Daniel Ricciardo wins Malaysian Grand Prix

Australian driver Daniel Ricciardo has claimed his maiden Formula One win of the season in the Malaysian Grand Prix after reigning world champion Lewis Hamilton retired from the lead with a blown engine.

The Australian’s Red Bull teammate Max Verstappen finished second to score the former champions’ first one-two finish since the 2013 Brazilian Grand Prix, denying Mercedes the chance to wrap up the constructors’ title at the Sepang circuit.

Nico Rosberg finished third, despite collecting a 10-second time penalty after colliding with Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen, to extend his gap over Hamilton to 23 points in the overall standings.
