The Baku Street Circuit is a Herman Tilke planned motor racing circuit in Baku, Azerbaijan to be constructed near Baku Boulevard, right by the sea front. It is scheduled to host the second Baku European Grand Prix.
Baku is the capital and the largest city of Azerbaijan
At 28 metres below sea level Baku is the lowest lying national capital in the world and is home to approximately 3 million people.
Second F1 race in Baku sees a 28% increase in ticket sales from previous year including DOUBLE the number of international visitors
Baku City Circuit today announced that 71,541 Formula 1 fans - old and new - attended the 2017 FORMULA 1 AZERBAIJAN GRAND PRIX, the second successive street race to be hosted in the Azerbaijani capital.
This figure represents a 28% increase in ticket sales from the inaugural 2016 event in F1’s newest market. Furthermore, international visitor numbers for the race week were up 100% from last year with guests arriving from over 65 different countries to witness what turned out to be one of the most dramatic and memorable races in recent memory. Indeed, international fans accounted for a third of all overall ticket sales.
Fans certainly weren’t disappointed as Baku City Circuit played host to a race so thrilling it will live long in the memory of everyone present as well as the millions of people watching on television across the globe. Red Bull Racing’s Daniel Ricciardo secured his first win of the 2017 season with a stunning drive. Mercedes AMG Petronas’ Valtteri Bottas lived up to the title of ‘Flying Finn’ when he fought his way back from the back of the pack to surge past Williams Martini Racing’s Lance Stroll just before the young Canadian was about to cross the Finish line to secure second place. However, regardless of being pushed back to third place at the death, in many ways the day belonged to Williams’ talented Rookie driver who secured his first podium finish in his debut season in the sport – the youngest driver to ever do so.
Away from the podium, there was no shortage of intense drama and intrigue as this season’s two frontrunners Sebastian Vettel and Lewis Hamilton clashed - quite literally - in a hugely controversial incident that will be debated for the rest of the year and beyond. There were further battles and collisions between teammates – Force India’s high-flying pair in particular – while Baku fan favourite and former race Ambassador, Fernando Alonso, picked up his and McLaren Honda’s first points of the season with a ninth place finish. This race really had it all.

The six kilometre, anti-clockwise layout of the circuit was designed by famous circuit architect Hermann Tilke. The circuit is planned to start adjacent to Azadliq Square, then loop around Government House before heading west to Maiden Tower. From there the track is planned to have a narrow uphill traversal and then circle the Old City before opening up onto a 2.2 km (1.4 mi) stretch along Neftchilar Avenue back to the start line.
