It may be premature to call the end of an era of Mercedes domination but Daniel Ricciardo's thrilling win for Red Bull in Shanghai Sunday marks a clear shift in the Formula One landscape.The sheer depth of talent and resources at Mercedes' disposal, and the fact that there are 18 races still to run in this grueling 21-round season, means it is too early to trumpet a changing of the guard.Red Bull's success in the race, following on from two Ferrari victories, emphasized that this will be more than just a two-team battle.While Vettel had looked good for a hat-trick of wins Sunday morning, Ricciardo cashed in on a safety car period that put Red Bull in the driving seat.
