A mix of tight twisty corners and long straights, the Baku City Circuit is 3.7 miles long. The 2022 Azerbaijan Grand Prix will take place on 12 June with a 51-lap race.

From the screenshots, Frontier has accurately recreated the Baku city circuit in F1 Manager 2022, right down to the narrow castle section and building landmarks.

Coupled with remarkably accurate driver face scans, F1 Manager 2022’s visuals look fantastic, even at this early stage.
