In Pictures: Azerbaijan 2017

Fantastic, mad, and chaotic race at Baku for the 2017 Azerbaijan Grand Prix.

Lewis Hamilton took pole with an amazing lap that was 1/5 a second faster than teammate and more than 1 second faster than Kimi Raikkonen, third on the grid. But nothing had prepared us for a dramatic race that saw multiple safety cars and an extended red flag period in the middle of the race to sweep up debris from earlier incidents.

Race winner Daniel Ricciardo started 10th on the grid but fell to 19th at some point during the race, as did Valtteri Bottas, whom after an early crash with Kimi Raikkonen fell to last place a lap down only to recover and finish 2nd, just 0.105s ahead of Lance Stroll, making history as the youngest rookie to ever reach podium in F1.
