Ricciardo wins dramatic Canadian Grand Prix

AUSTRALIAN Formula One driver Daniel Ricciardo has claimed his maiden victory in a crash and incident-packed Canadian Grand Prix.

The 24-year-old ended Mercedes early-season domination when he drove his Red Bull past the chequered flag, ahead of championship leader Nico Rosberg and teammate Sebastian Vettel.

Fox Sports reports, Ricciardo’s win meant he has now beaten Vettel in the last five races, a feat that saw him receive well-deserved congratulations from his team-mate in the aftermath of a drama-laden event.


The final lap was run behind a safety car after a horrifying high-speed collision between Force India’s Sergio Perez and Williams driver Felipe Massa saw them fly off into the barriers.
