With three races now in the books, Formula 1 begins its journey back from Asia towards its European heartland with a stop in Baku this weekend for the Azerbaijan Grand Prix.

F1's youngest race, Baku joined the calendar in 2016 to stage the European Grand Prix before taking on a more national identity the following year when it produced one of the most exciting races in recent memory.

On-track clashes, Safety Cars, a red flag and a moment of madness from Sebastian Vettel saw tensions spill over, all paving the way for Daniel Ricciardo to charge from P10 on the grid and claim a famous victory for Red Bull.

Ricciardo drew comparisons to his Baku win following a similarly surprising victory in China two weeks ago as he charged from sixth to first in the space of just eight laps, capitalising on the situation around him to secure top honours.

Baku will be looking to write more F1 history this year, so make sure you don't miss it. Here are all the details on how and where to watch the Azerbaijan Grand Prix this weekend.
