Nico Rosberg drove a faultless race from pole position to chequered flag on the streets of Baku in Azerbaijan. He won by 17 seconds but it was clear that he had had plenty in hand and did not go as fast as he might because there was no real threat from Sebastian Vettel’s Ferrari. In the closing laps Sergio Perez overtook Kimi Raikkonen for third, although he did not need to do it as the Finn had a penalty that would have given Perez the place no matter what happened. Lewis Hamilton did a sterling job to finish fifth, but he was hampered on his way by problems with his car. Amazingly, the race ran full distance without any Safety Cars, a bit surprise considering the chaos in GP2
