After the initial round of pit-stops Ricciardo was running third after passing Bottas, also the Williams speedy struggled in the final stint; Sebastian Vettel grabbed his way up to fourth from 15th on the grid, with Bottas managed to finish in fifth.
“I’m really happy for us – 10 points is very good. All the time we were in the points and today we got the maximum out of the tyre strategy and me from the car. It was a shame in the end that Vettel came so quickly but we got the points.
“The atmosphere [in the team] is better of course when its quicker. We are all the time fighting for the points in the races so it’s a good feeling to have that hunger and all the time we want more.”
