Vesti Not Entirely Pleased With Baku Results

The round in Azerbaijan can only look positive for the PREMA Racing pair, Oliver Bearman and Frederik Vesti, with consistent results inside the top five over the weekend. However, the Dane feels he could’ve done more to maximize his potential in the Feature Race.

Starting in third, Vesti got easily swept off by ART’s Theo Pourchaire in the opening laps and had to swap his tyres to mediums earlier than most of the pack. The decision saw him leave Victor Martins in charge of his position in fourth as he fought back to claim fifth.

Though he scored vital points in the Championship that promoted him to second, he’s not entirely pleased with how the session played out.

He said: “We were fast in every session, just in Race 2, we were struggling a bit on option tyres. That meant I had to box early, got stuck in the traffic coming from the overcut, and therefore had a little bit of a difficult race.”

“Looking at our pace, we probably deserved P5, which is where we ended. We scored some good points, and we can be really happy about 95% of this weekend. We just need to fine-tune for the future.”

On his previous visit to the streets of Baku, the 21-year-old driver took an impressive maiden FIA Formula 2 victory, which made him hopeful to recreate the success.

Though his luck has fallen slightly differently for him this time, as Bearman outshined the grid by dominating every session, he is optimistic for further developments from the team. He continued, “We stay motivated and keep working.”
