Sebastian Vettel scored his 53rd career pole at Baku. It was Ferrari's 216th pole position as a team and 217th as an engine manufacturer.

It was Vettel's third consecutive pole of 2018. The German last scored a hattrick of pole positions in 2013 (Italy, Singapore and South Korea).

However, due to different weather conditions, Vettel's pole lap of 1m41.498s was almost a second short of Hamilton's all-time Baku record of 1m40.593s.

For the first time in history of F1, two four-time world champions lined up alongside on the front row of the grid. It was also Vettel's 87th front row start, which puts him level with Ayrton Senna's tally. Hamilton, meanwhile, started from the front row for the 120th time in his grand prix career - a record.

Vettel has now scored pole positions at 23 different circuits. He's now the joint holder of that particular record with Hamilton.

Due to the safety car and Valtteri Bottas' puncture, Hamilton chalked up his 63rd F1 win. It was Mercedes' 77th win as a works team and 163rd as an engine supplier.

With that result, Hamilton has now won at 25 different race tracks. He also equaled Michael Schumacher's record of winning 25 different grands prix (a country's grand prix may take place at different venues, for example Hockenheim and Nurburgring alternatively hosted the German Grand Prix).
