Oracle Red Bull Racing on how they intend to bring Monaco’s Winning Strategy to the Formula One Azerbaijan Grand Prix 2022

This weekend race-winning duo Sergio Perez and Max Verstappen head to Baku in Azerbaijan with the Oracle Red Bull Racing team looking to add to their wins in both the driver and constructors’ championships. It’s a track they’ve historically had success at, with Pérez memorably winning his first race with Oracle Red Bull Racing at the street circuit last season, and they’re coming hot on the heels of a podium-winning performance in Monaco.

At the recent Monaco Grand Prix, Principal Strategy Engineer, Hannah Schmitz and the team orchestrated the pit-stop plan which ultimately led to Sergio Pérez taking the chequered flag and Max Verstappen clinching a podium place. Monaco’s strategy was a bold and proactive move.

Together with Head of Race Strategy, Will Courtenay and a skilled team, it’s their split-second strategy brilliance that was a large contributor towards Max Verstappen claiming his first FIA Formula One World Championship title last season. In this exclusive interview Hannah Schmitz, dives into how Oracle Red Bull Racing came to win in Monaco and how they intend to carry this over to Baku this weekend.

Hannah is a recognisable face to F1 fans after being beamed around the world at the Brazilian Grand Prix in 2019 when she made the call to pit Verstappen for a third time despite knowing he would initially lose the race lead. When the move resulted in the Dutchman winning, Schmitz was asked to step on the podium alongside Verstappen to collect the Constructors trophy.
