It is second win of the season and the seventh of his career.
The West Australian said it was redemption after slipping out of contention due to a botched pit stop.
“Two years in the making and I finally feel redemption has arrived,” Ricciardo said.
“I lost power halfway and I thought the race was over. Thanks to the team we got it back. I’m stoked.”
