  • Azerbaijan is one of the newest additions to the Formula One calendar, hosting a race since 2016. Architect Hermann Tilke again went to work, designing a 6.003-km street circuit in the capital city of Baku. The track is the second-longest on the calendar after Spa-Francorchamps.

    Drivers are treated to a very special tour of the city while lapping the track, with the layout passing famous sights such as the Maiden Tower, the historic old town and the beach promenade. The pits are directly in front of the Government House building.

    The circuit features the 90-degree bends now obligatory for street racetracks, but mixed in with long straights and some high-speed, sweeping sections towards the end of the lap.

    As the circuit is not a permanent race track, grip, or the lack of it, plays an important role. The track must first be rubbered in. Having plenty of mechanical grip is also important in this respect so that drivers can power out of the tight, slow-speed corners. Last but not least, engine power is also a decisive factor at Baku, especially in view of the long straight towards the end of the lap.
