J.U. should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
I enjoyed to watch the race, the track isnīt bad, thatīs for sure! However, the lack of atmosphere is typical for Baku. I was there in may this year and almost everything in the city-centre is artificial. I doubt if there will ever be a kind of atmosphere. The facades are perfectly renovated, everything is clean and reminds you of other cities in Europe. Itīs kind of soulless. Thatīs not bad, but it doesnīt fit when you consider that most people in Azerbaijan are still very, very poor (one of the reasons why there arenīt many spectators). I talked to some people and they didnīt care about F1 and/or arenīt able to afford the prices.

I agree, no matter how good the race, the lack of spectators are telling. That's something Liberty need to keep in mind with regards to which races go on the calendar

Yep, I would think they would like many more like that. Fewer spectators keeps the costs down - especially for security needs.

Mind you, did someone mention Maria Carey?

That would eliminate the cost savings.

Sounds like the sort of place they should earmark for the first all electric F1 GP. Seek out a race strategy for recharging the batteries during one of the red flag periods .... having a 3 car team might be useful for that purpose.

Yes, I spotted Mariah Carey. At first I thought it was the Michelin Man.

Liberty have been mentioning getting more places where the spectators are and putting on good event for them too, so hopefully lessons are learned from Baku

I believe that the manufacturers of baby carriages have been delighted with the coverage.

By the way who is Mariah Carey is she Chase's wife?

Shows yet again what happens when these prima donnas race at a track with no run off - they hit each other or the walls!
