Sergio Perez had a great race in Baku with a podium finish and he had to wrest that away from Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen who was facing a 5-second penalty but just to be safe, the Force India driver passed the Finn on the final lap.
The fans voted Perez driver of the day and that’s his second win of that fan-voted award having secured it in Monaco for his podium finish there. Hi European Grand Prix podium brought him equal to the legendary Mexican driver Pedro Rodriguez and went a very long way to settling the team into 5th in the Constructors’ championship.
The other impressive new from the race was the record-equalling pit stop pulled off by Williams who clocked a 1.92s effort and that equals Red Bull’s record from 2013. The team worked very hard at perfecting their pit stops and have been the fastest in the first 8 races of the season.
An incredibly impressive effort from Williams and Force India’s Sergio Perez who added some color to a rather dull race in Baku.
