2022 F1 Azerbaijan GP – How to watch, session timings and more – Autosport

Following two painful races for Ferrari and Charles Leclerc, losing from winning positions at both the Spanish and Monaco GPs, the Italian squad will look to strike back in Baku this weekend.
Sergio Perez, who claimed his maiden Red Bull win at the Azerbaijan GP last year, celebrated his Monaco GP triumph by signing a new two-year contract extension at Red Bull that will keep him at the team at least until the end of the 2024 season.
The Mexican’s win allowed him to close the gap on team-mate Max Verstappen at the top of the F1 drivers’ standings, with the Dutchman leading Leclerc by nine points and Perez by 15 points. In the F1 world constructors’ championship, Red Bull heads Ferrari by 36 points.
Mercedes remains just out of reach of the top two, despite George Russell’s impressive consistency of finishing every F1 race in the top five so far this year. Team boss Toto Wolff is confident Lewis Hamilton’s luck will soon change, the seven-time world champion having been outscored by his new team-mate over the last few races due to clashes, poor strategy and getting stuck behind slower cars.
