Daniel Ricciardo made his 100th Grand Prix start at Sunday’s German Grand Prix, so when he made it on the podium he celebrated in a unique way.
Rather than drinking the champagne straight out of the bottle like most drivers, Ricciardo chose to fill his racing boot.
The 27-year-old told NBC Sports the celebration, known in Australia as a “shoey,” was something he was saving for his first win of the season. But he decided getting his second consecutive podium at his 100th Grand Prix was just as much cause for celebration.
This may be an Australian celebration, but it’s very fitting he did it in Germany as it’s so similar to Das Boot.
