accreditation

Suzuka - Red Bull driver Daniel Ricciardo is arguably the funniest driver in the world's elite form of motorsport. The Australian is famous for celebrating on the podium by drinking champagne out of his race boot! 

Rest assured there's always a twist when the 28 year old is around, the latest example was after Sunday's Japanese Grand Prix. Race winner Lewis Hamilton had his phone on the podium, presumably to take selfies, and somehow it got into the hands of Ricciardo.  

Ricciardo took a bunch of funny selfies and videos and posted it onto Hamilton's Instagram story. 

Hamilton finished ahead of the Max Verstappen and Ricciardo to move 59 points clear in the drivers world championship after closest rival Sebastian Vettel retired during the early stages of the race.
