Renault driver Daniel Ricciardo loves a practical joke and play pranks on fellow drivers. This time, during the British Grand Prix weekend, the unfortunate victim was McLaren driver Carlos Sainz Jr. The Spaniard was giving an interview with Spanish broadcaster Movistar when the incident occurred.
Daniel Ricciardo ducked underneath the view of the camera and sneaked by. Then he proceeded to whack Carlos Sainz in the groin, to the latter’s discomfort and the Australian bolted. The Spaniard then proceeded to chase Ricciardo to get his revenge by literally kicking Ricciardo’s ass and then going back to the interview.

In all honesty, the antics of Ricciardo and Sainz’ teammate, Lando Norris is a breath of fresh air. Norris even has a fair social media presence as he is an avid gamer and streams on Twitch.
