Formula 1 in Baku will popularize Azerbaijan in the whole world, a tourist from Kazakhstan Sherkhan Sugurbekov told in Baku on June 18.

“Baku is a wonderful city. I believe that those who have come to Baku to watch Formula 1, will come here again as tourists and will advise their friends to visit Azerbaijan,” added the tourist.

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

The specially constructed street circuit will see F1 cars race around the stunning downtown area of Baku, incorporating its UNESCO-protected old city – Icheri Sheher historical-architectural reserve – as well as its modern skyline and beautiful Caspian Sea promenade.
