Drivers uncertain over new Baku F1 circuit layout

Formula 1 drivers have admitted they are not sure how much they will enjoy this weekend’s inaugural grand prix on the Baku F1 circuit.

The track in Azerbaijan has been billed as an ultra high speed street layout including an exciting, ultra-narrow run past the old city walls.

But world champion Lewis Hamilton sounds uncertain.

“It has a very long straight,” the Briton is quoted by Brazil’s UOL.

“Street circuit? I think Monaco is a street circuit. It (Baku) is so wide in some places — I don’t know why they do circuits like this. But I hope it’s exciting.”

Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel said he has tried the layout in the simulator.

“I thought it has a few interesting parts and some other more simple parts,” said the German. “At least it will be hotter than in Canada!” he smiled.

Felipe Massa thinks the cars with the most powerful engines will shine because top speeds will rival those seen at Spa-Francorchamps and even Monza.

“It’s a bit like Sochi with one quite narrow part,” said the Williams driver.

And Toro Rosso’s Daniil Kvyat is quoted by the Spanish daily Marca: “It reminds me a little of Valencia.”
