FIA Formula 2 and Jehan Daruvala head from one tight street circuit in Monaco to another in Baku.
However, the street track in Baku has more opportunities to overtake because of the long straights, even with a tight section around the old part of the cities.
Jehan Daruvala is determined to be at the front again in Baku after a tough time in Monaco.
The Carlin driver heads into the third round of the Formula 2 championship eighth in the drivers’ standings and will hope that he can turn his luck around to put himself back towards the front again.
Daruvala said: “After a disappointing weekend in Monaco, I’m very happy that we are out again so soon. It’s another street circuit, and obviously, I’ve never been here before. I’m really looking forward to it, I have done everything possible in preparation, and I’ve learned from Monaco. So, I’m looking forward to being back where we belong, right at the front.
“After time on the sim, I think that the track is really nice because, unlike Monaco, you have a lot of chance to overtake, so it makes racing even more exciting. You know, in Monaco, even if you qualify in the top five, it’s hard to win.
“Here, you can pretty much win from anywhere. That’s how it has seemed, watching the races from the last couple of years, so I’m very much looking forward to that challenge.
“It’s almost Monza wing, pretty much. So, it’s going to make the middle sector and the braking zones pretty tricky.”
The Indian driver will rely on his team to help direct him during his first time at the circuit.
