Baku track to be ‘another tough challenge’ for Honda

A+ A

Baku, June 16, AZERTAC

"Though the circuit layout and atmosphere will no doubt be very different to the Gilles Villeneuve Circuit, we believe that Baku will be similar in its stop-and-go characteristics and long straights, so we think it’ll be another tough challenge for the team,” said Yusuke Hasegawa, Honda R&D Co Ltd Head of F1 Project & Executive Chief Engineer.

“Therefore, within the small window of time given to us between these two races, it’ll be very important for us to analyse and understand the data from Canada to bring out the current potential of the power unit in Baku.”

He said: “This particular back-to-back race will be strenuous for the team to adjust and prepare everything for this race weekend, but being part of the inaugural F1 race in Baku is surely something to look forward to, so I’m very excited about that."
