"Holy Testicle Tuesday", the 28-year-old exclaimed when asked what his reaction would have been had someone suggested in winter testing that Red Bull would win a race before champions Mercedes this season.

A bold pass on Valtteri Bottas for the lead capped a stunning charge from Ricciardo after Red Bull opted to pit him during a safety vehicle for fresh tyres.

He took the lead on the 45th lap, overtaking Valtteri Bottas of Mercedes - one of several impressive overtakes from the Australian.

Due to the incident between Vettel and Verstappen, Renault F1's Nico Hulkenberg was sixth, 21.052 seconds behind race victor Ricciardo with McLaren-Renault's Fernando Alonso a surprise seventh place after Vettel's Ferrari looked vulnerable following Verstappen's collision.

SHANGHAI (AP) - Red Bull driver Daniel Ricciardo yanked off his right shoe, poured champagne into it as he stood on the podium, and then drank up to his unlikely victory in Sunday's Chinese Grand Prix.

Carlos Sainz and Kevin Magnussen wrapped up the top ten with Renault again recording a double point's finish.

Further down the field, Vettel was obviously suffering with a damaged auto, as Fernando Alonso squeezed past the German on lap 55 to take seventh place, with the Ferrari driver complaining of having been pushed off the track.

Lewis Hamilton will move up a place after finishing in fifth with Nico Hulkenburg putting in a great drive to finish in sixth ahead of McLaren's Fernando Alonso in seventh place.

"Obviously today we had really strong pace in the second half of the race and I think once we get to Europe it'll start to balance itself out". He passed Hamilton and closed in on Bottas, but had to settle for third place in the end.

Red Bull started from the third row but did not look like it had the pace to challenge championship leaders Ferrari and Mercedes. "The team were rewarded for getting out in quali, but this is the best reward possible".

"It was hectic, I heard safety vehicle [was being called] in T14".

"That was unexpected", Ricciardo said of his victory.

"We have been underperforming".

"Two minutes after yesterday and we'd have begun the race today from the back..." We had the soft tyres, so I knew I could get more out of the braking than them. "(We were) thankful for a few incidents ahead that kept us in the battle".

Although he may be disappointed not to taste a win, he did extremely well to defend from Vettel and Raikonnen for long spells of the race. Ricciardo took advantage of his fresh rubber to outbrake Raikkonen at the hairpin, taking fifth place. This incident had a significant impact on the rest of the race, as the shards of carbon fibre that were left strewn across the track caused the safety vehicle to be deployed on lap 32.
