3. Formula 1 – Azerbaijan Grand Prix: Who takes pole in Baku?
Since its creation in 2017, the Azerbaijan Grand Prix in Baku has never crowned the same poleman twice. Rosberg (in 2016 under the name Grand Prix d’Europe), Hamilton, Vettel, Bottas and Leclerc, that’s it for the list of the fastest men on Saturday in qualifying. Since Max Verstappen and Sergio Pérez are still missing from the list, the desire is great to bet on a Red Bull this Saturday, from 4 p.m.
