1st one was a bittersweet but Hungary I can enjoy – Ricciardo

Daniel Ricciardo secures his second podium finish of the season for Red Bull Racing in a Hungarian Grand Prix.

The Australian perfectly launched the start for the lead into turn one but was unable to keep P2, Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg instantly attack on turn two.

Following the first pit-stop the Red Bull ace challenge Mercedes duo, Red Bull attempted a risky early second pit-stop on lap 34, hoping Ricciardo could undercut Rosberg and grab second place.

But Red Bull got caught behind lapped cars and the tyre advantage waned. Finally finished third ahead of the other Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel, Ricciardo’s third consecutive podium at Hungary was a welcome return to form, having bested his teammate in qualifying and the race.

“It’s great to have another podium this year, obviously the first one was a bit bittersweet but this one I can enjoy,” Ricciardo said, referencing the pitstop debacle that cost him victory in Monaco.

“I’m super happy to be here today it’s three years in a row i’ve been on the podium at this circuit.

“Thanks to the team, we are continually getting better so that’s great and, yeah, i’m having fun.”

Ricciardo jumped to third place in the championship standings with Lewis Hamilton taking the lead from Rosberg for the first time this season.

While his team-mate the young sesation Max Verstappen held off a hard charging Kimi Räikkönen to take fifth place.
