BERNIE EC­CLE­STONE/FIA

Motor Sport News - - Gp Extra -

Baku had some things to rec­om­mend it, such as F1’s long­est straight, cre­at­ing slip­stream­ing and top speeds rarely seen these days. But hav­ing a new F1 event on the same week­end as the big­gest race in the world (that’s the Le Mans 24 Hours, Bernie) was not a good idea. Even more so given that the start in Azer­bai­jan took place just as one of the most in­cred­i­ble cli­maxes to a 24-hour race in his­tory un­folded in France.
