Vettel says he "had to try" move on Bottas

F1 Hamilton wins chaotic Baku battle to lead title race

Bottas was comfortably holding off Mercedes team-mate Lewis Hamilton when he suffered a freak puncture on lap 48.

At the same time, Perez passed Vettel to take fourth place, which became third thanks to Bottas' retirement.

A ideal restart after the Safety Car and Bottas was on course for the victory.

Hamilton added: "It was really quite an emotional race to be honest". He praised his teammate for his exceptional job, and he stated that Bottas really deserved to win.

"But I kept going, I kept pushing, kept pushing and then things turned out the way they did and that was coming to the realisation of just how true still that mindset needs to be and is".

The race was heavily punctuated by accidents which included one in which the two Red Bulls of Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen collided while fighting for fourth place in the closing stages.

Spaniard Carlos Sainz was fifth for Renault with Monegasque rookie Charles Leclerc sixth for Sauber, his first points in Formula One.

McLaren, who had their worst ever qualifiers of the season, ended up with a double point finish with Fernando Alonso finishing seventh and Vandoorne finishing ninth.

The race had a chaotic vibe from the start, with a safety vehicle required on just the first lap. Sergio Perez ("Force India") - +4,0244.

At one stage he even called for the event to be abandoned as a truck precariously dealt with Romain Grosjean's stricken Haas after the Frenchman crashed out under the safety auto. "There was even a tiny chance to win the race on a normal strategy as well". Verstappen seemed to ignore the rule of moving just once to block an overtaking attempt and as he went left to cover Ricciardo, the Aussie was unable to slow down enough and rammed into the back of his teammate just as they crossed the line to start lap 40.

After four races of the season Lewis Hamilton for the first time topped the individual competition, ahead of Sebastian Vettel by four points. Sebastian Vettel (Ferrari): +5.329s 5.

As Bottas headed for victory, he ran over a piece of debris that had been left behind and the race took yet another unexpected twist. It wasn't until lap 35 that Ricciardo broke Verstappen's resistance and overtook the Dutchman around the outside of Turn 1 in trademark fashion.

With the safety vehicle deployed, Bottas came into the pits for a set of ultrasoft tires, as did the entire field, and emerged in the lead ahead of Vettel and Hamilton. Lance Stroll ("Williams") - +12,5469.
