Italy’s Corriere dello sport web page has posted an article about Azerbaijan’s hosting Formula 1 race.

The article quotes Formula 1 Chief Executive Bernie Ecclestone as saying that a race in Azerbaijan could be on the Formula 1 calendar as early as 2015. “Discussions over a street circuit race in the capital of Baku would take place on Thursday. We're having a look to see if we can get it done for next year,’ Ecclestone said.

The deal to host the race in Baku had been facilitated by Ecclestone's friend, Flavio Briatore, the former team principal at Renault.
