Lewis Hamilton is targeting an improved personal display at this weekend’s Azerbaijan GP as he seeks to increase his world championship lead.
Hamilton was a fortunate victor 12 months ago in Baku after profiting from Valtteri Bottas’ puncture two laps from the finish. In 2017 and 2016, he could only manage fifth-place finishes after requiring an extra pit stop to fix his headrest and hitting the wall in qualifying respectively.
