Hamilton Pips Bottas To Take 66th Pole In Azerbaijan

Hamilton Pips Bottas To Take 66th Pole In Azerbaijan

Stroll's performance was mightily impressive considering his inexperience and the Canadian struggled to explain his third-place finish. "I was controlling the pace so like all the other restarts I slowed down at the same spot but he was obviously sleeping so drove into the back of me", Hamilton said. We all feel that pain, but it's on me to gather my thoughts and try and lead the team through this adversity. I enjoyed the race but I don't think as I said, it's the right thing that I got a penalty and he didn't. It's an extraordinary result.

In the end, Ricciardo may have been the one to win a chaotic race but Stroll, at 18, undoubtedly won the event.

"Nothing happened, did it?", said Vettel to Sky Sports F1, when quizzed about the incident.

Hamilton though was unimpressed with that comment, and said: "If he wants to prove that he's a man, I think we should do it out of the vehicle face to face". Lance Stroll (Canada) Williams-Mercedes 00:04.009 4. Media reports estimate the elder stroll spent at least $40 million (U.S.) to get his son into the cockpit of an F1 auto. I just wanted to tell him, because I can't literally talk to him, that what he did was not right. The German pitted to serve his penalty on lap 34, he emerged just in front of Hamilton in P7.

In a March profile of Stroll, the Star's Paul Hunter noted that Lawrence Stroll bought his son a go-kart when he was only 5. In a race with eight retirements three safety vehicle periods and a red flag period, the Red Bull Racing driver was followed by Valterri Bottas in second place and 18-year-old Lance Stroll in third. He was one of only six young prospects there.

Hamilton, who led for much of a race that was red-flagged on lap 21 as the street circuit was cleared of debris, suffered his misfortune on the 32nd of 51 laps.

At the end of final whistle, the score was 4-0. "So we were forewarned", he said. Ronaldo now has 75 goals in 142 appearances for his country.

Vettel leads the overall standings on 153 points ahead of Briton Hamilton on 139 and Finland's Bottas with 111.

Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo won in Baku after a chaotic race which saw Ferrari's Vettel given a 10-second stop-go penalty when he steered into the back of race leader Hamilton's Mercedes under safety vehicle conditions after a red-flag stoppage on lap 22. After the initial collision, the German gesticulated angrily with both hands as he then pulled alongside his rival and hit the side of Hamilton's vehicle.

"I think driving dangerously which in any way could put another driver at risk, I mean luckily we were going slow, if we were going faster, it could've been a lot worse".

Vettel finished fourth, while Hamilton was fifth.

But it was not a view shared in the paddock with Hamilton, now even further adrift of Vettel in the title race, the first to lay down the law.

Vettel, who as a effect of the chaotic second half of the race actually increased his lead in the title standings to 14 points, having at one stage looked as if it would be cut to five points, looked to try and build bridges with Hamilton as he followed up his defence of his driving with a conciliatory tone.
