2019 Azerbaijan Grand Prix

2019 Bacu Grand PrixIf you have been following Formula One, you will know that the 2018 season came to a somewhat predictable end with Lewis Hamilton claiming yet another title for Mercedes. Ferrari and a frustrated Sebastian Vettel had to settle for second place yet again. However, this a new year, a brand-new season with new cars, updated specs and a chance for the drivers to do it all again. One race that has the potential to split the good from the great is the Azerbaijan Grand Prix.

Track Details and Race History

Located in Bacu, the Azerbaijan track is the newest street circuit in Formula One, joining the ranks of Melbourne, Monaco and Singapore. The first Baku race was held in 2016 in the form of the European Grand Prix. In 2017 the race became the Azerbaijan Grand Prix, which officially has had two runs. Being that it is only three years old, the drivers and manufacturers don’t have much of a history to draw on, which makes it quite exciting.

The circuit is a crazy mix of long straight stretches and twisty light turns. The circuit is so wide at points that three cars can ride abreast at the first turn. There is also the incredibly long straight, which sees the cars hit almost maximum speeds, making for some serious slipstream strategies.

A Closer Look at Last Year

Shaking off the absurdities of 2017, both Sebastian Vettel and Lewis Hamilton were determined to claim a win in Azerbaijan. The 2017 race ended with the two fighting behind the safety card while Daniel Riccardo took the race. 2018 also had its fare share of drama with crashes, safety cars and the race leading (Bottas) experiencing a puncture in the final minutes of the race. In the end it was Hamilton who took the win while Vettel was passed on the final laps to miss out on a podium finish.

Dates and Betting Options

The 2019 Azerbaijan Grand Prix main race will take place on the 28th of April. As with any Formula One race, the betting options are extensive and adaptable for both novice bettors and experienced punters.

If you are just starting out, the best bet to place is the race winner. This involves predicting which driver will win the race. You can also bet on which driver will secure pole position and who will set the fastest lap during the main race. Other options include predicting how many pit stops will be made by each car, if the safety car will be needed, and how many cars will finish the race.
