With the closing ceremony for the European Games days away, Azerbaijan is hungry for more sporting events already. And it is eyeing Formula One race.
As it has already been reported, Azerbaijan will host the Formula One race in 2016.
This time, the country's minister of sports is interested in something more than playing the welcoming hosts. Azad Rahimov, says there is interest in having F1 team run under the flag of Azerbaijan.
Azerbaijan has no history of motor sport. But it does have an experience of hosting and participating in large sporting events now that it managed to host the inaugural European Games.
According to Rahimov, the country is interested in having an Azerbaijan-flagged team compete in the race or sponsor an existing team.
