Azerbaijan Grand Prix: Red Bull Snags Max Points in Verstappen Win

Max Verstappen sped away with yet another win on Sunday.

The Azerbaijan Grand Prix saw Red Bull go 1–2 once again for the third time this season after both Ferrari drivers were forced to retire early in the race. But for the first time since Australia, Mercedes finished back-to-back: George Russell rounded out the podium and Lewis Hamilton overcame back pain to take fourth while he visibly struggled to get out of his car.

Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff Hamilton after the race, “Lewis, we all know that this is a bit of a s—box told at the moment. And sorry for the back also, we will sort ourselves out.” Russell raised safety concerns about the bouncing again this weekend, calling the current regulations “a recipe for disaster.” Hamilton revealed to Sky Sports after the race that he couldn’t “express the pain that you experience, particularly on the straight here” and he was “praying” for the Grand Prix to end.
