The last spot on the podium for the Formula One Mexican Grand Prix must be a revolving door instead of the usual step. First, Red Bull driver Max Verstappen lost third place for taking a shortcut to keep his position, giving the podium spot to Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel. Hilariously, Vettel later lost third place…
Actor Gerard Butler handled the post-race interviews for the Formula One United States Grand Prix, and of course, Red Bull driver and third-place finisher Daniel Ricciardo handed him a shoe to toast.

Australia has given the world many wonderful gifts over the years. Kangaroos. Bathurst. And now, the “shoey” toast where you drink out of a shoe.

What is Daniel Ricciardo calling bullshit on?
Everyone’s favorite ‘Strayan F1-driving honey badger Daniel Ricciardo offered a surprise explanation for how Australians can stomach beer-funk as a condiment: he drank out of his friggin’ shoe on the podium.

Every year, the Formula One Austrian Grand Prix seems to be Red Bull’s opportunity to remind the world that their eXtrEme garbage beverage of choice comes from the central European nation, and to celebrate that heritage. Really, though, look at these matching lederhosen race suits. That’s too much, you guys.
Daniel Ricciardo was doing so well at the Monaco Grand Prix. He claimed Red Bull’s first pole position since 2013, and his first at Monaco.
