You have never smiled as hard as Ricciardo smiled in Austria

Red Bull F1 star finished 3rd. But looked like he'd won... everything. Ever.

The radio intercom clicks on. Daniel Ricciardo - having finished third at last weekend’s Austrian Grand Prix at the Red Bull Ring - signifies his emotion upon finishing third, behind second-placed Sebastian Vettel, and race winner Valtteri Bottas.

“GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR”, the Aussie star fed through the comms. Yep, suffice to say, he was a very, very happy boy.

TG’s good friend had a storming race to finish third, holding off Lewis Hamilton to deny the Brit a podium finish, and ensuring he got another chance to do his now trademark ‘shoey’.

And Austria marked his fifth podium on the bounce, meaning he matched fellow Aussie F1 stars Sir Jack Brabham and Alan Jones in the history books.

So yeah, he might not have won, but he certainly enjoyed the race. You have never smiled as hard as Daniel Ricciardo smiled on Sunday.

Just look at him go!

[On a side note - it was an interesting race. Let us know your thoughts below, and while it’s still way too early to call the championship, Bottas’ victory makes it a three-way fight to the finish. Discuss…]
