World News – AU – Ricciardo has an artist working on tattoo designs for Abiteboul


Earlier this year Ricciardo and Abiteboul bet that if the Australian finished on the Formula 1 podium this season, then the pair of them would have matching tattoos

The deal was that if Abiteboul could choose the location and size of the tattoo, Ricciardo would get a free design call

With Ricciardo having finished third in the recent Eifel Grand Prix, he reflected on how best to mix a design that incorporates something about him and the place of success

Speaking ahead of this weekend’s Portuguese GP, Ricciardo said work is underway to finalize the tattoo, hoping it can be done before the final triple header of the F1 season

“An artist is currently working on two designs, so we are getting closer,” said Ricciardo “I have to talk to Cyril about the logistics, but I hope that before Bahrain, the last triple header, we find a window to do it

Ricciardo’s bet with Abiteboul was a good comeback to the season and shows how the relationship between the driver and the team has not been affected by the Australian’s decision to leave for McLaren in 2021

Although Ricciardo says he has no regrets about his move, he admits it would actually be a good thing in the end if he isn’t totally happy to be going out

“I want that sad feeling to go away,” he says “When I announced my move to McLaren, I didn’t want the next six months to be painful or uncomfortable six months and, as you have noticed, it was not like that at all, it was really good

« I think both sides attacked him with a lot of maturity and as you can see now there is a lot of trust so the relationship has been cool

« I have never seen someone so excited about getting a tattoo, not only about getting a tattoo, but now knowing that they will have one This actually has been fun and I want to leave this team with everyone happy, happy and satisfied, with the feeling that we had two solid years «
