Fernando Alonso has hailed the “amazing” job being done this year by Daniel Ricciardo.

At Silverstone, Spaniard Alonso’s wheel-to-wheel duel with world champion Sebastian Vettel was littered with radio complaints about one another’s driving.

But after Hockenheim, where the Ferrari driver had a similarly thrilling battle with Vettel’s new teammate Ricciardo, Alonso had nothing but praise for the Australian.

Lewis Hamilton won a crash-hit British Grand Prix on Sunday to cut Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg’s lead in the drivers’ championship from 29 points to just four after the German had his first non-finish of the season.

Hamilton, the 2008 champion, started sixth on the grid. The British driver leapt to fourth on the opening lap before it was red-flagged, and suspended for an hour, following a crash involving 2007 champion Kimi Raikkonen of Ferrari and Felipe Massa of Williams.

Red Bull’s hopes for a triumph on its home circuit were dampened Friday as Mercedes regained its dominance in Formula One, clearly setting the pace on the opening day of practice for the Austrian Grand Prix.

With Daniel Ricciardo’s maiden victory in Canada two weeks ago, Red Bull ended a six-race winning streak by Mercedes but the Australian driver and his teammate Sebastian Vettel did not come close to matching their rival’s speed on the Red Bull Ring.

Lewis Hamilton beat teammate Nico Rosberg to the fastest time in the second practice. Hamilton completed his best lap on the 4.3-kilometer (2.7-mile) track in 1 minute, 9.542 seconds, topping Rosberg by 0.377. Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso was almost a second off the lead in third.
