Daniel Ricciardo led a Red Bull one-two as a distraught Lewis Hamilton's hopes of regaining the world championship lead went up in smoke at a dramatic, action-packed Malaysian Grand Prix Sunday.Championship leader Nico Rosberg survived a first-bend spin involving Sebastian Vettel and a 10-second penalty to take third place and extend the gap over Mercedes teammate Hamilton to 23 points with just five races remaining.Ricciardo was then able to hold onto the lead comfortably till the end.Hamilton now has to pick himself up quickly ahead of next Sunday's Japanese Grand Prix.Hamilton's failure to finish and Rosberg's third place mean that Mercedes missed a chance to clinch the constructors' championship in Sepang.They have 553 points but Red Bull, who picked up 43 points for the one-two, have closed the gap to 194 points with a maximum of 215 up for grabs in the remaining five races of the season.
