Session times for the 2022 F1 Azerbaijan GP

Find out when the 2022 Azerbaijan GP takes place, including the F1 session times for practice, qualifying and the race


The 2022 Formula 1 season continues with the Azerbaijan Grand Prix, so make sure you know when the action is happening at the Baku City Circuit.

After an eventful Monaco GP, which was won by Sergio Perez after a strategic Ferrari blunder, the Scuderia will be aiming to convert their qualifying advantage over Red Bull into a race win. 

Drivers’ Championship leader Max Verstappen has unhappy memories of Baku as a tyre blowout in 2021 ended his race, while he was leading. Now he is fighting for the title with Charles Leclerc as the pair are expected to go at it again at the Azerbaijan GP.

The 2022 Azerbaijan GP will take place at the Baku City Circuit, with qualifying scheduled for 15:00 BST on Saturday, and the race at 12:00 BST on Sunday.

Who won the 2021 Azerbaijan GP?

The 2021 Azerbaijan GP was an extremely eventful race with Verstappen and championship rival Lewis Hamilton both having trouble in Baku. 

First Verstappen suffered a high-speed blowout which put him out of the race, and then at the restart, Hamilton accidentally pressed the ‘magic’ button on his steering wheel which sends the brake bias more to the front of the car. 

That resulted in him overshooting Turn 1 and going into the run off area, meaning Sergio Perez took the lead and eventually won the race. Sebastian Vettel was second in the Aston Martin and AlphaTauri’s Pierre Gasly claimed third.
