Professional leadfoot and all-around top bloke Daniel Ricciardo has cemented his arrival as a genuine Formula 1 championship threat of the next decade by posting his maiden victory at the Canadian Grand Prix overnight in Montreal. Ricciardo survived a wild race that saw both championship frontrunners, and Mercedes team mates, Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton hit with power issues, to claim his first victory in an F1 car, piloting his Red Bull Racing rig home ahead of a limping Rosberg in second, and Red Bull team mate – and noted thorn in every Australian racing fan’s side – Sebastian Vettel in third.
