Lewis Hamilton (No. 44) could only finish fifth at Sunday's European Grand Prix in Baku.
His Mercedes teammate and title rival Nico Rosberg led from start to finish to extend his championship lead to 24 points.

The circuit ran through the streets of the Azerbaijan capital with spectacular views of the iconic "Flame Towers."
The 6-kilometer track -- the second longest of the 2016 season behind Spa -- snaked through the old city, running alongside the medieval walls of the castle.
The track is home to the longest straight on the F1 calendar -- the 2.1-kilometer stretch saw drivers top speeds of 360 kph (224 mph).
The track is also home to the tightest section of track in F1. At its narrowest point, the "Tower turn" (pictured) is just 7.5 meters wide.
Trackside trees are an unusual sight on a Formula One track, which are traditionally held on purpose-built circuits.
The city streets rang to the sound of Formula One cars from Friday to Sunday.
The street circuit was expected to cause problems for the drivers -- especially at the start (pictured) -- but there were no major incidents during the race.
Located on the Caspian Sea, Baku spent five months preparing for three days of F1 action.
