Daniel Ricciardo wins chaotic Azerbaijan GP; Canada's Lance Stroll finishes third

Daniel Ricciardo's unexpected triumph contrasted starkly with Max Verstappen's latest early exit with mechanical problems as Red Bull pondered a day of mixed fortunes at Sunday's Azerbaijan Grand Prix.

Valtteri Bottas of Mercedes, who came in second at the Azerbaijan Grand Prix, said the race was exciting.

The 32-year-old Briton was leading in Baku when the safety vehicle was deployed for a second time.

Mercedes driver Hamilton, who won in Canada last time out and started on pole, was seemingly on course to pick up a comfortable victory and make further inroads into Vettel's championship advantage after maintaining his lead following a red flag. An irate Vettel then accelerated alongside Hamilton and appeared to deliberately swerve back into him.

"If I get a penalty then we should both get a penalty", the German driver said.

Vettel was given a 10-second stop-go penalty, but Hamilton lost valuable time changing a loose headrest at the same time.

And, before celebrating with a customary "shoey", Ricciardo reflected on an incident-packed race.

It was also a superb performance from Stroll, the son of a billionaire, who faced heavy criticism earlier in the season. I took it to the end and just lost out to Valtteri - that may have been one of the closest ends to a race ever!

The safety auto was deployed for the third time as debris was cleared, albeit too late for Raikkonen, who sustained damage to his vehicle after running over bodywork at Turn 1, forcing him to head to the garage.

As teams waited for the race to resume behind the safety auto, Ferrari and Force India were both able to complete rapid repairs on Raikkonen and Perez's cars to get them back into the race, albeit two laps down on the field.

He was as far back as 17th after an unscheduled pit stop early on, 10th by the time the first safety vehicle came out and fifth by the end of the third.

Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo won what will be regarded as a race for the ages following three safety vehicle periods, one red flag and a series of notable incidents.
