Red Bull’s Max Verstappen sets the pace in first practice ahead of the Azerbaijan Grand Prix… but the nightmare from Monaco continues for Mercedes with Lewis Hamilton placing seventh and Valterri Bottas in tenth

Championship leader Max Verstappen finished fastest in the first practice session for Sunday’s Azerbaijan Grand Prix. Hamilton could only finish seventh after he ran off the track on his best lap. Hamilton will be keen to bounce back in the sixth round of the campaign after finishing seventh in Monte Carlo – ending his run of 19 races at the top of the standings. The seven-time world champion was the fastest out of the blocks in Baku but he did not improve on his early time after he went straight on at the left-handed Turn 15 on his second fast run.
