If you watched last weekend’s British Grand Prix (and if you didn’t, where the hell were you?), you’ll have seen now five-time winner Lewis Hamilton indulge in an activity usually reserved for the world’s most famous rock stars: the humble crowd-surf.

As podium celebrations go, it’s pretty cool. And it made him late for the post-race press conference, which is cooler still. Admittedly his celebrations didn’t involve the podium per-say, but it nonetheless got us thinking: of the many F1 drivers who’ve won races, which one has the best podium celebration? Here are our favourites. Tell us yours in the comments.

Daniel Ricciardo

Everyone loves Daniel Ricciardo. Hard not to. Same goes for his hilarious/disgusting/crowd-pleasing trademark. Old F1 drivers of the world: if you’re asked to do the podium interviews for a race Danny Ric has even the slightest chance of winning, just say no. He’ll make you do a shoey.

Rubens Barrichello

Just why Barichello felt compelled to feign surprise everytime he stepped onto a podium, we have no idea. Funny, though.

Mark Webber

Mark Webber is already a very tall man. But whenever he won, he felt compelled to jump high above everyone’s heads. Is being a giant not enough, Mark?

Michael Schumacher

Another jumper. Michael spent so much time on the podium, we’re surprised he didn’t have calves the circumference of a redwood.

Kimi Räikkönen

He gets a lot of stick for looking miserable, even when he does pretty well, but has anyone even considered the fact that maybe Kimi can’t smile? Who knows.
