Formula 1 cars went to the Baku street track this Friday for the first practice sessions of the Azerbaijan GP. The main surprises were the lack of good performance of the Mercedes, especially with the 11th place of Lewis Hamilton, in addition to the Ferraris being well, in the third and fourth positions in the second free practice. Not surprisingly, Sergio Pérez and Max Verstappen were the fastest. Check out the tips that the Brazilian Motorsport.com team gives for the rest of the weekend:

Max Verstappen arrives in Baku as F1 leader for the first time in his career. Red Bull and he have already overcome greater adversities this year and in Azerbaijan they should confirm their favoritism, especially since the two Mercedes were not as usual. Victory: Max Verstappen

Ferrari drivers did very well on Friday, with Carlos Sainz and Charles Leclerc in 3rd and 4th positions respectively. The time is good, but both drivers adopt a more conservative speech regarding possible good results in the race. It's worth betting on one of them for the first places, especially in Sainz, who won the podium in Monaco. Those who choose Leclerc will also be safe. Top-6: Carlos Sainz

Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes did not reach the current level for nothing. Even with a very bad Friday, the last Azerbaijani GP winners should react. The current car has good race pace and when it comes to race strategy, the German team is better than Red Bull. Don't rule out a podium to the seven-time champion. Top-3: Lewis Hamilton
