After Formula 1 passed through the streets of Monaco, the biggest series in motorsport continues on an urban route, but this time in Baku, with the Azerbaijan GP, sixth round of the 2021 season. But unlike Monte Carlo, the drivers' and constructors' championships have new leaders, Max Verstappen and Red Bull, respectively. The race in Baku is relatively 'young' on F1 calendar, entering the category only in 2016 and could not be held last year due to the pandemic. Even so, no one will have an easy life and Brazilian Motorsport.com gives tips for your bets:

Mercedes is the team that won most in Baku, winning three of the four possible victories. The German automaker's team arrives in Azerbaijan after a bad weekend in Monaco, but the characteristics of the track layout tend to favor them more than in Monte Carlo. With that, you can believe that Valtteri Bottas is once again the best in the first free practice, as he already did in 2021 in three of the five stages. Fastest on TL1: Valtteri Bottas

Charles Leclerc had great chances to do well at home, at the Monaco GP. However, the Monegasque continued with his 'curse' of never even having completed a race on the track he has known since as a kid. In Baku he will arrive with a more confident and better performing Ferrari than in 2020 and it's an easy bet that he can deliver a good result. Top-6: Charles Leclerc

Monaco GP was the first of the year without the presence of the safety car. The race broke an 'unbeaten' streak in 2021, as well as a favorable retrospective of that intervention in 2020, when we had 11 safety car races out of 17 on the calendar. Baku has high speed points, including the longest straight in the championship, mixed with tighter areas, perfect ingredients for accidents and safety car. Safety car: Yes
