Officials from the Hockenheimring have stated it is too late for them to host the German Grand Prix after the financially-stricken Nurburgring pulled out of their turn to run the race this year, meaning F1 is almost certain to miss out Germany for the first time since 1955. It's a good thing that as another European host fades the rather tenuously named Baku European Grand Prix will soon take its place, right?
Having announced the deal with F1 last July, Azerbaijan’s capital Baku later revealed that the 3.75 mile street track would combine both the old and new city before finishing with a very long stretch on highways next to the Caspian Sea, providing what would be F1’s longest straight by a full kilometre.
What do you think of the Baku circuit? Should F1 be leaving more historic hosts like Germany for new destinations like this? Comment below!
