Reuters, SHANGHAIDaniel Ricciardo yesterday made a string of thrilling overtaking moves to snatch a surprise Chinese Grand Prix victory after a safety car strategy gamble by his Red Bull team paid off handsomely. “I was in no-man’s land today,” Hamilton said. Bottas was in the lead at that stage ahead of Vettel, having overhauled the German during the pitstops, while Verstappen was fourth and Ricciardo sixth. The advantage of fresh tires allowed Verstappen and Ricciardo to scythe through the field. “The safety car was so unlucky for us,” Bottas said over the radio.
