Cover picture for the articlePierre Gasly admitted he drove half of the Azerbaijan Grand Prix with a power unit issue that made his battle with Charles Leclerc for third place even more intense. Leclerc had started from pole position but dropped back in the race, with Gasly sitting an impressive fourth once Max Verstappen retired with a tire failure late in the running. Promoted to third on the restart when Lewis Hamilton went off, Gasly then lost out to Leclerc at the end of the penultimate lap, but immediately hit back into Turn 1 and held on to complete the set of having finished first, second and third in F1.
