Mick Schumacher has emphasized the challenge of the Azerbaijan/Canada double-header.

Double-header race weekends in F1 usually connect venues that are relatively close to each other. However, it is not the case regarding Azerbaijan and Canada as almost 9000 kilometers separate Baku and Montreal. Drivers, teams, essential staff have to cover a big distance in a matter of several days.

“For everybody, not just for us drivers, it’s a tough journey,” Schumacher commented on the double-header.

“We go from one continent to another within a few days, which is crazy that it is that way, but that’s how it is and everyone has to handle it.

“I’m sure once everyone gets back to Europe, it will be slightly less stressful to get cars ready, pack up to leave a track and try to make it to the next race.

“It’s just more of a rhythm when we get to Europe but it’s still a huge amount of stress – albeit less than going from Azerbaijan to Canada.”
