“WE TRIED SOMETHING A LITTLE DIFFERENT FROM THE NORM TODAY”

 

As predicted, the opening day of practice for the inaugural Azerbaijan Grand Prix (last year’s race was run under the label of the ‘European GP’) was frantic and busy – and punctuated by numerous off-track excursions, yellow flags, and a couple of red-flag stoppages.

Preview

This is only the second Grand Prix to be run around the streets of Azerbaijan’s capital city, Baku. The track layout remains the same as last year, with its long pit straight along the edge of the Caspian Sea, but the event has been re-named for 2017. It’s no longer called the European Grand Prix; it’s now the Azerbaijan Grand Prix.
