Daniel Ricciardo has won an incredible Malaysian Grand Prix, fighting off teammate Max Verstappen for his fourth Formula 1 victory on a disastrous day for Mercedes.
Ricciardo raced home 2.443 seconds ahead of his Red Bull teammate, winning a tense mid-race scrap which became the battle for the win with a third of the race to go.
Lewis Hamilton’s bid for a third consecutive championship is on the rocks, retiring with a blown engine after leading the bulk of the race. It leaves Nico Rosberg with a 23 point lead in the standings.
Through it all, Ricciardo raced through to take his first win of the season.
