    With so much happening on track, it's understandable that the drivers weren't getting up to quite so much mischief in the paddock, thus it is a quieter rankings week this time out. There's still time for some juggling, and some singing, as well as a glimpse at the Force India boys in happier times - will they still be like that after what happened in Baku?

    Where do you start with this one? What a race! The championship rivals went head to head in Azerbaijan and then came to blows at crawling pace. Hamilton was robbed of victory by his headrest and there were enough collisions to fill up half a demolition derby. The first two drivers on the podium came from the back and some midfield runners secured landmark results while others flat out threw away chances of points.

    Coming up on this show, we discuss three part rage, another change of attitude and several surprising top threes. It was a packed race so naturally we have a packed podcast full of discussion about the top three on the podium in Baku, and many of the events that allowed them to get there.

    Daniel Ricciardo won after mostly inheriting the lead but doing a good job with it. Valtteri Bottas fought back from another first lap incident with Kimi Räikkönen to finish second, with Lance Stroll keeping out of trouble for an impressive third place.

    Whilst the result of this Baku race was hugely unexpected, the mechanics of how we got there was an absolute riot. More pieces of carbon fibre were swept away by the mechanics than remained running on track, and somehow we had two retirements become unretirements, only for the drivers to pick up similar penalties and both then retire from the race once more.

    Jolyon Palmer was unable to participate in qualifying in Baku after a fire on his Renault during FP3. That meant there were just four drivers dropped out in Q1, but they were the usual suspects – McLaren, Sauber and Haas.

    First practice in Azerbaijan was dominated by Sergio Pérez, who crashed his Force India into the barriers at turn eight – a supremely narrow section of track that was the scene of plenty of drama. A lack of grip, smoke from tyre lockups, running wide off track and missing apexes and diving into run off zones was the order of the day, as the tricky Baku track caught out many a good driver.

    Monisha Kaltenborn has been a mainstay at Sauber for many years, and has seen the team through several financial crisis situations during her time as team principal since 2012. Now, however, her tenure at the top has come to a close as she departs the team effective immediately. A statement made by the new owners, Longbow Finance, said the split was “by mutual consent and due to diverging views of the future of the company.”

    Much of the attention in recent days has been on the FIA's calendar announcement for next season, with a bumper schedule groaning at the seams. Before we get there, though, we've got the small matter of the rest of this year to finish. For the 2017 race, Baku has become the Azerbaijan Grand Prix, rather than the European race as it was last year. The street circuit didn't have the best of debuts so here's hoping there is more coming from the race this weekend.

    The World Motorsport Council have signed off on the 2018 F1 calendar, a lot earlier than normal, and have approved 21 separate events to equal the largest season, alongside 2016. The most visible changes to the calendar include a return to Germany and France, the latter having been off the schedule for a decade, as well as the departure of the Malaysian Grand Prix.

    The week between races can often be a bit slow for driver activity, but that's not the case this time out. We've got reactions from the Le Mans event, a new drink related extra-curricular activity and looking for pace even in the most mundane of places. Canada's been and gone and it's over to Baku the drivers are heading, so we'll be watching closely to see what they get up to.

    There was quite a lot to talk about following the Canadian Grand Prix - the team orders debate sparked up again, a discussion over which teams are only running one decent driver, as well as the continuing woes at McLaren (when will they end??) and the brilliance of spotting a Ferrari cap at 200mph.

    As ever, Canada didn’t disappoint. While Lewis Hamilton was dominant at his favourite circuit with a sixth win – though Hungary could equal that record later in the year – there was drama through the pack. Let’s not forget that on Sunday morning, Hamilton was ready for a fight, he raised his game in qualifying to set a monumental lap time and once Vettel was wounded and Verstappen was halted, the Brit did everything he could to cut Sebastian Vettel’s championship lead.

    There's a lot of team-building going on in this week's rankings, with many activities before, after and during the Canadian race to help foster good relationships within each squad. Red Bull threw their guys in the water, Mercedes told their two to get on their bikes, and there was even some simultaneous head-drawing at Force India.

    Lewis Hamilton led away from pole, remained out front for every lap and took a comfortable race victory over teammate Valtteri Bottas. Behind him, though, there was chaos. Max Verstappen swept up into second off the line but his Red Bull gave up just a few laps later. Carlos Sainz swiped into Felipe Massa, knocking them both out of the race on the first lap. Sebastian Vettel took some front wing damage that dropped him down the order but he fought back to fourth place.

    There was talk of rain and safety cars, but in the end only one of those predictions came true. The gusty conditions didn't provide too much of a challenge to drivers, but they had plenty else to think about. Tyre strategy was paramount, as was dealing with safety car periods (both virtual and physical).
