Ricciardo delighted by shock China GP win

Daniel Ricciardo wins Chinese F1 GP

Raikkonen's teammate and championship leader Sebastian Vettel finished a lowly eighth following a collision with Red Bull's Max Verstappen, which earned the Dutch driver a 10-second penalty.

"Two minutes later yesterday and we would have started the race today from the back.I'm super, super thankful that they helped me pull this off today".

Before the start of the 15th edition of the Chinese Grand Prix, you could be forgiven for thinking the Red Bulls weren't in Shanghai for a win, let alone a podium finish.

"Holy Testicle Tuesday", the 28-year-old exclaimed when asked what his reaction would have been had someone suggested in winter testing that Red Bull would win a race before champions Mercedes this season. Lewis Hamilton dropped back to fifth, as the first portion of the race passed without much incident.

Free practice had suggested tyre wear would be a crucial factor in the Chinese Grand Prix, with Pirelli bringing the new ultra-soft tyres to the race, but nobody was sure just how long the tyres would last.

Vettel still leads the season standings with 54 points in three races.

He committed F1's cardinal sin by crashing into team mate Brendon Hartley at the hairpin on Lap 30 of the 56, scattering debris across the track. It seemed the German would be within DRS range and able to challenge Bottas, but the Mercedes driver seemed to have enough to hold Vettelat at bay, despite appearing to suffer from a blistered right-rear tire.




"It's easy to say afterwards I should have waited, it probably would have been the best idea but unfortunately it happened".

Pilot Red bull Daniel Riccardo in bright style became the victor of the third race of the season in Formula 1. Verstappen was forced to take evasive action and go off the track as Hamilton took the normal racing line, resulting in him dropping behind Ricciardo who was shadowing the pair looking for an opportunity.

The Finnish driver got ahead of Vettel and it looked like the race would boil down to the Ferrari driver saving his tyres for a big push to overtake the Mercedes driver before the end of the race. Verstappen meanwhile was given a 10s penalty for causing that collision.

As the Red Bulls charged, Hamilton pointed out to his team in the pits that they had been caught out by not stopping to change what was the slowest tyre which already had significant life on it.

Elsewhere, Renault's Nico Hulkenberg finished a fine sixth, with teammate Carlos Sainz ninth and Haas driver Kevin Magnussen rounding out the top ten.

Sunday's triumph was the roughest of rsquo & Ricciardo;sometimes overtaking manoeuvres and s career and are overrun by breathtaking, using all the triumph. "It kind of felt like we deserved a victory, but not today". "I was defending, obviously saw him very close in Turns 1/2/3".

"Sometimes you've just got to lick the stamp and send it", he added of the lunge on Hamilton for third place.
