McLaren driver Lando Norris says he is feeling back to his usual self after two races spent struggling with tonsillitis.
Norris raced to back-to-back points finished in Spain and Monaco, despite needing regular check-ups from the team doctor.
The 11-day gap between track action in Monaco and Azerbaijan has allowed the 22-year-old time to rest and recover.
"I’m feeling back to my usual self after the weekend off and I’ve recovered well after a tough two weeks," confirmed Norris.
"I’m excited to see what I can do going into this next double header, so let’s get stuck in."

Norris: Anything can happen in Baku
Norris was best of the rest in qualifying for the Monaco Grand Prix as he waited patiently in the hope of finding a way onto the podium, just as he did at Imola.
But Baku so often throws up surprising results with Sebastian Vettel and Pierre Gasly both standing on the podium in 2021
“I’m excited to be heading to Baku. It’s cool to be at another street circuit and last year’s race showed that anything can happen," he said.
"It will be great to see what we can do in the new cars around this unique circuit. I’ve finished in the points both times I’ve raced at this track so, hopefully, I can keep that up and get some more points for the team this year."
