F1: Australia’s Daniel Ricciardo Raced to Victory in Shanghai, Thrilling the Sold Out Crowd

$RACE

Red Bull Racing’s Daniel Ricciardo, who might not have even qualified for the race (but did) put on a winning show at the Chinese Grand Prix, while teammate Max Verstappen’s reckless driving thwarted Ferrari’s (NYSE:RACE) championship leader Sebastian Vettel run for the Chequered Flag.

Red Bull pit wall management masterfully pitted Mr. Ricciardo during the safety car, giving their driver the advantage of fresh tires in the bunched up field.

Mr. Ricciardo made good use of the extra grip overtaking Lewis Hamilton, Mr. Vettel and MercedesAMG’s race leader Valtteri Bottas to move to lead, after Mr. Verstappen gave up 4th place to the Australian in a dust up with the defending champion.

In his typical all in bid for the podium, the Mr. Verstappen saw room where there was none, and spun out Mr. Vettel at the hairpin on lap 43.

The shunt landed the clumsy Max Verstappen with a 10-sec penalty and left Mr. Vettel a damaged sidepod, the pair finishing 5th and 8th, respectively.

Mr. Ricciardo then built up a nice lead over Mr. Bottas to claim victory, with Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen taking 3rd and Mr. Hamilton 4th.

Baku next on the 29th of April

Have a terrific fort night.
