31 Oct 2016, 08:02 IST

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo was promoted to third place in the Mexican Grand Prix on Sunday after stewards imposed a 10 second penalty on Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel, demoting the German to fifth.

The sanction for erratic or dangerous driving also meant that Red Bull's Max Verstappen, who finished third on the track but was demoted to fifth after the race, moved back up to fourth.

The race was won by Mercedes' triple world champion Lewis Hamilton, ahead of German team mate and championship leader Nico Rosberg.
