Ricciardo’s emotional radio message

Published by Cyber Flows on

Daniel Ricciardo secured Renault’s first podium since the French manufacturer returned in 2016 and his first since he left Red Bull in 2018. He held off Sergio Perez in the closing stages of the race and was helped by a late Safety Car that allowed all cars to pit for fresh tyres.

As he shared the celebrations with his team in parc ferme afterwards, Ricciardo said the top three finish felt like an all-new experience.

“Yes, it’s been a while,” he said. “And actually, to be honest, it feels like the first podium all over again. I think it’s been two and a half years or something, and yeah the feeling, it’s really nice, it’s fresh.

“I’m so, so happy and obviously to see everyone as well: we’ve all waited a long time for this. So, yeah, I think everyone’s going to soak it up.”
