TOP – Verstappen wins Azerbaijani Grand Prix, another setback for Leclerc (Formula 1)

Max Ferstappen won the Azerbaijani Grand Prix in the 8th round of the Formula 1 World Cup on Sunday. This is a double for Red Bull, as Sergio Perez, who won last week in Monaco, took second place. Mercedes driver George Russell completes the podium.

Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes), who started in 7th place, ran a recovery race and finished fourth in lap 44, beating Pierre Gasley (Alfa Tauri), leaving two Mercedes behind Red Bull. In the end, Hamilton complained of a lot of back pain due to “porpoising,” a fall this year due to drivers driving close to the ground.

In the Baku city district, Charles Leclerc was forced to leave the race due to an engine failure while leading in the 20th lap, and Ferrari was left unmanned in the race as Carlos Sains was already in the ninth lap. This was Monegasque’s second retirement in three races, starting from a pole position.

Thus, Verstappen increases its lead in the overall standings, and Perez overtook Leclerc in second place.
