BAKU – Sergio Perez wins a crazy Azerbaijan Grand Prix, sixth round of the season Formula 1. The Mexican closes in front of Sebastian Vettel’s Aston Martin and Pierre Gasly. A truly absurd race that of the Baku city circuit, with Max Verstappen out after the failure of the rear left tire, the red flag and the restart from the grid, with subsequent blunder by Lewis Hamilton, who goes straight and ends up at the bottom. Fourth at the foot of the podium Charles Leclerc, while the other Ferrari of Carlos Sainz closes in eighth place.
Leclerc is immediately overtaken by Hamilton on the straight. For the Ferrari driver, the race is immediately uphill, and he soon slips into fourth position. The Monegasque, among other things, is the first to stop in the pits after 10 laps to mount hard tires. Verstappen is in the lead after Hamilton’s stop, hampered by Gasly’s pit lane passage. At that point the Dutchman did everything very well, continuing to maintain the first position until the moment when, when the laps completed are 47 out of 51, the left rear tire gives way and the car crashes into the wall. At that point, the red flag forces the pilots to return. It starts from the grid, with Lewis Hamilton making a glaring mistake and going straight, finishing last and zero points. Thus ends, with the victory of Sergio Perez and Max Verstappena still at the top of the drivers’ standings, a race we will remember for a long time.
