Baku, June 16, AZERTAC
“It’s good to have GP2 racing as part of the inaugural grand prix in Baku, allowing the young drivers involved to discover new territories. With low grip and high track evolution expected, as well as quite high temperatures, the new street circuit will provide quite a challenge to the teams in terms of understanding the tyre behavior,” said Pirelli’s racing manager Mario Isola. “Extracting the most from the tyres in qualifying will be important to a good result, as will selecting the best strategy for the race. Above all, it will be a question of adapting to this new set of circumstances as quickly as possible, rewarding the GP2 teams and drivers who are able to think on their feet,” he added.
