Bottas brilliance

Superb strategy drive from Valtteri Bottas, humble in victory.

Lap record 1.43.009 to Charles Leclerc.

Gearbox failure to Pierre Gasly, Ricciardo’s Renault parks it down the run off road, no points for the Renault factory team.

Four rounds so far, a 1-2 for MercedesAMGF1 each of them.

One year ago 2 laps to go Bottas had the win taken from him, a year later he capitalises on his efforts with the team.

Lewis Hamilton never gives up, his start wasn’t a great one even though holding onto 2nd.

Sebastian Vettel still has tyre issues with a lot of inconsistency through the race with very little pressure placed on the AMG cars.

WINNER Valtteri Bottas (FIN) Mercedes AMG F1 W10. 28.04.2019. Formula 1 World Championship, Rd 4, Azerbaijan Grand Prix, Baku Street Circuit, Azerbaijan, Race Day.
