Max Verstappen won the Azerbaijan Grand Prix and took control of the World Championship after an engine failure on Charles Leclerc's Ferrari.

Leclerc's second engine-related retirement from the lead in three grands prix leaves him trailing Verstappen by 34 points, despite six pole positions in eight races.

And it continues the impression that Ferrari's season is falling apart after such a promising start, as Leclerc's team-mate Carlos Sainz also failed to finish following a hydraulic failure.

Verstappen led team-mate Sergio Perez to a Red Bull one-two, as George Russell took third for Mercedes, with team-mate Lewis Hamilton fighting back to finish fourth.

I Call True: Looks like it is still all to play for at the top with the reliability of the cars being what's stopping someone getting a clear run

I must say since all of the cars are performing equally, it has been a tad more exciting and due to this it looks like Verstappen is running away with it this year.

An interesting year in F1. Let's hope Britain's favourite and the worlds number one driver Lewis can find his form again.

And Hamilton is still complaining that the car is letting him down rather than the playing field has been levelled!
