A hilarious moment between Daniel Ricciardo and his team has been captured on Renault's radio during the Belgian Grand Prix.
The Aussie Formula One driver was heard screaming "I f***ing sent that last lap" to his team after becoming the first Renault driver in over 10 years to claim the fastest lap time of the race.
While Mercedes star Lewis Hamilton took all the plaudits for yet another first-place finish to extend his lead at the summit of the F1 drivers' championship, it was Ricciardo who supplied viewers a humorous moment to remember.

Ricciardo's slick performance behind the wheel helped him match his best result for the season as he finished in fourth-place - but it was his reaction to his fastest lap time which really caught everyone's attention.
After his team had told him of his accomplishment, the Aussie couldn't contain his excitement.
"Ha ha ha, I was f***ing pushing," he said down the team radio.
"I f***ing sent that last lap."
His quick lap time - the fastest on the day at Spa-Francorchamps - earned Ricciardo an extra championship point which now ties him up with Sergio Perez in eighth place on the F1 standings.
"What a race and definitely an excellent result for the team. We had a lot of pace today and fourth is a strong result," Ricciardo said after the event.
"It's been a while since I've had the fastest lap of the race, so that was also nice. My engineer told me what the current fastest was and I thought 'I got this'!
"It was a proper big lap - I used all the track and went for it. Maybe it was better than my qualifying lap yesterday!"
