Verstappen and Ricciardo made it a brilliant weekend for Red Bull in Malaysia, finishing first and third respectively.

BRILLIANT DRIVE: How Ricciardo 'broke Vettel's spirit' in Malaysia

And the Aussie driver was in a jovial mood in the post-race press conference, trolling his teammate while he was trying to answer some questions from the media.

Ricciardo firstly decided to poor some water over Verstappen's head mid-question, before later putting his finger next to the Belgian driver's head while he was talking.

As you can see in the video above, a media member tries to get Ricciardo to stop, but there's no stopping the cheeky Aussie.

His efforts in Malaysia come after he had rivals Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas cracking up after 'letting rip' in a press conference after the Singapore Grand Prix.

Ricciardo's podium finish in Malaysia was his eighth in a season highlighted by his victory in Azerbaijan.

"I enjoyed the race today. At the beginning I had hoped I could finish second but then after the pit stop it was just about holding on to third," he said.

"This double podium is a very positive result for us.

"Obviously Max got the big one and drove well so congrats to him for the win; he drove strong all weekend."

Despite being unable to seal an eighth win of the season, second-placed Lewis Hamilton still opened up his gap at the top of the championship over nearest rival Sebastian Vettel, who couldn't haul in Ricciardo and had to settle for fourth.
