Lewis Hamilton believes Red Bull will benefit from an advantage down the straights in Azerbaijan with the team expected to run their flexible rear wing.
The FIA has introduced a Technical Directive to clamp down on the flexing of wings, with more stringent tests being introduced from June 15. That means teams can still run their current designs in Baku, with Red Bull expected to be one of them. Hamilton is hopeful the matter will be resolved in the future, but he believes it will provide an advantage this weekend.
"I think regardless of what I think, it doesn't really make a difference," Hamilton told RacingNews365.com and other members of the media. "So I'm not looking to get headlines with it.
"I heard about it, I spoke about it and the fact is they pass the tests that are given for this weekend. So we proceed in the way things are. Of course it's an advantage on the straights, it can give good time.
"We'll just try and be the best we can with what we have. Hopefully, the future will be better in terms of how they measure those sort of things."
Hamilton didn't have a great weekend in Monaco, finishing in seventh and voicing his frustration with how Mercedes performed. However he pointed out that he was proud of how the team responded in the days after the race.
"The debriefs were great," Hamilton added. "Really proud, naturally, to just work with such a determined and really committed group of people. There's never any finger pointing, we just work together, we have difficult discussions, we don't feel out of place to question people's opinions.
"We sparked a lot of debate and had a huge deep dive into what we can do better. That's why we are the great team we are."
