Ride onboard for a lap of the new Baku City Circuit (VIDEO)


As the countdown to the first Formula 1 race in Azerbaijan on June 19 continues, the Baku City Circuit has released the first onboard video of the street course.

Baku is set to welcome F1 for the first time later this month, hosting the European Grand Prix on what is set to become the fastest street circuit in the sport.

Azerbaijani driver Gulhuseyn Abdullayev completed a test run of the track in a GP3 car last weekend ahead of FIA race director Charlie Whiting’s final inspection.

The Baku City Circuit released the first pictures of the closed-off track a couple of days ago, but has now followed this up with an onboard video from Abdullayev’s car.

Watch the video above to see the challenge that the 22-strong F1 grid will face later this month.
