on any mental preparation ahead of races and how does that translate behind the wheel?

MS: "Definitely Monaco is one of the most intense races that we have on the calendar. You don't have time to rest, it's corner after corner, and 78 laps of full speed, 100 percent every lap. If you lose focus it can end really badly. There's nothing really that I do in terms of mental preparation ahead of the race, but definitely I try to calm myself down in the warm-ups, I bring my concentration towards me before jumping in the car.

Once I'm in the car I feel I'm fully concentrating.


"Obviously, a big part of my concentration level being high and maintaining it, is working with the engineers and mechanics. We're all working as a clock, every little bit works together, and I feel that also affects me when I'm driving - in a positive way obviously. We're able to work together so closely, and they have to have a high focus too, they have to be ready for things like changing tires and reacting to situations. We had the issue in the race in Monaco, so we had to be able to react to it straight away, and I feel like we managed it pretty well. So, there are loads of things that contribute to mental preparation, but there's nothing that we focus on every race doing the same thing - it's always adjusting and analyzing. Each individual race needs a different preparation for the mental side."


We head to another street circuit now, but one that couldn't be more different from Monaco, with Baku City Circuit one of the longest layouts on the 2021 calendar topping out at 6.003-kilometers (3.730-miles). Talk us through the nature of the circuit and the engineering comprise of maximizing the speed on the straights with aerodynamic grip to navigate the Old Town sector of the track.

MS: "It's definitely completely different to Monaco. It's a lot wider, with more concrete walls - where Monaco it's more guard rails, Baku is a lot more walls. It's a kind of a lowish to medium downforce race track, you have to keep the grip for the 90-degree corners in the tight section through the Old Town, then you have the long straights which creates a lot of overtaking opportunities hopefully. I'm definitely looking forward to it, it's a great track, and I was there in 2019. It's a fun track. The long run down to turn one, if you have a good start, you can benefit from it really well, but if you have a bad start it will pay you loads. It's also important to have a good qualifying in order to be in the mix and to fight with the guys around us."


While this will be your maiden Azerbaijan Grand Prix start you have race experience of the Baku City Circuit from the 2019 Formula 2 season - including a top five finish in the Sprint race. Does the track suit your driving style and how you like the car to be balanced, and what else did you learn from your previous visit that you can carry into your return to Baku in Formula 1?

MS: "Well obviously it's going to be my first start in a Formula 1 car in Baku, for sure it's going to be different as it'll be a lot faster. It was a track in my early Formula 2 career I felt I got along with pretty well. We were on the verge of making it to the podium, or P4 at least, in the Sprint race. Unfortunately, in the Feature race I had a mistake which led to a DNF, but nonetheless we caught it back in the Sprint race coming from the back of the field into the top five. It's a race where anything can happen, we've seen that in previous years. It's a track where opportunities open, and if you're in the right place, you can benefit hugely from it - that's what we're aiming for. We should be open minded going into the race and take the opportunities that are given to us."

Azerbaijan GP: Preview - Aston MartinThe sleek, high-rise backdrop of Baku contrasts with the twisty, technical street circuit that encircles an ancient, medieval city. A lap of the track is equally diverse - drivers tiptoe through the narrowest pincer-point on the whole F1 calendar, but spend more than two kilometres with their right foot planted hard on the accelerator pedal. Azerbaijan may be one of F1's newer circuits, but its myriad challenges give off the vibe of an old-school street track.

Lance: "Baku is a place of special memories for me, it's here that I scored my maiden podium in Formula One. It's a complex circuit as it combines flat-out sections with tight corners in the middle sector, making the margin for error minuscule. We are continually progressing with our AMR21 and intend on building on our momentum from Monaco."


Sebastian: "From Monaco, we travel to another street circuit, Baku - but it's a very different challenge. You can overtake in Baku, and tyre degradation is much more of a factor, so, while Saturday remains important, finding a good balance for the technical sectors and the high-speed sections, while performing a strong race strategy, will be key to a good result. We're coming here off the back of a good weekend in Monaco, and we want to maintain our momentum."


The Azerbaijan Grand Prix punishes mistakes and stirs up unpredictability, keeping the pitwall on its toes as it reacts to events. Our strategy engineers have analysed historic data and recent car performance to predict the key factors that could determine the result on Sunday, presented in partnership with our Title Partner Cognizant.


• Baku is an outlier for street circuits because track position isn't essential, especially compared to the likes of Singapore and Monaco. The 2019 race had the fourth-highest amount of overtakes that season - 57 completed after the first lap, 49 (86%) of which were boosted by DRS.


• Overtaking is comparable to easy-to-pass Austria and Bahrain, so pit strategy is about the optimum, rather than reactionary. It's roughly a 21-second time-loss in Baku, making it one of the quicker pit-visits on the calendar. Strategy is driven by tyre degradation, and Pirelli has brought its softest and least durable range in the C3, C4 and C5. Expect one-stop races, but with early pitstops to remove the Soft tyre in favour of a longer-lasting compound.


• The Safety Car has the potential to affect strategies because the likelihood of a mid-race interruption is high. The VSC has appeared in a quarter of all Azerbaijan Grands Prix, while the Safety Car has featured in 50%. Race interruptions could affect when a team pits or if it switches to a two-stopper in the hope of finding a fresh-tyre advantage.

Azerbaijan GP: Preview - Alfa RomeoFormula One returns to Azerbaijan after a one-year, Covid-induced hiatus: one year away from the square corners, tight confines and impossibly long and fast final sector of the Baku City Circuit that did only make us look forward to this race even more.

Races in this venue have a knack for surprises: plenty of thrills and spills peppered previous editions and there's every chance this year's, too, will turn up to be a classic. In any case, chaos or not, the team heads to the shores of the Caspian Sea with their heads held high and the quiet confidence of a squad that, having finally opened their point tally in Monaco, is ready to for more.


First Q3 of the season - check. First top ten finish of 2021 - check. Alfa Romeo (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/15/alfa-romeo) Racing ORLEN have demonstrated the team's relentless progress is allowing Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen) and Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi) to fight for places in the upper half of the field both on Saturday and Sunday and there's no reason for the fun to stop now.


A circuit like the one in Baku should allow for all the overtaking we didn't get in Monaco: opportunities to pass are definitely available around the 6 km track, in particular on and at the end of the endless final straight. As always, the battle with the close in the midfield, but we're ready to show all we can do: fighting in the streets has never been this appealing.


Frederic Vasseur, Team Principal: "We approach the next race full of confidence in our team, our car and our chances. Breaking our duck and scoring a point in Monaco has been important, mostly from the psychological side, as we finally had a weekend where bad luck didn't hamper our progression. We still feel a bit of disappointment as we know we could have finished even higher up the road, but this just shows how much potential we still have. We come to Baku ready to continue placing our cars in Q2 and beyond, have another good race and hopefully bring home another strong result."

Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen): "It's nice to see the team getting stronger with each race and I hope this weekend can be a good one for us. Races in Baku can be very chaotic and it's always a good chance to get a good result if we do our job properly. We know what we have to do - get the most from every session, from Friday to Sunday: we have shown we can battle with everyone in the midfield so let's see how it goes."


Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi): "Baku is one of my favourite tracks to race on, I love it. I have some very good memories here from my time in GP2 and I had a strong Saturday when I first came here in F1, in 2019. I had my first Q3 on that day and I would love a repeat performance this weekend. Getting a point on the board last time out in Monaco was a good result, even more so when we think about how strong we looked.

We are confident we can carry over this form here and continue to reap the results of the progression we have made."

Azerbaijan GP: Preview - PirelliThe softest tyres in the Pirelli Formula 1 range have been selected at the Azerbaijan Grand Prix for the first time: C3 as the P Zero White hard, C4 as the P Zero Yellow medium, and C5 as the P Zero Red soft. Notably, this is a step softer than 2019 (the last time that the race was run) and the same nomination as Monaco.

This choice has been made in order to introduce an extra strategic element: last time, the hard compound wasn't used at all during the race. Going a step softer now brings the hard choice into play and encourages more variety in the strategies.


The track surface on the Baku street circuit is one of the less aggressive in terms of asphalt roughness and does not take a lot of energy out of the tyres, making the softest compounds in the range an optimal choice.


Track Characteristics

• Baku has been described by drivers in the past as having the complexity of Monaco with the speed of Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza). While this isn't precisely the case, it gives a good insight into the nature of the fastest and longest street circuit on the calendar from a driver's perspective.


• Aside from that, Baku has all the characteristics expected from a street circuit: a 'green' and slippery surface that is likely to evolve quickly, especially as it has not been used for two years. The barriers are unforgiving and it's also extremely narrow at one point (Turn 9): all of which elevates the likelihood of a safety car, obviously affecting race strategy in turn.


• The winning strategy last time was a one-stop soft-medium, used by the top four. Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc) finished fifth for Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) by doing the opposite: medium to soft (plus a second late stop for more softs to set the fastest lap). There was quite a wide pit stop window, with some long stints seen on the medium C3 tyre (now the hard for this year's race) in particular.


• Baku is nicknamed the 'city of winds' due to its frequent and variable windy weather. This obviously affects aerodynamic balance on what is already a tricky track in terms of set-up.


• Due to the long straight in Baku, the teams tend to run low downforce levels. This clearly puts the emphasis on mechanical grip from the tyres throughout the 20 demanding corners.


• Pirelli's 2022 18-inch Formula 1 test programme continued last week with two days of wet tyre testing at Paul Ricard with Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) drivers Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc) and Carlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz). On both days the 18-inch intermediates were tested in the morning, before switching to full wets in the afternoon.

Mario Isola: "From one unique circuit to another: Baku provides a very different test to Monaco, but the precision needed to stay out of trouble is similar. For the first time we bring the very softest tyres in the range to Azerbaijan, as also seen in Monte Carlo. The reason for this nomination is that the hard wasn't used at all in the Baku race in 2019, whereas the medium was used extensively. By re-aligning the nominations, we hope to see all three compounds playing an important role and leading to some different strategies."

Impresiones de los equipos después de la jornada de Prácticas del Viernes:

Azerbaijan GP: Practice team notes - MercedesThe first session of the day saw Lewis finish in P7 and Valtteri in P10. The team's struggles continued into the afternoon with Lewis in P11 and Valtteri finishing P16 in FP2, reflecting the single lap performance of the car. Both drivers looked more competitive on long runs towards the end of the afternoon session.
Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton): We had a clean run and worked through everything we needed to in both sessions - it just wasn't very fast! The car felt better in P1 but in the second session, there just wasn't more time in it - I was pushing hard but we were struggling for grip. We're definitely a chunk of time down and I think everyone will be scratching their heads tonight, looking into the data to figure out what the issue is. The long runs were slightly better but there's lots of work to do.


Valtteri Bottas (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/3/valtteri-bottas): It was very tricky for us today, we are clearly lacking pace and it feels like we're missing overall grip and sliding around. Monaco wasn't easy but at least we were more or less there for qualifying. It's been more of a challenging day than we anticipated and we need to figure out why. We were slightly better on the long runs but we're still lacking pace. So overall not an easy day with lots of work to do - I think it's going to be a long night.


Andrew Shovlin: Today was our worst Friday by some margin. Our biggest issue seemed to be the single lap; we're a long way from our normal positions so clearly we need to find something very significant there.

The long run picture was not as bad - a fair bit behind Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) but still in the mix. So, lots to work on overnight; we're planning a comprehensive programme of analysis and simulator work to try and understand some of these issues but we clearly have an awful lot to find.

Azerbaijan GP: Practice team notes - Red BullSergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez): "I'm happy with today and I think we've definitely made some good progress. We did a very good analysis after Monaco and today felt like I am understanding the car more and how I need to drive it.

I think this is probably the best Friday of the season for me, it's the most complete in terms of data and how comfortable I feel with the car. Hopefully we can get a good, clean lap in qualifying tomorrow which is when it matters, but we'll still work hard tonight to improve and try to find some more lap time."
Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen): "Performance wise I think we had a great start to the weekend here in Baku. It was quite windy out there today which wasn't easy for any of us, but it definitely makes things more interesting.

In FP1 the car felt pretty decent, I was quite comfortable and then for FP2 we made a few changes to see if it was better but I don't think it was, so we'll look into that overnight and see what direction we will go for qualifying. So far I think we look pretty strong as a Team and I'm very happy with that so let's see what we can do tomorrow."

Azerbaijan GP: Practice team notes - McLarenLando Norris (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/60/lando-norris): "A decent day. Hot! But on the whole, I think it wasn't too bad. FP1, we looked quite good; FP2 we struggled a little bit more, so we'll try to understand and see if it was anything we did with the set-up or the conditions. A lot of room for improvement going into tomorrow, so we'll see what we can do with our data tonight and work out how we can improve the car."

Daniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo): "It was a pretty good day. We certainly found a few things and made progress. The lap times don't always tell the full story, and 13th doesn't show much, but I think we're a lot closer than that. Obviously, we've still got to work hard to make it happen, but I think today was certainly a step in the right direction and I feel more comfortable and confident going into tomorrow."


Andrea Stella, Executive Director, Racing: "An interesting and productive Friday. We didn't suffer any major disruptions and acquired a lot of data. This track sets plenty of challenges for the team. For the drivers, it's always a challenge with the low grip and the walls, for the engineers it's the tough choices on choosing the best rear wing level. The tyre allocation this year is interesting too, with both the Soft and Medium compounds having high degradation. However, we had an encouraging day, and the car looks to be in good shape. We're looking forward to building from here for a positive qualifying session tomorrow, and a good race on Sunday."

Azerbaijan GP: Practice team notes - Aston MartinLance Stroll (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/57/lance-stroll): "It is great to be driving in Baku. It is a place that holds special memories for me and it is great fun to drive here. It is so high-speed; you are constantly close to the wall, and it is a challenge for the driver. You can gain a lot of lap time under braking because you arrive at high speeds, and getting the braking point right really helps bring a lap together. I think we made some good progress with the car today; we learned a lot about the set-up and I think we can make further gains with car balance. We will go away tonight, review it all, and try to make improvements for tomorrow."

Sebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel): "We covered plenty of laps and end the day feeling satisfied that we have done our homework. The track was in good shape from the start, but obviously improved quite a bit during the day.

It is a tricky circuit at the best of times, but by the end of the sessions I was finding a nice rhythm. During my laps on the soft tyres, I did not maximise everything and I am sure it is the same for the others because there were a lot of yellow flags, especially this afternoon. So there is more to come. The long runs were a bit cleaner and I have a good feel for the car already. Let's see where we can improve overnight."

Azerbaijan GP: Practice team notes - AlphaTauriPierre Gasly (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/53/pierre-gasly): "It's been a very good Friday for us, a really positive P6 this morning and P5 this afternoon, at the moment I'm feeling very good in the car. I'm able to be quite aggressive and push the limits, I went over too far once or twice but that's how we find the line and extract the maximum from the car. I'm pretty pleased so far, especially because we did the lap without any slip streams so potentially there's more pace available to us tomorrow."
Yuki Tsunoda (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/71/yuki-tsunoda): "It's fairly similar to Monaco here, you have to build up the pace and also confidence in the braking zones, as most of the corners need strong braking. I went into the run-off areas a few times but it was good practice for me to find the limit and luckily I didn't go into the wall! I think the progress from FP1 to FP2 was good, I struggled a bit in the morning, so it was a good step up in FP2. There are a few areas I still need to work on, but the pace is definitely there this weekend, we just need to put it altogether tomorrow."



Jonathan Eddolls (Chief Race Engineer): "We managed a busy but successful Friday practice here in Baku. Pierre has driven here before but for Yuki it was his first time, in any category, and FP1 was a challenge for him. The dirty and low grip track, combined with the wind, definitely had an impact on his initial performance. We mainly used today's sessions to build a better picture of how to maximise the performance from the tyres, with both drivers using the Mediums then the Softs, as well as working on the car balance in FP1. The higher track temperatures and the use of a softer compound this time in Baku has enabled us to get the tyres working quicker than in the past here, which is positive. We were quite happy with the car in FP1, although we could still see a number of areas to improve, so we made some set-up changes to both cars for FP2. This appeared to be a step in the right direction and was reflected in the short-run performance. Yuki did exactly what we asked of him and by the end of FP2 he was a close match to Pierre, I am sure he will find more time in FP3 and Qualifying. The long-runs today were difficult when fighting with cars around, as will be the case at the start of the race, but we have some good data now to analyse, which will help us understand where the limit is and we can then use that in our strategy model."

Azerbaijan GP: Practice team notes - FerrariScuderia Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) Mission Winnow got through all its planned programme for Friday free practice for the Azerbaijan Grand Prix with the priority being for the drivers to get comfortable with the Baku City Circuit and its walls. Between them, Carlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz) and Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc) completed 86 laps, using all the available tyre compounds and evaluating two different aerodynamic configurations.

In the first session, Charles and Carlos completed twenty laps each. They started out on the Hard tyres, waiting for the track to clean up after a lot of dirt had blown onto the circuit with the strong wind over the past few days. When the conditions improved, both drivers switched to the Softs, setting their best times: 1:43.227 for the Monegasque and 1:43.521 for the Spaniard. In the final minutes, the team decided to switch them back to the Hard compound to work in race configuration.


In the afternoon, the programme continued with Sainz and Leclerc going out on the Medium tyres, with which Charles did a 1:43.162 and Carlos stopped the clocks in 1:43.210. After a red flag period, when Latifi stopped on track, Sainz and Leclerc went back out on the Soft tyres for a qualifying simulation. Naturally, their times improved: 1:42.243 for the Spaniard and 1:42.436 for the Monegasque. Then came the only unplanned moment of the day, when Charles hit the barrier at turn 15, damaging the front wing. Apart from that, the car was fine and he was able to drive quickly back to the pits and then go out for a race simulation, as did Sainz. Carlos, who also tried the Soft tyre with a heavy fuel load, completed 24 laps, two more than Charles who only used the Medium compound on his long run.


Carlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz): Today we were a bit quicker than we had expected. However, the time sheets can be misleading, with cars getting tows on the straights - myself included - and others not finishing flying laps for various reasons. Still, it was an encouraging first day for the team here in Baku.


Tomorrow afternoon will obviously be a better indicator ahead of qualifying, so we need to work out where we can gain a bit of lap time on the short runs, as well as finding a good compromise to make the tyres work on the long runs. There could be opportunities this weekend and we need to be ready to make the most of them.


Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc): It was definitely a better day than we expected, but it's only the first day of practice.
The pace looked promising, and we will keep working overnight to be as competitive tomorrow. I felt quite comfortable in the car today, especially in terms of braking, maybe even too comfortable, pushing a bit too much into turn 15. But in the end, that's what free practice is for - testing the limits. I was on a good lap there and we will see what we can do tomorrow.

Our main competitors are quick, even though they haven't shown it yet. We have to make sure we do everything perfectly. We have to maximize our potential and hopefully we can have a good qualifying.

Azerbaijan GP: Practice team notes - AlpineAlpine F1 Team finished practice ahead of this weekend's Azerbaijan Grand Prix with both cars inside the top ten. The first practice in two years at the Baku City Circuit took place in hot and breezy conditions, with Fernando Alonso (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/1/fernando-alonso) - driving for the first time in Azerbaijan since 2018 - finishing the day sixth and Esteban not far behind in ninth.

Free Practice 1 saw the team run an aero test on both cars to evaluate some updates to the A521. During the session, Fernando ran the Hard and Medium Pirelli tyres, but Esteban fitted the Hard and Soft to negotiate the twisty, dusty track.


On the Medium tyres, Fernando improved on his final lap of the session, placing him neatly inside the top ten in ninth position. Esteban finished sixteenth using the Soft compound.


For the start of Free Practice 2, Esteban opted for the Medium tyres with Fernando running the Soft. As track conditions evolved around the 6.003km circuit, drivers often found themselves exploring the escape roads after pushing beyond the limits of the track.


Esteban and Fernando stayed out of trouble despite several yellow flags and a red flag for Nicholas Latifi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/62/nicholas-latifi), which brought proceedings to a short halt mid-way through the session.


With the session quickly restarting, both drivers headed out with Soft tyres. After several push laps, Fernando's 1min 42.693secs was good enough for sixth, with Esteban joining him inside the top ten in ninth on a 1min 43.020secs.


Both drivers ended the day on long runs and remained inside the top ten in Friday's final classification.

Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon): "Overall we had a decent day, with good understanding and lots of data, especially on the longer runs. There are obviously some things we need to go through tonight but both cars finished in the top ten in the afternoon. The track was quite dirty this morning but made a huge improvement in FP2. On my side I was not completely happy with the car, but we know the direction we need to take for the rest of the weekend, which is positive: we obviously need to keep this momentum tomorrow."


Fernando Alonso (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/1/fernando-alonso): "It was a positive Friday for us today and good to be back driving in Baku. The car felt good straight away in FP1 and we didn't play around too much with the setup. We tried some different tyre combinations just to understand the needs of the entire weekend and we will take some valuable data from this. Overall, it was a good start to the weekend, but we know there are some other areas of performance for us to still unlock."


Davide Brivio, Racing Director: "It was a positive day as we ran through our programme this morning and afternoon. It looks like our performance is not so bad at the moment and we can be fairly satisfied with the day's work. Fernando is quite happy about the car and we made an improvement for Esteban from the morning. Let's keep the positive trend going for the rest of the weekend."

Azerbaijan GP: Practice team notes - Alfa RomeoThe winds that battered the Baku City Circuit yesterday may have abated - at least a little - but the Azerbaijani track wasn't any less tricky today, as drivers tackled the twenty corners making up the venue of this weekend's Grand Prix in today's first two hours of practice.

Many were caught out, resulting in two sessions with a high degree of disruption - Virtual Safety Cars, yellow flags, even a red flag. In the confusion, the Alfa Romeo (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/15/alfa-romeo) Racing ORLEN team did a fine job across both sessions, keeping out of trouble and managing to bring both cars' programmes to a successful conclusion. The stopwatch also provided validation to the team's work, with Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen) and Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi) being in 11th and 12th respectively after the opening session and the Italian jumping to a credible P7 in the timesheets in the afternoon, his team-mate in P12.


Of course, it's still early in the weekend and much work remains to be done to be ready for tomorrow's qualifying and Sunday's showpiece. The Baku City Circuit is sure to throw a few surprises our way, with wind conditions expected to become more challenging tomorrow and the advantage given by having a tow on the 2.2km home straight sure to play a decisive role in qualifying.


It will take all of the team's ability to navigate through these challenges and bring home another good result: surely, though, the first day around this circuit in two years has proved to be a really positive start to our race weekend. Time to build on it.


Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen): "It was a good way to start the weekend, the car felt ok from the morning session but of course there is still a lot that can be improved. In the end, there were a few interruptions with the yellow and red flags, which broke up the day a little, but it's the same for everyone and we have to deal with it. We will see what we can improve on the car tonight: hopefully we can have a strong day tomorrow."


Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi): "The car felt good from the start: FP1 wasn't too bad and we made a step forward in the second session. I am happy with what we saw in both the qualifying and the race simulations. It's only Friday but I'm satisfied to be seventh in the standings, hopefully we can carry on this form tomorrow. There are still a few little things to improve, of course, but we can be happy so far. Tomorrow we will need to put everything together, as always, and make sure we make the most of the tow as it will be critical. We will try our best and hopefully have a good result."

Azerbaijan GP: Practice team notes - HaasThe sixth round of the 2021 FIA Formula 1 World Championship began with practice on Friday at Baku City Circuit, Baku as teams prepared for Sunday's Azerbaijan Grand Prix.

Friday's track running, held in mostly sunny conditions, consisted of two 60-minute sessions - FP1 and FP2 - on the 6.003-kilometer (3.730-mile), 20-turn street circuit.


Mazepin and Schumacher ran identical tire strategies in FP1 with both VF-21:s utilizing the Pirelli P Zero Yellow medium rubber to start. Their initial wake-up runs were followed by a baseline outing on the Red soft compound - both drivers duly setting their fastest laps of the session. Schumacher logged a best time of 1:46.899 for 19th with Mazepin recording a fastest tour of 1:46.945 for 20th. A high-fuel stint back on the medium tires concluded their respective FP1 run-plans.


Lap times dropped in the afternoon as the track rubbered in. Mazepin opened FP2 with a short run on mediums before bolting on a fresh set of soft tires for his quali simulation. The Formula 2 graduate posted a 1:45.563 on his fastest lap to place 18th overall. Mazepin capped his day with an 11-lap high-fuel run sampling the harder White compound. Schumacher's session was blighted early on by an oil pressure issue after just four laps on hard rubber. An extended stay in the garage ate up precious time but the German returned on softs to clock a 1:46.095 for 19th. Schumacher added another five laps to his tally in the dying minutes of FP2, a short high-fuel run - also on softs, seeing him through to the checkered.
Uralkali Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team ran a total of 73 laps on Friday across FP1 and FP2 - 41 by Mazepin and 32 by Schumacher.


Nikita Mazepin (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/70/nikita-mazepin): "I really enjoyed today; I think we're in a good place. We made some important steps forward. Although the car isn't performing on high and low downforce tracks, the things that we are able to extract, in terms of the set-up of the car, are encouraging. There's obviously plenty to go through but today has definitely gone to plan. In terms of feedback, I felt that tire overheating on long runs is a big issue, not only for us but for other competitors. The track is very low grip and that makes the asphalt just overheat the tires, that's just something I have to get used to coming from Monaco and Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona). I think long runs were our stronger point today though. At the moment where we stand on Friday, I'm not imagining that we'll go forward too much come Sunday, but who knows, maybe Saturday and Sunday can bring some surprises."


Mick Schumacher (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/69/mick-schumacher): "The track was quite dirty to begin with this morning and it didn't really clean up through the first session. With F2 running it did clean up a bit for FP2. Unfortunately, we didn't get all the laps in that we wanted. I had a few issues, but I still got to do one flying lap on the C5 and one or two laps with high fuel. We will probably have to change engines back to the first PU so we will find out and hopefully everything will be fine for tomorrow. In general, we have stuff to learn but we have done quite a bit already and now it's about putting the puzzle together to be in a good window for FP3 and then for qualifying."

Guenther Steiner: "It's always difficult to come here - you know, the track is very green when we start, and our two drivers are rookies, they've both raced here only once before in F2. We knew it was going to be a challenge, but I think the guys did a good job of it. FP2 went well for Nikita (Mazepin), he got in the most running he could there. Mick (Schumacher) had a good FP1, but in FP2 there was a problem with his oil pressure. We tried to chase down what it was, but we could never find out, so he had to come in and out all the time. He at least got half a session in there in FP2, but he's saying he's ready for tomorrow. We continue on the learning curve Saturday - but as you can see, we go from each practice session and improve. That's the aim and that's what we'll continue to do."

Azerbaijan GP: Practice team notes - WilliamsDave Robson, Head of Vehicle Performance: It has been a tough day with high quality laps around this long circuit at an absolute premium. Having had a decent first practice session, we lost valuable time on Nicholas's car this afternoon when the power unit protection strategy was triggered following a trip down the escape road. Unfortunately, Nicholas couldn't get the car back on track quick enough to prevent the power unit getting too hot and so the protection strategy intervened to prevent any damage to the unit.George had a smoother day but struggled a bit for pace at both low and high fuel. However, we got most of the key work done and we know that there is more time to come from both car and drivers as this is not a circuit to push too hard too soon.


The tyres are given a hard time on this long track, especially when the track is hot and there will probably be little room for error during qualifying tomorrow. There are likely to be some incidents during the session and it is possible that not all drivers will get the chance to show their pace in Q1. The race could be interesting with a range of tyre strategies possible.


George Russell (https://www.pitpass.com/69869/drivers/66/george-russell): It was a tough day here in Baku. Our competitors are looking a little faster than we expected, but I think with some hard work tonight and the right changes to the set-up we can find some lap time. I wasn't pushing the boundaries massively as it's only practice so it's about getting the laps under my belt and finding a rhythm. Hopefully I can make it count when it matters tomorrow; Q2 is the goal for me and I think it's possible if we can put absolutely everything together. Above all, I think the race on Sunday is going to be really interesting.


Nicholas Latifi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/62/nicholas-latifi): In FP2, I moved out of the way of another car but couldn't turn back left to get back onto the track. In the time it took me to reverse from the escape road the power unit got too hot; the safety measures put in place to make sure it doesn't get damage kicked in and it shut off. Unfortunately, that was the end of my session.


You don't want to miss track time, especially on a street circuit, so it's not ideal but we will make the best of it and see what we can do. Q2 is still the objective for us as a team but we need to see where we are in FP3 tomorrow.

Azerbaijan GP: Practice team notes - Pirelli
Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) drivers were fastest in both hour-long free practice sessions today, with Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen) topping FP1 and Sergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez) going even faster in FP2: on each occasion using the softest tyre in Pirelli's Formula 1 range. This comes to Baku for the very first time as the P Zero Red soft (C5) this weekend.

Perez's best FP2 time (1m42.115s) was more than half a second quicker than the best FP2 time in 2019, when the race was last run. On that occasion, the tyre nomination was a step harder.


With the Azerbaijan Grand Prix held more than a month later compared to 2019 the weather was extremely warm all day, with ambient temperatures of around 30 degrees and track temperatures that peaked at 50 degrees in the afternoon (16 degrees more than FP2 in 2019).

The teams concentrated mainly on the P Zero Yellow medium and P Zero Red soft, with more limited running on the P Zero White hard.


From the estimated simulation data, the performance gap between the hard and medium tyre is approximately 0.6 seconds per lap, while the gap between medium and soft is around 0.8 seconds per lap.

Mario Isola: "As expected, we had a slippery surface at the start of the day, with quite rapid track evolution. It was a hot day in Baku with asphalt temperatures in excess of 50 degrees centigrade, but that doesn't tell the full story as there's so much light and shade on this city circuit that the track temperature in reality can be very varied, leading to changeable grip levels. Getting used to that, as well as balancing the grip between the front and rear axles and working out which compound - soft or medium - will be the optimal choice to start the race with were the main jobs today, throughout a demanding free practice that was also influenced by both yellow and red flags. This isn't an easy track to get to grips with and the surface is still evolving, so there is plenty for the teams to analyse before qualifying, with just a bit of graining seen on the softer compounds in these high temperatures so far. As it's the first time that we're here with the very softest tyres in the range the performance gaps are very much an estimate, but all three compounds are set to play a strong role."

Resultados FP3
Sábado, 5 de junio de 2021



Pierre GASLY marca el mejor tiempo en el último de los entrenamientos en Bakú.

La segunda plaza ha sido para Checo PÉREZ, que le ha dado un buen rebufo a HAMILTON, tan bueno que le ha permitido finalizar 3º cuando ha estado toda la sesión como ayer, bastante perdido. La muestra es que BOTTAS ha terminado 13º, a casi un segundo y medio.

Los Ferrari vuelven a terminar arriba, con LECLERC 4º y Carlos SAINZ 5º.

Tras ellos han acabado NORRIS y Fernando ALONSO, que sigue contento con el rendimento del Alpine.

Esperemos que los problemas de Williams este fin de semana no vayan a más. Tras quedarse parado LATIFI ayer, hoy RUSSELL ha terminado antes la sesión debido a un prblema hidráulico.

Resultados Sesión de CALIFICACIÓN
Sábado, 5 de junio de 2021



Charles LECLERC logra la pole en Bakú, su segunda consecutiva y su segunda que logra con bandera roja, aunque esta no la ha provocado él. Ha comentado que no esperaba esta posición porque no estaba haciendo una buena vuelta pero que encontrarse con el rebufo de Hamilton le hizo mejorar su tiempo hasta permitirle llevarse la pole.

Junto a él mañana tendrá a HAMILTON, su «rebufador» :cunaooooo:. Otro que debe su posición al rebufo, en concreto el que le dió BOTTAS, que mañana saldrá 10º. El pobre preguntó por radio que quién le iba a dar rebufo a él :roto2rie: en su segundo intento después de dárselo él a Hamilton. Luego, el accidente de Tsunoda no le permitió intentar mejorar su posición.

La tercera posición ha sido para VERSTAPPEN, que estaba más que decepcionado de no haber podido completar su segundo intento. Compartirá línea de salida con GASLY, que ha vuelto ha hacer una gran calificación.

Carlos SAINZ saldrá 5º. Otro que se ha lamentado de no haber podido terminar el segundo intento y el haberse encontrado con Tsunoda accidentado, lo que le llevó a golpear las protecciones para esquivarlo. A su lado saldrá NORRIS.

Checo PÉREZ vuelve a quedar a bastente distancia de su compañero. Ha terminado 7º.

A pesar de su accidente y de no haber hecho nada más que un intento, TSUNODA ha acabado 8º.

Tras él ha terminado Fernando ALONSO, que no estaba nada contento por el tema de las banderas rojas, ya que no le han permitido sacarle jugo a los neumáticos nuevos en toda la sesión.

Fernando ha lamentado que en cada una de las Q, justo cuando montaban el neumático nuevo, aparecía una bandera roja. Esto le ha hecho quedar 15º en Q1, quedar 10º en Q2 y finalmente 9º en Q3 al no poderle sacar partido. Piensa que el coche estaba para algo más, para haber sido 7º u 8º de no haber sido por esa última bandera roja.

Ha lamentado también que los que han terminado sin indicentes tienen que dejar el coche en parque cerrado hasta mañana a las 12, mientras que los que han provocado todas esas banderas rojas van a poder realizar cambios en sus coches sin penalización porque se trata de reparaciones, aunque también ha reconocido que la norma es así y que en caso de accidentarse él pues también se vería beneficiado al poder hacer esas sustituciones de piezas.

Le han preguntado que si en el equipo tenían previsto hacer rebufos y ha comentado que lo pensaron en un principio pero que Ocon dijo no estar cómodo con hacerlos porque no le permitían preparar bien su vuelta, por lo que decidieron que cada uno fuera por su cuenta.

De paso ha aprovechado para señalar que en las últimas carreras ha estado por delante de él en los entrenamientos libres pero luego no en calificación y que por fin ha logrado terminar por delante de él.

Parece que en cuanto comienza a tener más seguridad, es más el Fernando Alonso de siempre en sus declaraciones.

Lo veo en ingles pero entro en Twitter de pascuas a ramos, cuando entro en algun enlace que poneis por aqui, y precisamente Lomato era ayer "trendin" por lo mismo que comentais, ese es el nivel de nuestro calvo favorito jiji

Que ganas de esta carrera, vaya parrilla mas cuajanuda para hoy.

PD: que pena me dió Ricciardo, joer, esa vocecilla....es uno de los grandes, espero que que vaya poco a poco para arriba. Por mucho que me alegre de lo bien que va Norris, esta "contrapartida" con su compañero es dolorosa.

Lo de Lomato cada día es peor. Parece que le da todo igual porque si quieres verlo en español, no tienes otra alternativa.

Entre lo de Mazepin, no parar de confundir pilotos aunque sean de equipos distintos, no darse cuenta de cosas evidentes con tan solo echar un ojo al live timing, no parar de alabar/justificar a Carlos y Fernando en acciones que califica de control/confianza si son ellos y de error/riesgo innecesario si son los demás, ahora hay que escuchar de manera constante «¡bandera amarilla! pero tranquilos, no es ninguno de los nuestros». Cada día es más cansino. Y es una pena, porque con los que son y la cantidad de años que llevan, no tengo duda de que podrían dar algo más de calidad.

Impresiones de los equipos después de la sesión de Clasificación:

Azerbaijan GP: Qualifying team notes - MercedesLewis will start the Azerbaijan Grand Prix in P2 after a stunning lap in Q3 having shown solid form throughout qualifying. For the second race in a row, Valtteri had a flying lap in Q3 halted for a red flag despite being third-quickest in the first sector and is forced to settle for P10.

Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton): Given the difficult circumstances, I'm just overwhelmed and really happy to get that lap in. We definitely weren't expecting that, and this is such a monumental result for us because we've been struggling like you couldn't believe all weekend. We kept our composure and continued to have difficult conversations in the background, challenging one another and just never taking "no" for an answer.


Today was the biggest jump we've been able to make between FP3 and Qualifying. We discovered something at the end of FP3 and we continued to push in that direction. It's been so difficult and there was so much work back at the factory overnight and today - I hope everyone's happy but we've still got a job to do tomorrow.


Our race pace is a lot better than our single lap pace, we're miles off on a single lap and a lot closer in race pace. We don't understand why, but I'd like to think we can take the fight to the other teams tomorrow.


Valtteri Bottas (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/3/valtteri-bottas): My pace has been suffering all weekend and I feel like ultimately, something is wrong because I'm on the limit but so far off the pace - if I push harder, I'm in the wall. We alternate and this weekend was Lewis' choice to decide who goes first out the garage so obviously in the first run on Q3 he had my tow and in the second run I tried to get tow from Charles but there was the red flag which stopped my flying lap.


Tomorrow will be a challenge but I know anything can happen in this race - I've been here before one lap down and finished back at the front. So you never know and for sure, we'll keep trying and I'll just try to understand everything I can tonight and fight tomorrow.


Toto Wolff: The job that has been done back in Brackley and Brixworth, and from the engineers here, is fantastic - they designed an incredible programme which we went through line-by-line. We made a series of experiments - some were useful, others not but we were able to gain answers to our questions and then produce a car that was good.


Yesterday our long runs looked good and we were on a similar pace to the Red Bulls so I think we have a decent shot at a good result tomorrow.


Andrew Shovlin: We didn't really expect to have a car on the front row going into the session but Lewis made the most of what he had and was able to put in pretty impressive laps throughout. He'd managed to get a better feel for the front end in the morning session and managed to build on that in qualifying which was encouraging. Valtteri has had a tough weekend from the word go. We need to pick through his car to try and understand where the issue is as he's just not got the grip that Lewis has had, regardless of where we have put the setup.


The race should be interesting tomorrow; we had a reasonable long run on Friday and the race is as much about pace and degradation as it is track position. It's also one where anything can happen with a high probability of safety cars and red flags but hopefully we can move forward with both drivers.

Azerbaijan GP: Qualifying team notes - Red BullMax Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen): "Of course I'm not that happy as I was very confident we could fight for pole here as we have felt good throughout the weekend but qualifying was pretty scrappy with all the red flags and the one at the end of Q3 stopped us all improving. It is what it is and it's unfortunate but it's a fast street circuit and these things can happen. Of course I would have liked to start further ahead but P3 isn't so bad. We know we have a good car so it's still all to play for and we can fight from there. As you can see from qualifying a lot of things can happen around this circuit so let's hope we can have a clean start and then put the pressure on. With three different teams at the front it should also be a pretty interesting race strategy wise as well and it is also about keeping your tyres alive. We are still up there so let's see what we can do tomorrow."

Sergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez): "Today was a big shame as we've shown all weekend we have very good pace but today we didn't put the lap together when it really mattered. There was so much more on offer and we obviously expected more but it is what it is. On my first Q3 run I locked up into Turn 4 and then I was chasing the time for the rest of the lap. On my second run, I was on for a great lap and then the red flag came out for Yuki and Carlos and that was that. I don't remember there being so many red flags in a session but tomorrow is when it counts and anything can happen around this track. I think there are lots of positives to be taken so far from this weekend, the pace every single session has been there and we've shown good progression so we can be pleased with that. Tomorrow is a long race and there is plenty to play for so we need to get our heads down and make sure we deliver. I think we have a very strong car underneath us so a podium has to be the target."


Christian Horner: "It was frustrating not to get that last run in Q3 as Max was improving and in with the chance of a tow at the end of the lap but that's life and it was the same for everyone. Likewise for Sergio, he was banking on his second Q3 lap to show the pace he's had here all weekend but we're still in good shape starting P3 and P7. Our car has been quick here this weekend and overtaking is possible at this track so it should make for an exciting Grand Prix and strategy will be key. It's still all to play for and I'm sure Checo will make progress quickly in the race so that we're able to make the most of the opportunities in front of us tomorrow."

Azerbaijan GP: Qualifying team notes - McLarenLando Norris (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/60/lando-norris): "Chaotic quali, as I'm sure it was for everyone. Finishing P6 on track was ok on a used set of tyres. In the end, we definitely had the potential to do more. I was already up on my final lap on the new tyre before the red flag came out.

"I'm disappointed to be starting P9 after being given a penalty. It's a tough one to take as I felt I took the safest possible action. That will make things more difficult tomorrow, but we can still fight for good points given the overtaking opportunities in Baku, so let's see what we can do."


Daniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo): "Obviously not the way I wanted to end the session. This track can certainly bite, and it did. Crashing never feels good and I feel for the crew who have to do the work, but that's what happens when trying to find the limit on a street circuit, and we can still take positives from today. We took a good step in getting more out of the car and understanding it, but it's still proving tricky to put it all together.
"We'll keep working and tomorrow's a long race. A lot of things will happen and, as you saw in quali, there's probably going to be a bit of chaos. Hopefully we've got our trouble out of the way today, so we can push on tomorrow and get after it. We've got a free tyre choice, so we'll see how we can make some opportunities there. It's all still open, so I'll just learn from the mistake and progress from here."


Andreas Seidl, Team Principal: "A difficult afternoon for the team with a qualifying session dominated by on-track incidents and red flags. Unfortunately, Daniel made a mistake in Q2, crashing in the barrier at the exit of Turn Three, which caused an early end to his qualifying session. It was a great shame after the good step forward he has taken this weekend, in terms of feeling comfortable in the car. On Lando's side, we managed to get through the various incidents up to the last run in Q3, where the final red flag unfortunately cost him the opportunity to use his new tyres.


"We now switch our focus to the race tomorrow, which is when the points are handed out. We should have two strong race cars which will allow us, again, to fight for good positions."

Azerbaijan GP: Qualifying team notes - Aston MartinSebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel): "We had good pace today. I was being patient and waiting to unleash the lap time at the right moment. Unfortunately, I took a bit too much risk on my best lap in Q2 and locked up going into Turn 15. I was lucky to continue, with a big flat spot, but it probably cost me about four tenths. That is what cost me a place in Q3. It is a tricky corner, downhill and bumpy, and it channels the wind. I am disappointed because we easily had the pace to go through to Q3. Then, with the early red flag, there was no opportunity to recover. Anyway, we are starting just outside of the points, but I think we can improve during the race with a nice rhythm and some good race pace."

Lance Stroll (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/57/lance-stroll): "It was my mistake, and I have apologised to the team. Turn 15 is a challenging corner, as we have seen all weekend. It is off-camber and you brake over to the right, which means it is easy to lock up the front-right tyre under braking. With a tailwind like today, you can be caught out. I came into the corner too hot and locked up the tyre after I was already committed. I am obviously frustrated with myself, but the focus is on bouncing back tomorrow. You can overtake in Baku, so we will try to work our way up the field as much as we can in the race."


Otmar Szafnauer, CEO & Team Principal: "Sebastian was very unlucky not to have a chance to push for a Q3 place, denied that opportunity by Daniel's [Ricciardo] Turn Three shunt with a couple of minutes of Q2 still to run. The session was then red-flagged, at which point Sebastian was 11th-quickest, just three-hundredths of a second shy of the Q2 cut-off. However, mitigating his ill fortune, he will start tomorrow's race from P11, the best-placed runner able to select his own choice of tyres on which to begin the race.

Lance hit the wall at Turn 15, sadly for us in Q1, which means that he will start the race from the 10th row. Points will be hard to get from back there, but you can be well sure that Lance will give it his all and, with a clever strategy and his strong race pace, points may be possible for him."

Azerbaijan GP: Qualifying team notes - AlpineAlpine F1 Team will line up with Fernando Alonso (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/1/fernando-alonso) ninth and Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon) twelfth on the grid for tomorrow's Azerbaijan Grand Prix, after a messy qualifying session littered with red flags around the Baku City Circuit.

Q1 began amidst some of the hottest temperatures of the season, but the session came to a halt early on after a red flag caused by Lance Stroll (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/57/lance-stroll). Both Esteban and Fernando headed back out after the session restart and completed their laps to go fifth and seventh. Moments later another red flag was waved, this time for Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi), delaying the session for a second time. With a good time in hand Esteban opted to remain in the garage but Fernando went again on used Soft tyres. The Spaniard didn't complete his lap, however made it through to Q2 in fifteenth. Esteban was ninth following his one timed lap.


Eager to avoid being caught in another red flag scenario, Fernando and Esteban headed out immediately at the start of Q2. Fernando put in a 1min 42.195secs on Soft tyres, edging himself into ninth position and Esteban just outside the top ten on a 1min 42.273secs.


Both drivers embarked on their final laps of Q2, but a third red flag ended the session early. Fernando, who was placed in the top ten in tenth place, progressed onto Q3, however Esteban narrowly missed out in twelfth, less than a tenth down on his teammate.


In his first appearance in Q3 since the Bahrain Grand Prix Fernando headed out on scrubbed Soft tyres having used several compounds in the early parts of qualifying. His timed lap placed him ninth on a 1min 42.327secs.


With the clock ticking and armed with fresh Soft tyres, Fernando embarked on his final push lap of the day, however Yuki Tsunoda (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/71/yuki-tsunoda) and Carlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz) both hit the wall to bring out a fourth red flag and an immediate end to qualifying, leaving the Spaniard ninth for tomorrow's race.


Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon): "It wasn't our session clearly. Q1 went well but into Q2 there were a lot of incidents. I got impeded into Turn 3 on my first run and hit the wall because of that, then on the second run the red flag came out so I couldn't go again. It's a bit frustrating as the car looked as though it was capable of getting well into the top ten so we will look to convert that tomorrow. Plenty is possible with our pace; I am definitely looking forward to the race, which is always a crazy one."


Fernando Alonso (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/1/fernando-alonso): "It was a bit of a messy session today and it was difficult to get into any kind of rhythm during qualifying. Unfortunately, we were unable to exploit the full potential of the car as every time we fitted fresh tyres a red flag came out. But it's the same for everybody, so we have to take the positives away from today. It's my first time in Q3 here so that's good and we can see what is possible tomorrow."


Davide Brivio, Racing Director: "It was a very tricky session with so many red flags, it was difficult to get into a rhythm and I think we didn't use our potential. Fernando was comfortable in the car and we can be happy to get into Q3, but we could have done better with the last laps to extract the final lap time we knew was there. Esteban improved this morning but we were so unlucky with the red flag roulette; we just paid the price with him. This track is quite unpredictable so we will do our best for tomorrow. We know the pace is there so we need to stay focussed on our race."

Azerbaijan GP: Qualifying team notes - FerrariFor the second race in a row, Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc) has secured pole position and tomorrow at 16 local (14 CET), he will start the Azerbaijan Grand Prix at the head of the field. It was the Monegasque's ninth career pole and Scuderia Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari)'s 230th, its second at Baku, to add to Sebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel)'s in 2018.

Unfortunately, Carlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz) was rather unlucky and will start from fifth on the grid, even though he clearly showed the potential to have secured a place on the front two rows. After all the drivers had set a time in Q3, the second runs had to be aborted as the red flag came out after Yuki Tsunoda (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/71/yuki-tsunoda) crashed into the barrier at turn 3. At the time, Charles was on a quicker lap than his first and so too was Carlos. The session did not resume and Leclerc was thus guaranteed pole, but it also meant Sainz was unable to improve on fifth, just 13 thousandths slower than third placed Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen) and 11 behind Pierre Gasly (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/53/pierre-gasly) in fourth. The Spaniard also ended up in the barrier at turn 3, caught off guard by the Japanese driver's crash.


A fantastic pole for Charles and a great team result does not change the Scuderia's goal for tomorrow nor indeed for the rest of the season, which is to bring home as many points as possible to head the group chasing the two teams currently leading the championship.


Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc): I am very happy. I tried to take things step by step and only push in Q3 today. It seems to have worked out pretty well. I had good references - I knew where I could gain and where I could push more, and that's what I did.


After the first lap, I was reasonably happy but I did lose quite a bit at turns 4-5-6. On the second timed lap I was quite a lot stronger, but then the session was stopped by the red flag. But it's pole anyway, so I am very happy with that.


Our race pace is not as strong as that of our competitors ahead of us in the championship, so I believe it will be very difficult to keep them behind in the race. The straights are very long here, and it is easy to overtake. We will give everything, and hopefully we can have another positive surprise tomorrow.


Carlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz): A very frustrating qualifying for me again today. I am disappointed we couldn't extract all the potential of the car due to the circumstances. I was improving my lap time on the last attempt when the AlphaTauri (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/16/alphatauri) crashed in front of me. I saw the smoke from the lock up but hoped he had continued. When I saw the crash it was too late and I ended up touching the barriers. At these speeds, the outcome could have been much worse, but the car seems to be ok.


On the positive side, our pace was strong, even more than we expected before coming to Baku. Congrats to Charles for putting it on pole. Overall it's a great result for the team. Now we'll start preparing for the race and I will do my absolute best to recover tomorrow.


Laurent Mekies: Another pole for Charles, which was even more unexpected than the one two weeks ago in Monaco. We arrived in Baku believing that this would be a much more complicated weekend than the last race, but in fact our performance level was better than expected right from the start of practice, even though theoretically this track should be less suited to our car.


The team and the drivers did a great job over these past two days, improving the car for every session. Our qualifying performance, the best of any team if you look at the pair of results, is a fitting reward for that.
Carlos' crash? He was caught off guard by the smoke from Tsunoda ahead of him. These things happen and anyway, it didn't affect his result given that, because of the yellow flags, he would have had to slow down at that point on the track.


We can expect a very tough race tomorrow. Pole is not as important here as in Monaco, given that overtaking is commonplace. Yesterday, we saw that Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) and Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) were very quick over a long run
Tyre degradation will be a key factor, especially in the first stint. We will have to be ready for any eventuality, given that this race usually has all sorts of unexpected twists and turns.

Azerbaijan GP: Qualifying team notes - AlphaTauriPierre Gasly (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/53/pierre-gasly): "Honestly, it's been a pretty incredible day. Topping the session in FP3 meant I was super excited coming into Qualifying. The pace was clearly there today, and we felt strong, we've pushed all weekend and I've just really clicked with the car here in Baku. I'm really pleased with our Quali performance, I think at the end we were still in a position to fight towards the front but P4 is great and the margins to the front row were so tight. It was a fantastic effort by the whole team, and I think we can be very proud of the progress we're making. I've tried to build it up every lap here, session after session and push the limit each time and I think I've done that well this weekend. I've managed to put everything together in Q3 and we're in a really strong position starting tomorrow's race. Obviously Yuki's day didn't end as planned but he's done really well here so far this weekend, he's worked hard on building up his pace through the sessions and today he made it through to Q3 for the first time so he should be really pleased with that."

Yuki Tsunoda (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/71/yuki-tsunoda): "It's a really mixed feeling today, I've made good progress here in Azerbaijan through the weekend, which has been really positive and then I made it through to Q3 for the first time. I think there was the potential to be starting the race in a higher position, but I was just pushing too much, and it didn't pay off today, so obviously I'm disappointed and I just want to apologise to the team. Tomorrow is a new day though and I think, compared to Monaco, overtaking is a lot easier here so that, combined with a good tyre strategy, could be good for us in the race."


Jonathan Eddolls (Chief Race Engineer): "This track is often one which can throw up surprises and today was no exception. We showed a good performance yesterday so the changes to the cars for FP3 were more fine tuning, trying to account for the hotter track temperatures that we would face in FP3 and then react for a cooler Qualifying. We saw an improvement from the alterations we made and FP3 showed that we had a car capable of fighting towards the front of the tight midfield.


"We headed into Quali believing we had a chance to get both cars into Q3 if we could put it all together. Qualifying was a very busy and intense session with multiple red flags and aborted laps, which meant we had to change our plan, but both the team and drivers adapted really well to this, particularly in Q1.


"Yuki put in a fantastic lap in Q2 and both drivers made it through to Q3 for the first time this season. They both put in a great performance today, with Pierre ending in P4 and just two thousands behind Max in P3.

Yuki's first lap put him in P8 but unfortunately, he pushed a bit too hard on his second lap, meaning he locked up and has sustained damage to the front suspension from the impact. It's part of the learning experience though and the rest of this weekend he has kept his head down, built up the pace and showed a very good performance. There's some work to do on his car tonight and we'll also work on preparing both drivers ahead of the race, so we can aim to keep both cars in a point scoring position."

Azerbaijan GP: Qualifying team notes - Alfa Romeo


https://www.pitpass.com/site_graphics/icon_small_print.png (https://www.pitpass.com/public/print_article.php?fes_art_id=69887)

Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen) and Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi) will line up in P14 and P20 respectively for tomorrow's Azerbaijan Grand Prix - but it's a result that masks the team's strong performance on the streets of Baku.


Pace, there was aplenty. But on a day in which no fewer than four red flags interrupted qualifying - for five separate incidents - the end result didn't smile on Alfa Romeo (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/15/alfa-romeo) Racing ORLEN. Both Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen) and Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi) had performance on their side, but circumstances meant they were both unable to put it to use. The Italian was unable to set a time after hitting the wall at turn 15 on his first timed lap in Q1: despite the strong performance on Friday, he will line up at the bottom of the grid for the race - a position from which he won in GP2 in 2016.


Kimi performed admirably in Q2 after three red flags had resulted in all his fresh tyres being used: despite the old rubber, he looked set for a time worthy of Q3 before a final interruption of the session caused his final attempt to be aborted. To be within a second of the lead time in Q2 and matching cars on fresh tyres is reason for optimisms ahead of the race.


Tomorrow, as the cliche goes, anything can happen. With the pace we have shown - our best on a Saturday- we are in with a good shout to do well. Baku is a circuit that can catch drivers out and a Safety Car is never far - which means there's plenty to fight for from lights to flag.


Frederic Vasseur: "This has been our best qualifying performance of the year: I know this sounds strange, with one car in P14 and the other unable to set a time, but our pure pace was the best it has been on a Saturday this season. Kimi, running on used tyres, was less than a second from provisional pole at the end of Q2 and little more than 0.02 from Ricciardo, on fresh rubber. He was on a good lap and would have had a tow on the final straight, so we are confident he would have been there or thereabout for the top ten.

Antonio was unlucky to end his session so early after being in good form during yesterday's sessions, but we can be confident in our pace for tomorrow. If today's anything to go by, anything can happen tomorrow and we can fight for a good result."


Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen): "We did a good laptime even though we only had used tyres left after all the red flags in Q1, and we could have got even more without the red flag at the end of Q2. We were on a good lap and we would have had a tow, and I think we could have gone through to Q3. It's been a difficult qualifying with all the stoppages, but let's see what we can do: we seemed to be faster and faster with every lap, the car felt better than at any other point in the weekend so it feels we are going in the right direction. Of course there are still things we need to improve but the feeling in qualifying is getting better. Tomorrow anything can happen: we need to stay out of any issue at the start and see what we can get out of this race."


Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi): "It's disappointing to do a mistake like this when we looked strong. I locked up in the middle of the corner and, when that happens in a turn like that, it's very difficult to recover: I apologise to the team as we had it in us to do a good result today. At least, this is not Monaco and we can still recover and have a good race, especially if our pace is like today's. We had the speed to get in Q2 and possibly even Q3, so we will not give up: everything is possible here in Baku and we'll be ready to take the opportunity."

Azerbaijan GP: Qualifying team notes - HaasUralkali Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team drivers Mick Schumacher (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/69/mick-schumacher) and Nikita Mazepin (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/70/nikita-mazepin) qualified 17th and 18th, respectively, for Sunday's Azerbaijan Grand Prix, Round 6 of the 2021 FIA Formula 1 World Championship at Baku City Circuit, Baku.

Schumacher and Mazepin attacked Q1 exclusively on the Pirelli P Zero Red soft tire. The on-track action was halted early with a red flag stop - the Aston Martin of Lance Stroll (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/57/lance-stroll) impacting the barrier at turn 15. 14 minutes remained on the clock when the session went green. Schumacher was first to record an opening run setting a 1:44.254 with Mazepin directly behind on a 1:44.281 before a second red flag, this time for Alfa Romeo (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/15/alfa-romeo)'s Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi) - again at turn 15, saw the field return to the pits.


With fresh tires, and just nine minutes left at the second re-start, both VF-21's went to work. Schumacher failed to better his earlier time on his first run, but his final flying lap produced a 1:44.158 to earn 17th on the grid. Mazepin bagged a 1:44.238 on his opening tour and was on-pace to improve but a rear lock-up at turn three ended his second charge leaving him 18th overall.


Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc) claimed a second consecutive pole position of the season and the ninth of his Formula 1 career. Leclerc's fastest Q3 lap of 1:41.218 beat Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton) of Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) by .232 of a second.


Nikita Mazepin (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/70/nikita-mazepin): "To be honest it's the most disappointed I've been with my job since being in Formula 1. The pace has been strong from my internal team and myself all weekend. It was really annoying to make a mistake on my quick lap when the tires are only there for that one lap. Unfortunately, I haven't managed to transfer the mindset of just finishing laps, because, from where I come from, fighting for the extra half a tenth or tenth, it can mean the difference between pole or not. Obviously, we're very far from that, but I'm still trying to do my 101 percent, and today it was too much. I'm very disappointed."


Mick Schumacher (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/69/mick-schumacher): "A lot of red flags, a lot of stuff going on. Track conditions changed quite a bit too which was expected but on the other hand, unexpected for me. In general, we managed to position the car where we wanted it to but unfortunately on the last set I made a mistake at T5 which cost us some lap time. Overall, we maximized what we had and now it's up to tomorrow's race. In qualifying we've seen a massive amount of action and I think the action will be there tomorrow in the race."


Guenther Steiner: "It was again a learning session for our guys. A lot can be learned in a qualifying session like this - it was pretty exciting. The good thing is, we kept out of the crashes, and there were quite a few that happened. There's a lot to learn with things like slipstreaming at this race track. I think they've learned a lot in a very short time. Hopefully going forward, that helps them in the future. Otherwise, this was the best we could do today, and we have two cars still intact. Tomorrow we go racing."

Azerbaijan GP: Qualifying team notes - WilliamsGeorge Russell (https://www.pitpass.com/69885/drivers/66/george-russell) qualified 15th and Nicholas Latifi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/62/nicholas-latifi) 16th for the Azerbaijan Grand Prix. A colossal effort from the team saw George's car make it out for qualifying, following a power unit change necessitated by a water pump leak in FP3.

George reached Q2 for the sixth consecutive race, setting a time of 1:42.758 in a session cut short by a red flag. Nicholas set his fastest time on his first flying lap of the Q1 session, posting a 1:43.128.


Dave Robson, Head of Vehicle Performance: The tests completed yesterday, and the analysis overnight was rewarded in FP3 where we showed a good improvement from FP2. The drivers were both much happier and Nicholas was very quickly back up to speed following his issue in FP2, completing two strong runs and showing ever improving pace. George had a good first run but was unable to show his true pace in FP3 due to a rare issue with the power unit water pump. Unfortunately, there wasn't time before qualifying to change the pump on his power unit and so we refitted the unit that he ran in Monaco. No damage was done to the new power unit and although this will be checked thoroughly, we expect it to return to duty in France.


Qualifying was the complicated affair that we expected with several red flags in Q1. Whilst this cost Nicholas several attempts on new tyres, it ensured that George got out for Q1 with time to complete a variety of run plans following his power unit change after FP3. It was another great effort from the team to get his car ready.


With Stroll and Giovinazzi both crashing out of Q1, it effectively became a shootout between our drivers for the final place in Q2. George was able to build over his three timed lap run, but Nicholas used a little too much of the tyres on the first lap and was unable to better that time. George ultimately made it through at Nicholas's expense. With George having missed the opening run in Q1, he had a new set of tyres available for Q2 and completed a decent run on a relatively quiet track but unfortunately, another red flag prevented him from closing his final lap.


If today is anything to go by then tomorrow could be an action-packed race with a range of tyre strategies being deployed. We are pleased with our efforts overnight and today, and we are looking forward to an exciting day tomorrow.


George Russell (https://www.pitpass.com/69885/drivers/66/george-russell): Firstly, the mechanics did a fantastic job. I think that must be a record time for a full power unit change and getting everything sorted! Huge thanks to them. We then delivered when it mattered and I'm really happy to get into Q2. That was almost the maximum today; we capitalised on other people's mistakes so I'm happy with the overall performance.


Tomorrow is going to be really interesting. Hopefully there is a bit of action and we can make the most of it.


Nicholas Latifi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/62/nicholas-latifi): For me, it felt like the tyres were at their peak on my first lap, which is when I set my quickest time. Unfortunately, I think we got unlucky when the red and yellow flags came out because we used our three sets of tyres that we have for qualifying, but in reality, I only got to do the one representative push lap. With this kind of circuit we know that there's a high chance something like that will happen with flags, but you just don't know when they will come out and unfortunately we weren't at the right place at the right time. Overall, I think we had the pace to be faster and get through to Q2, so I'm a little disappointed, but opportunities always present themselves here, so hopefully we can take advantage of that.

Azerbaijan GP: Qualifying team notes - PirelliThe opening Q1 session was characterised by two red flag periods for separate incidents at the tricky Turn 15. A third red flag brought Q2 to an early close as well, followed by a fourth one in Q3. In total, qualifying took place over nearly an hour and a half.

All the drivers used the soft tyre from Q1 to Q3, with the exception of Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes), which chose the medium for the first runs in Q1.


Having peaked at more than 55 degrees in free practice this morning, track temperatures in the afternoon were slightly cooler - at around 46 degrees halfway through the session, with 29 degrees ambient.
Although the compounds coming to Baku this year are a step softer compared to 2019, it's still likely to be a one-stop race.


Those obliged to start on the P Zero Red soft tyre - in other words, the top 10 - are likely to use a soft-hard strategy, even though this gives much less flexibility in the pit stop window.


Another good option - which can be used by those outside the top 10 - is to use the P Zero Yellow medium and P Zero White hard compounds: especially if we experience track temperatures in excess of 50 degrees.
If those are the tyres being used, it makes sense to start on medium and then move to hard: there's quite a wide pit stop window that leaves plenty of latitude for the timing of the pit stop and the pit lane penalty here isn't huge either.


On the other hand, there's a big probability of the safety car, as all the red flag stoppages in qualifying showed. If there's a safety car period this gives the opportunity for a 'free' pit stop, so starting on the softer and faster tyre could be advantageous. Unlike Monaco though, track position isn't absolutely everything here: it's very possible to overtake.


Mario Isola: "This certainly one of the most disrupted and unpredictable qualifying sessions that we can remember! The drivers generally used the soft tyre throughout the session, as with the margins so close on this long lap, it was the safest option to be sure of getting through Q2: especially with the big risk of interruptions. This means that all the top 10 will start on the soft tomorrow, which probably locks them into a soft-hard one-stop strategy: also because we're expecting high track temperatures again for the grand prix. Those behind the top 10 might see an advantage in starting on a harder compound to run a longer first stint and gain track position or have more pit stop flexibility. As we've seen already in a hectic qualifying, this is a track where absolutely anything can happen. Four different teams in the top four on the grid underlines the close competition on this spectacular city circuit: at one point we had cars separated by just thousandths of a second after a six-kilometre lap. Congratulations to Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) and Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc) for a second consecutive pole."

FORMULA 1 AZERBAIJAN GRAND PRIX 2021 - Baku
Resultados CARRERA
Domingo, 6 de junio de 2021



Checo PÉREZ se lleva la victoria en Bakú, su primera con Red Bull. Ha hecho una carrera excelente con una buena salida y logrando mantener a Hamilton tras él después de la parada, dándole respiro a VERSTAPPEN, que tenía la victoria en su mano hasta que su neumático trasero izquierdo dijo basta. Su pena ha sido menos pena al ver a HAMILTON cometer un error en la resalida tras la bandera roja provocada por él mismo, lo que le ha llevado a terminar 15º. Además, Verstappen ha sido quien ha marcado la vuelta rápida, por lo que nadie se lleva el punto extra.

Checo ha dicho que esta victoria es muy importante porque estuvieron cerca de retirarse. Horner ha comentado que en las últimas vueltas Checo estaba teniendo problemas de presión, de ahí que le pidieran que parara el coche nada más cruzar la línea de meta por precaución.

Grandísima carrera también para Sebastian VETTEL, con un gran ritmo y realizando buenos adelantamientos. Muy merecida su segunda posición de hoy.

Como muy merecida ha sido la tercera posición de Pierre GASLY, otro que ha tenido un gran fin de semana. Ha sabido mantenerse en el podio cuando en la resalida Leclerc intentó arrebatárselo.

LECLERC ha cruzado la meta en 4ª posición. Se ha visto que ayer tuvo suerte al conseguir la pole pero en carrera no tiene nada que hacer contra los Mercedes y los Red Bull.

5ª plaza para NORRIS, que ha tenido una carrera que ha ido de menos a más.

Tras él ha cruzado la meta Fernando ALONSO, que ha podido remontar plazas gracias a su excelente resalida, mostrando que para nada se le ha olvidado adelantar. Ha comentado que antes de la resalida habló con el equipo y decidió ir a por todas, aunque tocara el muro. Se le ve con mucha más confianza, esperemos que siga evolucionando así.

TSUNODA no la ha liado hoy pero se le sigue viendo bastante impredecible. Se va de Bakú con la 7ª posición.

Carlos SAINZ ha tenido una carrera irregular. Ha cometido varios errores a pesar de los cuales ha sido 8º. No estaba muy contento con su rendimiento.

La zona de puntos la cierran RICCIARDO y RAIKKONNEN.

Sobre lo ocurrido al final de la carrera con la bandera roja a falta de tres vueltas, tengo sentimientos encontrados.

Por un lado prefiero mil veces un reincio de carrera (sobre todo en parado) que un final de carrera detrás de coche de seguridad. Lo que ya no me parece tan bien es que los coches puedan hacer cambios bajo bandera roja porque eso me parece que es adulterar la carrera por más que la haga emocionante. Esas dos vueltas nos ha permitido ver el fallo de Hamilton, la buena defensa de Gasly y una gran salida de Alonso, todo en favor del espectáculo pero, como digo, adultera el resultado.

Por más que me guste ver a Fernando 6º, esa no es su posición ni de coña. Durante la carrera no se le ha visto buen ritmo y sólo el salir con el cuchillo entre los dientes le ha permitido acabar donde ha acabado, mérito suyo, por supuesto. Pero me temo que si en vez de 2 vueltas hubiesen tenido que dar 6 ó 7, otro gallo cantaría. Esperemos que el coche de un pequeño saltito porque por fin he visto al Fernando de antes, el hambriento de buenos resultados.

Y sobre los dos reventones de Pirelli, creo que sus cálculos no han sido correctos y con el de Max se han ido por la pata abajo y le han dicho a Masi que parara la carrera para evitar algún otro posible reventón, lo que les habría dejado en muy, muy, muy, muy mal lugar. Aquí viene la parte que no me gusta de la bandera roja y que considero una adulteración de la carrera. Si los equipos querían arriesgar después de ver lo ocurrido con Stroll y Verstappen, era su problema.

Si vemos los cálculos que los de Pirelli tenían hechos, la mejor estrategia era hacer una primera tanda de 11 a 15 vueltas con el blando y las 36 - 40 últimas vueltas hacerlas con el medio.


https://pbs.twimg.com/media/E3L57DqWYAA_8mm.jpg:large




¿Qué hizo Verstappen? Pues hizo una primera tanda de 12 vueltas con el blando y montó el duro. En la vuelta 30 reventó el neumático de Stroll y rodaron tras el coche de seguridad durante creo 5 vueltas, lo que le permitió desgastar menos el neumático. Luego, en la vuelta 45-46 reventó su neumático.


https://pbs.twimg.com/media/E3N843CXEAIyzMK.jpg:large





Además, hay que tener en cuenta que Verstappen rodó prácticamente siempre en aire limpio, lo que hizo que castigara todavía menos los neumáticos.

Lobato y cia dijeron que lo de Stroll fue un aviso para los demás, pero yo no lo veo así por lo que he comentado, a lo que hay que añadir que Stroll llevaba el duro en la salida, por lo que sus vueltas fueron con mayor carga de combustible.

En fin, todo este rollo para decir que los de Pirelli se han colado en este GP y que a los equipos los ha pillado desprevenidos porque los cálculos de la misma Pirelli no preveían algo así.

Ale, ya sus dejo en pás. :roto2rie: :roto2rie: :cunaooooo:

Seb: "I congratulated @Charles_Leclerc (https://twitter.com/Charles_Leclerc) on his pole because he made such a great lap. I told him that he should look in his rear mirrors because I am coming. He smiled. He was there in parc ferme to congratulate me and I told him [see I told you]. Maybe I should text him more."

Según Pirelli, lo que le ha ocurrido a Stroll y a Verstappen tiene pinta de ser por culpa de restos en la pista :sarcasmo: y que han encotrado un tajo en el neumático de Hamilton :sarcasmo:.


Mario Isola: “We need to clearly establish the facts behind the incidents involving Lance Stroll and Max Verstappen to fully understand what happened. What we can say for now is that there was also a cut found on Hamilton’s tyre and that it's the rear-right tyre that actually works harder than the rear-left here. No warnings or vibrations were detected and none of the other tyres of a similar age or older showed any signs of excess wear. So we can not exclude that the damage was caused by an external factor, although these things shouldn’t happen and we can understand the need for answers.”



:sarcasmo: En fin. :sarcasmo: :sarcasmo: :sarcasmo: :sarcasmo:

GP do Azerbaijão – 6ªEtapa do Mundial de Formula 1 – 2021Classificação do sábado foi uma previa do que seria o domingo, uma classificação confusa que acabou tendo 4 bandeiras vermelhas, a pole acabou nas mãos de um piloto da Ferrari.

Antes de começar o Q1, os boxes estavam igual ao transito, muitos pilotos queriam sair de uma vez só para já marcarem a volta. Parece que todos eles já previam o que poderia acontecer de confusão. Seguido a programação, Norris, Perez, Verstappen, Hamilton, Bottas e Gasly deixaram para sair 1 minuto depois.

A 14 minutos e 20 segundos do final, Lance Stroll encontrou o muro em uma das curvas mais difíceis do circuito e acabou provocando a primeira bandeira vermelha da classificação. Foram longos 10 minutos para retirar o carro do piloto da Aston Martin.

Só depois de retirarem o carro do Canadense é que o treino recomeçou, Esse tempo foi propício para a Williams consertar o problema no carro de George Russell que aconteceu entre o 3ªtreino livre e a sessão de classificação.

Depois da volta de aquecimento, os pilotos finalmente fizeram as suas primeiras marcas, Sainz faz 1:42.121, mas foi superado pelos dois pilotos da Red Bull, Verstappen com 1:41.760 e Perez com 1:41.968 assumiram as 2 primeiras posições. Até que a 9:22 do final, a bandeira vermelha foi acionada, tudo graças a Antonio Giovinazzi que foi para o muro.

Foram mais uns 10 minutos para retirar o carro do piloto do piloto italiano. Depois disso, a classificação recomeçou com apenas 10 pilotos com tempos marcados: Verstappen, Perez, Sainz jr., Leclerc, Ocon, Vettel, Alonso, Russell, Schumacher e Mazepin.

Isso significava que Hamilton, Bottas e Norris precisavam marcar uma volta ou seriam eliminados. Por falar em Mclaren, Lando Norris seria investigado por violar alguma regra da bandeira vermelha.

Hamilton e Bottas marcaram tempos que garantiram lugares para o Q2, Já Lando Norris ficou com um tempo perigoso para classificar. A 3 minutos do final, Russell, Schumacher e Mazepin vinham sendo eliminados além de Stroll e Giovinazzi. No final, Russell com a Williams consegue um tempo melhor e se classifica para o Q2.

Ao terminar o Q1, Lewis Hamilton foi o mais rápido com 1:41.545.

Vendo o que aconteceu, vários pilotos foram de cara para a pista buscarem tempo. Bottas e Hamilton saíram 1 minuto depois. Em sua primeira volta, Perez marca 1:41.630 e supera Sainz jr. e Verstappen. A 10:40 do final, Leclerc chegou perto da liderança, marcando uma volta 29 milésimos mais lento do que a volta do seu companheiro de equipe.

Os pilotos da Mercedes demoraram uma volta a mais para abrirem suas voltas rápidas. Hamilton marcou o segundo tempo com 1:41.634 e Bottas marcou o 7ºtempo com 1:42.106, num final de semana que o finlandês teve um desempenho estranho, Afinal das contas se trata do vencedor da última corrida no Azerbaijão.

Verstappen foi para mais uma volta e acabou assumindo a ponta com 1:41.625, apenas 5 milésimos de frente para Perez e 9 milésimos a frente de Hamilton. A 5 minutos e 30 segundos do final estavam classificando: Verstappen, Perez, Hamilton, Leclerc, Sainz jr., Norris, Gasly, Bottas, Alonso e Vettel. Já Ocon, Tsunoda, Ricciardo, Raikkonen e Russell precisavam marcar volta rápida para entrar nos Top 10.
http://portalsportszone.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2021/06/F1_baku_2021-87-1024x682.jpgYuki Tsunoda marcou um ótimo quarto tempo. Nos minutos finais, todo mundo foi para a pista para buscar tempo para se garantir ou para entrar na zona de classificação. No caso do Bottas era para melhorar sua marca, no caso do Ricciardo era de buscar tempo para sair da 13ª para entrar no Top 10, mas o australiano não teve um final feliz, ele acabou mesmo é indo para o muro. Foi essa batida que provocou a bandeira vermelha a 1:29 do final e determinou o final do Q2.

Vettel da Aston Martin, Ocon da Alpine, Ricciardo da Mclaren, Raikkonen da Alfa Romeo e Russell da Williams acabaram eliminados. Verstappen acabou sendo o mais rápido, com Perez, Hamilton, Tsunoda e Sainz jr.. Os 5 primeiros separados por apenas 0.05 segundos de diferença. Leclerc, Norris, Gasly, Bottas e Alonso completam a lista dos classificados.

Assim que começou o Q2, vários pilotos entraram na pista, Verstappen foi para a pista 1 minuto depois (Geralmente o que os favoritos fazem, saem por último dos boxes). Gasly e Tsunoda ficaram nos boxes.

A 8 minutos do final, Leclerc marca 1:41.218, um grande tempo, mas que poderia ser superado por Verstappen, mas acabou não melhorando, ficou em 2º com 1:41.563, pouco a frente de Sainz jr. com 1:41.576.

Hamilton e Bottas fizeram mais uma volta de aquecimento para fazerem suas voltas pra valer. Em sua volta rápida, Lewis Hamilton marcou o segundo tempo com a marca de 1:41.450, Bottas ficou bem longe de Lewis, marcando 1:42.659. Depois disso, todos foram para os boxes, enquanto que Pierre Gasly e Yuki Tsunoda foram para a pista marcarem um tempo. A Volta do Gasly foi bem rápida e levou o francês a 4ªposição, Tsunoda acabou subindo para a 7ªposição.

A 2 minutos e 30 segundos do final, todo mundo foi pra pista numa tentativa final. Porém, ninguém teve a chance de melhorar, Batida de Tsunoda e Leclerc acabou provocando a 4ªbandeira amarela e o término da sessão antecipa.

Ao seu lado, Lewis Hamilton conseguiu levar a Mercedes a primeira fila em um fim de semana que não estava com um carro bom, principalmente na sexta-feira.

Max Verstappen larga na terceira posição, um frustrante 3ºlugar depois de ver suas chances de conquistar a pole position serem bem consideradas, como o principal favorito a conquistar essa pole. Ao seu lado, o francês Pierre Gasly surpreendeu e levou a Alpha Tauri a 4ªposição, igualando seu melhor grid da carreira.


Carlos Sainz jr. abre a terceira fila, com um 5ªtempo que foi bem próximo do Verstappen e do Gasly, Ao contraio de Sergio Perez, seu companheiro na terceira fila (Largando na 6ªposição). ficando a 4 décimos do companheiro de equipe, Gasly e do próprio piloto espanhol da Ferrari.
Na quarta-fila, largam Yuki Tsunoda da Alpha Tauri e Fernando Alonso da Alpine, os dois se beneficiaram (Além de Sergio Perez) da punição de 3 posições de Lando Norris da Mclaren, que fez o piloto inglês caiu da 6ª para a 9ªposição. Valtteri Bottas completou a 5ªfila, com um desempenho bem abaixo do que se esperava dele e da Mercedes.

O dia seguinte se mostrou uma corrida monótona no começo, mas nas últimas 20 voltas tudo acabou se transformado e a Etapa de Baku virou uma corrida maluca. Dessa vez, nem Lewis e nem Verstappen conseguiram vencer a corrida que teve Leclerc na pole position.

Na largada, o piloto monegasco manteve a frente de Hamilton e Verstappen. Quem fez uma grande largada foi o mexicano Sergio Perez que passou Carlos Sainz jr. na primeira curva e na curva seguinte, passou Pierre Gasly e assumiu a 4ªposição, ótimo começo de corrida do Checo. Alonso, Tsunoda, Vettel e Bottas completavam as 10 primeiras posições. George Russell fez sua primeira parada após a primeira volta (Certamente teve algum dano na sua asa ou um furo de pneu).
http://portalsportszone.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2021/06/F1_baku_2021-113-1024x683.jpg


Hamilton vai pra cima de Leclerc, na reta de quase 2 km de distância, o inglês conseguiu pegar o vácuo do piloto da Ferrari, colocou por dentro e acabou tomando a liderança no final da 2ªvolta. Logo depois, Verstappen começou a caça ao piloto da Ferrari, mas diferente de Lewis, Max não conseguiu passar na primeira tentativa. Leclerc tinha também um carro rápido e também procurava recuperar a liderança, tentava alcançar Hamilton.

A luta entre Leclerc e Verstappen durou até a entrada da 7ªvolta. O líder do campeonato pegou o vácuo do piloto da Ferrari e acabou tomando a segunda posição. Na Volta seguinte, Sergio Perez passa Leclerc e assume a 3ºcolocado. A verdade é que a Ferrari não tinha um carro suficientemente rápido para enfrentar Mercedes e Red Bull em condições normais. Tsunoda passou Alonso na 7ªVolta. Na volta seguinte, Alonso e Norris foram para a parada.

Hamilton vinha 1.3 segundos à frente de Verstappen que tentava tirar essa vantagem que seu rival construiu. Não muito longe vinha Perez em 3º apenas 3.1 segundos atrás do líder. Leclerc em 4º e Gasly em 5º vinham até que próximos dos 3 primeiros. Já Sainz jr. em 6º já vinha um pouco mais longe, disputando a 7ªposição, Tsunoda e Vettel já vinham a 13 segundos da liderança. Bottas e Norris completavam as 10 primeiras posições.

Leclerc e Tsunoda pararam na 10ªVolta. Enquanto isso, Verstappen vai pra cima de Hamilton, tendo pneus 3 voltas mais novos do que os pneus de Lewis. Perez em 3º vinha chegando nos 2 primeiros colocados. Carlos Sainz jr. parou na 11ªvolta. Quando voltou, por infelicidade o espanhol erra a curva 8, mas evita a batida e volta a prova, mas perdeu muitas posições.

Hamilton foi para a parada na 12ªvolta e Verstappen parou na volta seguinte. Com um trabalho bem mais rápido da Red Bull (parada 2 segundos mais rápido que a parada da Mercedes), Max Verstappen voltou à frente de Lewis Hamilton. Sergio Perez fez a volta mais rápida da prova, mas mesmo com pneus que pareciam estarem em boas condições, Perez foi chamado para fazer a parada nos boxes e voltou em 2º, a frente de Hamilton.

Vettel assumiu a liderança, com 3.6 segundos a frente de Verstappen que tinha em Perez um aliado para não permitir que Hamilton ameaçasse a sua posição. Enquanto isso, Carlos Sainz jr. chegou em Antonio Giovinazzi, uma briga valendo a 13ªposição.

Vettel lidera por 4 voltas até que na volta 18, o piloto da Aston Martin parou para fazer a troca de pneus e voltou na 7ªposição. Verstappen assumiu a liderança, seguido de Hamilton e Perez. Mais atrás vinham Lance Stroll que não tinha feito a parada, Pierre Gasly em 5º com a Alpha Tauri, Charles Leclerc com a Ferrari, Vettel com a Aston Martin, Yuki Tsunoda da Alpha Tauri, Lando Norris da Mclaren e Valtteri Bottas da Mercedes completavam as 10 primeiras posições.

Naquele momento da prova, não tinha quase nenhuma briga por posição, nenhuma grande disputa, apenas algumas tentativas de disputa, como a do Bottas tentando chegar no Lando Norris (briga pela 9ªposição) e a briga de Hamilton para tentar brigar pela 2ªposição com Sergio Perez.

Na 23ªVolta, Sainz jr. supera Giovinazzi e assumiu a 13ªposição, ainda estava longe de entrar na zona de pontuação. 2 voltas depois, Nikita Mazepin acaba errando a trajetória da curva, mas evita a batida e consegue voltar a prova, quase 1 volta atrás de Verstappen que coloca volta no final dessa mesma volta.

Enquanto Verstappen vinha começando a abrir uma boa vantagem para Perez e Hamilton, Sainz jr. supera Alonso na batalha dos pilotos espanhóis e sobe para 12ªposição. Leclerc tenta se recuperar e vinha tirando a vantagem de Pierre Gasly. Porém, Sebastian Vettel vinha também chegando nessa disputa.
http://portalsportszone.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2021/06/F1_baku_2021-48-1024x683.jpgA corrida continuava sem muitas ultrapassagens, mas o destino dessa corrida começa a mudar, infelizmente Lance Stroll teve problemas em seu carro e acabou indo para o muro provocando o primeiro safety car na corrida. Tá na cara que pela transmissão alguma coisa aconteceu e não foi erro de condução do piloto Canadense não, meu palpite é que o pneu que tinha 31 voltas de uso não aguentou e estourou em plena reta, uma situação bem perigosa que não acarretou nada de grave com o piloto.

Mesmo com os pneus desgastados, a maioria dos pilotos ficou na pista, somente 4 pilotos fizeram parada de troca de pneus: Alonso, Giovinazzi, Russell e Mick Schumacher, esse último acabou parando seu carro metros depois, os mecânicos da Haas tiveram que leva-lo para religar o carro para ele voltar a corrida.

Na relargada (36ªVolta), Verstappen largou muito bem e abriu vantagem sobree Perez, Hamilton e os demais. Já Vettel teve um recomeço brilhante, passando a Leclerc numa manobra muito arriscada (com o alemão indo no limite da pista por dentro). Enquanto isso, Sainz jr., Ricciardo e Raikkonen superaram Bottas na relargada, assim como foi um fim de semana ruim de Hamilton em Mônaco, também pode se dizer que o finlandês teve um final de semana terrível em Baku.

Verstappen começava a abrir cada vez mais e mais vantagem para Perez que segurava muito bem os ataques de Lewis Hamilton. Vettel em 4º vinha tentando chegar nos dois, com esperanças de brigar pelo pódio. Norris parte para cima de Tsunoda na busca pela 8ªposição.

Verstappen abria cada vez mais, tudo encaminhava para uma nova vitória do piloto da Red Bull. Mas a portas de entrar na 47ªvolta, problema de pneus acabou levando Max Verstappen para o muro. Safety Car entrou na pista, mas 2 voltas depois a prova é interrompida e os pilotos foram para os boxes esperarem a limpeza da pista.

Após 33 minutos de paralização, os pilotos voltaram para a pista e alinharam para uma nova largada a 2 voltas do final, com Perez e Hamilton na primeira fila, Vettel e Gasly na segunda fila, Leclerc e Tsunoda na terceira fila e depois em ordem: Norris, Sainz jr, Ricciardo, Alonso, Raikkonen, Giovinazzi, Bottas, Russell, Latifi, Schumacher e Mazepin. Russell já não conseguiu partir, ele acabou tendo problemas e indo para os boxes de onde não voltou mais.

Na relargada, Hamilton largou muito bem, mas acabou indo de uma possível vitória para passar reto na curva 1 e cair para a última posição. Perez que poderia ter perdido a corrida manteve a ponta, Vettel em uma incrível 2ªposição e Gasly e Leclerc disputam um lugar no pódio. Lá atrás, muita briga pelas posições intermediárias.
http://portalsportszone.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2021/06/F1_baku_2021-94-1024x575.jpgSergio Perez foi até o final e conquistou a sua segunda vitória na Formula 1 e a primeira pela Red Bull, além de pular para a terceira posição no campeonato acabou ajudando a Red Bull a se consolidar na liderança do campeonato de construtores.

Sebastian Vettel fez uma grande corrida pela segunda vez e conquistou o primeiro pódio da Aston Martin na categoria, uma segunda posição em uma corrida precisa e ao mesmo tempo agressivo quando precisou e isso o levou da 11ªposição na largada para 2ªposição ao final da prova.

Pierre Gasly segurou o 3ºlugar e levou seu primeiro pódio da temporada e o 3º da carreira, outro que fez uma grande corrida. Charles Leclerc não conseguiu manter a performance da classificação, após ser pole não teve um carro para briga pela vitória e acabou ficando em 4ºlugar, posição essa que teve que segurar no final do ataque de Lando Norris que pouco apareceu na corrida, mas sem cometer erros acabou o dia na 5ªposição. O piloto da Mclaren é o único piloto a pontuar em todas as corridas da temporada.

Fernando Alonso fez um grande final de corrida e acabou muito bem colocado, em 6ºlugar, marcando alguns pontos para a Alpine que ainda não esta mostrando o desempenho que se espera dela. Yuki Tsunoda acabou com o melhor resultado na Formula 1, com uma boa 7ªposição (Se não brilhou como Gasly, pelo menos fez muito bem seu papel). Carlos Sainz jr. apesar do erro no decorrer da corrida conseguiu salvar uns pontos ao chegar na 8ªposição.

Daniel Ricciardo ficou abaixo da média com a 9ªposição e Kimi Raikkonen marcou o 2ºponto da Alfa Romeo e ficou a frente de Antonio Giovinazzi. A Alfa Romeo tem um carro com potencial para crescer, mas ainda não consegue confrontar com as equipes medias de igual para igual.

Valtteri Bottas teve um final de semana para esquecer, não conseguiu extrair velocidade (E eu acredito que algo aconteceu no carro, pois nenhum piloto de alto nível teria um final de semana tão desastroso por incompetência) e acabou o dia em 12º, a Mercedes nessas duas corrida parece que se perdeu com seus dois pilotos e principalmente como equipe, marcando apenas 7 pontos nas duas corridas e permitindo perder a liderança do campeonato tanto nos pilotos como nos construtores.

Lewis Hamilton com o erro acabou ficando em 15º e Pasmem! Atrás de Mick Schumacher e Nikita Mazepin com a Haas, só numa corrida como essas para acabar levando o heptacampeão do mundo a uma posição como essa. Nicholas Latifi ficou em 16º, ele foi punido em 30 segundos por ter ido pela pista quando a ordem era para o piloto seguir o safety car na 2ªbandeira amarela (Antes da paralisação). Ou seja, por dentro dos boxes.

Impresiones de los equipos tras la prueba:

Azerbaijan GP: Race team notes - HaasUralkali Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team drivers Mick Schumacher (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/69/mick-schumacher) and Nikita Mazepin (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/70/nikita-mazepin) classified 13th and 14th respectively at the Azerbaijan Grand Prix, Round 6 of the 2021 FIA Formula 1 World Championship, held Sunday at the Baku City Circuit.

Both drivers opted for Pirelli P Zero Red soft tires for the start and avoided trouble to hold positions 16 and 17 respectively. Schumacher came in on lap eight for White hard tires while Mazepin followed suit one lap later. A Safety Car period, caused by a high-speed accident for Lance Stroll (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/57/lance-stroll), prompted both drivers to come in for another set of soft tires, though a problem with the front-left delayed Schumacher. However, the race was then stopped after 49 laps when Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen) suffered a suspected tire failure along the pit straight.


Schumacher and Mazepin took the standing restart on soft tires from 16th and 17th and made gains across the two-lap sprint to the checkered flag. The rookies raced each other to the finish line, with Schumacher registering 13th and Mazepin 14th, separated by just 0.074s. It marked the best Formula 1 career results for both drivers.


In a dramatic conclusion Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) Racing's Sergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez) claimed his second career victory, ahead of Aston Martin's Sebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel), with AlphaTauri (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/16/alphatauri)'s Pierre Gasly (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/53/pierre-gasly) third.


Nikita Mazepin (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/70/nikita-mazepin): "Well, the race itself was not bad. It was a bit annoying those as certain things made us fall backwards - but pace was there. We were experimenting with something as I had to manage the brakes from the beginning because they were overheating. I had to change my brake bias, and because of the change I was prone to locking. I almost drove into a wall which cost me a lot of time. The race was stop-start and then it came to life again. The main thing is I'm just a little bit upset about losing my position to my teammate on the main straight. It is what it is, but I think our finishing position is a nice number for the team, but obviously some unexpected situations happened with the other drivers which enabled us to get that position. Overall, it's quite positive."


Mick Schumacher (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/69/mick-schumacher): "I think it was difficult for everyone. Tire degradation seemed higher out there than we expected. We came in for an extra pit stop to go on the C5 and it felt good but then the session was red flagged. It was definitely not easy but we were close to the points and these are the kind of races that we have to use to our advantage and stay in the race. We managed to do that, we were fighting and you see a little light at the end of the tunnel."


Guenther Steiner: "Obviously it was an exciting race today, on one way or another, or even in all ways. In the end we had our best result of the year, which I'm very happy about for everybody. For where we are at the moment it's very difficult to get this result. Everybody worked really hard and just due to that - it happened. Obviously, there was a situation on the straight, that was all resolved, and we've cleared the air.

There was some misunderstanding, but we're fine and all moving on from it."

Azerbaijan GP: Race team notes - Aston MartinSebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel): "I am over the moon and P2 means a great deal to all of us. We did not expect to be on the podium, but we made great progress through the weekend, and the car had strong race pace. Yesterday was challenging [due to the red flag in qualifying], but I was relaxed and confident going into the race. The key was being able to start with a free choice of tyres in P11. It meant we could use a new set of softs to make up two places at the start and then run longer to overcut Yuki [Tsunoda]. It gave us a platform for the second half of the race and put us in a position to take advantage. I felt good in the car, and combined with on-track events and strategy, we were able to get a really special result."

Lance Stroll (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/57/lance-stroll): "I am frustrated not to finish the race, but I am OK. We were on course to score good points by running much longer before the pit stops and overcutting a lot of cars. That proved it was the right call to start on the hard tyres because we had good pace throughout the first stint and the race was coming to us. I am not sure what happened to cause me to spin on the straight because there was no sign of any issues, so we need to investigate. It has been a challenging weekend for me, but there are positives to take, especially our race pace, and, of course, the podium for Sebastian. Huge congratulations to the whole team."


Otmar Szafnauer, CEO & Team Principal: "Lance suffered a DNF through no fault of his own, having made very impressive progress in the early laps. He was soon running in the points, making the overcut strategy work well, and was driving superbly on hard tyres when it all came to an end for him in a spectacular way on lap 31. We are investigating the cause of the accident, together with Pirelli. Sebastian also drove extremely well, making up two places on lap one, running a long stint on soft tyres and thereby jumping [Yuki] Tsunoda during the pit stops, and holding seventh place at the halfway point. Then, when Lance was very sadly eliminated, Sebastian moved up to sixth. He then nailed the Safety Car restart, duly passing Charles [Leclerc] for fifth, following that by a great move on Pierre [Gasly] to take fourth. When Max [Verstappen] retired, that became third, then second when Lewis [Hamilton] overshot Turn One from the second standing start: a brilliant result for everyone in our team and the first ever podium for Aston Martin in World Championship Formula One history. In summary, then, both Lance and Sebastian showed today that we have the race pace to compete at the very front of the midfield, or better, and that is what both of them will be aiming to do as the rest of the season unfolds."

Azerbaijan GP: Race team notes - AlpineAlpine F1 Team scored eight points from the 2021 Azerbaijan Grand Prix thanks to a stunning final two laps by Fernando Alonso (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/1/fernando-alonso) that saw the Spaniard climb four places to finish sixth position at the chequered flag. Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon) retired after suffering a loss of power earlier in the race.

Fernando produced a brilliant final two laps following a late race restart that left the Spaniard leaving Baku with his best result in Formula 1 since the Australian Grand Prix in 2018.


For the race start Fernando and Esteban launched off their grid positions well with both drivers gaining places during the opening exchanges of the 306.049km race distance. By the end of lap one, Fernando was in seventh with his teammate just outside the points in eleventh.


Just a few laps later Esteban's day was brought to an abrupt end on lap 4 after he suffered a sudden loss of power that forced him to box his A521 and retire from the race.


In the sole remaining car, Fernando was one of the first to switch to the more durable Hard compound and decided to pit on lap 7. Most of the field starting on Soft tyres followed suit just a few laps later - and with the order chopping and changing - the Spaniard eventually stabilised his position just outside the top ten in twelfth.


A timely safety car was then brought out on lap 31 for Lance Stroll (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/57/lance-stroll)'s incident on the main straight, allowing Fernando to pit for fresh Soft tyres once the pitlane was re-opened.


With fresher rubber than those ahead, Fernando gained a few places and targeted the top ten positions but couldn't make inroads on Daniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo)'s McLaren (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/5/mclaren) who was holding onto tenth place. The result looked set before a red flag was waved for Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen)'s crash, bringing the entire field into the pitlane and throwing the last two laps into a pure sprint to the finish.


After a lengthy break the session resumed for a standing restart. Fitted with scrubbed Soft tyres, Fernando saved his best till the end and put on a driving masterclass. He first carved his way past several cars into turn one, before a brave overtake on Yuki Tsunoda (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/71/yuki-tsunoda) on the outside of turn five to storm home to sixth position around the Baku City Circuit.


Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon): "I didn't seem to catch a break here, it's very tricky obviously and we had a pressure loss and had to retire the car very early on. We had a good start and I was in front of both McLarens and fighting with those around us. I was doing my race and it was going well and the pace was there for the top ten, which Fernando showed in the end. It was not our weekend, that's clear, but we will turn the page and look forward to the next one, the French Grand Prix. It's going to be an awesome one for me, I can't wait to race there again."


Fernando Alonso (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/1/fernando-alonso): "I am happy for the team that we took some good points from this weekend, I felt we deserved it after a challenging weekend. The final laps were a lot of fun and we tried to attack and be aggressive to recover some places. The weekend was quite solid for us but we did lack a little bit of pace during the race. So we need to review that but I am happy with the day in the end and we'll look to take this forward into France."


Marcin Budkowski, Executive Director: "The race didn't start well with Esteban having to stop with a power unit problem and Fernando's race pace was not competitive, for which we need to understand the reasons. Overall it wasn't a great afternoon but we can be glad that the two drivers who had issues were fine and it did give us some exciting action after the restart. The heart-warming positive was some Fernando magic to regain four positions and finish P6, which is a great reward for everyone's hard work.

He's back in a very competitive state and we now need to work together to get back on form at the next race in France."

Azerbaijan GP: Race team notes - Alfa RomeoAlfa Romeo (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/15/alfa-romeo) Racing ORLEN claimed their second points finish in a row in an Azerbaijan Grand Prix that kept most of the thrills for the closing stages. Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen) and Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi) delivered an attacking performance from the start, making up places and challenging for the top ten from the very beginning, with the Finn eventually finishing in tenth to add a point to the team's tally - and open his personal account for the season in the process.

Starting from the very back of the grid, Antonio made a strong start to climb all the way to P15, right behind Kimi. A strategic call to pit him after just two laps, to fit hard tyres, paid off as Antonio could then climb two further positions as his rivals pitted, with Kimi - starting on medium tyres on an alternative strategy - in P15. A safety car, brought in due to an accident to Lance Stroll (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/57/lance-stroll), allowed the team to call Antonio in for another set of hard tyres but, just as the race was coming to an uneventful close, a red flag for Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen)'s crash allowed the whole field to mount fresh soft tyres for a two-lap sprint to the flag.
At the restart, Kimi kept his cool to go from 11th to 10th, the final points-paying position, while Antonio, who had made up places with a good getaway, got delayed at turn two and eventually crossed the line in P11, just outside the points. After a challenging Saturday, the team showed resilience and good pace to make up as many positions as possible and bring home another good point. It's a performance that encourages everyone, both trackside and in Hinwil, and gives us a confidence boost as we gear up for the next races in the calendar.


Frederic Vasseur, Team Principal: "We can be happy with bringing a point home, especially as we displayed good pace with both cars from start to finish. We were starting in far from ideal positions, but everyone in the team did a good job to allow us to fight for points until the final laps: to finish in the top ten for the second race running is a reward for clean driving, a strategy that allowed both drivers to be in a fighting position and some good stops. At the restart, we had to play our cards smartly as everyone was going to take some risks, but in the end we managed to come away with a good point. We have once again shown the progress we have made and how we're in the position to be fighting for top tens regularly, but there's still work to be done. We are confident and the last few races have really encouraged us, so we can keep pushing towards our objective."


Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen): "Not a lot happened in my race until the last two laps, so it's good to bring home a point. Overtaking proved surprisingly difficult, we were able to catch up with the cars ahead of us relatively easily but we couldn't make the move. The restart after the red flag was quite hectic, we could have been better but it could have also gone badly wrong so we'll take the point. I don't think we could have done more, in the end."


Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi): "I had a great start and this allowed me to be back in the battle for the points from the start. It wasn't an easy race as I had a small issue with the brakes, which is not ideal on a track like this, but my pace was quite good anyway. We made an early stop to undercut some of our rivals and after that, it was a bit quiet until the red flag. At the restart, I gained some positions on turn one but I made contact with Ricciardo at the second corner and my car went into anti-stall. I think we got all we could out of this race, especially starting from last, and we ended up so close to the points. Many things happened today, it was quite a crazy race in the end, but we need to be happy as we got to score another point with Kimi, the second race in a row for our team."

Azerbaijan GP: Race team notes - FerrariWhile yesterday's qualifying result far exceeded the team's expectations going into the race weekend, the outcome of the race, which as usual here was action-packed from start to finish, with Charles finishing fourth and Carlos eighth, is somewhat disappointing. In Friday's free practice it was evident the two teams fighting for the championship had a clearly quicker pace. But given the opportunities that the race could throw up, it seemed it might be a great chance to make the most of the advantage we had secured over them on Saturday.

The team leaves Azerbaijan having proved to be very competitive in qualifying and with the satisfaction of moving up one place in the Constructors' classification into third. However, the gap to those now behind is very small and definitely does not reflect the level of competitiveness of the team seen in the past two races.


All the Baku weekend data will now be analysed back in Maranello in order to maximise the potential of the SF21, especially in the races, starting with the next one, the seventh round of the season, the French Grand Prix, which takes place on Sunday 20 June at Le Castellet.


Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc): Before arriving in Baku, P4 was more or less where we could expect to finish the race. The first surprise of the weekend was our pole position. A second surprise was that some of our competitors in the midfield were extremely quick today.


Despite starting at the front, we knew we could well be overtaken by the cars of the two front running teams, which is what happened. After the first stop, I tried to do the best job possible. I had a lockup after the restart following the first safety car. Continuing with two flat spots was the most difficult part of the race. I really thought I wouldn't make it to the end.


Then we had the red flag, and I thought about the podium. But unfortunately, we didn't' make it. Seb did an incredible job - congratulations to him. The same goes for Pierre, it was a hard fight with him at the end!
We will keep working and pushing in the right direction.


Carlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz): Not the race I was hoping for today. I didn't have the same feeling with the car that I had had all weekend. Every time I was on cold tyres - at both starts, at the restart and after the pit stop - I struggled a lot with front locking and with the brakes. That led to a costly mistake which compromised my whole race.


In the end, I managed to get back in the points but I'm not happy with the result. We need to understand the reasons behind those issues and try to improve for the upcoming races. We've got some time now to go to Maranello and work on it, so I'm sure we'll come back stronger in France.


Mattia Binotto: It was a difficult race that didn't live up to our expectations, given how qualifying went yesterday. We know that, in order to reach our goals, we not only have to improve our car, we must also do everything perfectly in every area and that wasn't the case today.


On the plus side this weekend, we took our second pole position of the season and we have moved up to third in the Constructors' classification. The gap to those behind is small and definitely smaller than it could have been. However, we have to move on from this and see it as further motivation to improve in every aspect of our work.

Azerbaijan GP: Race team notes - Red BullSergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez): "We love Baku! It feels amazing to get my first win with Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull). The Team did a tremendous job and I want to thank Mr Mateschitz for this great opportunity and giving me the seat. I feel very sorry for Max because he deserved the win and a 1-2 for the Team would've been very enjoyable. It was a crazy rollercoaster of a race, we were basically flat out from the very first lap and I had Lewis behind pushing me so I couldn't breathe, it was very challenging but we kept our focus. Everything worked perfectly today apart from the restart at the end where I just had no grip. I thought I cannot lose this race two laps from the flag so I broke as late as I could into Turn 1 and then I saw Lewis locking up and go straight on into the run off. It just shows how on the limit we are, the speeds we are doing are tremendous and I am sorry for Lewis because it's very painful when these things happen but we are all vulnerable to mistakes. We have to enjoy today, our pace was great and we have a very good race car. We are working flat out and giving our best every week, it's only race six and there's more to come from me, the relationship with Max and the Team is great and there's still a long way to go in this championship."

Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen): "To retire from the lead of the race so close to the finish is pretty frustrating. I didn't feel anything strange with the car and then suddenly the left rear went and I was in the wall quite hard. It's not a nice place to crash and we don't know the exact cause yet, I'm sure it will be fully investigated. Up until that point it was a great day, the car felt perfect and I was comfortable in the lead so it felt like it would be an easy 1-2 but there are no guarantees in this sport. Of course I am frustrated from my side not to win but I was very happy to see Checo up there. He did everything that the Team could have wanted today. He had a great start and then we both got past Lewis in the pits. I heard he had to defend for most of the race, so if I couldn't win, I'm glad he could. He's a great guy and a great teammate so it was good to see him smiling on the podium and having his first win for Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull). It's a shame that we missed out on the opportunity to make the gap bigger to Lewis today in the championship as we know when we get back to the normal tracks Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) will be very strong again but it just goes to show anything can happen and it's still a good result for the Team!"


Christian Horner: "What a rollercoaster! I think we have been through every single emotion today. To be within five laps of achieving our first 1-2 since 2016 to then lose Max from the lead of the race with a puncture that is so far unexplained was pretty heart breaking. The race was then red flagged and we had serious concerns that Sergio was losing hydraulic pressure and there were no guarantees he would make it to the finish. Thankfully Sergio got the job done and Lewis' mistake into Turn 1 at the restart means we come out of the weekend having extended our lead in the Constructors' Championship with Max maintaining his lead in the Drivers' and Checo now moving into third place. Although it was frustrating for Max, we are delighted for Checo to take his first win for the Team today. He has been extremely fast all weekend and it was a great boost for the Team to see him on the top step of the podium. It was also great to see Pierre on up there on the podium after a strong weekend but today we would like to dedicate this win to Mansour Ojjeh who was unfortunately lost from the McLaren (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/5/mclaren) family and our sport, he was inspirational and someone I was fortunate enough to call a friend. Congratulations and a big thank you must also go to all our partners, especially Mobil 1 who provided us with an upgraded engine oil for this weekend which just shows how hard all areas of our Team are pushing in this championship fight."

Azerbaijan GP: Race team notes - AlphaTauriPierre Gasly (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/53/pierre-gasly): "What an incredible weekend, topping FP3, then P4 in Qualifying and now a podium today - I'm so happy for the guys, it was a great result! What a way to do it as well, the last two laps were so intense with Charles and I really had to fight hard to get that podium. The entire race was really full-on, we managed to keep up with the guys ahead but from the middle of the race we had an engine issue and we started to lose some power in the straight, so I knew it was going to be hard until the end, but we managed to hold on to P4. After the restart I thought that Charles would pass me on the straight because we had lost performance, but I saw the podium ahead of me and I tried everything, I just wanted it so badly. It was hard but fair racing, just as we like it. The car was incredible all weekend, it felt really good, and it's just a fantastic result for the whole team. I'm really pleased to reward them with a podium. Moving forward to France, we need to analyse what went well this weekend and see how we can use these learnings at the next race. It's my home race so I really want to do well there but for now it's time to celebrate - I've already had a Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull), but I think we'll be having something else tonight too!"

Yuki Tsunoda (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/71/yuki-tsunoda): "I'm a bit frustrated by the final result today, as I think the pace in the car has been strong this weekend. The start of the race was ok for me and until the red flag I think my performance was really good. Unfortunately, I dropped two positions during the last laps, I'm not sure I could have done anything differently but I'll analyse everything tonight so I can understand this better moving forward. P7 still means important points for the team though. I want to say congratulations to Pierre for the podium today, the team really deserve it and it's a great result."


Franz Tost (Team Principal): "It was a sensational race from the very beginning. I want to say congratulations to Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) Racing, Honda and Perez today, it was a fantastic victory. Unfortunately, Max who was leading and was in my opinion the fastest man on the track, lost it at the very last minute of a great race from his side. However, the important thing is that he still leads the Championship. As for us, we started with Pierre in fourth position, which was already a great starting place, and Yuki wasn't far behind in seventh. Both drivers had a good start and Pierre defended P4 for a long period, even whilst managing a small PU issue, but unfortunately lost time behind Stroll and that allowed Vettel to catch-up and overtake Pierre after the pitstop. At the restart, we changed from the Hards to the Softs and Pierre completed a really good manoeuvre against Leclerc to put himself into third position. It's an unbelievable result and both the team and Pierre deserve it, as we were very competitive here from FP1 onwards. Yuki started from P7 and only lost one place to Alonso on the first lap but managed to regain the position later. After the red flag, Yuki started from sixth position but lost two places during those last few laps. Nonetheless, he finished in a fantastic seventh place and the team scored some great points this weekend, meaning we're now fifth in the Constructors' Championship. The guys did a really good job today on all sides, from the pitstops to the strategy, and they deserve this result. Congratulations to the whole Scuderia AlphaTauri (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/16/alphatauri) team and I hope we can continue this performance in the upcoming races."

Azerbaijan GP: Race team notes - McLarenLando Norris (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/60/lando-norris): "Happy with the end result today, fifth was the best we could do. It was a long race with it being difficult to overtake in the middle. There were a few crashes here and there that allowed us to gain a few places, and then two overtakes on the final restart was great. I think it was a good recovery from where we were at the beginning of the race after a pretty poor lap one, just because I got unlucky. A decent amount of points for us as a team. Onto the next one!

"Finally, I want to pass my condolences on to Mansour Ojjeh's family. This result was for him today."


Daniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo): "There were moments today in the race where I was thinking 'I hope it becomes a bit more exciting' and suddenly it did!


"We had some positive moments, but also a few difficult periods. I flat-spotted the Hard a bit, so that became tricky for the last few laps before the red flag, but not too bad beforehand. The last start, I felt like I got a good launch, and had a good run on the outside but there wasn't really much room with a couple of cars on the inside. It just all bottlenecked into Turn Two and I felt a hit from behind. I couldn't really do much, but we'll keep working on our plan and keep moving forward.


"I also just want to pay tribute to Mansour and send my condolences to Kathy and his entire family. He made a massive contribution to both McLaren (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/5/mclaren) and the entire sport, and he will be greatly missed."


Andreas Seidl, Team Principal: "Our thoughts this evening are with Mansour Ojjeh's family after the sad news of his passing. Today, we were racing in honour of our long-term friend, supporter and fellow racer.
"Regarding the race, from starting positions of P9 and P13, then P12 and P13 after the first lap, clearly the objective was to fight back, and not lose too much ground to our competitors in the Constructors' Championship. In those terms, to leave Baku with finishing positions of P5 and P9 is something we'll take very happily. We were able to keep our cool through a difficult race packed with incidents, where we waited for opportunities and made decisive moves to finish with decent positions. Thanks today to the drivers, the trackside team, support from the MTC, and our colleagues at Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) HPP, all of whom contributed to a good recovery.


"We're going home now to reset and analyse this race weekend. The clear objective going forward to France and beyond is to qualify higher up the grid and, in doing so, make our Sundays a little easier. We'll be pushing again at Paul Ricard to keep up the fight in the Constructors' Championship."

Azerbaijan GP: Race team notes - MercedesValtteri finished P12 after the W12 struggled for grip all weekend. Lewis records a P15 after an accidental brake balance setting change caused him to lock brakes on Turn 1 when vying with Perez for the lead following a dramatic race restart with two laps to go.

The race was red-flagged after an accident for Verstappen on the main straight which provided the opportunity for a change of tyres and a two lap race for the finish once the action restarted.


Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen) (105 points) leads the Drivers' Championship by 4 points from Lewis (101) and Lando Norris (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/60/lando-norris) in P3 (66), with Valtteri (47) in P6. Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) (174 points) lead the Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes)-AMG Petronas F1 Team (148 points) by 26 points in the Constructors' Championship.


Valtteri Bottas (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/3/valtteri-bottas): Today in the race I was lacking pace, as I have been all weekend and it's difficult to understand why. One big issue is the tyre warm-up, particularly the front tyres. On the hard tyres, it took almost10 laps to warm up and on the restart, we were on the back foot with cold tyres. I was trying everything I could but something just wasn't right with the car for me this weekend. We need to work hard to figure out why and move on quickly from this.


Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton): An unfortunate day, a humbling experience and I'm so sorry for the team. We did a good job to be in the position we were in today, to be out of the top ten on Friday and come back was down to the hard work of the men and women in this team. When Checo came towards me after the restart, I turned the wheel and flicked a switch which shifts the brake balance and that caused me to lock up.


It's one of the toughest moments I've had for a while - one moment we had all the points and the next we had none but for sure, we'll regroup and come back.


Toto Wolff: In Monaco and here we didn't have a car that was competitive, full stop. We have underlying issues - we are not getting the car in a happy window for the tyres. We know the deficit and we know we have gaps which we simply have to overcome but I have no doubt, this a team which is so strong and so angry, and we are going to turn that anger into positive form and come back.


Andrew Shovlin: An extremely disappointing end to the weekend but that's just how luck pans out sometimes; Max's misfortune put us in that position in the first place. The bigger issue that we have to deal with is that in the last two races we haven't been good enough. Not fast enough, we've made mistakes, we struggle to switch the tyres on and we've been on the back-foot through free practice. We know the level it takes to win championships and we're not at that level right now so we need to re-group and come back performing the way we know that we can. We have the team, the car and the drivers to win this but we need to be tough and honest with ourselves over the next few days. We've had days like this before and each time we've come back strong and we'll look do that in France.

Azerbaijan GP: Race team notes - PirelliRed Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) driver Sergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez) won with two stops, going from P Zero Red soft to P Zero White hard to soft again. The race was red flagged with just three laps to go following an accident for race leader Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen) in the other Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull). Under the red flag regulations, the drivers were allowed to change tyres, which they all did before the final sprint.

Most drivers selected a soft to hard strategy before the red flag period, with all of them then selecting the soft tyre until the finish.


There was a safety car period just over halfway through the race, when Aston Martin driver Lance Stroll (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/57/lance-stroll) crashed close to the entrance of the pit lane, following a deflation of the rear-left tyre. When the pit lane re-opened, five drivers chose to make a second stop, fitting either the hard or the soft tyre.


Initial observations have already been made as to what could have caused these incidents affecting the rear-left tyre. None of the other tyres in the race of a similar (or older) age showed any signs of excessive wear, there was evidence of a cut found on another rear-left tyre fitted to Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton)'s car during the same stint, there was no warning or vibration detected prior to either incident, and the rear-left tyre is actually not the most stressed on this circuit. All of these considerations could point to an external factor.


Temperatures were somewhat cooler than they had been over the previous two days, with 26 degrees of ambient temperature and 39 degrees of track temperature when the race began.

Mario Isola: "We need to clearly establish the facts behind the incidents involving Lance Stroll (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/57/lance-stroll) and Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen) to fully understand what happened. What we can say for now is that there was also a cut found on Hamilton's tyre and that it's the rear-right tyre that actually works harder than the rear-left here. No warnings or vibrations were detected and none of the other tyres of a similar age or older showed any signs of excess wear. So we can not exclude that the damage was caused by an external factor, although these things shouldn't happen and we can understand the need for answers."

Las novedades técnicas bajo la lupa de N. Carpentiers:

La technique à Bakou : Mercedes presse à tort son “bouton magique”

Par sa nature contrastée, le circuit de Bakou oblige à faire le bon compromis entre appui et traînée. Red Bull s’en est mieux sorti que Mercedes, victime d’une erreur de son pilote.


https://f1i.autojournal.fr/wp-content/uploads/sites/17/2021/06/f1-technique-azerbaidjan-bakou-mercedes-volant-new.jpg


TECHNIQUE ET ERREUR HUMAINE La Formule 1 s’articule autour d’un étrange paradoxe. Conditionnée par la technique, elle devrait être le sport le plus prévisible qui soit. Or, elle laisse une place déconcertante au hasard, du fait même de sa sophistication technologique. Le Grand Prix d’Azerbaïdjan l’a encore démontré, avec l’explosion inattendue des pneus arrière de Max Verstappen et Lance Stroll, mais aussi avec l’erreur de manipulation commise par Lewis Hamilton.


Au moment du second départ, le pilote Mercedes a en effet pressé par erreur un bouton sur son volant (détaillé ici) (https://f1i.autojournal.fr/magazine/magazine-technique/galerie-technique-f1-grand-prix-de-sakhir/3/) et a tiré tout droit à l’entrée du premier virage, laissant passer les autres concurrents et perdant ainsi toute chance d’inscrire le moindre point :


“J’ai touché un bouton sur le volant, ce qui a eu pour effet de faire fonctionner uniquement les freins avant, a expliqué le Britannique après la course. Nous avons une commande qui nous aide à garder les freins avant en température, et quand Pérez s’est rabattu, j’ai pressé ce bouton par inadvertance. Les freins se sont bloqués et je suis parti tout droit.”



Le volant de la Mercedes est équipé de plusieurs commandes qui permettent de modifier la répartition de freinage entre l’avant (disques) et l’arrière (disques et frein moteur).


La première molette, étiquetée “BB” pour “Brake Balance”, modifie la répartition de freinage entre l’avant et l’arrière (elle est secondée par des boutons BB– et BB+, voyez les flèches jaunes). Indiquée par une flèche rouge ci-dessus, la deuxième molette (“BMIG” pour “Brake Migration”) permet pour sa part de régler le frein moteur en intervenant sur le MGU-K (https://f1i.autojournal.fr/magazine/magazine-technique/linnovation-sans-frein/3/).

https://f1i.autojournal.fr/wp-content/uploads/sites/17/2021/06/f1-technique-azerbaidjan-bakou-mercedes-volant-2.jpg


Le “magic button”, quant à lui, est une sorte de raccourci, un pré-réglage, qui joue sur plusieurs paramètres des deux molettes et permet, en une seule pression, de déplacer la répartition du freinage vers l’avant lors des tours de formation et des tours passés derrière la voiture de sécurité, afin de conserver à la bonne température les disques et les pneus avant (qui travaillent dans une fenêtre de température spécifique (https://f1i.autojournal.fr/magazine/magazine-technique/technique-f1-placer-pneus-bonne-fenetre-dexploitation/4/)). Il semble que la répartition de freinage sur l’avant est normalement de 51 %, mais qu’elle passe à 86,5 % avec le “brake magic”.

Chez Hamilton, ce bouton est situé sur la face arrière du volant (flèche bleue sur l’image ci-dessus), alors qu’il est installé sur la face avant sur le volant de Valtteri Bottas (le bouton rouge BW – pour “brake warming” – sur la première image, voyez la flèche verte). Cette commande existe sur les autres monoplaces (chez Red Bull, elle s’active en utilisant la palette servant à activer le DRS, puisque celui-ci ne peut être utilisé pendant le tour de formation ou derrière la voiture de sécurité).


Normalement, le pilote la désactive à la fin du tour de formation ou du dernier tour passé derrière la safety car. Hamilton l’a éteint, mais l’a rallumé par erreur, comme on l’a appris lors de son échange par radio avec son ingénieur de course une fois la ligne d’arrivée franchie :


LH : “Est-ce que j’ai laissé le magique allumé ? J’aurais juré que je l’avais éteint.”


PB (Peter Bonnington, dit Bono) : “Tu l’as éteint, mais tu l’as rallumé en actionnant la palette de montée des vitesses. On en reparlera plus tard.”



Si septuple Champion du monde avait été chanceux à Imola après sa sortie de piste sous la pluie, cette deuxième bévue pourrait lui coûter cher à l’heure du décompte final (18 points perdus), tant la compétition est serrée avec Verstappen.

https://f1i.autojournal.fr/wp-content/uploads/sites/17/2021/06/f1-technique-azerbaidjan-bakou-red-bull-aileron.jpg


[B]LA RED BULL AVAIT LE BON COMPROMIS Sans l’explosion de son pneu arrière gauche, il est vraisemblable que Max Verstappen aurait remporté le Grand Prix d’Azerbaïdjan. La Red Bull était en effet la voiture la plus rapide en course. Sa compétitivité, ainsi que celle de la Ferrari en qualification, tient au niveau d’appui choisi par les différentes écuries sur un circuit très contrasté.


Le “Street Baku Circuit” est en effet un mixte de Monaco et de Monza (https://f1i.autojournal.fr/magazine/magazine-features/presentation-magazine/trois-enjeux-grand-prix-f1-azerbaidjan/), ce qui rend le bon compromis en termes de charge aérodynamique difficile à trouver. En la matière, les écuries ont fait des choix différents, Red Bull installant sur la RB16B un aileron arrière plus chargé que ceux de Mercedes et Ferrari.


Plus précisément, les ingénieurs du Taureau ailé ont choisi un aileron dont le plan principal – vu de face – est incurvé, comme une cuillère (comparez les traits verts).
Grâce à ce dessin, l’angle d’incidence du plan principal reste faible aux extrémités, ce qui permet de diminuer l’intensité des vortex créés aux coins de l’aileron arrière (https://f1i.auto-moto.com/magazine/magazine-technique/formule-1-loeil-du-cyclone/) (qui constituent l’une des principales sources de traînée sur une F1). Quant à la partie centrale du plan principal, elle reste inclinée et longue, afin de générer un certain appui.


https://f1i.autojournal.fr/wp-content/uploads/sites/17/2021/06/f1-technique-azerbaidjan-bakou-mclaren-alpine-aileron.jpg

Outre Red Bull, les écuries McLaren, Alpine et Williams – qui utilisent en général des ailerons avec un plan principal rectiligne – ont adopté ce dessin incurvé (AlphaTauri, quant à elle, a monté un aileron très légèrement recourbé).

https://f1i.autojournal.fr/wp-content/uploads/sites/17/2021/06/f1-technique-azerbaidjan-bakou-ferrari-aileron-arriere.jpg


FERRARI ET MERCEDES DÉCHARGENT… ET PERDENT Les autres équipes, dont Mercedes et Ferrari, ont conservé un bord d’attaque plat vu de face, mais ont réduit son incidence. En d’autres termes, leur aileron est moins incliné et moins incurvé.


Comme l’aile est plus plate, la différence de vitesse entre le flux d’air du dessous et celui du dessus est moins importante, ce qui non seulement réduit la différence de pression en dessous et au-dessus de l’aileron mais affaiblit également le vortex généré à l’intersection de la dérive verticale et du volet supérieur, et par conséquent la traînée.
Aston Martin, Alfa Romeo et Ferrari ont adopté cette solution, idéale pour la qualification mais perfectible pour la course.


Après avoir comparé les performances de la SF21 avec un aileron moyennement chargé et ensuite avec un aileron très fin lors des essais libres, la Scuderia a choisi d’adopter ce dernier pour la qualification et la course. La monture de Charles Leclerc et Carlos Sainz possède une excellente traction et met ses gommes en température rapidement, soit les caractéristiques idéales pour être rapide dans le secteur intermédiaire, similaire à Monaco.


Générant beaucoup d’appui par d’autres moyens que l’aileron arrière, la SF21 pouvait donc être pourvue d’une aile arrière peu chargée, afin de gagner de la vitesse dans la longue ligne droite. Ces choix ont aidé le pilote monégasque à décrocher la pole position, même s’il bénéficia de circonstances chanceuses (l’aspiration de la Mercedes, le drapeau rouge brandi avant les seconds chronos, etc.).


Cette configuration présentait toutefois le désavantage de soumettre les pneus arrière au phénomène de graining (https://f1i.autojournal.fr/magazine/magazine-technique/technique-f1-pneu-mystere-boule-de-gomme-2-2/3/). Les pneus arrière de la Ferrari se sont dégradés plus rapidement, comme en témoigne l’arrêt précoce de Leclerc au neuvième tour.


https://f1i.autojournal.fr/wp-content/uploads/sites/17/2021/06/f1-technique-azerbaidjan-bakou-mercedes-aileron.jpg


Mercedes a souffert d’un problème similaire – mais pour des raisons différentes. De manière générale, la W12 dégrade peu ses gommes, ce qui est un avantage sur des pistes rapides (telle Barcelone) mais un handicap sur les pistes tortueuses (comme Monaco ou le secteur intermédiaire à Bakou).


Par conséquent, les ingénieurs de Brackley avaient initialement prévu de “charger” la Flèche d’argent, afin qu’elle puisse “allumer” ses gommes (c’est-à-dire les chauffer assez rapidement) et trouver de l’adhérence dans la partie sinueuse du circuit. Or, cette configuration à fort appui testée le vendredi n’a pas produit les résultats attendus : malgré leur appui élevé, les W12 ne parvenaient pas vendredi à faire monter leurs gommes en température et étaient plus lentes que leurs rivales dans le secteur intermédiaire.


L’équipe décida donc d’ôter de l’appui sur la monoplace de Lewis Hamilton, qui utilisa dès lors un aileron avec un seul pylône de soutien. Valtteri Bottas, lui, conserva la version à double pilier, générant plus de charge. La monoplace du britannique gagna en compétitivité, même si son meilleur chrono que la RB16B en qualification est en partie dû aux circonstances (Verstappen ne bénéficia pas de l’aspiration lors de son unique tour chronométré). Dimanche, s’il parvint à doubler la Ferrari moins puissante, il souffrit d’une dégradation rapide de ses gommes (– 0,3 seconde au neuvième tour, – 0,4 au dixième tour, ce qui poussa Mercedes à le faire rentrer au onzième passage).


https://f1i.autojournal.fr/wp-content/uploads/sites/17/2021/06/f1-technique-azerbaidjan-bakou-alpine-aileron-avant.jpg


MOINS DE VOILURE À L’AVANT AUSSI En toute logique, la surface de l’aileron avant de toutes monoplaces a été réduite, afin de correspondre à la baisse d’appui à l’arrière, comme on le voit sur l’image ci-dessus, qui compare les deux versions de l’aileron de l’Alpine pilotée par Fernando Alonso et Esteban Ocon.


https://f1i.autojournal.fr/wp-content/uploads/sites/17/2021/06/f1-technique-azerbaidjan-bakou-ferrari-test-aileron-flexible.jpg


AILERON FLEXIBLES : LA FIA PRÉPARE LE TERRAINLe Grand Prix d’Azerbaïdjan était la dernière épreuve avant la mise en place par la FIA d’un nouveau contrôle de flexibilité de l’aileron arrière, qui sera effectif à partir du Grand Prix de France (https://f1i.autojournal.fr/infos/technique-infos/red-bull-forcee-de-modifier-aileron/).

Comme ceux qui sont actuellement en vigueur, ce test sera statique. Concrètement, les monoplaces seront amenées dans le local technique de la FIA installé sur tous les circuits et subiront un test de rotation (des charges longitudinales et verticales seront appliquées sur l’aileron, qui ne devra pas fléchir de plus d’un degré).


Anticipant l’ingéniosité des écuries (qui sont parvenues créer des ailerons flexibles et capables de satisfaire aux tests statiques), la FIA a décidé de surveiller les mouvements de l’aileron alors que la voiture est en mouvement, et ce, grâce aux caméras filmant l’arrière de la voiture.


Pour mesurer avec précision une éventuelle flexion de l’aileron, les autorités sportives ont obligé les écuries à coller à Bakou douze pastilles d’un diamètre de 1 cm à différents endroits de l’aile arrière. Ces autocollants sont visibles sur l’image ci-dessus : il s’agit des points verts sur la Ferrari et des points blancs sur la Red Bull (ils sont jaunes sur la Mercedes). Toutes les monoplaces doivent afficher ces repères, qui aideront la Fédération à mieux apprécier les possibles mouvements.


Le vendredi, Red Bull a ajouté ses propres stickers (des damiers à quatre cases) pour vérifier elle-même l’éventuel affaissement de son aileron. Avec d’autres formations, l’écurie autrichienne est soupçonnée d’utiliser un aileron arrière flexible, au grand dam de Mercedes et McLaren notamment. Véhémentes dans leurs déclarations, ces deux écuries n’ont toutefois pas porté plainte devant la FIA à ce sujet ce week-end.



https://f1i.autojournal.fr/wp-content/uploads/sites/17/2021/06/f1-technique-azerbaidjan-bakou-mercedes-moteur.jpgÀ L’EST, DE NOUVEAUX BLOCS À Bakou, les écuries propulsées par Ferrari et Mercedes ont reçu de nouveaux moteurs, alors que les bolides équipés du V6 Honda et du bloc Renault ont conservé leur groupe propulseur, qui avait cinq Grands Prix dans les jambes.


Plus précisément, Mercedes – comme ses clients McLaren, Aston Martin et Williams – a monté dans ses châssis un nouveau moteur à combustion, un nouveau turbocompresseur, de nouveaux MGU-H et -K, ainsi que de nouveaux échappements.


Quant à Ferrari, Alfa Romeo et Haas, elles ont installé sur leurs bolides un nouveau V6 thermique, un nouveau turbocompresseur, un nouveau MGU-H. En outre, les pilotes Ferrari ont reçu un MGU-K flambant neuf.


Les pilotes Alpine ont pour leur part encore une fois changé leurs échappements. C’est le quatrième changement pour Fernando Alonso et le troisième pour Esteban Ocon, alors que huit lots au maximum sont autorisés par règlement, signe d’un problème de qualité sur cette pièce.


C’est l’interminable ligne droite du circuit, longue de 2,2 km, qui a poussé Mercedes et Ferrari à renouveler leurs groupes propulseurs. Cette portion rectiligne met le V6 thermique à rude épreuve, tout comme le déploiement d’énergie électrique. Les années précédentes, les écuries introduisaient d’ailleurs souvent leur première évolution à Bakou, ce qui n’est plus permis cette année (https://f1i.autojournal.fr/magazine/magazine-technique/reglement-technique-f1-2021-explique/5/).
Le choix de Honda de conserver son premier moteur, audacieux, signifie que Verstappen et Pérez ont commencé leur week-end azerbaïdjanais avec un groupe propulseur ayant parcouru environ 3000 km alors que Hamilton et Bottas, entre autres, l’entamaient avec un V6 tout neuf. Cela ne pénalisa apparemment pas les deux pilotes Red Bull, qui prirent le dessus sur les Flèches d’argent (seul Pierre Gasly eut des inquiétudes pendant toute la course à propos de son V6, qui lui permit néanmoins de décrocher un podium*).


Pour mémoire, chaque pilote peut utiliser au maximum trois moteurs thermiques, trois turbocompresseurs, trois MGU-H et -K, ainsi que deux batteries et deux boîtiers de contrôle électroniques. Les moteurs remplacés par Mercedes et Ferrari ce week-end pourront bien entendu toujours être utilisés plus tard, par exemple sur des circuits moins exigeants en termes de cavalerie, tel le Hungaröring.
(*) Le problème qui faillit coûter la victoire à Sergio Pérez concernait le système hydraulique (https://f1i.autojournal.fr/magazine/magazine-technique/technique-f1-quoi-lhydraulique-indispensable/) de la RB16B.https://f1i.autojournal.fr/wp-content/uploads/sites/17/2021/06/f1-technique-azerbaidjan-bakou-mclaren-capot-posible.jpg


McLAREN S’AFFINE Enfin, McLaren a testé un capot moteur (légèrement) plus étroit, à des fins aérodynamiques. Il est possible que cette évolution soit une conséquence de l’adoption du fond plat en forme de “Z” introduit en Espagne.
