Baku has been signed. It will start in 2015 and will replace Korea."They (Korea) did a good job with the track but what they forgot to do was build all the things they wanted to build."Sylt claims that the Azerbaijan deal was brokered by Flavio Briatore, the ousted former Renault boss and close friend of Ecclestone."Briatore put the idea in the mind of the president of the country and that got things going," a source is quoted as saying.
