Daniel Ricciardo Charges to Chinese Grand Prix victory for Red Bull Lewis Hamilton finishes fourth

Daniel Ricciardo used  a tactical masterstroke by his Red Bull team to win in Shanghai after championship leader Sebastian Vettel and Max Verstappen dramatically collided during a thrilling Chinese Grand Prix.

Mercedes Valtteri Bottas appeared on course to claim his victory after a strategy error by Ferrari allowed the Mercedes car to move ahead of Vettel during their one-and-only round of pit stops.

But the race took a second dramatic twist when the safety car was deployed following a coming together between the Toro Rosso pair of Kiwi Rookie Brendon Hartley and Pierre Gasly on lap 31.

The Chinese GP turned out to be  an epic race!

It was also an race which may have reshaped the title battle that could be causing re-thinking at Mercedes, Ferrari and Red Bull!

The popular Aussie Ricciardo, who has delayed his contract talks with Red Bull until April, may have earned him a choice of seat for next season as he sliced through the field to win in Shanghai.
