    GP do Azerbaijão – 6ªEtapa do Mundial de Formula 1 – 2021

    Classificação 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.

    Yuki 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.

    Pela segunda vez seguida a pole ficou com Charles Leclerc, a Ferrari mostra ser um carro cada vez mais competitivo e se mostra uma bela Pedra no sapato de Red Bull e Mercedes. 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).




    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.

    A 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.

    Sergio 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.


    No dia 20 de Junho, vai ser realizada a 7ªetapa do Mundial de Formula 1, Na pista de Paul Ricard que não realizou a corrida da temporada passada por conta da crise do Coronavirus.

    Azerbaijan GP: Race team notes - Haas

    Uralkali Haas F1 Team drivers Mick Schumacher and 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, 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 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 Racing's Sergio Perez claimed his second career victory, ahead of Aston Martin's Sebastian Vettel, with AlphaTauri's Pierre Gasly third.


    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: "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 Martin

    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: "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 - Alpine

    Alpine F1 Team scored eight points from the 2021 Azerbaijan Grand Prix thanks to a stunning final two laps by Fernando Alonso that saw the Spaniard climb four places to finish sixth position at the chequered flag. 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'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's McLaren who was holding onto tenth place. The result looked set before a red flag was waved for 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 on the outside of turn five to storm home to sixth position around the Baku City Circuit.


    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: "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 Romeo

    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 and 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, 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'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: "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: "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 - Ferrari

    While 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: 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: 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 Bull

    Sergio Perez: "We love Baku! It feels amazing to get my first win with 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: "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. 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 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 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 - AlphaTauri

    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, but I think we'll be having something else tonight too!"

    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 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 team and I hope we can continue this performance in the upcoming races."

    Azerbaijan GP: Race team notes - McLaren

    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: "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 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 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 - Mercedes

    Valtteri 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 (105 points) leads the Drivers' Championship by 4 points from Lewis (101) and Lando Norris in P3 (66), with Valtteri (47) in P6. Red Bull (174 points) lead the Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 Team (148 points) by 26 points in the Constructors' Championship.


    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: 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 - Pirelli

    Red Bull driver 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 in the other 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 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'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 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."

    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.





    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) 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.




    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). 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 [bouton] 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.




    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, 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 (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.




    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).




    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. Les pneus arrière de la Ferrari se sont dégradés plus rapidement, comme en témoigne l’arrêt précoce de Leclerc au neuvième tour.


    [img]https://f1i.autojournal.fr/wp-conten...es-aileron.jpg[/img]


    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).





    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.





    AILERON FLEXIBLES : LA FIA PRÉPARE LE TERRAIN

    Le 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.

    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.





    À 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.
    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 de la RB16B.




    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.
