They took the position of marshals of the race. As you know, marshals care about the safety of pilots and other issues. Marshals are the working personnel of the autodrome. They are located around the track, their duties include taking care of safety: evacuating fireballs and pilots from dangerous positions, warning pilots with flags about obstacles and dangers on the track. Before the races, they trained under the close attention of experienced Azerbaijani colleagues.
The most important element of Formula 1 is safety, and the inexperience of the marshals can lead to a mistake at the cost of life. But after a series of training sessions, guys gained experience and were looking forward to giving all their strength to the races.
Each time one of the organizers came to the marshals’ base, located in the Athletes’ Village encouraged the guys, provided all kinds of support and assistance.
