Virtual F2 Grand Prix Baku Azerbaijan
The virtual world brings us yet another race replacement in the form of the Azerbaijan Grand Prix in its capital Baku.
We have had virtual races from Spain (Race Report), Bahrain (Race Report) and Monaco (Race Report) thus far and they have not let us down as a replacement for the excitement we watch normally in the FIA Formula 2 Championship.
With news that the real life season will go ahead from July (Published Race Calendar) this may be one of the last scheduled virtual races we see.
We have now seen the line up for the race and as usual it looks like a great mix of Formula 2 and Formula 3 stars.
2?0? drivers – but who will rule Baku? ?

Last time out we saw Louis DelÃ©traz take the win in the feature race with another impressive drive which has seen him really make an impact on the virtual world and translate his skills into the game.
In a dramatic sprint race Juan Manuel Correa lost out on the win as he was handed a couple of two second penalties in the last sector which saw Arthur Leclerc and Deletraz move up to first and second respectively with a disappointed Correa eventually finishing in third.
This time out for Baku we expect another dramatic race with some new faces joining the mix.
We welcome Nikita Mazepin (Nikita’s exclusive chat with insidef2.com while in lockdown) to the virtual world now that he has been re-united with his setup on his return to the UK from his Russian home.
Guanyu Zhou returns again for another run out as he looks to continue his pace through the racing he has been involved in.
With this mixed F2 and F3 grid we see Bent Viscaal, Oscar Piastri, and Matteo Nannini all joining the grid too.
The exciting grid of promising talent looks set to keep us entertained yet again this weekend.
Who do you think will take the Feature and Sprint Wins this weekend?
