Abiteboul keeps promise with Ricciardo and gets tattoo

Abiteboul keeps promise with Ricciardo and gets tattoo

McLaren team boss Zak Brown got a tattoo earlier this year after Daniel Ricciardo's victory in Italy. Meanwhile, fans were still waiting for Cyril Abiteboul's tattoo and if Ricciardo's Instagram photo is to be believed, it's finally time.

Former Renault team boss Abiteboul had made a bet with the 32-year-old driver. If he achieved a podium for Renault, the Frenchman would get a tattoo. Ricciardo managed that podium finish on Sunday, October 11, 2020 and since then there had been little to no news about the former team boss' tattoo. The Australian had previously stated that it was difficult to organise due to the pandemic, but today it finally seems to be happening.

The McLaren driver had previously indicated that he was optimistic that it could happen before the end of the year. He wanted to avoid it becoming old news and so it was time to finally drag the Frenchman to a tattoo shop. We'll know more on Wednesday, since a video will be shared about the tattoo on that day.
