Start Time for the 2016 Formula 1 Grand Prix of Europe in Baku confirmed

Azerbaijan’s inaugural Formula One race will get under way at 18.00 local time on June 19, 2016.

We are pleased to announce that the start time of 2016 FORMULA 1 GRAND PRIX OF EUROPE, the 8th round of the 2016 FIA Formula One World Championship, will commence at 18.00 local time. In doing so, the race in Baku will not clash with Le Mans 24 Hours, which concludes at 17.00 earlier that day.

With sunset in Azerbaijan taking place at approximately 21.14 local time in June,  the three-hour window between the start of the race and sunset will allow F1 drivers enough time to race through the streets of Baku during daylight.

The calendar for the 2016 FIA Formula One World Championship is the busiest in the sport’s long history, with a record 21 races taking place between March and November.
