Mexican F1 driver Sergio Pérez is back on the podium after coming in third after Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen and winner Lewis Hamilton, for Mercedes,  at the Azerbaijan Grand Prix.

The Force-India driver got his first points of the season after a dramatic race which has opened the road for his eighth award.

Sebastian Vettel (Ferrari), who started from pole and led with a comfortable advantage most of the race and the championship, suffered a puncture and arrived fourth. Hamilton is the new F1 leader with an advantage of four on Vettel.

“I'm speechless,” said Pérez after the race.

Sergio "Checo" Pérez is the Mexican driver with the most F1 awards in history but he had failed to take the podium since 2016. After 36 races; however, he can open the champagne again.
