Daniel Ricciardo Does A 'Shoey' To Celebrate His Podium Finish In The F1

Daniel Ricciardo Does A 'Shoey' To Celebrate His Podium Finish In The F1

Daniel Ricciardo, this is why we love you.

The Australian Formula One star ended his two-year podium drought at the Eifel Grand Prix after coming third at the Nurburgring over the weekend.

And how did he celebrate the achievement? Well, the only way a true Aussie should: With a classic 'shoey'.

Ricciardo became renowned among F1 fans for his customary shoey after every podium in his career.

But the 31-year-old last claimed a top three finish back in 2018 in Monaco, meaning his podium at the Eifel GP meant that little bit more to him.

Ricciardo took to social media in the wake of the race and posted a video captioned, "Better late than never. BOTTOMS UP."

In the clip, a clearly-excited Ricciardo pours champagne in his sweaty racing boot before skolling it.

"The shoe is off," he said while trying to pop the bottle.

Then, without hesitation, Ricciardo polished off the shoey with ease.

"Ahhh, mother's milk! Thank you to everyone," he said.

"The feeling I have now is like that really happy shock, I guess," Ricciardo said after the race.

"When I signed on the dotted line for this Renault contract it was to be up here and get a podium by year two.

"Obviously next year is another story, I'm moving on, but I think this really does cap a pretty cool story that we've had and shared for these two years. And the good news is it's not over yet."
