Daniel Ricciardo Stuns Grid, Wins Formula One Race in China

Daniel Ricciardo Stuns Grid, Wins Formula One Race in China

Only a minor miracle by his mechanics that were well-intentioned allowed him to be eligible sixth, placing Ricciardo in the suitable location for you to capitalise to the safety vehicle that frees the race rsquo & Red Bull;s way.

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.

Ferrari ace Vettel started from pole in Shanghai, and early on looked on course to take his third win of the year.

The Australian, who had already passed Raikkonen, then picked off Hamilton, Vettel and Bottas to clinch a stunning win.

Sebastian Vettel had taken both of the opening races of the season, but could finish only eighth after he sustained damage to his auto during his coming together with Verstappen.

Bottas held off a late surge from Ferrari's Raikkonen to finish second, albeit nine seconds down on a jubilant Ricciardo.

Pilot Red bull Daniel Riccardo in bright style became the victor of the third race of the season in Formula 1. The "honey badger", as he refers to himself, was relentless in his pursuit of race leader Bottas and on lap 46 he dived down the inside of the number 77 Mercedes at a right-hand turn and assumed the lead of the race.

Earlier frantic opening lap had seen Verstappen to jump up to third, with Lance Stroll also one of the earlier benefactors of the early stages.

Hamilton escaped without damage to his Mercedes auto last week, but the same could not be said for Vettel and his Ferrari here.

The collision that saw the safety vehicle deployed was deemed to be Pierre Gasly's fault, and he was given a ten-second penalty.

"24 hours ago I thought we may be starting at the back of the grid". "I had no pace".

Carlos Sainz and Kevin Magnussen wrapped up the top ten with Renault again recording a double point's finish.

"I feel like every win I've had it's been a similar circumstance". It was insane, a lot of fun. He had a tyre advantage, yes, but he made a series of brilliant overtaking moves, and gave Verstappen a lesson in how to balance aggression with judgementWhat happens next?

His passing move on Lewis Hamilton on the turn 14 hairpin from well back was particularly audacious, seemingly catching the four-time world champion by surprise. "It felt like we should have had the victory, but not today". Now I realized that I wasn and that people had a auto to triumph't definitely going to be fulfilled until finally I had been in the lead.

As the safety vehicle period ended on lap 36, Bottas was able to avoid any attacks from Vettel but all eyes were now on Verstappen in fourth place.

Kimi Raikkonen, who finished third: "I think we made a good start, got blocked a bit and got passed in the first corner".

Quote of the day: Daniel Ricciardo brilliantly summed up his racing philosophy on the podium, saying "sometimes you've just got to lick the stamp and send it".
