Facts about Baku City Circuit
A mixture of wide and open and tight and twisty. The long main straight along the Baku shoreline is a slipstreaming mecca, and with cars able to run three abreast into Turn 1, the action often looks more IndyCar than F1. However from there, the track loops around into the city’s narrow, winding Icheri Sheher old town, dramatically wending past Baku’s medieval city walls. As in Monaco, the slightest mistakes are punished quickly and severely, while set-up-wise, the teams are forced to choose between downforce for the twisty bits and less drag for the straight.
