Verstappen wins in Azerbaijan after Leclerc engine failure


BAKU, Azerbaijan (AP) — Max Verstappen has extended his Formula One championship lead with victory at the Azerbaijan Grand Prix after Charles Leclerc retired from the lead with an engine failure. Leclerc looked on course to challenge for the win but the Monaco driver’s car started spewing smoke on lap 20 of 51 and he had to pull into the pits. It was his second retirement in three races. Leclerc had overtaken teammate Sergio Pérez shortly before and cruised to his fifth win of the season.
