Mercedes Sneaks Away With Fourth 1-2 Victory in a Row in Azerbaijan

The expectation going into the weekend at Baku was of Ferrari dominance with the Italian team showing strength in slow and tight corners thus far this season.

With Mercedes racer Valtteri Bottas netting pole position, it was up to him to keep teammate Lewis Hamilton at bay going into the first corner.

Leclerc started the race on medium compound tires and had stormed up to fourth in the first ten laps.

Leclerc then ran his starting tires quite late into the race in order to pull off a one-stop strategy with softs at the very end.

In the middle section of the race, things faded to a dull roar, and drivers just set about running laps.

Kimi Raikkonen quietly had a good race to finish tenth as he started from the pit lane in his Alfa Romeo.
