F1 race results: Sergio Perez wins Azerbaijan GP, and his teammate Max Verstappen comes in second in Red Bull 1-2.
Red Bull’s Sergio Perez won the Azerbaijan Grand Prix, the fourth round of the 2023 Formula 1 World Championship, in Baku.
Perez benefited when team-mate Max Verstappen pitted just before a safety car, which cost him two places.
Before that, Verstappen had passed Ferrari’s pole-winner Charles Leclerc to take the lead at the start of lap 4 and pulled away. A safety car was called after Verstappen made his pitstop, dropping him to third as his rivals pitted under yellow.
Despite quickly repassing Leclerc, Verstappen dropped out of Perez’s DRS range and never got within striking distance.
