Formula 1 Azerbaijan Grand Prix – How to watch, start time & more

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.
