Getting into Formula 1 is one thing, but staying in the sport requires a dog-eat-dog mentality. Everyone on the grid is a rival, especially one’s teammate. However, ever so often we come across examples of wholesome moments in the sport. At the Dutch GP, George Russell and Daniel Ricciardo are responsible for the latest incident.
Russell’s choice for the Dutch GP was a shout-out to the unlikeliest friendships on the grid. The Mercedes man rocked the latest RIC3 merchandise, which is the name of Daniel Ricciardo’s clothing brand as he made his way to the paddock.
However, this isn’t the first time the Mercedes man has worn Daniel Ricciardo merch. In Turkey, back in 2020, Russell wore Ricciardo’s cap and even called himself, “Proud @danielricciardo ambassador.”
