The 2022 Azerbaijan Grand Prix is set to go lights out on Sunday, June 12th at 7:00 a.m ET on ESPN. The race takes place at Baku City Circuit, which is the newest street circuit for Formula One. The race is 190.17 total miles with 51 laps. Sergio Perez won the 2021 Azerbaijan Grand Prix.
The qualifying round will take place on Saturday, June 11th at 10:00 a.m. ET. Qualifying is split into three rounds. All twenty drivers participate in the first round as they try to set the fastest lap time possible. The five slowest drivers are eliminated and will start Sunday's race from the back of the grid. The rest of the drivers will move onto “Q2” which is a little bit shorter but is the same concept as the first round.
The ten fastest cars will move onto the final qualifying round. This is the last ten minutes of qualifying and drivers fight for pole position (or the No. 1 spot for Sunday's race). The results of these lap times determine the order for these ten drivers on Sunday.
Max Verstappen is the current favorite to win the 2022 Azerbaijan Grand Prix with -105 odds at DraftKings Sportsbook. Last year’s victor, Perez, has +550 odds to take home the win, with Carlos Sainz at +1100 and Lewis Hamilton at +3500.
