Drama for Max Verstappen: Dutch phenomenon was in the lead, but crashes due to a blowout in Azerbaijan GP

Drama for Max Verstappen in the GP of Azerbaijan. The Dutchman was leading the Grand Prix in Baku with five laps to go, but suddenly lost control of the steering wheel due to a blowout on a straight. The match was stopped.

On a straight, things suddenly went wrong for the Red Bull Racing rider, who crashed into the guardrail and lost his leading position. The Dutchman was very disappointed and even went back to the car to see what went wrong. His frustration ran so high that he threw a shovel at his car in full frame.

Verstappen was not the only one who got into trouble with a blowout in Baku. Lance Stroll also had the same problem 15 laps earlier on the same stretch. The Belgian Canadian was not yet as far as Verstappen and therefore had a lower speed when he got his tire blowout.

The race was halted for almost an hour to allow the organization to clear the track. Sergio Perez was allowed to start the race again with three laps to go as the leader. Hamilton tried to surprise him, but went completely wrong in the first corner by driving completely straight in the too wild attempt.
