Daniel Ricciardo wins Chinese GP after series of overtakes

Verstappen, who was criticised last weekend for a move on Lewis Hamilton, would ultimately come to harm again though with some rash overtaking attempts - taking to the grass after a move on Lewis Hamilton didn't pull off, he then hit championship leader Sebastian Vettel, dropping him further down the field and earning himself a 10 second penalty.

Ricciardo took the lead with just 10 laps to go when he charged past then-leader Valtteri Bottas, who ended up second in his Mercedes.

The opening stint of the Chinese Grand Prix was largely free of drama, with Vettel on course for his third win in as many races this season.

Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo celebrated with a trademark champagne "shoey" after winning a thrilling Chinese Grand Prix on Sunday, just a day after engine trouble almost cost him a shot at qualifying.

There is a two-week break before the Azerbaijan Grand Prix, where the long, long straight is likely to leave Red Bull breathless and make Ferrari favourites.

While Ricciardo enhanced his reputation as one of F1's best overtakers, his team-mate Verstappen enhanced his reputation for impetuosity.

Next, the man from Perth was asked about the late decision to pit both he and Verstappen after the Safety Car was called.

Shocker: While it was celebrations for one Red Bull it was disappointment for the other.

Verstappen carried on, but picked up a ten-second penalty that dropped him to fifth.

"He's learning so for sure, he'll have taken a lot of lessons out of this Grand Prix".

She added this a challenging task and even with modern technology it can be hard to ensure all voids have been accessed. Vasquez said the homeowner reported problems with the heater throughout the day.

Frustrating results for the Scuderia Toro Rosso driver Pierre Gasly who took 18th position and Bredan Hartley who DNF after the teammates had a mild collision.

The Australian carved his way through the field from sixth place, after taking on fresh tyres under a safety vehicle, to storm to the sixth grand prix victory of his career.

"Opportunity be knocking! That's what I would say".

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.

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.

Verstappen tried to pass Hamilton around the outside but instead nearly bumped wheels and went off the track.

"Two minutes after yesterday and we'd have begun the race today from the back..."

Vettel seemed headed for the podium in third on lap 43 when Verstappen clipped him on turn 14, sending them both spinning and several places down the race order.

He finished in fifth place, ahead of Niko Hulkenberg's Renault. Carlos Sainz was ninth, with Kevin Magnussen taking a single point for Haas. "(We were) thankful for a few incidents ahead that kept us in the battle". "I was defending, obviously saw him very close in Turns 1/2/3".
