Red Bull Racing's Ricciardo wins Chinese GP

Daniel Ricciardo wins Chinese F1 GP

World champion Hamilton was oddly off Bottas' pace and aborted his final lap after running wide, but he was at least faster than the Red Bulls, Verstappen (fifth) beating Daniel Ricciardo by 0.152secs in a session Ricciardo didn't look destined to start at all after a spectacular turbo failure in final practice.

The result tightens up the drivers' championship, with Vettel's lead narrowed to nine points over Hamilton, 54 to 45, with Bottas just five back on 40 and Ricciardo - who also set the fastest lap and picked up the Driver of the Day Award - leaping up to fourth on 37.

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.

ESPN rounds up the main talking points from a chaotic Chinese Grand Prix where Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo stunned Mercedes and Ferrari to record his sixth victory in Formula One.

And if anyone you know had predicted Daniel Ricciardo winning the Chinese Grand Prix after a weekend that saw him nearly miss qualifying due to a turbo failure in his Red Bull-Tag Heuer RB 14's Renault engine, then you know they are definitely pulling your leg!

Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel on his crash with Max Verstappen: "I didn't see him until late and left a bit of room".

But the safety vehicle threw in a curve ball and Red Bull grabbed their chance. Lewis Hamilton dropped back to fifth, as the first portion of the race passed without much incident.

At the front, Ricciardo held his ground to win the Chinese GP 2018 in style, with a 8s lead from second placed Bottas. But around the 33rd lap, back markers Pierre Gasly and his Toro Rosso teammate, Brendon Hartley, collided at turn 14, throwing debris all over the hairpin. The Aussie made his way through to P1 after taking out Verstappen, Hamilton, Vettel and Bottas.

To get there, the company is starting a pilot program in D.C.to share "curb usage" data across all modes of transportation. With Getaround's model, auto owners decide for how long they want to make their vehicle available for rental.

But, on the fresher and faster rubber, Ricciardo carved his way sweetly past his rivals to clinch his first win since Baku previous year.

"Saturday and Sunday felt like a disaster from my side", Hamilton said.

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.

In the constructors' stakes, Mercedes now have a one-point advantage over Ferrari, 85 to 84, with Red Bull moving into a clear third place on 55.

Renault's Carlos Sainz and Haas's Kevin Magnussen completed the top 10 in a race that will live very long in the memory.

When asked what differentiates the two Red Bull drivers, Horner added, "They're different ages".

"I've only got six - it's not a whole lot but the wins always seem to come under some circumstances". I was expecting him to come earlier.

Sunday's triumph was the roughest of rsquo & Ricciardo;sometimes overtaking manoeuvres and s career and are overrun by breathtaking, using all the triumph.
