Under-fire Daniel Ricciardo reveals why he wrote ‘f*** ’em all’ message on his helmet for the Monaco Grand Prix – and says it’s not the first time he’s worn the obscene message

Aussie F1 driver Daniel Ricciardo has explained the obscene message fans spotted on his racing helmet at the Monaco GP2 wasn’t directed at any person or team, but was a way for him to ‘pump himself up’. ‘I put it on my [Red Bull Racing] helmet in 2018 as well,’ he told Fox Sports. ‘I think as well, as a driver, you put the helmet on and that’s also very significant of flipping the switch. It’s one of the last things I’ll see when I put the helmet on.’. The ‘Honey Badger’, another phrase usually seen on his helmet, has race finishes of 14, 6, 18, 13, 12, 13 and a DNF in 2022 on the back of last year, when he won a race but finished in a disappointing 8th on just 115 points in the driver’s championship.
