Azerbaijan Grand Prix

The Azerbaijan Grand Prix is a Formula One motor race held on the Baku City Circuit. It is a street race in

Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan. It was called European Grand Prix in 2016. It was renamed as Azerbaijan

Grand Prix, effective from the 2017 season. The Baku City Circuit is one of only six circuits to have

hosted the European Grand Prix. Brands Hatch, Donington, Jerez, Nurburgring and Valencia were the

other five circuits that hold the pride of hosting the European Grand Prix.

Nico Rosberg won the first ever event at the Baku circuit in 2016. The following seasons have also seen

distinct winners, with Daniel Ricciardo finishing on top of the podium in the 2017 Azerbaujan Grand Prix

and Brit Lewis Hamilton holding aloft the winners' trophy in 2018.

Red Bull and Mercedes have one win each in the Azerbaijan Grand Prix. The circuit has not seen any

repeat winners in terms of drivers. But Mercedes has 2 wins under their belt as a constructor in this

circuit (one in the European Grand Prix 2016 and one in the Azerbaijan Grand Prix 2018)

The circuit is 6.003km in length. The drivers take 51 laps across the circuit before the chequerer flag is

waved.

In 2018, Sebastian Vettel gained pole position clocking 1:41.498 minutes in qualifying to beat all his

competitors. But he failed to finish on the podium, as Hamilton, Kimi Raikkonen and Sergio Perez

rounded off the top three. The fastest lap in the race was recorded by Finn driver Valtteri Bottas. He

finished a lap in 1:45.149 minutes.

But the fastest times on the circuit in the Azerbaijan Grand Prix were all recorded in 2017. Lewis

Hamilton holds the fastest qualifying time with 1:40.593 minutes. The fastest lap was driven by

Sebastian Vettel as he raced his Ferrari to lap the circuit in 1:43.441 of lap 47 of the race.
