It was not Ferrari or Mercedes on top of the time sheets as for the first time this season, Red Bull Racing set the pace in both practice sessions at the Azerbaijan Grand Prix in Baku. The Austrian team were expected to struggle owing to the long straights, but Max Verstappen was the fastest in both sessions after adapting to the track faster than anyone.
All the drivers struggled for front tyre grip as there were more than 100 yellow flag incidents. Every driver had to take the escape road at least once as they came to grips with the street circuit. The grip is certain to improve on Saturday, and Red Bull will be hoping that they can maintain their dominance at the front.
The first Grand Prix was held at Baku City Circuit only last year, with the course having a circuit length of 6.003km and 51 laps in total, making for a 306.049km total race distance. The lap record was set by Nico Rosberg in 2016, which currently stands at 1:46.485.
