Baku, Azerbaijan, June 16
By Maksim Tsurkov - Trend:
The Formula 1 track in Baku is a completely new track, but it looks very exciting, Sebastian Vettel, the Scuderia Ferrari driver, said at a press conference in Baku June 16.
"The whole paddock actually looks very exciting, starting from turn 8 and turning around the Old Town," said the driver, adding there should be a blind apex around the turn 10 and turn 11, which is a big challenge.
"In terms of safety standards, I think, they [organizers] have done everything they could," he said.
The 2016 Formula 1 Grand Prix of Europe to be held in Azerbaijan for the first time will start June 17 at 18:00 (GMT + 4 hours). The European Grand Prix will be held over 51 laps on the new circuit of slightly over 6 kilometers. The maximum estimated speed at the race is 340km/h.
