The City That Drives! Grand Prix Azerbaijan 2017!

That time of the year again when the fastest 20 drivers in the world gather in your hometown. If last year the Grand Prix was called European Grand Prix, now it's officially called Grand Prix of Azerbaijan. Below you can see the photos from Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday race days.

Let's have a look on what happened on Saturday in Baku City Circuit. 
The morning has started with "2 hours waiting (pardon, melting is the correct way to say it) under the sun" for Mercedes's autograph session. 

The waiting was worth to see 3 times F1 World Champion - Lewis Hamilton :)  

It's such a honor to be a guest of Williams Martini Racing😊
Can not be thankful enough to Jon, from Williams, for giving me opportunity to see the other side of pit line-paddock. 

Below the photos from the F1 paddock.

What a F1 without Scuderia Ferrari

F1 Azerbaijan Grand Prix 2017 was most exiting and remarkable race of the 2017 season. 
Sebastian Vettel had 12 points lead over Hamilton in the driver's championship, and where Mercedes led Ferrari by 8 points in the constructors' championship. Lewis Hamilton was on pole. However, due to the headrest on his car that got loose, he had to enter to the box to fix it. After yellow and red flags, Daniel Ricciardo claimed his 5th career victory, ahead of Valtteri Bottas, and Lance Stroll who became the first Canadian to stand on the podium since Jacques Villeneuve at the 2001 German Grand Prix and the youngest rookie driver ever finished on the podium.
