GPFans F1 Podcast #5 – Baku breaks records, Leclerc crashes out and Ayrton Senna remembered.

Mercedes wrote themselves into Formula 1’s record books by securing a fourth one-two finish from as many races in the Azerbaijan Grand Prix, with Valtteri Bottas regaining top spot in the drivers’ championship by holding off team-mate Lewis Hamilton in Baku.

Rob Watts and Matt Scott are on hand to break down the race in Baku – not the crazy spectacle we’ve seen in recent years, but still with plenty to discuss.

There was more Ferrari disappointment as Charles Leclerc’s chances went up in smoke with a qualifying crash and Sebastian Vettel was tricked by Mercedes in the pole position shootout.

It was another race to forget for Pierre Gasly and Daniel Ricciardo, while Williams’ 2019 plumbed new depths as both George Russell and Robert Kubica were involved in huge accidents.

As well as the Baku weekend, we look back at the 25th anniversary of Ayrton Senna’s passing, his impact on F1 today and where he stands among the sport’s greats still a quarter of a century on from that tragic weekend in Imola.
