23-25 June - How will the weather affect this year's Azerbaijan Grand Prix?

Azerbaijan became the newest addition to the Formula One calendar last year. The circuit in Baku provides the fastest street circuit in Formula One, with a combination of narrow uphill sections, top speeds and sharp corners.

How does weather affect racing?

Different weather conditions can result in very different races, and Formula 1 teams adapt their strategy accordingly, for example using different tyres in wet conditions, and taking account of cross winds which can cause stability problems at high speeds.
