Hello and welcome to Express Sport‘s coverage of today’s Azerbaijan Grand Prix on the sunny streets of Baku.
Charles Leclerc will be hoping to close the gap to Max Verstappen in the Drivers’ Championship standings by taking victory after claiming yet another pole position at the end of yesterday’s qualifying session.
The latter will start from third place on the grid but will be determined to work his way up the order despite the impressive pace of his Red Bull team-mate, Sergio Perez, over the duration of the weekend to date.
It seems as though it will be another painful race for Mercedes, though, with Ferrari and Red Bull very much in a league of their own around the twists and turns of this iconic street circuit.
We’re just 40 minutes away from lights out in Baku. Who will come out on top at the end of today’s 51-lap contest?
