Mercedes'Lewis Hamilton has claimed a stunning pole position for the Azerbaijan Grand Prix, the 66th of his career, directly ahead of team-mate Valtteri Bottas with world championship leader Sebastian Vettel fourth. "Absolutely not", he said. "I managed to put it all together when it mattered and have the team to thank".
"So yeah, just went over the kerb, bottomed out, the auto jumped and hit him and I got a puncture. Giggling like a little schoolboy". The Baku circuit might not be the best track to have a race on, but it sure looks like a blast to drive. Daniil Kvyat'sToro Rosso also ground to a halt, bringing out the virtual―and eventually the actual―safety auto and allowing Bottas to make up some ground.
At the end of lap 19 the safety vehicle is in and the race resumes.
Vettel, who claimed Hamilton had "brake-tested" him, was handed a 10-second stop and go penalty but Hamilton claimed the punishment allowed his rival to get away with risky driving that put them both at risk.
The 3.7-mile track was littered with debris. The Ferrari driver had restart his race after the red flag period but had to retire eventually at Lap 48 due to terminal water pressure problems.
With the cars parked in the pit lane, mechanics made minor repairs. Hamilton made his way into DRS range of Vettel in the battle for fourth but couldn't make a final pass, and team-mate Bottas broke the hearts of Williams fans, taking Stroll for second place on the line.

Daniel Ricciardo never thought he would win the Azerbaijan Grand Prix after finding himself in 17th position as a series of chaotic incidents handed him victory on Sunday.
As we mentioned earlier Valtteri Bottas, will start from the second place, and Kimi Raikkonen will be right behind him. "It was just a insane race".
At lap 30 Hamilton leads Vettel by 1.6 seconds, followed by Ricciardo (5.8s), Stroll (7.7s), Magnussen (18.8s), Alonso (19.9s), Ocon (21.6s), Bottas (23.4s), Sainz (24.0s) and Grosjean (31.0s).
"I'm just lost for words", said Stroll, who earned his first podium finish.
'Did I think then I'd win, absolutely not! "He's done something similar a couple of years ago in China with the restart, it's just not the way to do it I think".
"We just stayed out of trouble".
"We're here to race as I said, we're grown ups and people expect us to race and use our elbows, that's what people want, here and there you might get a bit close, but people want real overtaking not just us driving past, so after that I had a handful obviously". Englishman Jolyon Palmer however, retired on lap seven following an engine issue.
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. Teammate Bottas isn't willing to play second-fiddle to his teammate, a former three-time World Champion.
At that point, the rates at which the federal government assists states changes and becomes tethered to the consumer price index. Cruz, in a separate statement , said, "As now drafted, this bill draft does not do almost enough to lower premiums".
It now covers about 70 million people, including children and able-bodied adults mostly served by private managed care plans. But at least one Republican governor of an expansion state signaled that he felt the bill was a step in the right direction.
Then I added in some weather forecasts that suggested there might be favourable conditions for the Lions forwards at Eden Park . The Lions had expected the All Blacks to attack with a flurry of offloads, cutting lines and adding width and flair.
It's emblematic of the one campaign skill that Republicans have consistently mastered - demonizing their political opponents. Seth Moulton , D-Mass., who also attended the meeting, said, "in every corner of our caucus, we're concerned".

Johnson said in an interview with WLUK-TV, "I'm saying I haven't gotten the information yet to convince myself that I'm a 'yes'". We don't have too much of a choice because the alternative is the dead carcass of Obamacare .I don't think they're that far off.
Swiss-born Nico Hischier makes history, goes No. 1 to Devils
Patrick returned on January 13, and played most nights until he suffered a knee injury on March 17 that cost him the playoffs. So still no Manitoban has ever been picked first overall. "I'll just move on from there and get ready for next season".
Sam Warburton returns to captain Lions against Highlanders
Jared Payne , who picked up a calf injury in their opener, starts at fullback with Tommy Seymour and Jack Nowell on the wings. But on Saturday Canterbury hardly threw one cut-out pass, and in the end they were forced to play the way the Lions wanted.

For me, it can't be compared to anything else . "I play my best at all events, but the feeling here is impossible to describe". Moya, 40, has seen his new charge reach the Australian Open final, losing to Federer, and now reclaim his French Open title.
