Everything was going normally for Verstappen with five laps to go before the race ends. However, a puncture in the left rear wheel caused a severe accident in the middle of the main straight. This made the Dutchman have to abandon the race of the Azerbaijan Grand Prix and give a blow to the World Cup.
The Dutchman had been leading the race very comfortably, so he escaped in the World Cup. Especially thanks to the work of Sergio perez. The Mexican had a spectacular race, and overtook at the pit stop Lewis hamilton, after the British lost time in the pitlane, at the stop.
With this abandonment, Pérez goes on to lead the race after starting in sixth position in the Grand Prix. The Mexican is facing the great chance of achieving his second victory in the Formula 1 and the first with the team Red bull.
For his part, Lewis Hamilton goes on to lead the championship (if nothing happens) and gives a tremendous blow to Max Verstappen’s aspirations to continue fighting for the title. On the other hand, Pérez gives Red Bull a hand, as it would maintain the first place in the constructors’ classification.
