A Mercedes-powered car has made it to the podium in each of the five Azerbaijan races so far.
Maylander to be busy in safety car
Barring the inaugural race in 2016, every event at the Baku City Circuit has seen a safety car or virtual safety car deployment, with the probability of seeing Bernd Maylander leading the field at 60 per cent.
The attrition rate is high too - a minimum of four cars retire from the race each year.
Azerbaijan to provide on-track fireworks
Amongst street circuits that have hosted a minimum of two races since 2017, Azerbaijan has seen the most average overtakes [40.75].
Ricciardo seeks to end barren run
Daniel Ricciardo won the 2017 race after starting from P10, the furthest back win at this event. He has only scored two points at Baku since then.
Hamilton streak to finish?
Lewis Hamilton has qualified on the front row in each of the last four Azerbaijan Grands Prix.
Rosberg's unlikely record
Nico Rosberg appeared in just one Azerbaijan race yet has led the most laps around this track with 51.
Alonso to set new F1 record
When Fernando Alonso takes to the grid on Sunday, it will be 21 years, 3 months and 8 days since his debut for Minardi in 2001, a new record for the longest interval between a driver’s first and last F1 races.
That record will extend, of course, across the season.
