It was an incident-packed Azerbaijan Grand Prix at Baku City Circuit with three safety-car periods and a red-flag race stoppage. At the end, Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo won a roller-coaster Grand Prix in Azerbaijan, as Canadian rookie Lance Stroll took his maiden podium for Williams. Mercedes Valtteri Bottas took second place while both the title contenders Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel finished off the podium.

The Williams driver Lance Stroll became the youngest ever podium finisher in a rookie season and the first Canadian to stand on the podium since Jacques Villeneuve in 2001.

Vettel finished fourth after serving 10-second stop and go penalty following the incident where he swerved into Hamilton’s car during a safety car period. Hamilton was forced to pit from the lead due to a loose head restraint and finished fifth.

Sebastian Vettel Wins 2017 Australian Formula One Grand Prix for Ferrari

0

Sebastian Vettel took his and Ferrari’s first win, since Singapore Grand Prix of 2015, after beating MercedesLewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas in 2017 Australian Grand Prix. A strategic slip by the champions allowed Vettel to inherit the lead midway through the race at Albert Park.

Vettel’s first win since the Singapore GP in September 2015 is final proof that Mercedes’ domination is over after the introduction of faster cars.  Ferrari’s win at Melbourne dashes Mercedes’ hopes of extending their dominance into a fourth successive season of Formula One.

The German cruised to his 43rd race victory with a 9.9 second gap to Mercedes’ runner-up Lewis Hamilton, with the Briton’s new team mate, Valtteri Bottas, finishing third on a glorious afternoon at Albert Park.

Hamilton started in pole but Vettel had an advantage on pace and tyre wear. Pole sitter Hamilton was in control of proceedings ahead of Vettel until his first pit stop on lap 17. After taking on soft tyres, the three-time champion emerged behind the slower Red Bull of Max Verstappen, as Vettel took the lead.

The German pressured Mercedes into an early pit stop and benefited when Hamilton was held up by Max Verstappen. Hamilton could find no way past the Dutchman and when Vettel made his sole pit stop he emerge ahead of both, in the lead. The German then build a solid gap and controlled the pace until the end, finishing 9.9s ahead of Hamilton.

F1 – 2016 Japanese Grand Prix : Nico Rosberg tightens grip on title race with controlled victory at Suzuka

0

Nico Rosberg took a controlled  victory at Japanese Grand Prix to extend his lead over team-mate Lewis Hamilton to 33 points in the overall standings. Defending champion Hamilton’s race was compromised by a poor start while Rosberg, who started on pole, was never seriously threatened. Roseberg crossed the line 4.9 seconds clear of Red Bull‘s Max Verstappen, who fended off a late-charging Lewis Hamilton after the Briton recovered from a woeful start to finish third.

Rosberg now leads the world championship by 33 points with only 100 still available in the remaining four races.

Suzuka result has assured Mercedes of the constructors’ title for the third year in succession.
