Azerbaijan Grand Prix in numbers

Azerbaijan bracing for another F1 thriller

And the peak wind speed could rise to 56 km/h on race day, with Ricciardo - who will start fourth on the grid - admitting the tricky conditions could add to what looks set to be an action-packed Grand Prix.

Mr. Ricciardo, victor in China is on a high and Baku rewards the overtaking moves he is known for.

Hamilton called Vettel a "disgrace" after the race and ultimately beat his Ferrari rival to the 2017 world title.

Mercedes, meanwhile, is desperately seeking its first win of the season and the Silver Arrows have a good record in qualifying for this race.

"Now we have Red Bull close to their best and Ferrari at their best, if we are able to pull through and deliver as we have in previous years it would be the biggest achievement this team would have accomplished". His incredibly consistent finishes and belief that he has an equal footing to Vettel are part of the Finn's strengths. But the young driver may have just learned his lesson and this next race will be a test to see if he has. "I don't know. We'll find out tomorrow".

In that run, Ferrari made errors and Red Bull were not a serious threat.

Lewis Hamilton: The dominant force in Formula 1 in recent memory and the reigning world champion hasn't been able to come to grips with his vehicle on the track.

MercedesAMG, without a win in 3 races for the 1st time since the V6 turbo hybrid era started in Y 2014, will need to get their tires working properly and can take nothing for granted.

Joshua Frazier drafted by Pittsburgh Steelers in seventh round
Pittsburgh selected former Oklahoma State wide receiver James Washington with the 60th overall pick in the second round. Roethlisberger, 36, has said he will return for the 2018 season, but his future beyond that point remains in the air.

Vettel won the first two races of the season and leads Hamilton, the reigning champion who has not had a victory since a year ago, by nine points heading into the fourth round of 21 grands prix.

"It's only been three races". With a chassis that was eerily similar to that of Ferrari, one would expect more from the team and its lead driver.

"It's not an easy auto to drive at the moment, we have some work to do with the balance".

This handed Force India's Sergio Perez the eighth podium of his Formula 1 career by finishing in third place. The auto has been great but in the last race it wasn't performing the way it normally does. This season has been different after it was discovered that the VJM11 had some fundamental design issues that have dropped the team to the back of the midfield.

So, can Red Bull mount a challenge for victory in Baku?

Whether that will be a turning point in this season remains to be seen. He has consistently finished below Hulkenberg, and "is one of only two drivers yet to outqualify his teammate" according to Sky Sports. "It was quite hard to get a lap together, even my best lap today was a bit a messy".

Want your voice heard?

After Lewis Hamilton was questioned about his comments on the collision that put Max Verstappen out of the Bahrain Grand Prix, race-winner Sebastian Vettel stepped in to defend him.
