Remarkable Ricciardo's recovery to victory in China

F1 news featuring Daniel Ricciardo

With nothing to lose, Red Bull's pit-wall crew immediately called in their drivers Max Verstappen and Ricciardo in to change their tyres from the harder medium compound Pirellis to the soft compound tyres.

Ricciardo started sixth, and the ability to threaten on a victory at the Aussie appeared after the accident, the two pilots Toro Rosso.

Ricciardo and teammate Verstappen made their moves toward the top after they opted to switch to soft tires during a safety auto period at about the mid point of the race.

Bottas was second while Raikkonen recovered from his bollard job to finish third ahead of Verstappen and Hamilton.

Ricciardo dived in for new soft tyres with 23 laps remaining, while erstwhile leader Bottas and his main challenger Sebastian Vettel stayed out on mediums having passed the pitlane entry before the safety auto was deployed.

Kimi Raikkonen took third place for Ferrari, but title contenders Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel both endured trying afternoons, the four-time world champions ending fourth and eighth respectively.

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. Hamilton, who has been off colour all weekend, salvaged fifth.

Verstappen crossed the line fourth, but that turned into fifth as the stewards handed him a 10-second penalty for hitting Vettel. Carlos Sainz was ninth, with Kevin Magnussen taking a single point for Haas.

The advantage of fresh tires allowed Verstappen and Ricciardo to scythe through the field. "(We were) thankful for a few incidents ahead that kept us in the battle". "From where we were yesterday you would not have believed we would be here today". The soft tires paid in the end, as both Ricciardo and Verstappen had incredible pace in the final minutes.

The Australian had appeared set for a pretty boring drive to fifth in the first half of the race, without the pace to challenge those ahead and a solid margin to Kimi Raikkonen behind.

"I saw him defend so I wanted to go shallower but I thought about pulling out..."

And the 28-year-old warned the pair that they should not give him such an opportunity again or else he will continue to make them pay.
