Madrid, June 18, AZERTAC
“I’m pleasantly surprised with this track, I like it. It’s a high-speed circuit with very close walls and tight run-off areas, which requires maximum precision and concentration. The long straights here in Baku also make you run low downforce at a street circuit, which is something new in Formula 1,” said Spanish driver of Toro Rosso Carlos Sainz, according to formula1.com.
“Before today I had only driven it on the sim and I have to say that doing it for real is much better: in the sim the walls are transparent, while here you have the excitement of being so close to them, the adrenaline rush you feel around these streets is big and I really enjoyed it out there today. It’s a fun challenge and I look forward to tomorrow,” he added.
