BIOGRAPHY

The Baku City Circuit in Azerbaijan is scheduled to host the Baku European Grand Prix from 2016.

The 6.006 km (3.732 mile) anti-clockwise circuit was designed by Hermann Tilke and starts adjacent to Azadliq Square. The track then loops around Government House before heading west to Maiden Tower.

At this point the track has a narrow uphill traversal and then circles the Old City before opening up onto a 2.2 km (1.4 mi) stretch along Neftchilar Avenue back to the start line.

In December 2013, Bernie Ecclestone suggested that the race would be run in 2016 but later said that because the Korean Grand Prix organisers were in breach of contract, it would be moved to 2015. However, in July 2014 it was announced that the race's debut would be delayed until 2016.
