Azerbaijan Grand Prix has been suspended after a high-speed crash involving Red Bull's Max Verstappen.

Azerbaijan Grand Prix has been suspended after a high-speed crash involving race leader Red Bull’s Max Verstappen. When the race was halted, there were three laps left from the finish line. Verstappen was on his way to victory when his car crashed due to a tyre puncture. The Dutch was absolutely devastated as he was headed for a big win, considering even the Drivers’ Championship.
