You'd be surprised at how incredible some areas of Azerbaijan does look. Either way, the guy organising the GP is a crook.

It doesn't matter, because moni.

Seriously though, I watched, I want to say FIA GT race, and for me is a pretty neat track.

Of course, Azerbaijan has a looot of oil.

And the Baku track used with Blancpain GT isn't to be used, much of the circuit doesn't meet regulations to hold F1.

I seem to have read somewhere that the circuit will be part of a gigantic new development à-la-Palm Isles in Dubai, and which will also include the world's tallest tower. If it does indeed happen, that in itself might be a decent reason to have an F1 race.

New circuit for a new audience... sure why not. Also, why isn't it being called the Azerbaijani Grand Prix? O_o

If this is the case, development most likely will be completed by the same people as Abu Dhabi-KBR who develop oil rigs for Azerbaijan.

There's a report that Eric Boullier has asked that the FIA withdraw the credential of a journalist from Sport Bild who asked the team bosses if they would race in North Korea. OK, Eric.  scratch

The FIA told Eric to eff off.

I heard about that. A journalist asked something along the lines of "Would the teams race in North Korea if Bernie told them to?" and Christian Horner promptly lost his shit  Laughing
