Lewis Hamilton seeks first win in 17 months after return to form, Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc out to impress amid Mercedes links and a new sprint race format… SEVEN things to look out for as F1 returns in Baku for the Azerbaijan GP this weekend

The Formula One circus is back in town this weekend after a four-week absence. That result was pretty much the best he could have hoped for given how much quicker Verstappen’s Red Bull is. Despite vociferous criticisms from the likes of Verstappen, a new format for sprint races in coming in starting this weekend in Baku. The ‘sprint’, a more quick-fire race on Saturday, is now independent from Sunday’s race, with its own qualifying session, known as a ‘sprint shootout’. It’s been a busy week for Fernando Alonso – and not just on track!. Alonso has finished third in all three races so far this term, and is only behind Red Bull pair  Verstappen and Perez in the standings, ahead of the likes of Hamilton, Russell and Leclerc.
