Sir Patrick Stewart Follows Daniel Ricciardo’s Lead, Does ‘Shoey’ In Canada

Daniel Ricciardo usually has to persuade people to partake in his unique podium celebration, but that wasn’t the case after the Formula One Canadian Grand Prix.

Ricciardo picked up his 21st career podium with his P3 finish in Montreal, so he celebrated with a “shoey,” the Aussie celebration he introduced to F1 last year. He had to top off his boot again afterward, as Sir Patrick Stewart, who was conducting the podium interviews, wanted to try.

Ricciardo has persuaded everybody from former F1 driver Mark Webber, to actor Gerard Butler to drink from his shoe, though usually the crowd helps him. Stewart, however, needed no convincing.

And it didn’t take Ricciardo’s professional Twitter account long to make an “X-Men” joke.

Red Bull Racing made light of the situation, too, and apparently doesn’t share Ricciardo and Stewart’s love of warm sweat and champagne.

It’s hardly surprising that Stewart has a fun-loving side, considering he’s the voice of Poop in “The Emoji Movie.”
