6 i didnt think it was a bad race. fairly typical imo.

if i have any issue, it is that the place does not seem to be teaming over with people. all those balconies and i saw one old lady with her grandkid and they werent even wearing team kit. there were some people on one roof but again not a large number.

whats the point of a street race if its not going to bring in people. i dont see this race lasting through to the end of their contract. i actually think its a bad look for F1.

very disappointing race as mercs ran away with it and very few incidents which to be honest we were all expecting, gave it a 4

I'm not sure if they care whether there are people there to watch it trackside - the country are paying to presumably make people aware of Baku and Azerbaijan. I have to say from what I've seen it looks like an incredible place to visit - job done?

It's certainly a lot different to when I was there in 1999.

actually think they just signed an extension so they must be doing well. certainly they have presented their city in a favorable way so on that front it is a success.

this is more coming from a personal bias, but if the crowd isnt there for a live sporting event then i tend to find myself wondering why i should bother watching it on TV.

the roar of the crowd and all that.

thinking about that though maybe its a bit of an outmoded way of thinking. size of the global internet audience, how many people can you connect with via social media, is the viewing experience integrated into my cell phone.

i have to admit that i do enjoy following along with twitter to see live comments, reactions to incidents etc. it does add to the experience maybe even more so then hearing the roar of the crowd!

Without wishing to veer off-topic for too long, can you elaborate, Peter?

Yes, there was only one skyscraper and that was on fountain square, the Radisson SAS hotel. The square around the castle was full of cafes and great kebab restaurants.

You needed a visa before arrival.

The coast where the fountain is, was covered in oily substances and the oil wells out towards the south were heavily polluted. I could go on but my impression is that the place has been cleaned up dramatically.

4. I started to watch it on Tuesday night and actually fell asleep.

Not the most riveting of races, was it?
