Ricciardo: Abiteboul tattoo "going to happen" after Eifel GP podium

Ricciardo: Abiteboul Tattoo
Daniel Ricciardo says his Renault team boss Cyril Abiteboul will get a German tattoo after winning his podium at the Eifel Grand Prix.
The Australian bet on Abiteboul earlier this year that they will get matching tattoos if he manages to get on the podium for Renault this season.
As part of the deal, Abiteboul can choose the size of the tattoo and where it's in, while Ricciardo has sole say in the design.
After finishing third at the Nürburgring on Sunday, Ricciardo said he'll do something now that has to do with where they made the first podium together.
"It's real. It's going to happen," Ricciardo said. "We have to think a little now, but it probably has something to do with me, but I think with a German flair.
"This is obviously where we did it. A little tip for something traditional in Germany too."
Ricciardo's podium is Renault's first since returning to F1 as a works team in 2016.
It also ends a long podium drought for Ricciardo that dates back to his victory at the 2018 Monaco Grand Prix with Red Bull.

After sharing the festivities with his team at Parc Ferme, Ricciardo said that finishing top 3 felt like a whole new experience.
"Yeah, it's been a while," he said. “And actually, to be honest, it feels like the first podium again. I think it's been two and a half years or so, and yeah, the feeling, it's really nice, it's fresh.
"I'm so, so happy and of course to see everyone, we've all waited a long time for this. So, yes, I think everyone will soak it up."
Ricciardo's podium ended the battle for third place in the Constructors' Championship, a hotly contested French automaker McLaren and Racing Point.
After a tough afternoon for McLaren, Racing Point is now third with 120 points, McLaren with 116 points and Renault just two points further.
