Baku is a beautiful city and holding the 2016 Formula 1 Grand Prix of Europe here will attract more tourists, David Campbell, a fan of F1, who came to Azerbaijan from Scotland, told on June 17.

Such international competitions contribute to the country’s popularity in the world, he said.

Campbell also noted Baku is a safe city.

Azerbaijan is hosting the 2016 Formula 1 Grand Prix of Europe for the first time June 17 – June 19. The Baku circuit, which is slightly over 6 kilometers, will have the racers to go 51 laps. Overall, 11 teams, each with two drivers, will compete in the race.

GP2 first race, Formula 1 third practice session and Formula 1 qualifying will be held on the second day of the races on June 18, while the GP2 second race and 2016 Formula 1 Grand Prix of Europe will be held on the last day of the races, June 19.
