Ricciardo triumphs in Malaysia as Hamilton's engine explodes

Daniel Ricciardo won the Malaysian Grand Prix on Sunday taking the chequered flag just ahead of team mate Max Verstappen.

The Red Bull one-two came at the end of a dramatic race at Sepang.

World champion Lewis Hamilton was leading the course with 15 laps remaining but his Mercedes engine blew up and he was forced to retire.

A tearful Hamilton held his head in his hands after the malfunction which has dealt a blow to his chances of securing a third drivers' championship in a row.

The 31-year-old Briton is now 23 points behind Nico Rosberg who survived a spin on the first bend involving Sebastian Vettel and a 10-second penalty to take third place.

Ricciardo celebrated his first win of the season on the podium with a "shoey" - drinking champagne from his driving boot.

Verstappen, who turned 19 on Friday, celebrated his runners-up spot and his birthday in the same fashion.
