Pammachio Corsino | 25 Giugno, 2017, 20:43

Valtteri Bottas was involved in a second-corner collision with Kimi Raikkonen on lap one, but fought back from dead last to pip Stroll to second on the line and limit the damage for Mercedes - Stroll having the consolation of a becoming the youngest rookie to secure a podium finish.

Lewis Hamilton takes pole position in the 2017 Azerbaijan Grand Prix, with team-mate Bottas in second and Vellet in fourth place on the grid.

Britain's Lewis Hamilton is on the pole in Azerbaijan.

Sun, July 24, 2016 As the Formula 1 Grand Prix revs up for action, Haynes has delved into its extensive archive of imagery which has appeared in its numerous F1 Owner's Workshop Manuals to give us 16 fascinating F1 Facts.

The qualifying session of the 2017 Formula 1 Azerbaijan Grand Prix in Baku has ended, Trend news agency reports. "It was all or nothing", Hamilton said.

"That was one of the most exciting laps I've had all year and a lot of pressure. I'm so pumped, that's how qualifying should be".

It was Hammy's 66th pole placing, moving one clear of Ayrton Senna into second place on F1's pole table and just two behind Michael Schumacher's all-time record. "Still not flawless, and I think that if you can switch them on, you can go a lot faster".

Championship leader Sebastian Vettel, a four-time world champion from Germany driving for Scuderia Ferrari, finished fourth behind teammate Kimi Raikkonen.

As of now five drivers have dropped out of the race. "On the cool-down lap, I was just giggling like a schoolboy".

Hamilton's pole-grabbing lap came right at the end of Q3, following a brief red flag period caused by Daniel Ricciardo's crash at Turn 6.

Max Verstappen dominated Friday practice but Red Bull failed to have the anticipated impact as he qualified fifth.

Meanwhile, Ferrari did not have the best qualifying sessions despite showing positive signs during practice.

"Disappointing, but second place is not bad", he added".

"The team really did a fantastic job to set the vehicle up in the right way and Lewis with his lap here - I have never seen anything like it", said the 68-year-old Austrian.

The slowness of the safety vehicle was annoying Hamilton, who complained that he couldn't get enough temperature into his tires. We were struggling yesterday but we made a lot of changes overnight. "But the guys did excellent work".

The safety vehicle, which lasted for several laps and allowed all the leading runners to swap their supersofts for softs, was back in on lap 16 - with Hamilton speeding up early on the main straight and immediately establishing a lead over Vettel. Eventually, he will start second to the last, after Jolyon Palmer, Renault driver, had some engine troubles and he did not even participate in the qualifiers.

Up ahead, Hamilton asked over the radio where Bottas was, perhaps concerned his teammate would not be able to protect him from Vettel later in the race. Williams driver Felipe Massa misjudged the hard approach into Turn 8 and Carlos Sainz Jr. overshot the entry into Turn 2, which happened to several drivers.

Vettel finished fourth, with Hamilton fifth after an extra pitstop to fix a loose headrest.

The safety vehicle was deployed on Lap 12 to allow Daniil Kvyat's stricken Toro Rosso to be recovered after an engine issue, sparking the lead drivers to dive into the pits. Mercedes boss Toto Wolff says the data from Friday's longer runs suggest the three teams will be closely matched when the lights go out.
