Daniel Riccardo has said his defeat in May's Monaco Grand Prix has made him a stronger driver.

After woes for both Mercedes drivers, the popular Australian triumphed in Malaysia, taking the fourth win of his career.

Although he admits missing out in Monaco was a setback, he insists it has made him stronger, culminating in a fourth career victory in Malaysia.

"After Monaco in particular was obviously mixed emotions. It was a hard one to take. I felt we’ve come through that, as a team we’ve learnt a lot," he said. "As a person, it made me a bit stronger. I think I’ve only got better since then."

He also spoke of his late friend Jules Bianchi who passed away last year after sustaining injuries in the 2014 Japanese Grand Prix.

"I want to dedicate this one to Jules, as well. I’ve been waiting for a victory and waiting to dedicate this to him," said the Red Bull driver. "My life definitely changed after that incident. I’m extremely grateful and appreciative of everything that I’ve got. I’ll dedicate this to him."
