The Baku city circuit is one of the newest street city circuits on the F1 calendar. First introduced in 2016, it has quickly become a fan favorite among street circuits. This circuit is the second longest circuit besides Spa-Francorchamps on the calendar. The 2.22 km(1.38 mi) straight is the longest on the 2021 calendar. This circuit has given us some exciting racing with the ultra wide and long straight, 90 degree corners and extremely narrow old fort wall section brings a unique challenge for the contenders.
The long straights favor teams running a low drag setup and teams with a good engine. Given the Bendgate might give Red Bull a slight advantage over Mercedes, which they(merc) will make up in their straight line speed because of the engine that they house in their car. The Championship battle is just heating up between Lewis and Max as well as Mercedes and Red Bull.
