Daniel Ricciardo says he has no regrets over his driving style as he collected his first podium position of the season at the Hungarian Grand Prix.

Ricciardo was involved in three separate collisions in the race, the first at the start, the second with Lewis Hamilton - for which the Briton was penalised - and lastly while contesting second place with Nico Rosberg.

Ricciardo and Rosberg made contact exiting the first corner and the Red Bull driver was forced to pit for a new front wing, ending his hopes of challenging Sebastian Vettel for victory.

Ricciardo also dropped behind Red Bull team-mate Daniil Kvyat and came home in third place.

"I knew I could have sat in third and accepted that but knowing that I had the pace – I had the Option, compared to Seb and Nico on the Prime – I had an opportunity to do something about it," he said.

"It was nearly like Déjà vu, nearly like the end of the race last year. Basically I’ve come third before, I thought ‘we have a chance to win,’ so I went for it.

"I guess it’s a bit of a shame how it ended up but at the same time I don’t regret anything I did on track today.

"I definitely left it all on there and I thought I drove with a heavy but a strong heart, and that makes me happy. Definitely no regrets."
