Max Verstappen beamed from ear to ear after his spectacular victory in the Formula 1 Grand Prix of Azerbaijan. “I’m really happy because I finally had the right balance in the car. I had an incredible pace and I could pay close attention to the tires. I could really go the extra mile today,” said the winner after the race.

He recorded his fifth win of the season and the 25th of his career. In the all-time ranking, the Dutch driver of Red Bull has risen to joint ninth place. He is now on par with three-time World Champion Niki Lauda and two-time World Champion Jim Clark.

“Of course I was a bit lucky because of the Ferrari retirements, but the car was very good today. The grip was good and I kept the tires intact, that’s what you need,” said the Dutchman, who did not forget to include team-mate Sergio Pérez in his success. “We finish first and second again today, so it’s a good day for us.”
