Winner: Max Verstappen claimed the checkered flag on Sunday at the Azerbaijan Grand Prix. Red Bull finished 1-2 with Sergio Pérez coming in second along with the fastest lap, followed by George Russell in the Mercedes car. Ferrari had a disastrous day as both Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz were DNFs. Leclerc and Verstappen exchanged the lead but then on lap 20, Leclerc’s car went up in smoke and he had to retire. That followed Sainz retiring after a hydraulic failure on lap 9.

Pole-sitter Charles Leclerc lost the lead at the start but regained it when the leading Red Bull of Max Verstappen pitted on Lap 19. One lap later, Leclerc’s race went up in a puff of smoke and he crawled back to the pits to retire. This would be Ferrari’s second retirement of the race as Carlos Sainz stopped with a hydraulic failure on Lap 9.

All that being said, the race will likely wrap sometime near 9 a.m. ET.

Verstappen is the favorite and starting in the third position, while Charles Leclerc will start the race in the pole position. He claimed P1 for the fourth straight race and the sixth time this season. He won the first three races this season and is +205 to win this race.
