Sergio Perez has won the Azerbaijan Grand Prix.
Today’s win for the Red Bull driver solidifies his name in the history books as the first driver to secure repeat wins at the Azerbaijan GP.
Perez crossed the line 2.1s ahead of team-mate Max Verstappen, while Charles Leclerc held off Fernando Alonso to take third place for Ferrari.
The Mexican driver jumped onto the team radio after crossing the line and gave an emotional celebration before saying: “Well done guys, we dominated this weekend.
“We just have to sort out the issues, we cannot have the issues like Melbourne, we need to fight guys”.
He then added: “VAMOS!”
Speaking to reporters after the race, the Red Bull driver said: “It really worked out today for us.
“We managed to stay in the DRS train and keep the pressure on Max.
“I think we had better degradation on that first stint.
“I think it was very close between us, we pushed to the maximum today, we both clipped the wall a few times.
“The was Max pushed me today was really hard but we managed to keep in control”.
Leclerc, who finished in P3 said: “Red Bull are in another league when it comes to the race.
“A very good (qualy) lap managed to put us in front but over 51 laps it was just not possible, they have so much pace than us in race pace.
“They found something that we didn’t yet.
“The feeling is a little bit better but when I see the gap, we don’t really know how much we closed the gap.
“The Aston Martin was also really quick so we have some work to do.
“Fernando was pushing, I knew what his intentions were at the beginning.
“At the end it was close but not enough for Fernando today”.
