However, his third win of the 2014 season was overshadowed by the controversial racing incident involving Mercedes team mates, Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg.

Having conceded the lead of the race to Hamilton at the first corner, championship leader Rosberg attempted to re-pass on the following lap but as he tried to get around the outside and failed, then cut back, puncturing the tyre of Hamilton and consequently ending his race.

Another victory for the impressive Ricciardo, but who is the GMS driver of the weekend?
