Ricciardo wins 'crazy Baku GP
  Lance Stroll drives best race ever for 3rd

In what can best be described as a 'crazy' Azerbaijan GP, Red Bull's Daniel Riccardo won over Mercedes Valtteri Bottas who passed rookie Williams Lance Stroll right at the line. At one point Bottas was over a lap behind and dead last. The crazy finish was setup by contact between many cars all around the Baku street circuit that resulted in multiple safety car periods, a brake check by Hamilton on Vettel and retaliation by Vettel by turning into Hamilton that resulted in the Ferrari driver getting a 10-second stop-and-go penalty.

Hamilton wins 66th F1 pole in Baku
  Now one ahead of Senna

Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas drove their superior Aldo Costa designed Mercedes F1 cars to a front row lock out for the Azerbaijan GP on Saturday afternoon. How superior is the Costa car? The Ferraris on row two were both over 1-second per lap slower. In other words, no one has a chance against the Costa machines and Sunday should be another boring Mercedes 1-2 parade at the front.

Hamilton dominates in Canada
  by Brian Carroccio

A day after equaling Ayrton Senna's 65 Formula One career poles, Lewis Hamilton earned his sixth win at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, with a dominating, flag-to-flag victory in the Canadian Grand Prix. Hamilton's Mercedes AMG Petronas teammate Valtteri Bottas was second, with Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo rounding out the podium in third. It was a difficult day for Ferrari, as Sebastian Vettel incurred contact on the opening lap with Max Verstappen. Vettel did however, manage to come home fourth (from dead last), passing Sergio Perez with three laps remaining.
