Azerbaijan Grand Prix halted in Baku

Ricciardo wins chaotic Azerbaijan GP; Vettel leads overall - FOX Carolina 21 Baku is bonkers: What we learned from the Azerbaijan Grand Prix

"A big thank you to the team who stayed late last night to get the vehicle to where it is today - they did a fantastic job", Hamilton told reporters after the Azerbaijan Grand Prix Qualifying session.

A red flag with little more than three minutes of Q3 remaining interrupted the session with Bottas topping the timesheets ahead of his colleague.

This left Ricciardo, who qualified 10th and looked well and truly out of contention after stopping early to have debris cleared out of a brake duct, in position to take his fifth grand prix victory.

"(I didn't think I'd win) for all my money, but this was the race we expected a year ago, all the safety cars and chaos.

"It was just a insane race - Never in doubt, never in doubt", Ricciardo joked after the race. "It's just that, I've been in this sport now for seven or eight years", Wolff said.

Grosjean, who has criticized his Haas engineers throughout the season, again lost his temper over the radio.

"I wasn't quite comfortable with the tire temperature", said Bottas, who took pole at the Bahrain GP. I can't describe how I feel, it is beyond fantastic.

The racing resumed, for a fifth time, behind a safety vehicle and when it came in after one lap Hamilton pulled away and Ricciardo dived past Stroll to snatch third.

Vettel earned himself a 10-second stop-go penalty after driving up alongside Hamilton and swiping the No.44 vehicle in protest at what he had deemed to be a "brake-check" from his title rival.

Bottas led qualifying and then set an even quicker time on his final lap - only for Hamilton to beat him by almost half a second.

At the same time Vettel is handed a five-second stop-go penalty for risky driving. Vettel then appeared to turn deliberately into the body of Hamilton's Mercedes.

And, before celebrating with a customary "shoey", Ricciardo reflected on an incident-packed race. He's obviously sleeping and drove in the back of me, that for me wasn't an issue. Replay showed Vettel hitting the rear of Hamilton just before restart, before the Ferrari pulled alongside the Mercedes and swerved into the Brit.


"But I'm really proud", added the 27-year-old Finnish driver. "It was a shame Daniel was too far away at the end but in the circumstances it was a good result". Hamilton followed seconds later, shaving more than a half second from his time and taking pole.

Teammate Bottas isn't willing to play second-fiddle to his teammate, a former three-time World Champion.

But Bottas had to pit on the second lap for a new front wing, dropping to last.

Hamilton began the race on pole and avoided the melee in lap one to establish himself as leader, but his progress was stymied when he ceded his lead after pitting due to a loose head rest.

It was a wild race in Baku as Daniel Ricciardo of Red Bull grabbed the top spot following several crashes and multiple safety cars.

This prompted a flurry of activity as drivers switched tires, changing the race order somewhat.

"We just stayed out of trouble".

"We've clearly still got lots of work to do ahead of qualifying".

Vettel then drives up the inside of Hamilton and touches him wheel-to-wheel.

Under the safety vehicle Hamilton leads Vettel, Perez, Raikkonen, Massa, Ocon, Stroll, Hulkenberg, Magnussen and Ricciardo in tenth place. There were close calls for Bottas and Vettel while Force India's Sergio Perez shaved the barriers on the demanding street circuit.

"That was not the right way to do it, exiting the corner, accelerating and then braking". The race is a 190-mile contest that will run 51 laps around the track.
