by Mark J. Cipolloni Daniel Ricciardo is proving every race that he has all the makings of a great world champion someday.

Sebastian Vettel again beat his Red Bull teammate comfortably and will start on the outside of row 1, but nearly 1/2-second slower than the Mercedes.

Lewis Hamilton came back from a 20th starting spot and bullied his way to the front in the 2nd Mercedes, breaking wings and bodywork of everyone he came in contact with - his signature driving style, to finish third. Valtteri Bottas was second for Williams holding off Hamilton to the flag.
