The Baku grand prix next sunday will hopefully be great as its a street circuit but hope they have plenty of over taking places unlike the awful valencia street circuit which was awful to watch.

The city provides a backdrop, but the track itself isn't that good with one massive long straight and a bunch of tight twisty stuff. One race for the Mercs and another for everyone else.

The track maybe a bit boring without much over tacking places but think we are going to get alot of cars going down those escape roads during the race which hopefully will stop the mercs just driving away for a win.The gp2 race had about 4 safety cars.

Think it going to actually be a good race,they say a 1 stopper but think from watching so far guys are going to flat spot a fair few tyre's which maybe makes it more of a lottery.

At least the mistake from Lewis might make it a bit more interesting. But if Rosberg gets away at the start it's game over.

There are going to be safety cars from what we have seen so far and think it could be a lot more action with brakes and tire temps.Think it could be as exciting a GP we can see without rain.Hamilton just looked poor when the temps went down a few degree's after dominating free practice.

Oh, dear. Lewis bogs up quali. Oh, well, let's see how Rosberg gets on with the Ferraris at the start.

There's an altogether more interesting race taking place this weekend in France. As I type there's about 19hours and 40 minutes remaining. Check it out.
