Baku played host to an extraodinary race on Sunday afternoon as Max Verstappen muscled his way into a commanding lead before a late crash put him out of the race and triggered a red flag - but the drama didn't end there.

After a 35 minute stoppage the drivers all lined up on the grid for a two-lap dash to the flag, with Sergio Perez on 'pole' for the re-start. Lewis Hamilton was in second, but locked his brakes into Turn 1 and sailed past Perez into the escape road, dropping him right out of the points in a dramatic final twist to the race.

From there Perez led the pack home to take his first win for new team Red Bull, with Sebastian Vettel a superb second - having started 11th - and Pierre Gasly third.

And if that wasn't enough, there was also drama on Lap 30 when Lance Stroll crashed heavily on the pit straight. The Aston Martin driver was thankfully unhurt - but his incident would prove to be just the opening salvo in a race packed with action.
