Two podiums in three races! Celebratory shoey returns for Ricciardo


The Aussie's stellar form continues.

Australia’s Daniel Ricciardo continued his stellar 2020 form at the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix, taking his second Formula 1® podium for Renault.

The result capped a successful weekend for the 31-year-old, who finished in third place on Sunday at F1®’s return to Imola.

Ricciardo, who started from fifth on the grid, benefitted from the retirement of Red Bull’s Max Verstappen and a subsequent strategy call that put him ahead of Sergio Perez (Racing Point).

He then kept Daniil Kvyat (AlphaTauri) at bay in the dying stages of the race, which was followed by a celebratory shoey on the rostrum.

“Two podiums in three races! I’m very happy and I didn’t forget to do the shoey this time around,” Ricciardo said.

“We were pretty settled in fifth but then Max triggered the Safety Car. It was the right thing to stay out, especially after Perez pitted.

“It is pretty difficult to overtake here and it was worth the risk today – it paid off.

“I’m super happy to come away from Imola with a great podium; big thanks for everyone at the team.”

The Emilia Romagna Grand Prix was won by Lewis Hamilton, followed by Valtteri Bottas – the pair sealing Mercedes’ seventh straight constructors’ championship.

F1® returns to racing in a fortnight’s time for the Turkish Grand Prix at Istanbul Park, scheduled for 13-15 November.
