After a break last weekend, Formula One returns for the Azerbaijan Grand Prix live from Baku. This street race always brings plenty of action, a sprinkling of chaos and more than a few Safety Cars so it’s definitely one to watch. If you fancy tuning in to all the live action you will need to sign up for a Sky contract with the telly firm continuing to have exclusive rights to all of the races. You can find all the best deals below.
Today’s race looks set to be another classic with Ferrari and Red Bull locking out the front rows of the grid. Charles Leclerc took pole in yesterday’s qualifying with Sergio Perez beating his teammate to grab second. Verstappen then lines up in third alongside Carlos Sainz.
“All pole positions feel good but this one I did not expect it because I thought Red Bull were stronger,” Leclerc said. “Especially Q1 and Q2 I struggled to see we were faster but then in Q3 I managed to do a good lap.”
Ferrari will now be looking to score maximum points after strategy mistakes during the last race in Monaco cost them the win.
However, Perez looks full of confidence after winning two weeks ago and Verstappen remains a serious threat.
So, if you fancy tuning in we’ve got full details below.
