Ricciardo wins Azerbaijan Grand Prix as leaders clash

Ricciardo wins Azerbaijan Grand Prix as leaders clash

Sebastian Vettel was penalised for risky driving after deliberately crashing into title rival Lewis Hamilton in a wild and chaotic Azerbaijan Grand Prix won by Red Bull s Daniel Ricciardo on Sunday.

Stroll thereby claimed his first podium finish after unlikely setbacks had hit fourth-placed world championship leader Sebastian Vettel of Ferrari and three-time champion Lewis Hamilton of Mercedes.

Ferrari star Vettel was handed a 10-second stop-go penalty for "dangerous driving" after he deliberately drove into Hamilton s Mercedes while both were following the safety auto.

That was enough to see Vettel finish one place ahead of Hamilton in fifth, after the Mercedes racer lost his chances of victory when he was forced to pit for a replacement headrest.

In a stop-start race, the safety auto came out three times in quick succession before a red flag stopped the grand prix near the midway point because debris littered the track.

Sebastian Vettel is just three penalty points away from a one-race ban after his controversial collision with Lewis Hamilton at the Azerbaijan Grand Prix.

As a outcome of this action, Sebastian Vettel was fined with 10 second "stop and go penalty" while on the other hand, Lewis Hamilton didn't suffer any penalty.




"I didn't brake check him at all", protested Hamilton to Channel 4 after a chaotic grand prix that was eventually won by Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo, ahead of Valtteri Bottas and Lance Stroll.

"It was just a insane race, we knew the podium was a chance after the restart and then we heard about the problems with Lewis and Seb", Ricciardo said. "But obviously that's what it turned out to be, that's what it is, and I wasn't happy with that". "But we were exiting the corner, he was accelerating then he braked so much that I was braking as soon as I saw, but I couldn't stop in time and ran in the back of him".

"I got damage, he risked damage". In the end we are racing with men. "I might turn into something else".

After expressing a few gestures Vettel inexplicably swung straight into the side of Hamilton which resulted in the the race being delayed again for the track to be cleared of debris. "It was a insane race but we stayed out of trouble".

After the race Vettel told reporters: "Nothing happened, did it?" Asked if the incident tainted Vettel's reputation, the Austrian said: "Sure. So I think in the end I don't agree with the penalty that I got, if you penalize me then you should penalize both of us". "I want to win the championship the right way". "I think he disgraced himself today", Hamilton said.

Lauda believes Vettel was treated leniently by the stewards as his move was one occurring at a time when the pace of the race was being managed by the Safety Car. I did not give him the finger. "Maybe we've seen the limit of that respect today". If you overtake somebody and drive into him as a mistake then fine.
