F1: Daniel Ricciardo wins his second race of the season in Hungary (+results)

By ,

Australian Daniel Riccardo won his second race of this season, this week-end during an eventful race at the Hungaroring.

The Red Bull driver was helped by some rain showers before the start and two safety car interventions, which shuffled the order.

One of the highlights of the race was when he overtook both Lewis Hamilton and Fernando Alonso in the final four laps.

After several attempts to pass the hyper-defensive Hamilton, Ricciardo eventually made a great move stick around the outside and then on lap 68 muscled past Alonso to claim the lead and his second grand prix win of the season.

"Winning this today, it honestly feels as good as the first. It sank in a lot quicker this one, so crossing the line today I knew what was going on a bit more and it's like I could enjoy it immediately rather than it being delayed, it was awesome," Daniel said afterwards.

"To have to pass guys again to win the race, as I did in Canada, makes it a lot more satisfying, knowing that we did have a bit of a fight on our hands.

"In this environment now I feel I am a different driver and in a way a different person, a different sportsman than I was last year. I've got a lot more belief in myself and it's cool, I definitely feel like I belong here now and I've got confidence!"
