The eighth round of the 2017 Formula One season takes place this weekend at the Baku City Circuit in Azerbaijan.
The organisers claim this is the fastest street circuit on the calendar, which could prove for an exciting race as the likes of Lewis Hamilton, Valtteri Bottas, Kimi Raikkonen and Sebastian Vettel battle for precious championship points.
German driver Nico Rosberg triumphed here last year on his way to winning the drivers’ championship.
With Rosberg having retired, his former teammate Lewis Hamilton will be looking to taste victory here this time around, but will have to produce a much-improved performance on his fifth-placed finish 12 months ago.
The British driver is 22 points behind first place man Vettel in the Drivers’ World Championship but 36 points ahead of fellow Mercedes driver Valtteri Bottas.
All five sessions – three practices, qualifying and the race (2pm start) – will be shown live on Channel 4 and Sky Sports F1.
