Nope! Bottas hilariously rejects Ricciardo's 'Shoey'

accreditation

Austria - Would you drink from a race drivers shoe? Well neither would Mercedes' Valterri Bottas as he rejects Daniel Ricciardo's 'shoey' ritual at the 2017 Austrian GP.

Bottas has taken a comfortable victory at the 2017 Austrian GP after starting the race in pole position.

Sebastian Vettel held on to second place to extend his World Championship lead as Daniel Ricciardo grabbed the final podium spot.

After the race, Ricciardo cheekily tried to get Bottas to perform a 'shoey' but was rejected by the Mercedes driver.

At the 2017 Arzebaijan GP, Ricciardo convinced teenager Lance Stroll to drink his shoe. Check out his  reaction below: 

Racers are not the only ones targeted by Ricciardo to do the shoey, as earlier this year, he managed to get English acting legend Patrick Stewart to do the shoey with him at the Canadian Grand Prix.
