F1: Lewis Hamilton Wins Dramatic Azerbaijan GP; Doom For Red Bull

But, as Verstappen moved to his left to cover off his team-mate, Ricciardo lost control of his vehicle under braking and thudded into the back of his team-mate.

"It was quite an emotional race". The other Mercedes of Valtteri Bottas, however, kept circulating in a bid to stay out as long as possible and at least try to come out ahead of Hamilton. It wasn't until lap 35 that Ricciardo broke Verstappen's resistance and overtook the Dutchman around the outside of Turn 1 in trademark fashion. Both were now on the fastest ultra-soft tyres and looking to challenge for podium positions.

The Australian, however, was called into the pits for a new set of tyres, and his team-mate, who made his stop one lap later, managed to again get the jump on him. The Fin suffered a puncture on his right rear tyre in possibly one of the worst strokes of luck imaginable, thus gift wrapping an unlikely win for the disbelieving Hamilton.

"It is always going to be an issue and this time it is just unlucky".

The resulting collision brought out the safety vehicle and in the scramble among the field to pit for ultra-soft tyres, Bottas seemed to have lucked out as he emerged ahead of Vettel with Hamilton third.

Reliance Jio Q4 net profit to Rs 510 crore; ARPU declines

Sebastian Vettel said he had no choice but to try and pass Valtteri Bottas in what proved to be a misjudged move that cost him a podium finish in Sunday's Azerbaijan Grand Prix.

"Without the safety auto it would have been easier for us - there is probably 47 laps of positive and maybe one turn without a positive note".

Second went to the Finnish racer Ferrari Kimi Raikkonen, the third - Mexican Sergio Perez (Force India).

On lap 49, the race provided its final and probably cruelest twist.

Lewis Hamilton now leads the drivers' title race, but Mercedes still look to be a lesser package than Ferrari.

Raikkonen's team-mate Vettel, who started from pole, took fourth place. Raikkonen is now third in the Driver Standings with 48 points.

Renault's Carlos Sainz and Nico Hulkenberg briefly stormed past both Red Bulls into fourth and fifth, but Sainz lost his spot when he pitted, while Hulkenberg's race ended with a slide into the wall on lap 11.

Sauber's Charles LeClerc secured his best ever F1 finish in sixth place, ahead of McLaren's Fernando Alonso who recovered from the opening lap damage, and Williams' Lance Stroll.

Lewis Hamilton admitted he was lucky to win an eventful Azerbaijan Grand Prix as he ended his six-race victory drought in spectacular
fashion.
