F1 Race Recap: A Street Fight in Azerbaijan

Blog: The Tibco Blog

As drivers took to the track for the fourth race of the 2018 Formula 1 season, the narrow twists of the Baku City Circuit presented a perfect opportunity for TIBCO partner and reigning world champions Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport to reclaim the top step on the podium.

As the start drew closer, Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas suited up and headed to the grid for their P2 and P3 starting positions.

At lights out, the fireworks began flying right out of the gate with serious drama on the first lap.

Both Hamilton and Bottas made a clean escape from the melee and continued on into the tight streets of Baku.

While Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel desperately held onto P1 with both Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport drivers in his mirrors, the Silver Arrows had other plans. One fastest lap after another, Hamilton steadily chipped away at Vettel’s lead.

But just when things were looking up for the champ, more trouble arose…

A crash between both Red Bull drivers brought out another Safety Car, presenting an opportunity for a pit stop. Bottas slipped in for a fresh set of tires and charged back onto the track in P1, with competition close on his tail.

With few obstacles between Bottas and the finish line, the Flying Finn looked to be in control of the race with Hamilton slotting into P2. Until a bit of on-track debris led to a heartbreaking development.

With Bottas out, Lewis hammered ahead into P1 and across the line!

After an incredible effort from both drivers and the tireless work of the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport crew, it was time to celebrate the first victory of 2018!

Next up: the Spanish Grand Prix in Barcelona on May 13!
