F1 2017 - Azerbaijan GP

The Azerbaijan GP of the F1 2017 season promises to be even more exciting than last year but all that excitement has been replaced with a certain vengeful intentional crash that is worth controversial than enjoyable.

How did that happen? After Sebastian Vettel run lightly into the back of his Briton rival, Lewis Hamilton, leading up to the re-start on lap 18, he was given a 10-second stop-go penalty for dangerous driving after what seems to be a retaliatory contact with Hamilton's vehicle. Hamilton called Vettel's intentional collision disgraceful by side-swiping him behind the safety car, saying it's unfitting for a four-time world champion. Vettel, who finished a place ahead of Hamilton in fourth, fires back saying that Hamilton accused of brake-testing him.

Behind the Vettel-Hamilton quagmire, Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo is named the winner of this race while Valtteri Bottas' in 2nd place and Stroll's in 3rd place, his first podium finish.

After that whole incident in Baku, Hamilton dropped to 14 points behind Vettel in the overall rankings of this season.

The next race will be on Austria on the 9th of July.
