United States Grand Prix driver ratings

Motor Racing - Formula One World Championship - United States Grand Prix - Race Day - Austin, USA

Daniel Ricciardo - 10th place, 1 point: 8/10

Ricciardo was one such driver to suffer misfortune after a clash with Nico Hulkenberg ruined his race. Ricciardo was excellent in the opening stint as he climbed from fourth to first on track including an excellent move on Hamilton for the lead. That Ricciardo quickly opened up a gap of over six seconds shows how good the Red Bull was in the wet and he exploited the performance until he track dried and he dropped back rapidly. Hulkenberg hitting him at Turn 12 damaged his car and Ricciardo had dropped out of the points before a reliability issue for Fernando Alonso prompted him back to tenth.
