Where to watch the action at the 2023 Azerbaijan Grand Prix
From grandstands to the Paddock Club, here are the best places to watch the action at Baku City Circuit. The 2023 Azerbaijan Grand Prix is on 27-30 April.
One of the longest circuits on the Formula 1® calendar winds its way through the streets of the Azerbaijani capital, which offers a fascinating blend of modern and ancient architecture. Beginning on the foreshore of the Caspian Sea next to the imposing Government House, the Hermann Tilke-designed circuit passes modern skyscrapers before a narrow section that skirts around the 12th century Maiden Tower and ancient walls of the old city.
This grandstand takes its name from the boulevard along the Caspian seashore where it is positioned. From the Bulvar Grandstand, you’ll see the cars flash past at maximum speed on their way to completing a lap of the circuit, as well as setting up passing moves into the first corner, with bonus views of the imposing Museum Center building. Starter Ticket Package include a 3-Day Seat in the Bulvar Grandstand plus Exclusive Pit Lane Walk, Guided Track Tour and Championship Trophy Photo in Baku.
Located adjacent to the Bulvar Grandstand on the straight leading to the start-finish line, but with additional views of the opposite section of track, between Turns 5-6. The Sahil and Bulvar Grandstands are also very conveniently located close to the F1 Fanzone and the beachfront boulevard. Sit in the Sahil Grandstand with a Trophy Ticket Package, which also includes an Exclusive Pit Lane Walk, Guided Track Tour and Inside F1® event with a guest appearance by an F1 media personality or driver.
Also known as the Main Grandstand, Absheron overlooks the pits complex on the start-finish straight and the first corner, plus the imposing Government House building. Absheron is best for fans who want to check out the race build up and start, pits action and podium celebrations after the race. The first corner is also good for overtaking and incidents: This is where Daniel Ricciardo completed an awesome move here on the way to victory in 2017 and crashed out with teammate Max Verstappen in 2018. The Absheron Grandstand is the only covered grandstand in Baku. Hero Ticket Package include a seat in the Absheron Grandstand plus access to an exciting range of trackside activities at Baku City Circuit.
