How to watch F1 Baku live and free in Australia and start time

Posted: 12 June 2022 4:00 pm

Max Verstappen will be keen to build on his narrow lead in the F1 drivers' championship as the tour heads to Azerbaijan.

SUMMARY: F1 Baku is exclusive to Fox Sports. If you are already a Foxtel iQ customer with the Sports HD pack or have a Kayo subscription, you are all set. If not, your best option is to watch live on Kayo Sports. You can watch for free using this 14-day trial.

Coming into F1 Baku, Red Bull made it 4 wins in a row with success in Monaco last round, but it was Sergio Pérez who came out on top, snapping the 3-win run of teammate Max Verstappen.

Verstappen finished third with Ferrari coming in second and fourth.

The gap at the top of the drivers' championship is now 9 points with Verstappen ahead of Ferrari's Charles Leclerc, with Pérez back in third.

When is the F1 Baku?

The main race of F1 Azerbaijan takes place on Sunday 12 June at the Baku City Circuit from 9pm AEST. This follows the practice and qualifying rounds on Friday 10 and Saturday 11 June.

Azerbaijan Grand Prix preview

Daniel Ricciardo is facing renewed pressure after a scratchy start to the season. The Australian responded to criticism this week, saying: "I haven't forgotten how to drive".

He currently sits 11th on the drivers' championship for his McLaren team, 4 places behind teammate Lando Norris.

Ricciardo did win the first edition of this race back in 2017, with Mercedes picking up 2 wins before Sergio Pérez saluted in 2021.

After Ferrari made a bright start to the season, it has been all Red Bull in the last 6 weeks and it appears increasingly likely they'll run away with the title again.

That will be further confirmed this weekend when they get the chocolates again at F1 Baku.
