F1 2018: Azerbaijan GP

The F1 2018 season continues at Baku for the Azerbaijan Grand Prix and it has turned into one of the craziest races of this season, which is way beyond the drivers' predicament, not to mention the drama behind the scenes.

Valtteri Bottas leads the race but with just two laps to go, one of his wheels got punctured when it went across the debris caused by Kimi Rakkonen and Esteban Ocon and he was therefore out, costing his victory hopes. Then, Red Bull Racing's biggest fear came true when Daniel Ricciardo crashed behind Max Verstappen, knocking themselves out of the race. Sergey Sirotkin and Fernando Alonso got involved in the fender bender in the opening laps, leaving the Russian out cold and the Spaniard drove his way back to the pits even with one of the wheels went missing. What's even worse is when Romain Grosjean crashed through the wall following the safety car deployment that made the HAAS driver very angry.

After a chaotic race in Baku, Lewis Hamilton nailed his first win of the season while Raikkonen in second place and miraculously, Force India's Sergio Perez tasted his first podium finish since 2015 after placing 3rd.

Next race is at Spain on the 13th of May.
