Azerbaijan Grand Prix

Azerbaijan Grand Prix 2023 at the Baku City Circuit is a motor racing street circuit constructed near Baku Boulevard. The track runs through a UNESCO world heritage site, and part of its cobbled streets were covered with asphalt for the first race.

A lap of the circuit is 6.003 km, making it the third-longest circuit on the Formula One calendar. The inaugural Formula One race at the circuit was the 2016 European Grand Prix and its support events.

This high speed track suits low downforce and will average 78 gear shifts per lap, is raced at 75% full throttle with 2 DRS Zones and a pit stop will cost, approximately, 16.5 seconds.  

2023 will host the first SPRINT Race of the season with a new format. Get a short explanation from our post – here
