Ricciardo speaks to Sky F1 about a brilliant drive at the Eifel GP, his emotions ahead of leaving Renault, and a 'forgotten' shooey...

Daniel Ricciardo was delighted to finally end his and Renault's podium wait after a brilliant drive at the Eifel GP - and even found time to perform a customary shooey despite initially forgetting his famous celebration!

Ricciardo hadn't finished on the podium since his last Red Bull victory in Monaco in 2018, while Renault's wait had lasted since 2011, but he was a superb third for the improving French outfit in Sunday's Nurburgring race.

"To be honest, it feels like the first podium [Ricciardo's first was in 2014] all over again," admitted a beaming Ricciardo to Sky F1's Natalie Pinkham. "The feeling I have now is like that really happy shock

"It was pretty stressful. It's been two and a half years since I had a podium and it's really nice. When we signed on the dotted line for this Renault contract, it was to be up here and get a podium by Year Two and we've achieved that."

The in-form Ricciardo, who had been fourth three times in 2020 before the Eifel GP, added to Ted Kravitz during The Notebook: "In a way it was a long time coming because we've been knocking on the door the last few weekends. Now we've got it." กำถั่วออนไลน์

Ricciardo, up on the podium with Lewis Hamilton and former Red Bull team-mate Max Verstappen, has made a 'shooey' celebration - where he tips champagne into one of his racing shoes before drinking it - a highlight in recent years, but admitted he forgot all about it post-race.

"I'm literally going to go and do one now," he said to Ted. "I forgot all about it! Basically Max sprayed me and it was freezing... and it's 2020, you know. Normally there's fans yelling it, obviously there's not really anyone else other than the team under the podium and I feel like they kind of remind me. 2020 problems!
