Christian Horner is hoping that Daniel Ricciardo’s Chinese GP win will persuade the Aussie to re-sign with Red Bull as he is “one of the best” in the business.
Ricciardo came from sixth behind the Safety Car to win Sunday’s Chinese Grand Prix ahead of Valtteri Bottas.
The Aussie proved his credentials as one of the sport’s best overtakers as he came from nowhere to late-brake his way past Lewis Hamilton while also passing Kimi Raikkonen, Sebastian Vettel and Valtteri Bottas.
“He’s a very rounded driver now,” Horner said.
“He’s absolutely at the top of his game and I think he has been for the last couple of years.
