25.06.2017

Our journey continues to the relatively new territory of Azerbaijan – and here’s how the tale unfolded…

  • SUNDAY: On pole position and feeling good during Sunday's pre-race driver parade. Little did Lewis know of the twists of fate and turns of fortune that were to shape his afternoon in Baku…

  • SUNDAY: Only one thing takes you from P20 and a lap down on Lap 2 - to P2 at the flag. Well, two things: a Safety Car to get the lap back, then a healthy dose of never-say-die Finnish sisu!

  • SUNDAY: After starting on pole, P5 is only scant consolation for Lewis after losing the race win to a loose headrest. But the promise of the weekend was there - strong pace throughout, a dominant qualifying performance and great race pace. Bring on Spielberg…!

  • SUNDAY: A clean start into Turn 1 for Lewis then Valtteri - but the carnage began at Turn 2 with damage for Valtteri, a puncture and broken front wing… then a rousing climb through the field.
