Daniel Ricciardo

FIA could ban the shoey on the podium too?

Mark Webber was smart, he threw away Ricciardo’s shoe from Malaysian GP podium

Daniel Ricciardo grabbed his first win of the year in a thrilling Malaysian Grand Prix. The Australian had a great result to win the race since 2014 Belgian Grand Prix.

After doing the now famous ‘shoey’ celebration on his 100th Grand Prix, and then again with Mark Webber on the podium in Belgium, Ricciardo claimed he’d only do it again when he got a race victory.

Following the Malaysian GP victory, he got his moment and went shoey mad, first drinking one himself before loading one up for Red Bull racing team principal Christian Horner, then team-mate Max Verstappen and finally Nico Rosberg who was a bit less excited about his swig.

Then former Red Bull F1 driver, fellow Australian and podium interview host Mark Webber comes up and he threw away Ricciardo’s shoe — the other podium victims need to learn from him. Given how much the FIA loves clamping down on everything that’s fun in F1, maybe they will ban the shoey on the podium too?

Webber was also cracking a joke during podium Q&A about one of Red Bull’s controversial calls from Malaysia in 2013.

“Ladies and gentleman, what a race! I thought they were going to have Multi 33 there at one point because it was tasty at the end. They’ve all earned their money today. It’s been a hot grand prix.“

Webber picks up Ricciardo’s shoe – And I’m not doing this! – Webber throws the shoe into the crowd. There it goes!
