In what has to be the worst case scenario for Red Bull, Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo have crashed into each other at the Azerbaijan GP.
Daniel Ricciardo had been putting the pressure on Max all through the race, trying to get past him, and after multiple attempts, he did manage to go through, but after both drivers got done with their pit stop, Max Verstappen somehow came out on front.
Ricciardo was brought into the pit lane at first, courtesy of his position in the race, and Red Bull decided to go in with the the supersofts for the last part of the race.
Verstappen came in a lap later and surprisingly came out in front of Ricciardo, maybe because Ricciardo committed some mistake during his out lap with the supersofts.
Ricciardo was then trying to get past Verstappen and just when the duo entered DRS zone, Ricciardo made his move, trying to get on the outside of Verstappen.
Verstappen did open the door initially but then close it immediately, and Ricciardo was still trying to find that open space, something that was just not there.
Ricciardo then finally crashed into Verstappen from behind, ending the race for both the drivers.

Safety car has been deployed with Bottas now as the race leader, after the top 3 decided to pit as soon as the safety car had come into place.
Who will take the blame for the crash this time? Was there enough space for Ricciardo to go through?
