Furious Vettel hits Hamilton under safety car as Ricciardo wins thriller

Race win graphic

Sebastian Vettel was penalised for driving into Lewis Hamilton in a chaotic and incident-packed Azerbaijan Grand Prix but the German still extended his title lead as a loose head restraint cost the Briton victory.

A remarkable race that featured three safety cars and several crashes, including clashes between team-mates, was won by Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo.

Vettel was given a 10-second stop-go penalty for swerving into Hamilton’s Mercedes as they prepared for a re-start at the end of one of three safety car periods.
