Daniel Ricciardo has been voted the Driver of the Day for the German Grand Prix after finishing second at Hockenheim for Red Bull Racing.

Ricciardo celebrated his 100th Formula 1 race in style by passing Mercedes’ pole-sitter Nico Rosberg at the start before overhauling teammate Max Verstappen in the third stint of the race.

Although he was unable to catch race winner Lewis Hamilton, Ricciardo managed to cross the line second to match his best result of the season so far.

The Australian has now also won the Driver of the Day vote conducted by the official Formula 1 website, as announced on Monday.
