Verstappen got a little lucky Sunday when three drivers who finished ahead of him in qualifying were penalized, lifting the Dutchman to 16th on the starting grid.

Christian Horner reckons Max Verstappen is "right up there" with Formula 1's rain masters as he has a "sixth sense" in the wet.

"He appears to have an nearly sixth sense in the wet".

"His first lap in particular was mighty". Max at that stage seemed happy with his vehicle than Daniel and for the first time in the race they started to race each other and Max made a good pass with Daniel giving him enough space on lap 11, 12 and thereafter Max was able to chase after Lewis but as the circuit dried out, the performance advantage that Mercedes had shone through.

"Daniel at that stage of the race looked a lot more comfortable with his auto, and then over the last 10 laps it was just a question of letting the guys race, and they did that fairly and it was the only thing we asked before the race and on the pit wall. Yeah, nine cars is quite a lot on one lap".

"I was honestly a bit bored so I just thought let's bang some wheels and get the crowd excited!", he joked.

While Verstappen seemed flustered over the team radio, complaining about back-marker Romain Grosjean, he kept Ricciardo at bay to hang on to take a remarkable podium finish. The German driver called time on his racing career just five days after he won the 2016 Formula One drivers' championship.

"Max has obviously done a fantastic job since he's been in the sport and he's been a real breath of fresh air for everyone", said Hamilton. He's got a great following and he's definitely been in some great situations in some races and really maximised above and beyond, which is why he gets driver of the day.

While others struggled to pass, or even stay on the track, the Red Bull driver stormed through to the field.

That is despite the fact that Sebastian Vettel carried Ferrari's winter promise into the 2017 season by winning the recent Australian grand prix. His Ferrari team pulled him into the pits to change to slick tyres on just the second lap following the deployment of the virtual safety auto as Lance Stroll was punted out of the race by Sergio Perez. The result leaves Hamilton and Vettel hand-in-hand on 43 points.

"At the moment we don't have enough rear grip, downforce basically", the Australian told reporters in Shanghai "To be honest, I don't know if it's we don't have enough or we just haven't set the vehicle up in the right way".
