Daniel Ricciardo visits Baku City Circuit
Red Bull Racing driver Daniel Ricciardo returned to Baku - the scene of his sole victory in 2017 and one of the greatest moments in his F1 career so far- to reflect on his incredible race here at Baku City Circuit last summer. Baku is preparing to host its third successive Grand Prix in 2018 at the new date of April 27th -29th, AzerNews writes.
Ricciardo spoke of his pleasure in coming back to Baku: “I’m absolutely delighted to return to Baku. Now that the season is over and I have had some time to reflect on the year gone by, it’s fantastic to be able to come back to the scene of my best moment of 2017. I’ve never been involved in a race quite like it, starting from tenth, dropping down the placings early on and then somehow ending up winning! It was an amazing race, a driver’s dream. It was also just a lot of fun!" he said.
"This Grand Prix has already become one of my favourites. I love street circuits and this one is the fastest of the lot. The welcome I have received every time I have been here – including today – is always so open and warm. This city is truly beautiful and there is something very exciting about showcasing all the things that we love about our sport to this new audience. I really can’t wait to come back here in April and hopefully win again – perhaps with a little more of a head-start this time!” he added.
