The twisting Baku city track was a headache for many drivers during the first session of practice, as there were plenty of spins and brushes against the walls to behold. It was Sergio Pérez who made full contact first though, bringing out the red flags when he hit the barriers at turn eight. The Force India was recovered, although plenty of carbon fibre was left out on track.

Meanwhile, Red Bull were testing new upgrades to their car and they appeared to have found some pace. Max Verstappen posted the fastest lap of the morning session with teammate Daniel Ricciardo close behind him.
