Formula One: Hamilton regrets being 'too friendly' to Bottas

First Practice For Baku Grand Prix Abandoned After Driver Hits Loose Drain Cover

Ferrari can barely keep up. We had a brief conversation in the mid-part of a year ago, but subsequent to that there have been no conversations. Back then, Nico Rosberg bested Hamilton in a titanic ontrack clash which became a bitter personal feud.

After that, he was too far back and all that was left was to go for the point for fastest lap.

"Ferrari have looked incredibly quick", said Hamilton, who won in Baku previous year and leads Bottas by six points in the overall standings.

"It's very, very hard and ultimately you always have to remember that when you're in a team as big as this, you're only one person and there are so many people who depend on us", said Hamilton.

Sebastian Vettel put his Ferrari in third place, rounding out the podium.

Baku has been a highlight of Williams's past two - increasingly tough - seasons.

While Durant eventually overcame some inefficient nights, he let his frustration get the better of him in a Game 2 ejection . In games when he has four or more fouls, Curry averages 21 points on 33 per cent shooting on threes with a plus/minus of +4.

"It means a lot". The cost of replacing the components is said to be significant and will only add to financial woes of the team. "It is only my fifth win, so of course it feels good".

Bottas was on course for victory in Baku a year ago when a blown tyre three laps from the end handed it to Hamilton instead.

The Ferrari pair were comfortably clear of closest challenger Lewis Hamilton, the championship leader and five times world champion, who was 0.669 seconds slower than Leclerc's best in his Mercedes. I can't really work it out. He then caught and passed Verstappen for fourth by lap 10 by which point he was only four seconds behind his teammate. Leclerc did score an extra point for setting the fastest lap of the race.

Mercedes have opened the season with three one-two finishes in as many races, marking the strongest start to a season for any team since Williams in 1992.

Race officials made a decision to end the session as track repairs were carried out, the F1 site reported.

Sunday's race was nothing like that.

Then on Monday, Buttigieg said during a CNN town hall meeting that "God doesn't have a political party". The Afghanistan veteran has repeatedly said he sees no disconnect between his faith and his sexuality.

Bottas started from pole position and kept Hamilton at bay as the Mercedes duo went wheel-to-wheel through the opening three bends.

Gasly had charged from the pitlane up to a comfortable sixth but his Red Bull, fitted with an upgraded Honda engine for this weekend, had to be parked up on lap 39.

"Most likely, he would have been overtaken by Ferrari or something like that".

Had the safety auto come out, it could have saved Leclerc's race, but his challenge faded with his tires.

Bottas kept Hamilton at arm's length until pitting on lap 12, one lap after Vettel and one lap before Hamilton.

Among the four retirements were Kvyat and Daniel Ricciardo, who have been summoned to the stewards over a freaky incident in which Ricciardo reversed into Kvyat trying to get back on track after a failed overtaking attempt at Turn 3.
