Video: F1 drivers comment on upcoming 2017 Baku F1 race

The world’s top Formula 1 drivers have expressed their excitement at returning to Baku this summer where they will once again take on the many challenges presented by the newest and fastest street track, Baku City Circuit, at the 2017 FORMULA 1 AZERBAIJAN GRAND PRIX.

Speaking exclusively to Baku City Circuit ahead of the second successive F1 race weekend in Azerbaijan, the likes of Valtteri Bottas (Mercedes AMG Petronas Formula One Team), Daniel Ricciardo & Max Verstappen (Red Bull Racing), Felipe Massa (Williams Martini Racing), Sergio Perez (Sahara Force India F1 Team) and two-time World Champion and last year’s Official Ambassador for the race in Baku, Fernando Alonso (McLaren Honda) all expressed their delight at their impending return to beautiful Baku and the fastest street circuit in F1. This summer they will face another testing weekend taking on the circuit’s tight, narrow sequences – this time in the new, wider 2017 cars – as well as its 90-degree turns, downhill sections and long straights that combine to make Baku City Circuit one of the most daunting tracks on the calendar.
