Azerbaijan Tyre Selection

We are back with another race week, but this time we are going around the street of Baku! Where Formula 2 will also be joining us.

The tyres which have been selected are: C3 (Hard), C4 (Medium), C5 (Soft.

This is the softest trio of compounds in Pirelli’s range, which are well suited to the tight corners on this city circuit as well as the long straights where the cars can reach a maximum speed of 340kph.

The most common strategy for the Azerbaijan Grand Prix is a one stopper, although some teams stopped twice last year to take advantage of a virtual safety car before the chequered flag.

The race was held at the beginning of June in 2022, with thermal degradation becoming a factor due to the high asphalt temperature.

With having such technical sections, especially around the famous Turn 9 in the old city centre. The teams tend to go for a low to medium downforce set up in Baku.
