Lewis Hamilton needs his luck to drastically change in Azerbaijan. Already nine points behind Sebastian Vettel, the defending champion has yet to win a race this year.Baku's emphasis on straight-line speed could favor Hamilton and Mercedes this weekend, but the British driver has struggled in both previous races held at the track. Mercedes dominated the last four seasons but is in a three-way fight with Ferrari and Red Bull this year.Vettel said Mercedes remained the favorites but the differences are minuscule.Last year, there were two safety car periods before a red flag restart. Tempers flared, with Hamilton and Vettel making contact behind the safety car.Stroll's three 14th-place finishes are its best results so far this year and he's not expecting much improvement this weekend.
