What does Daniel Ricciardo credit for his first-ever pole position at the Formula One Monaco Grand Prix and Red Bull’s first pole since 2013? Balls. Big Australian balls, to be exact.



Asked if pole was more down to the new engine or ‘big Australian balls’ he smiled and said: “Big Australian balls!”

He went on to say: “I think I will probably sleep easier tonight. I think the whole week has been a lot of anticipation, a lot of excitement... Monaco has always been a good race for me in previous categories. Yeah, it’s a good day.”

Bless you, Australia. Bless you and your gargantuan huevos.
