Daniel Ricciardo loses it at rogue photographers with explosive rant over team radio during F1 practice session: ‘I’m happy to hit one of them’

Daniel Ricciardo was left fuming at photographers during a practice session before the Italian GP, calling them ‘f***ing idiots’ after getting too close in a pit stop. The 33-year-old Aussie driver almost collected one on the photographers when he was pulling into the McLaren section of the pit lane, and he was not happy. ‘I’m happy to hit one of them,’ he said while waiting for his tyres to be changed. Ricciardo himself admitted to some confusion when he spoke to his race engineer after the top 10 shootout. Sitting 13th in the Drivers Standing, Ricciardo has finished in the points in just five of 15 races, and been nowhere near the top. He may not have a spot on the grid for 2023 yet, but there’s no way this ‘Honey Badger’ is giving up yet.
