HOCKENHEIM, Germany - Fernando Alonso has hailed the "amazing" job being done this year by Daniel Ricciardo.

At Silverstone two weeks earlier Spaniard Alonso's wheel-to-wheel duel with 2013 Formula 1 champion Sebastian Vettel was littered with radio complaints about each other's driving.

Post-Hockenheim, where the Ferrari driver had a similarly thrilling battle with Vettel's new team mate Ricciardo, Alonso had nothing but praise for the young Australian.

NOTHING BUT PRAISE

Alonso hailed Ricciardo's driving, always with "great respect to the rules and to others".

The double F1 champion was quoted as saying by the Spanish sports daily Marca:"He is a surprise and doing amazing. I believe he is 7:3 in the first 10 races against Sebastian, which is something none of us expected.

"He is doing a great job, driving fantastically and, yes, fighting with intelligence."
