Azerbaijan gets a grand prix!

Today Azerbaijan's youth and sport minister was quoted as saying that a deal had been struck with Bernie Ecclestone for a Formula One race around the streets of Baku.  The contract is to allegedly start in 2016.

Azerbaijan has already hosted a round of the FIA GT championship but would need a whole new Street circuit in order to pass the strict FIA guidelines and gain the correct licence to hold an F1 race.
