Horner ready for Azerbaijan GP challenge: Mercedes have been mighty there

Can Red Bull make it back-to-back wins? Christian Horner is optimistic about his team's chances in Azerbaijan, but he is still keeping a close eye on Mercedes.

After claiming victory in the streets of Monaco, Red Bull's Christian Horner expects a challenge of a different type this weekend at the F1 Azerbaijan GP.

Max Verstappen leads the championship after a sparkling display in Monte Carlo saw him leapfrog Lewis Hamilton in the standings. Although Monaco and Azerbaijan are both street circuits, they are very different in terms layout. It's a place where Mercedes have thrived in the past, and Horner expects it to be another tough battle between the two teams.

"Next up we have the Azerbaijan Grand Prix in Baku, which is another street track but it is very different to Monaco," Horner told RedBull.com.

"Mercedes have been mighty there but we did win with Daniel [Ricciardo] in 2017. It is an unforgiving street circuit and anything can happen. Overtaking is possible, unlike at Monte Carlo, and the characteristics of the circuit are very interesting."

"You have the slow bits past the fortress walls and then you have that massive straight with a couple of kinks in it. It is going to be fascinating to see how all the teams fare at this type of circuit.

Ferrari impressed last time out in Monaco, with Charles Leclerc taking pole. Although the Monegasque driver wasn't able to take the grid after crashing at the end of Q3, teammate Carlos Sainz managed to finish the race in second.

Horner is keen to see whether the Scuderia can carry their form this weekend.

"Of course it will also be interesting to see too if Ferrari's form carries through because that will be great for the championship. Seeing six cars in contention and fighting for wins is better than having just two," Horner concluded.
