Daniel Ricciardo’s tattoo is a remembrance of a bet he lost at the German Grand Prix.
After winning a wager between the two last year, Daniel Ricciardo isn’t going to let Cyril Abiteboul off the hook.
After losing a wager with Formula One driver Daniel Ricciardo almost a year ago, his former Renault manager Cyril Abiteboul has been reminded that he is still required to get his first ever tattoo.
Ricciardo, who now drives for McLaren, made the wager with his former Renault teammate while still working for Renault, and is determined to see that the Frenchman keeps his word.
The pair’s gamble included a tattoo, as Abiteboul guaranteed his former employee that if he helped the team achieve a podium finish, he would get tattooed.
As a result, Ricciardo finally won the wager last year, after finishing third behind Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen in the Eifel Grand Prix in Nurburg, Germany.
Despite winning the bet, Ricciardo’s previous boss has failed to honor the wager, despite the fact that the notion appeared to have gone out after Ricciardo’s move from Renault to McLaren.
The 32-year-old, on the other hand, is anxious to ensure the Frenchman gets the ink, revealing that contact was established between the two following his Italian Grand Prix victory last month.
“I received an incredible quantity of emails, WhatsApp messages, and everything, so I did see an email from him,” Ricciardo added. The subject of tattoos came up, so I’m still hopeful that we’ll be able to finish this before the end of the year.
“If it doesn’t happen, it’ll inevitably drag on and become old news, so I’m determined to make it happen.”
Ricciardo and Abiteboul agreed that the driver may choose the design of his former employer’s body art, but Abiteboul could choose the size and placement of the tattoo.
Last year, the driver discussed the inking’s design concept, stating that he wanted a German motif to reflect Ricciardo’s podium finish in Germany.
“We’ll have to think about it now,” he said, “but it’ll probably be something to do with me, but with a German flavor.”
“Obviously, this is where we did it.” “Brinkwire Summary News” is a modest nod to something.
