SPEEDCORNER.NET – On Friday, the GP stars were still struggling on the street circuit of Baku. Now they have to go to the limit in qualifying. If you do not want to miss the fight for the grid, you will find all the broadcasting times here.
The Friday in Baku has already offered a lot of entertainment: Numerous GP pilots had to use the emergency exits in the three free training hours, Red Bull Racing talent Max Verstappen put his GP racer in the first practice even in the track limit. And that was not the end of the evil, because at the end of the afternoon session, which he had tackled with a 20-minute delay, he was on the crawl.
Team boss Christian Horner hoped for a sensor problem – and consoled himself with the fact that his second protégé Daniel Ricciardo set the best time of the day. The Australian, who had scored his sixth GP victory at China’s last showdown, was also fast in the race trim.
However, not alone: Ferrari ace Kimi Raikkonen proved both on a fast lap and in endurance not only his class. He also showed that you can put up top times in the red racer from Maranello – what his teammate Sebastian Vettel has not yet succeeded.
The two silver arrows, which had to admit in unison after the second practice session, that the competition from Italy and Milton Keynes was in the lead, were also struggling. Whether the Mercedes drivers Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas in the fight for the Pole can have a say, depends on how well the measures worked, the world champion team has worked out overnight.
If you do not want to miss the hunt for the grid, here you will find all TV times for the fourth World Cup weekend in Azerbaijan.
