Seven-time world champion Lewis Hamilton will be determined to bounce back after a terrible weekend in Monaco last time out. That saw him surrender his championship lead to Red Bull's Max Verstappen.

Who will win F1 Baku?

Mercedes have won three of the four previous races held at the tight Baku City Circuit – Aussie Daniel Riccardo winning in a Red Bull in 2017. Hamilton won the race in 2018. His teammate Valtteri Bottas won the last GP here in 2019.

Baku winners

Hamilton (three wins) and Verstappen (two) have won each of the first five races this season. That may finally change this weekend.

Had it not been for a tyre puncture in 2018, Valtteri Bottas would probably be a two-time winner in Azerbaijan. We're tipping him to defend his 2019 win in front of Verstappen and Hamilton.
