The result was made possible by a 53-lap mammoth start by Ocon on medium-weight tires.

“In the beginning it was very, very difficult to start with the media,” said Ocon. “The softs had a big advantage, so I lost a lot of positions.

“But I stayed calm, stayed calm and we decided to carry on with the team. The more we went, the better it was, that was very, very good. ”

Speaking of beating Ricciardo, he said, “It’s obviously good.

“I’m glad to be in front of him. I’m getting closer and closer to it and it feels great lately. ”

Ricciardo had to pit way earlier than Ocon and only drove 15 laps on the soft tire before his stop for media put him in 19th place.

He made up 10 positions for the rest of the race but ended up not being as happy as Ocon on the middle tire.

“It was hard. I don’t think I had the pace today, ”he said Sky Sports.

“The soft (tire), which was gutted quite early, on the left front was very grainy and I was struggling with this first stint.

“So I was a bit helpless with this one and we jumped on the media, but then the medium that I struggled with just to keep the temperature in the tire.

“I’ve always been on the verge of temperature trying to push a little harder to raise the temperature and then you’re making a mistake because the handle isn’t there.”

Ricciardo still dominates Ocon in the drivers’ standings – he is in fourth place with 80 points, while the Frenchman is in twelfth place with 40.

The next race will take place on November 1st in Imola.
