Hamilton snatches Baku pole from Bottas

Adjust Comment Print

The win is Ricciardo's fifth Grand Prix victory and first since he took out the Malaysian Grand Prix in October of 2016 but it was also the one he least expected to occur.

Bottas has only started from the front row once this season - his pole position in Russian Federation - and has qualified in third for every other Grand Prix.

First lady Mehriban Aliyeva presented Constructors Cup to Red Bull Racing team.

"Nothing happened did it?" he told Sky Sports when asked about shunting Hamilton.

"Driving dangerously which in any way can put another driver at risk. we were going slow, if we'd been going fast it could've been a lot worse".

With the cars parked in the pit lane, mechanics made minor repairs.

"But to drive next to him and hit him on goal, I have never seen anything like this". I'm sure he didn't do it on goal but for sure it's not the right move.

Mercedes driver Hamilton, who won in Canada last time out and started on pole, was seemingly on course to pick up a comfortable victory and make further inroads into Vettel's championship advantage after maintaining his lead following a red flag. "He brake-checked me as well". "I don't need to say anymore". For the Russian mechanical issues compromised his race making him stop at Lap 12, bringing out the first SC period.

He said: "It was a insane race".

India , in a big ticket World Cup game, on TV, would have to see off any early movement, in the air and off the pitch. Heather Knight (2-41) finally managed to provide a breakthrough when she dismissed Mandhana in the 27th over.

Canadian driver Lance Stroll finished third and became the youngest rookie to race to a podium finish on the F1 circuit.

Speaking about that moment, Vettel said: "I drove alongside, then we had a little contact but I drove alongside mostly to raise my hand". "The first lap I easily had the time, I just made a mistake in the last corner, so there was a lot of pressure".

Vettel was given a 10-second stop-go penalty, but Hamilton lost valuable time changing a loose headrest at the same time that Vettel served his time penalty. I didn't run into the back of him on goal.

"I think it's just not driver conduct".

Making the most of a series of extraordinary incidents and interventions in an action-packed race, which included three safety auto interventions and a red-flagged stoppage, Ricciardo, who started 10th, roared home 3.904 seconds ahead of the rest to deliver his first win of the season.

Sebastian's vehicle hit Lewis rear, and the German was seeing pulling up on the left and giving the Briton a further wheel bang.

Hamilton was on Vettel's tail on the last lap, but could not overtake.

But it would be heartbreak for Max Verstappen yet again, who was well placed in the early running before yet another auto failure forced him to retire for the fourth time in six races. We knew the podium was a chance after the restart.
