The Azerbaijan Grand Prix was another race of what might have been for Ferrari, while Mercedes kept its focus and came away with a fourth one-two of the season. Not bad for a team that everyone, myself included, thought was on the ropes at the end of pre-season testing.
But the results only tell part of the story - so with four races in the history books it's a good opportunity to take a look at the performance trends that have emerged over the Australian, Bahrain, Chinese and Azerbaijan GP weekends.
Before digging into those details, I have to say that as part of the Mercedes supremacy Valtteri Bottas has come of age. Pole position, victory and retaking the championship lead is just the confidence boost he needs heading back to Europe. It's been between him and Hamilton so far, and Charles Leclerc is the only driver I see able to interfere with that intra-team battle.
