Lewis Hamilton experienced excruciating back pain throughout the Azerbaijan Grand Prix, however he did manage to finish in P4. After the race he explained what he was going through.

“[I was] biting down on my teeth through the pain,” Hamilton explained.

“Just adrenaline. I can’t express the pain you experience on the straight here, at the end I was praying for it to end.

“We are in such a good position still, third and fourth is a great result for the team. They did a good job with the strategy.

“Once we fix the bouncing we will be right there in the race. But we are losing over a second with the bouncing.
