Four-time world champion about most difficult section of Baku circuit

Four-time world champion about most difficult section of Baku circuit

"The steep climb past the old city walls is only seven meters wide, which feels very tight in a Formula One car – you feel like you are threading a needle," Ferrari pilot Sebastian Vettel said in a statement to the official website of the team ahead of Formula 1 SOCAR Azerbaijan Grand Prix 2019.

“This six kilometer circuit has the longest straight on the calendar, 2.2 kilometers, where we reach 360 kph before the very heavy braking for the first slow left hand turn. The steep climb past the old city walls is only seven meters wide, which feels very tight in a Formula One car – you feel like you are threading a needle. There isn´t enough space for two cars here so you have to agree on the right of way between you! A big challenge at Baku is to find the right wing level to get good grip for the slow corners but also to be fast enough on the straights where we spend a lot of time at full throttle. It’s not an easy compromise.”
