With the first set of flyaway races almost complete, Formula 1 returns to Azerbaijan this weekend for round four of the 2019 season.

Lewis Hamilton returns to Baku leading the F1 drivers' championship after a dominant victory for Mercedes in China last time out, having led home teammate Valtteri Bottas to give the German marque its third straight one-two finish.

Ferrari's lack of form so far this year has left many scratching their heads, but with its hopes for this year seemingly pinned on its straight-line speed advantage, and with the Baku City Circuit boasting one of the longest straights of the year, could Sebastian Vettel and Charles Leclerc hit back?

At a race that has offered some dramatic moments in recent F1 history - last year produced heartbreak for Bottas and a clash between Red Bull teammates Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo; 2017 saw Hamilton and Vettel come to blows behind the Safety Car - there is sure to be more drama written on the streets of Baku.
