The team Red Bull has scored a double in the first day of free practice of the Azerbaijan Grand Prix de F1. Dutch Max Verstappen, leader of the tournament, dominated in the first test in the street of Baku; while the Mexican Sergio Pérez he was the fastest in the second, also setting the best time of the day.

However, the most striking news at this start of the sixth round of the championship was the loss of direction of Mercedes, which failed to place any of its drivers in the Top 10, a historical circumstance since its dominance of Formula 1 began back in 2014.

The 11th place in English Lewis Hamilton, with a second lost compared to Checo Pérez, and the 16th of the Finn Valtteri Bottas, who lost more than two, confirmed the problems of the German team on the Azeri street circuit, where the Briton now has a bit more difficult to get back on track after losing the World Championship lead in Monte Carlo.

Ferrari, for its part, it maintains the prominence that it achieved in the last Monaco Grand Prix. The Spanish Carlos Sainz, second in the Monegasque event, he finished third in both sessions (in the afternoon just over a tenth behind the leading time).

The fourth square of Charles Leclerc, which destroyed the front wing of his car after hitting the wall at low speed, reaffirmed the hopeful start of the Scuderia.

The activity will continue on Saturday with a new free practice and qualification, which will begin at 9 o'clock in Argentina.
