“BCC shares its fans’ disappointment at not being able to experience the pinnacle of motorsport race through the streets of Baku this June.

“To that end, we will continue to work closely with Formula 1, the FIA and the Government of the Azerbaijan Republic to monitor the situation with a view to announcing a new race date later in the 2020 season.”
