Ricciardo overjoyed with first F1 podium
11 May 2014 – Daniel Ricciardo was elated after notching up his maiden Formula 1 podium finish in Sunday's Spanish Grand Prix.
The Red Bull driver, who was denied the privilege due to disqualification at the season-opener in Australia, finished best of the rest as the Mercedes duo of Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg dominated.
"It's really nice to be on the podium and I'm sure we'll get to keep it this time!" joked Ricciardo, who moves up to fifth in the standings.
"We had a pretty comfortable third. I just had to make the tyres last.
"Mercedes were a long way ahead. Coming into the race we knew a boring one would be good for us."
In the sister Red Bull, Sebastian Vettel delivered an impressive comeback drive to rise to fourth from 15th.
