Canada's Lance Stroll makes history at Azerbaijan Grand Prix

The 2017 Formula 1 Azerbaijan Grand Prix - the 8th round of the 2017 FIA Formula One World Championship - was held in Baku June 23-25.

Hamilton led the race until being forced to pit to replace a headrest that had come loose, but the events that preceded that setback - several Safety Car deployments for debris, which Hamilton thought had been mishandled, and then a freaky incident with Vettel in which the Ferrari driver rear-ended Hamilton's Mercedes before a restart, and then deliberately ran into the side of the Briton's car in apparent retaliation for Hamilton slowing in front of him - left Hamilton more irate.

Bottas meanwhile produced a brilliant drive to take his fifth podium finish of the season, having dropped to the back of the field after a first-lap bump with fellow Finn Kimi Raikkonen.

Ricciardo survived three safety auto periods, two early pit stops and a red flag stoppage to rise through the order and capitalize on trouble for title rivals Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel, with both dropping back down the order after dominating early on.

However, Vettel will have more margin for error following the Austrian Grand Prix in two weeks' time as two of his penalty points are due to expire the following Monday, leaving him five off a ban until the day after the Malaysian Grand Prix when the next two are due to expire.

Together they will all join the more than 100 diverse looks launched in the Barbie Fashionistas line in the last three years. It was just a matter of time after Barbie got a politically correct makeover that her friend Ken would follow suit.

"He brake-tested me!" an angry Vettel said, while Hamilton argued differently.

With the win Ricciardo stays fourth in the drivers championship while Vettel moved 14 points ahead of Hamilton at the top.

"It was just a insane race, we knew the podium was a chance after the restart and then we heard about the problems with Lewis and Seb", Ricciardo said. I just went over the kerb, bottomed out and the vehicle jumped and hit him.

Ricciardo moved into the lead when Vettel was forced to serve a penalty for unsafe driving, and went unchallenged en route to victory in Baku from there, finishing 3.9 seconds clear of the pack.

"Deliberately driving into another driver and getting away pretty much scot-free as he still came fourth, I think that's a disgrace". "I'm sure he didn't do it on goal but for sure it was not the right move".

But tax authorities later found that some of the information presented in that settlement was incorrect, the prosecutors said. I believe everyone must comply with their tax obligations, and I know that Cristiano always does things the right way.

Then on lap 34 race control slapped Vettel with a 10-second stop-go penalty for "dangerous driving" in the incident with Hamilton.

"I am a bit lost for words", said Stroll.

But Bottas had to pit on the second lap for a new front wing, dropping to last.

Introduced to the F1 calendar in 2016 as the European Grand Prix, the 3.73-mile Baku City Circuit has an interesting layout.

In a rare bright spot for McLaren, Fernando Alonso placed ninth for his team's first points of a frustrating season. "I do my talking on the track".
