Ultimately, though, the day belonged to Ricciardo, and while his sixth Grand Prix win may have been aided by a favorable safety auto period, his consummate drive to victory was littered with a series of clinical overtaking moves, and was all the more satisfying after an engine failure on Saturday limited his running earlier in the weekend.
The smile was broader than ever as Daniel Ricciardo savoured a surprise ChineseGrand Prix victory in his own inimitable fashion on Sunday.
And if anyone you know had predicted Daniel Ricciardo winning the ChineseGrand 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!
SHANGHAI (AP) - Red Bull driver Daniel Ricciardo yanked off his right shoe, poured champagne into it as he stood on the podium, and then drank up to his unlikely victory in Sunday's ChineseGrand Prix.
After the safety auto was deployed on Lap 31 when the two Toro Rossos collided the Red Bulls pitted straight away to go onto the softs, having earlier moved to mediums, and in the latter stages of the race that proved to be the difference.
Ricciardo got quicker and quicker and took the lead on the 45th lap of the 56-lap race, overtaking Valtteri Bottas with a dive on the inside past the Mercedes driver.
"Occasionally I wonder why I chose this game simply because there' s therefore lots of activities out of one's control plus it'll get you down lots of".

Verstappen pushed hard and managed to get ahead of Hamilton and Vettel but he couldn't catch Raikkonen, as the Ferrari went in search of compatriot Bottas.
With 11 laps remaining, Ricciardo snatched victory from Bottas on his fresher tyres. "We just got a bit unlucky - but that happens sometimes".
"That gave us a bit of grip on the restart". It isn't going my way at the minute so I'll go away and analyse this and hopefully come back stronger. There's no clear favorite and plenty of questions.
Red Bull's win adds a fresh wrinkle to a season in which Ferrari had surged out in front, with Vettel stunning Hamilton and Mercedes by taking the first two races of the season. Vettel dropped behind after colliding with Verstappen at turn 14 before the end of the race, which dropped him down the order. His teammate Verstappen soon unsuccessfully attempted to follow suit and the two cars touched, dropping the Dutchman to fifth and Vettelto seventh.
Nevertheless, he still leaves Shanghai with a nine point lead in the drivers' standings.
However, misjudging the distance between himself and the former four-time world champion led to the two making contact and spinning 180 degrees as Hamilton and Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen managed to make it through. Kimi Raikkonen was third for Ferrari.
