GP Europe: Sainz: “Baku is a big boost of adrenaline”

With the ninth and sixth place in the two sessions of the day, Carlos Sainz has begun with very good feelings about their experience in the
Baku City Circuit, she liked it even more than you did
in the simulator. The spaniard has highlighted the difficulty of filming in
a street circuit with such low levels of downforce
as a result of the high speeds that are reached in the third sector.

“Today has been a challenge for all of us, since that was the
the first time that pilotábamos on this track. Is a circuit of high
speed with the very close walls and small loopholes,
which is required to have a precision and perfect concentration
. The
long straights here also make you roll with little load
aerodynamics on a street circuit, which is something new in the
Formula 1. Therefore, it has been an interesting day. In general,
we have managed to pass more or less without problems and we have learned
a lot of face-to-morning”
, said the spaniard after a day more
positive than expected.

“I’m pleasantly satisfied with this circuit, I like it

Especially in the second session, the temperatures dropped as
a consequence of a greater presence of clouds, something that is not expected
that happens in the day of Saturday. “we Hope conditions
different about today, that has been very cloudy and with a lot of
wind. I’m pleasantly satisfied with this circuit, I like it.
Before today, only had been tested in the simulator and I have
to say that the reality is much better. The walls in the
simulator are transparent, while here you have the thrill of
roll close to them. The boost of adrenaline that you feel in these
streets is very high and today I have had a very good track
. It is a
challenge fun and I am looking forward to tomorrow”
, claimed
Carlos Sainz.

Kvyat suffers to follow the wake of Sainz

As it is being usual this year, things are not were so
well Daniil Kvyat, which suffered much more than his companion for
adapt to the situation. “The first session has not been
all good, we struggled a little to find the balance
right of the car. However, the second session this afternoon
it has been much more productive
, although we still lack a bit of pace
we hope to find. Now we just need to have everything
ready for tomorrow. We have collected important information that
I hope that it will be useful for the rest of the weekend. We know the
direction we should take and we will work hard this evening to
to hit with everything”
, declared hopeful the Russian.
