Baku City Circuit
Formula 1 Azerbaijan Grand Prix 2022:
F1’s most unpredictable race set to launch ticket sales on February 22nd as fans welcomed back to Baku for the first time since 2019
 
Baku, Azerbaijan (18th February) - Baku City Circuit (BCC) – the Promoter of the Formula 1 Azerbaijan Grand Prix - is thrilled to announce that tickets for the most unpredictable race in F1 are due to go on sale on Tuesday, February 22nd. The arrival of F1 in Baku on the weekend of June 10th - 12th, will mark the return of fans to the Home of the Street Fighters for the first time since 2019.
 
The Formula 1 Azerbaijan Grand Prix 2022 will be the 6th F1 race weekend to be staged on the streets of Azerbaijan’s capital city and follows on from the successful return of F1 to Baku last summer when the greatest drivers in the world delivered another spectacular race behind closed doors. Sergio Perez ‘s surprise victory maintained the event’s ongoing and unparalleled streak of delivering a new winner for every race it has hosted to date.
 
Tickets to the 2022 race weekend are on sale to fans at home and abroad and will offer up a full F1 racing schedule as well as the F2 support series featuring the racing superstars of tomorrow.
 
Three-day and single day tickets are available in a variety of categories, ranging from General Admission ‘Roaming Tickets’, to Grandstand to VIP Hospitality and Paddock Club to ensure there is a suitable option for everyone to enjoy the pinnacle of motorsport live and in person at one of the fastest and most challenging street circuits on the planet.
 
Prices range from US$220 - US$760 for three-day grandstand tickets and US$70 - US$120 for single-day Roaming tickets.
 
Three-day grandstand tickets for Juniors (under 16) are on sale from US$150 – US$540.
 
Furthermore, fans who purchased tickets for the cancelled 2020 Formula 1 Azerbaijan Grand Prix can use those tickets for the 2022 event at no extra cost, providing they have not yet requested a refund.
 
The priority of BCC in organizing this major event will always continue to be the health and safety of all attendees, especially as we still face many uncertainties related to the Covid-19 pandemic.  As such, the entertainment offering will be scaled back this year with the evening post-race concerts unfortunately not taking place across the 2022 race weekend.
 
BCC’s beloved boulevard vending area will remain open with a range of roaming entertainment on offer – in line with Covid 19 health and safety protocols - as well as a variety of food, drink & merchandise stalls to keep fans fully engaged & fuelled up in between racing sessions.
 
BCC’s Executive Director, Arif Rahimov, urged fans to be a part of the next exciting F1 chapter to come to Baku: “We are delighted to announce the launch of ticket sales for the sixth Formula 1 race weekend in Baku. Although we had to organize last year’s race without the presence of our beloved fans, the race itself garnered a huge global audience watching from home that witnessed a thrilling race with another unexpected ending. We are absolutely certain that this year will be no exception. We therefore encourage all Formula 1 fans to move fast and get their tickets for this spectacular experience as soon as possible!”
 
The successful return of F1 to Baku in 2021 after a year’s Covid-enforced absence delivered another classic race that will live long in the memory, culminating in a hard-earned win for Red Bull Racing’s Sergio Perez – the fifth winner in five different races at Baku City Circuit! The popular Mexican driver crossed the finish line ahead of Aston Martin’s Sebastian Vettel & AlphaTauri’s Pierre Gasly, producing a hugely unexpected podium at the race that always delivers the unpredictable.
 
The Formula 1 Azerbaijan Grand Prix 2022 is set to be another spectacular battle on the streets of Baku. Can any of the previous winners manage to break the streak and become the first driver to win multiple races in Baku? Or will we see another new winner celebrate on the podium? There is only one way to find out.
