Race winner Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo speaking to BBC Sport’s Eddie Jordan: “I think back home there is a huge following for F1 but this is almost as many Aussie flags as there was in Melbourne so thanks so much. It is a bit different when you lead the race for that long, it’s more about composure and trying to keep steady. Once Nico went in I knew he would be quick at the end so I had to keep my pace u to stay ahead of him.

“When you are leading the first thing is you hope everything holds together, mechanically you hope everything gets you to the finish line but certainly when you are in the lead the chequered flag can’t come soon enough.”

Mercedes’ Nico Rosberg, who finished second, speaking to BBC Sport’s Eddie Jordan: “I got a good run on Lewis and tried to go round the outside and we just touched in the end unfortunately and it hurt both of our races, but that’s just how it goes. I have not seen it yet so it wouldn’t be good of me to comment on it, I will have a look at it and then speak about it.

“I was pretty confident [we could get a one-two] we had good race speed but unfortunately it didn’t work out for us today.”

Williams’ Valtteri Bottas, who took third place on the podium, speaking to BBC Sports Eddie Jordan: “The team has been doing a very good job, we are certainly going it the right way. We are still chasing for the higher step but for this season we are going the right way. I think this season it’s going to be tough, we need to be lucky because Mercedes are very quick and on a track like this so were Red Bull. There is still work to do but we are going the right way.”
