Daniel Ricciardo picked up another podium this season for Red Bull Racing as he maintained his qualifying pace in the race to split the two Mercedes at the Singapore GP.

Nico Rosberg first to regain the 2016 championship lead with Lewis Hamilton third, while Max Verstappen will be disappointed after slipping to sixth.

The Scuderia Toro Rosso cars also fell down the order after an excellent Saturday with Danilil Kyvat ending up in ninth place and Carlo Sainz 14th.

Ricciardo is third in the 2016 driver standings with Verstappen sixth, while Red Bull Racing are second in the constructors race with Scuderia Toro Rosso seventh.

Daniel had this to say post race “It was close today. We did everything we could and I thought it was pretty much a perfect race. The only thing that would have been better was to get Nico at the start. Then throughout the race, I wasn’t really thinking about what happens when I catch him I was just focusing on trying to catch him and put some pressure on. I knew his engineer had been on his radio saying: “Ricciardo is catching you two seconds a lap.” It’s not a nice feeling to hear that, so I was just trying to keep on pushing and keep the crowd entertained. I pushed so much at the end with that super soft and really tried to do something but it wasn’t close enough. I don’t really leave here with any regrets. Obviously, we came here to win and we didn’t but I felt we left it all on the track.”
