Sergio Perez said before the Formula One season started that he needed five races to get up to speed with Red Bull and the Mexican duly delivered by winning the sixth in Azerbaijan on Sunday. If victory fell into his lap after team mate Max Verstappen crashed out with a tyre blowout five laps from the end while leading, it was still richly deserved. Perez had qualified only seventh, moving up to sixth after McLaren's Lando Norris was demoted, but he showed his pace throughout.
Lewis Hamilton has had plenty of magic moments in his record-breaking Formula One career but Sunday's Azerbaijan Grand Prix was one he would rather forget. "I hit some sort of switch which caused only the front brakes to work," he told reporters. "There's a button we have to help heat the front brakes up and as Perez pulled over I reacted and accidentally (turned) on the switch and just locked up going straight as I only had front brakes."
McLaren's Lando Norris said he had been unfairly punished and stewards should have a rethink after being handed a grid penalty at the Azerbaijan Grand Prix on Saturday. The 21-year-old was handed a three place drop and three penalty points for failing to enter the pits immediately on qualifying being halted in Baku. Norris told reporters he had taken the safer course of action, had not put anyone in harm's way and had gained nothing.
