The Red Bulls are 8.6 seconds ahead of the Ferrari in third place now. Max Verstappen chases after Sergio Perez after taking the inside line on the turn to take the Ferrari. Max Verstappen is in third place, Carlos Sainz in fourth. Verstappen gets into third as both Ferraris and Aston Martins pit. DRS will be a huge help for the Red Bulls on the straight today. Verstappen makes a better start than Leclerc but the Ferrari manages to keep first place. Max Verstappen won the Azerbaijan Grand Prix last year and will be keen to become the first driver to win it twice.
