  • Daniel Ricciardo crashed out of the Chinese Grand Prix

  • Ricciardo was on track for a points finish before the incident 

Daniel Ricciardo was on track for a points finish before a cruel twist of bad luck hampered the Australian’s race at the Chinese Grand Prix.

Ricciardo was poised to finish in the top 10 before Aston Martin’s Lance Stroll went into the back of him before the first safety car restart, causing significant damage to his rear wing.

The incident was caused by Fernando Alonso locking up going into the turn, resulting in the following cars braking suddenly. Ricciardo hit Oscar Piastri’s diffuser before Stroll sent the back of Ricciardo’s car into the air, such was the severity of the impact. 

The Australian could not overcome the issue and was forced to retire his car, in another poor result for him amid a miserable return to Formula One this season.
