Daniel Ricciardo wins action packed Azerbaijan Grand Prix

Daniel Ricciardo has won an incident-packed Azerbaijan Grand Prix to claim his first race win since 2016.

Ricciardo, who crashed in qualifying and started from 10th on the grid took advantage of a number of incidents and drove a clean race for Red Bull to claim his fifth race win.

The Australian took out the race from the Mercedes of Valtteri Bottas and the Williams of Canadian rookie Lance Stroll.


Sebastian Vettel and Lewis Hamilton, were both slapped with penalties during the race.

Hamilton, who led for much of a race was red-flagged on lap 21 as the street circuit was cleared of debris.

The Brit was forced to pit by race control to change his headrest which had come loose, leaving him fuming.

Under an earlier safety car Hamilton was hit by Vettel on the exit of turn 16.

Vettel, ahead of Hamilton in the championship race, threw both hands up in the air before pulling alongside his rival and then appearing to deliberately drive into the Briton.
