The 2019 Azerbaijan Grand Prix (officially the Formula 1 Socar Azerbaijan Grand Prix 2019)[1] was the fourth race of the 2019 Formula One season, the third Azerbaijan Grand Prix, and the fourth time a race was held at the Baku City Circuit following the 2016 European Grand Prix. It was held between 26 April and 28 April 2019. The race is the earliest in the season that the Azerbaijan Grand Prix has been hosted.

In qualifying, following two accidents involving Robert Kubica and Charles Leclerc at Turn 8, Valtteri Bottas took his second consecutive pole position. Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel qualified second and third, respectively.

In the race, Bottas kept his position on the first lap after Hamilton battled at the first few corners. Very little action occurred during the race, with notable moments being when Daniel Ricciardo went too deep into Turn 3 and reversed into Daniil Kvyat on lap 32, and Pierre Gasly's engine problem on lap 39 resulted in a virtual safety car that ended on lap 41. With Hamilton making a mistake at Turn 16 on the penultimate lap, Bottas went on to score his fifth victory and retake the lead in the Drivers' Championship. Hamilton and Vettel finished second and third, respectively.
