TECHNICAL DIRECTOR, HONDA RACING F1 Tanabe-san: The fourth round of the championship takes place on the fastest street circuit on the calendar. The key features of the Baku track are the main straight, which is over 2 kilometres in length and the many right angle corners, typical of a city circuit. From a PU point of view, the long straight means energy management is an important factor and we will use the lessons we learned here last year when it comes to optimising our settings. This weekend, we will introduce the Spec 2 version of our internal combustion engine (ICE) across all four cars right from the start of the weekend. One of the reasons for bringing it to this race is that we found that Kvyat’s PU problem in China was down to a quality control issue. The main benefits of Spec 2 are improved durability and life and better reliability. It also offers a slight improvement in performance. #AzerbaijanGP #PoweredByHonda #GivesYouWings #Red#RedBulla #Honda #F1 #ThePowerOfDreams #RedBull #RedBullHondaF1 #RB15 #RedBullRacing #HondaRacingF1 #RedBullfamily #photo #photography #STR14 #ToroRossoHonda

Pierre's prixview on Baku Melbourne’s a temporary circuit, but in a parkland setting, and so Baku represents the first proper street circuit of the year. Do you enjoy racing in the streets? 🗣: "It’s always more challenging as there’s a lot less margin for error, and this gives you more adrenaline which is a positive for us racing drivers. The track is really cool and quite technical from one corner to another. It has the longest straight of the season with a lot of opportunities to overtake, which makes the racing super exciting on Sunday." You finished 12thin your first grand prix here last year after starting from P17, but you’ve been on a Baku podium before haven’t you? 🗣: "When I raced in Formula 2, I started the race in Baku from last and had a good fight with Antonio Giovinazzi in the last couple of laps to finish P2." Are you confident of good outing in F1 this time? 🗣: "Things are progressively going in a better direction and it was good to get the fastest lap in China, so let’s see what we can do this weekend."
