"Fortunately I did enough work early on while I had the opportunity, while he was behind Valtteri". So we get a good start, but it's also really important that we try to maintain position.
Ricciardo - who had been dogged by bad luck in recent weeks - was fortunate to finish at all. "It's important to capitalise on those hard weekends such as this and I think that's really been a key strength of ours this year", he added.

Lewis Hamilton is in dreamland after winning in Hungary to take a major psychological step towards sealing a fifth Formula One world championship.
Hamilton's win should, however, come with a warning: no driver since Michael Schumacher in 2004 has triumphed here in Hungary and gone on to take the championship. After the Hungarian Grand Prix, Hamilton is leading by 213 points, followed by Vettel (189 points) and Raikonnnen (146 points).
Vettel hopes points will flow freely, once glitches are ironed out. It was the day of Hamilton as the British driver crossed chequered flag first in ease while determined Vettel crossed the line in P2 after a fierce battle with Bottas and Raikkonen. "We've had an unbelievable job by the team and we came here with Ferrari pushing".

With just five laps remaining, Vettel pulled off a move on Bottas, passing him on the outside heading to Turn 2. When I was hit, from behind, I was not sure what had happened. "I think he would have made it to Lewis and the outcome could have been a different one", he said. "I was lucky the auto was not broken and I could carry on".
"The second half is always exciting and intense", said Hamilton.
Asked how demanding that was, Raikkonen said: "It wasn't really". "Apart from that, it wasn't an issue".
For Hamilton, it was a dream scenario and, with 10 laps to go, he was 18 seconds clear of the unyielding Bottas, who had both Ferraris bottled up behind him, within a second, until Vettel lunged by with five laps to go. Today's been an emotional rollercoaster in tricky conditions and so happy with the final result. We expected damage limitation, rather than taking the points. But he comfortably held position while Vettel jumped ahead of Raikkonen and nearly caught Bottas.
The victory ensured that Hamilton comfortably extended his championship lead. He came out second behind Vettel - the only time Hamilton did not lead.
After looking in control in second place, a masterclass in defensive driving, it all went wrong for Bottas when he was clipped by Sebastian Vettel causing serious damage to his front wing.
But it was another poor stop from Ferrari, whose mechanics struggled to fit the front left tire.
Bottas put his prang with Vettel down to a racing incident and felt there was little he could have done to avoid the crash with Ricciardo.
Vettel, though, has a different view on things as while he feels he could have caught Hamilton, he concedes that passing the Brit would have been a great deal more hard.
