Surf’s up, brah.
Aussie F1 Daniel Ricciardo pulled off what commentator Martin Brundle called ‘the pass of the year’ in the Italian Grand Prix, nuzzling past Valtteri Bottas on a tight corner on lap 47. The reasonably daring manoeuvre eased him into fifth place, and gave him more than enough time to celebrate his victory with a cheeky little shaka.

Ricciardo, who races with Red Bull, conceded in a postgame interview that he knew he had little chance against his contenders with Ferrari and Mercedes – so fifth place was what he jostling for.

Bottas, to his credit, allowed Riccciardo to slide past him without providing too much trouble – which could be dangerous as hell considering the riskiness of the move. Shakaaaaas.
