In the round-up: Toro Rosso’s Pierre Gasly says he is impressed by Force India and Williams’ sudden resurgence in Baku.

What they say

The Force India drivers headed the midfield while Williams were close to reaching Q3 – a development Gasly didn’t entirely anticipate:

I’m massively surprised with Force India and Williams. Of course we know it’s a power unit track so we expected them to be much better than on other tracks. But they made a massive step. They boost things in a way which works really well for this kind of track that we didn’t really understand.

Ricciardo: ‘I take around 100 flights a year, so I need stamina’ (The Guardian)

“My year consists of 20% driving and 80% media, marketing and travel. I take around 100 flights a year, so it requires stamina. I always push through sickness; if I woke up with a vomiting bug I would still make it on track.”
