Why Verstappen isn't the biggest fan of F1 street circuits

F1 will take to the streets of Baku for the Azerbaijan Grand Prix this weekend. Although it's a street circuit like Monaco, Max Verstappen pointed out he prefers driving on more traditional tracks.

Although Max Verstappen took victory at the F1 Monaco GP, the Red Bull driver prefers traditional circuits over those on the streets, like the one that will play host to action this weekend in Azerbaijan.

The Dutchman currently lead the F1 Drivers' Championship, four points up on Lewis Hamilton following a sparkling display in Monaco. It was the first time Verstappen finished on the podium in the principality and he admits he has a preference when it comes to the types of circuits F1 visit.

"In general, I am more a fan of traditional circuits and that does not include Monaco in Baku," Verstappen told RacingNews365.com and other members of the media. "Of course it is the same for everybody and you always want to get the best out of it.

"It is certainly not an easy circuit, so that makes it interesting. I find it very difficult at the moment to see how things stand in relation to Mercedes. You can drive on many different wing settings, but in the end you arrive at the same lap time. We have to wait and see how it all goes.

"More or less street circuits? No, more traditional circuits, I like that better. I get more pleasure from a traditional circuit, where you can push more on the limit than on a street circuit."

Although Monaco and Baku are both street circuits, they are very different when it comes to setup. Verstappen knows it will be tricky to find the right balance, with the wind adding another variable.

"It's very difficult to find a good set-up that works in every corner, it's not that easy," Verstappen added. "It's hard to say, we'll see what it will be.

"Some corners you have to go straight through when you block and then go backwards again. Especially with the wind too, it's blowing very hard, so that's not going to make it easy."
