This unique experiencehas proven to be a highlight for fans in the three previous races in Baku as thousands of passionate F1 followers get to enter the sport’s inner sanctum to experience the teams’ engineers and mechanics applying the finishing touches to the cars in their respective garages ahead of what is increasingly being recognised as the most unpredictable F1 race weekend on the calendar.
The 2018F1 race weekend in Baku had a tough act to follow after the previous year’s dramatic and unexpected outcome. Expectations were high for another exciting and unpredictable race through Baku’s high-speed straights and winding, narrow streets during its new late-April setting. After a now-traditional high octane start, the race appeared to be settling into a familiar pattern with Sebastian Vettel seemingly heading for an uneventful victory. Butthis is Baku and nothing is ever uneventful here.
With 11 laps to go the two Red Bull drivers, Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen took each other out of the race after a long running battle all afternoon when they collided in controversial circumstances heading into Turn 1 before Haas’s Romain Grosjean inexplicably slammed into a wall while the safety car was out. When the dust settled, it was Valtteri Bottas who led the race, with Vettel dropping back to fourth after an ambitious move to retake the lead went awry.
However, the streets of Baku had one more surprise left when Bottas was forced to abandon certain victory when his car sustained a puncture caused by debris left on the track. Somehow, Lewis Hamilton ended up taking victory ahead of Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen and a jubilant Sergio Perez in his Force India – the Mexican’s second podium in three years in Baku. Another thrilling battle on the streets of Baku that lived up to its pre-race hype to always expect the unexpected.
BCC’s Executive Director, Arif Rahimov, welcomed today’s announcement and urged fans to make sure they don’t lose out on this discount opportunity: “We are delighted to announce the launch of our ticket sales for the fourth Formula 1 race weekend in Baku. We value all the fans who come to Baku every year and we believe that our early bird discount offering will once again act as a strong incentive for people from both home and abroad to book their weekend tickets as early as possible.”
“Last year’s race was once more a spectacular occasion, producing one of the most remarkable finishes to an F1 race in recent memory and further cementing Baku’s reputation as the most unpredictable race weekend of the year. We are once more expecting the unexpected when F1 arrives back in town in 2019! I would advise fans to act fast and get their tickets while they are still available!”
