Where to watch & stream Azerbaijan Grand Prix 2023

The Azerbaijan Grand Prix made its F1 debut in 2017, with the Baku Street Circuit having hosted the European Grand Prix the previous season. The tight streets of the Azeri capital Baku have hosted every F1 round in the country.

Despite being almost in the middle east, this race's session times are on par with most European rounds, with the race taking place in the late afternoon and early evening.

When it comes to the most successful drivers in Azerbaijan, it's a very even spread. Nobody has won the race more than once, but Red Bull have triumphed in both of the last two seasons.

Sergio Perez (2021) and Max Verstappen (2022) are the two most recent winners. Sir Lewis Hamilton (2018) and Valtteri Bottas (2019) are the only two other drivers to have won on the current grid.

Baku has played host to some chaotic Grands Prix, with the encounters in 2017, 2018 and 2021 proving to be thrilling encounters.
