F1i's Driver Ratings for the Chinese GP

Daniel Ricciardo (P1, 25 pts) : 9.5/10
On Saturday, a blown turbo forced an engine swap, and only three minutes remained on the clock when he gave it some opposite lock out of his box in Q1. After a relatively low-profile first half of the race in sixth place, it all lit up for the Aussie during the safety car period. On fresh rubber, the Honey Badger came into his own, delivering a string of 'Danny Ric' signature overtakes during his spectacular 23-lap charge. The outcome? His sixth F1 career win and a swig of the bubbly from his right boot!
