F1's first race in Baku since 2019 promises to be a thriller following a chaotic qualifying session, which saw Ferrari's Charles Lerclerc take pole position from the Mercedes of Lewis Hamilton. Max Verstappen qualified a disappointing third in the lead Red Bull ahead of an impressive Pierre Gasly in the AlphaTauri.

Sergio Perez and Valtteri Bottas could manage only sixth (after a penalty for Lando Norris) and 10th respectively.

The difference between Mercedes’ stumble and the fall of F1 giants

OPINION: Mercedes endured its worst season of the hybrid Formula 1 era, but was mercifully spared its first winless campaign in over a decade late on. It has owned up to the mistakes it made which led to its troubled W13. And while its task to return to title-challenging contention is not small, its 2022 season seems more like a blip than the beginning of a downward spiral.

How Red Bull's dynamic leader Mateschitz shaped its F1 philosophy

The death of Dietrich Mateschitz last month has not only deprived Red Bull of its visionary founder, it has shorn Formula 1 of one of its most influential benefactors. Mateschitz himself was famously media-shy, preferring to let the brand do the talking on his behalf. And, while it’s now normal to speak of Red Bull F1 titles and champions made, Mateschitz never assumed it would be easy or even possible – as ANTHONY ROWLINSON discovered during this previously unpublished interview from 2006…
