Video of Ricciardo in Earnhardt's car during US GP

Finally the time has come: Daniel Ricciardo drove Dale Earnhardt's car. McLaren team boss Zak Brown and the Aussie had made an agreement that he could drive in it if he got on the podium for the British team. He did that in Monza.

At the Italian Grand Prix Ricciardo crossed the finish line first, followed by team mate Lando Norris. Because of this he could finally take place in Earnhardt's car which is part of Brown's private collection.

Special helmet as tribute

The Australian also has a special black helmet this weekend as a tribute to the NASCAR driver. The sponsors are in the same place and written in the same font as on Earnhardt's helmet.
