This was Ricciardo’s first win in three races, as he last won the Heineken Chinese Grand Prix on April 15th. He led 12 of the 56 laps and won by more than eight seconds over Valtteri Bottas.

Sebastian Vettel, who used to be Ricciardo’s teammate, finished second. He finished seven-plus seconds behind the Australian driver.

The Scuderia Ferrari driver received 18 points for his effort on Sunday.

Hamilton was the third driver on the podium. He was 17 seconds behind Ricciardo’s time, as the Mercedes AMG Petronas Motorsport driver finished third.

He also received 15 points.

Charles Leclerc and Brendon Hartley left on lap 70 when they crashed into each other. Fernando Alonso, who was appearing in this race for the first time in two years after racing in the Indianapolis 500 last year, finished in the 20th position with a gearbox problem in his McLaren.

Despite the win, Ricciardo still trails both Vettel and Hamilton in the points standings. He is 38 points behind leader Hamilton, who has 110 points. Vettel is second with 96 points.
