Daniel Ricciardo has now beaten Red Bull team-mate Sebastian Vettel in the last five races. The Australian is congratulated by Vettel in parc ferme and then heads over to his mechanics to take the plaudits.

Daniel Ricciardo, who won the race: “I am still a bit in shock,” says Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo after winning his first race. “Thanks everyone. This is ridiculous. There are lots of Australian flags, which is nice. The race really came to life for the last 15-20 laps.

“Hamilton had a problem and Rosberg was slow down the straights. I really struggled to get past Perez but managed to finally get a run out of the last chicane and get a nice run out of turn one and set my sights on Nico with couple of laps to go. I finally managed to get in the right spot to use DRS and it’s an amazing feeling right now.”

Nico Rosberg, who finished second from Pole: “We had a problem at the pit stop and that is why I dropped behind,” says Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg, who finished in second. “Then I lost a lot of power in the straights but it did not quite work out. I couldn’t hold off Daniel Ricciardo.”

Sebastian Vettel, who finished final place on the podium: “Congratulations to Daniel,” says Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel, who finished third: “It’s his day. We had a big help from Mercedes, unlike other weekends, but we were there to capitalise. It’s been a positive day.

“Daniel’s first win and a first win for Renault in the new era of engines. They have had a good comeback although there is still plenty of work ahead of us because Mercedes are quicker down the straight. But all in all it’s been a good day.”
