PREMA heads from the tight streets of Monaco to the long straights of Baku, Azerbaijan, for round 3 of the FIA Formula 2 Championship.
Like in Monte Carlo, set-up will be crucial, meaning the Italian outfit will have to perform from the start of the weekend.
However, unlike around the streets of Monaco, with the long straights and run-off space at the end of them, there are opportunities to overtake.
The team head into the weekend with rookie Oscar Piastri second in the drivers’ championship.
The Australian already has one win so far and is focused on keeping the momentum going.
His teammate, Robert Shwartzman, has shown great potential so far, but hard luck in the first two rounds hasn’t brought the results.
However, the Russian is determined to make his experience shown, despite never driving around Baku before.
Rene Rosin, PREMA Team Principal, said: “Running at Baku presents us with some unique situations. The mix of different types of corners and the typical challenges of street course racing make it incredibly tricky.
“However, we had decent results there in the past, and we have two really adaptable drivers. They showed us so much potential in the first two rounds of the season that we feel they have what we need to be contenders.”
PREMA is working to maximize everything to stay at the front and fight for the wins.
The team will head to the track on Friday for the practice session and qualifying. Races one and two will occur on Saturday, and the Feature Race will be held on Sunday.
