AZERBAIJAN GRAND PRIX - RACE
The 2017 Azerbaijan Grand Prix had everything - wheel-to-wheel racing, heart stopping overtakes, safety car periods and even a red flag. Most importantly for McLaren-Honda, the race also yielded the team's first points of the season, thanks to a superb performance by Fernando Alonso. Both drivers excelled out on track, keeping pace with the cars around them, avoiding incidents and capitalising on other driver errors. Fernando ran as high as 5th for a time but eventually crossed the line in P9, to take two well deserved World Championship points. Stoffel took the chequered flag in P12 but was also just a couple of seconds away from a points paying position. The team looks ahead to Austria in a fortnight, buoyed by this step up in form.
