The Briton has succumbed to the Australian tradition.

This is called a “Shoey”. It’s when you drink out of your shoe, and it’s a mostly Australian practice made popular by Daniel Ricciardo. The aussie pilot indulges himself in each of his podiums, tasting champagne in this strange way. And this Sunday, he managed to convert Lewis Hamilton.

While he had sworn that he would never accept, the Briton broke down, on the podium of the Grand Prix of Emilia-Romagna. He even drank from one of Ricciardo’s shoes, who took care of the service. And obviously, Hamilton didn’t really like this way of celebrating his 93rd F1 victory.
