Daniel Ricciardo wins the China GP!!

In a stunning show of overtaking following a lucky break with the safety car Daniel Ricciardo in his Red Bull has won the Chinese GP.

Sebastian Vettel started the race on pole for Ferrari but was undone by the safety car and a turbulent Max Verstappen.

Team radios were busy with frustrations and angst as the race slipped away for Hamilton whose tire weared his patience thin.

Strategy remains a crucial element of success in Formula one with the team bosses sweating on great tactical maneuvers.

Overtaking was a feature of the race particularly in the last half of the race, where differences in tyre wear created opportunities for positional change.
