Is there anyone funnier in Formula 1 than Daniel Ricciardo?

The Renault driver is on the constant lookout for a lighthearted moment, and he always seems to make his rivals crack with laughter.

Just ask Valtteri Bottas who, during the 2017 Singapore GP, felt the wrath of Ricciardo's... stench?

During the post-race interview, Bottas is asked to say a few words in his mother tongue. But just before that, Ricciardo asked for permission to let out gas, which, as can be expected, caught both Bottas and team mate Lewis Hamilton off guard.

Bottas really struggled to string a sentence together and by the time he could utter a word, he was red as a tomato.
