Ricciardo Wins Baku GP, Hamilton's Shameful Move On Vettel

But the Australian sensationally led the race with 18 laps remaining - after Lewis Hamilton pitted when his headrest came loose, and Sebastian Vettel served his 10-second penalty - before sealing both his and Red Bull's first victory of the year.

Any one of those stories was worth its own headline, but ultimately the podium shake-up was overshadowed by the heavyweight dust-up at the top of the world championship that saw championship leader Sebastian Vettel deliberately drive into the side of Lewis Hamilton after accusing the race leader of brake-testing him under the safety auto.

Ferrari star Vettel was handed a 10-second stop-go penalty for "dangerous driving" after he deliberately drove into Hamilton s Mercedes while both were following the safety vehicle.

After eight races of a see-saw season, Vettel's Ferrari leads second-placed Hamilton's Mercedes by 14 points — 153 vs. 139.

The safety auto came out three times in quick succession before a red flag stopped the race on lap 22 of 51 because debris littered the track. Data, studied by the race stewards, proved that Hamilton did not "brake-test" his rival - and that Vettel deliberately veered his auto in the Briton's direction.

Vettel, who claimed Hamilton had "brake-tested" him, was handed a 10-second stop and go penalty but Hamilton claimed the punishment allowed his rival to get away with unsafe driving that put them both at risk.

Putting up a good fight for second was Valtteri Bottas, but it was Williams' rookie driver Lance Stroll, who managed to wow fans all over the globe bagging his first ever podium, just two weeks after picking up his first ever points in Formula one.

"Crazy race. This is the race we expected last year, with all the safety cars and all the chaos and we got it this year". "I just wanted to tell him, because I can't literally talk to him, that what he did was not right".

"We had a little bit of luck with the penalties for Lewis and Sebastian and it gave us our first victory of 2017", he said. For this, stewards slapped Vettel with a 10-second drive-through penalty for unsafe driving.

The company had a rocky start to 2017, with a 15 percent drop in sales in the first quarter; sales of Barbie were down 13 percent. According to Barbie history, Ken and Barbie met on the set of a TV commercial in 1961 and have been inseparable ever since.

Vettel and Hamilton charged back through the pack, but the Briton was never quite close enough to exact his revenge. Vettel then appeared to turn deliberately into the body of Hamilton's Mercedes. I think he disgraced himself today.

Immediately after the clash, Vettel shouted over the team radio: "He brake tested me". "I like to think that I remain respectful and I'll continue to do so". I really hope that kids don't see that and think that is the right way.

After his penalty, imposed by the stewards for risky driving, Vettel recovered to finish in fourth, one place ahead of his British rival.

Niki Lauda, the non-executive chairman at Hamilton's Mercedes team, was equally scathing of Vettel, saying: "He freaked out in himself".

Hamilton got away cleanly, but Raikkonen clipped Bottas and bumped his own Ferrari into the wall, and Vettel surged past them into second place. In the end we are racing with men.

Bottas went behind Stroll's slipstream at the final straight and overtook just ahead of the chequered flag.

"From my side, you know, I was on the inside, he was obviously outside, he did brake later and he was kind of ahead but I was on the inside".

Stroll's reward? Urged by podium MC David Coulthard, Stroll drank from the shoe of Ricciardo.
