Baku 2017: Mayhem in Azerbaijan

Lewis Hamilton leads Sebastian Vettel during the 2017 Azerbaijan Grand Prix.

Inexplicable collisions, retirements, multiple safety cars, accusations between title rivals, a rookie makes history, and heroic drives from far back in the field – last year's Azerbaijan Grand Prix had it all.
