Could Sergio Perez do a double-double in Baku? Do we know which car is quicker - Ferrari or Red Bull Racing? If Ferrari have the car to challenge for the world title, do they have the team in place? Is this the most-likely race to have the unlikely podium trio? Will the 'porpoising' return for Mercedes & other teams on the long-straight of Baku?
And of course, what makes Baku so special? Soumil and Kunal shares some of their favourite Baku moments; the race hasn't been around for that long, but it has already offered us plenty of memorable moments on-track.
