Tech Talk: Baku

Tech Talk: Baku

Paddy Lowe, Executive Director (Technical)

After an enjoyable but rather chilly weekend in Canada, we head for the warmer climes of Azerbaijan – whose 30 degree heat will be a welcome contrast to the 12 degrees on the pit wall during Sunday’s race! Combine those high temperatures with a low downforce circuit configuration, freshly laid tarmac and the unknown quantity of a new venue, and we’re set for an entertaining weekend ahead. The early sessions will see a lot of cars sliding around on track – which is great for the spectacle, even if the drivers will inevitably be complaining! We’re excited to go to a brand new venue in Baku – a city very few in the paddock will ever have visited before. As we travel around the world, it never ceases to amaze me how many passionate, dedicated and knowledgeable supporters this sport has – even in places we’ve never been to before – which is very humbling. So, we very much look forward to the weekend and hope to put on a great show for the first Grand Prix in Azerbaijan.
