Formula 1 world champion Lewis Hamilton accompanied Australian driver Daniel Ricciardo to his usual “Shoey” party – but after a sip he winced in disgust.
31-year-old Ricciardo forgot to complete his legendary podium, drinking champagne from his shoe after finishing third in the Eifel Grand Prix in Germany last month.
After finishing third again at the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix in Italy, the Larrikin athlete remembered his famous celebration.
When the Perth-born driver poured the Moet champagne into his shoe, Hamilton, who graduated first, decided to take part in the post-race hijinks.

Lewis Hamilton spilled champagne from his shoe on third-placed Australian Renault driver Daniel Ricciardo on Sunday after the Perth-born driver forgot to do a “shoey” after last month’s Grand Prix
Hamilton winced in disgust as he joined Ricciardo in his podium tradition on Sunday. He later said the beverage taste was like “toe jam”.
Not only did Hamilton decide to attend the bizarre celebration, but he even used Ricciardo’s other shoe instead of his own.
Ricciardo had a big smile on his face as he drank from his shoe, but the great British racing driver seemed to have a very different experience as he peeled away at the unconventional drink.
The Australian driver became known for his funny, carefree demeanor on the F1 Tour and played a “Shoey” for the first time when he was on the podium in 2016.
Ricciardo said he was shocked. Hamilton is eager to try the classic Australian right of passage, as he had previously rejected a “Shoey” offer on the podium.
“I was just about to have a nice fresh drink and heard Lewis say,” Take off your other shoe, “the 31-year-old later told Sky Sports in the paddock.
“And I was like ‘no’ because three years ago on the podium he said,“ I’ll never drink it, you can offer it to me, you can force me, I will never do it. “
The Australian rider first rode a ‘shoe’ in 2016 when he stood on the podium and has made it his usual tradition in recent years
But Hamilton eventually convinced his rival to hand over the shoes, but soon regretted asking for them, describing the taste of his drink as “toe jam”.
“I don’t like champagne as it is, but it definitely tasted worse,” he said.
Hamilton returned from third place at the end of the first lap, leading Finnish team-mate Valtteri Bottas in a Mercedes one-two on the Italian circuit.
Ricciardo finished third for Renault, his second podium of the season for a French team that is now third, and Russian Daniil Kvyat fourth for AlphaTauri.
The Briton took over the checkered flag 5.783 seconds ahead of Pole Bottas.
Hamilton also picked up a bonus point for the fastest lap to extend his lead to a whopping 85 points, with four races left.
