Ricciardo may have won, but it wasn’t a cut and dry win for the Australian. Midway through the race, he began to report a loss of power. Naturally, Ferrari found out and Vettel went on the attack. Fortunately, the circuit’s narrow nature was a major blessing in disguise.
Vettel closed up on several occasions but was unable to stick a nose in. As it turned out, Ricciardo was racing with a nearly 2-second deficit. The pace had been slowed down to such an extent that Hamilton, Kimi Raikkonen and Valtteri Bottas had all caught up.
Soon there was a 5-car train consisting of Both Mercedes, Both Ferraris and Ricciardo’s Red Bull leading them. They gapped each other for a while before they bunched up again, with 6th placed Esteban Ocon nearly joining the party.
