(Motorsport-Entire.com) – “640 really strange things happen” said Daniel Ricciardo after the race in Imola. Because although Lewis Hamilton emphasized some time ago that he would never drink from Daniel Ricciardo’s shoe, he suddenly did so voluntarily during the race in Emilia-Romagna. Hamilton asked the Australian for his shoe, to celebrate the famous “Shoey” .
To celebrate his very first “shoey”, Ricciardo made the seven-time world champion a special gift afterwards: “I signed the shoe Lewis drank from and him at the next race “, he reveals in the podcast ‘In The Like a flash Lane’ .
“He’s certainly got something more significant than seven world championship titles,” jokes the outgoing Renault driver about his present.
But actually the Australian himself makes used to be with the shoes after drinking champagne from them? Simple answer: “I’ll air them out.”
