Renault Team Leader Cyril Abiteboul and Daniel Riccardo have made a wager that Abiteboul will get a tattoo if the Australian rider takes the podium this season. At the Nurburgring, Daniel finished third, and Cyril is ready to fulfill the conditions of the dispute.
Cyril Abiteboul: “Daniel chooses the tattoo design, and I choose the place of application and size, since size matters. And since the choice of the size is mine, I am ready to agree to almost any drawing.
In fact, tattoos are not at all my style, which is why I agreed to the bet. I remember an evening at Silverstone last year. Daniel showed me his new tattoo, and I asked him: “How did you decide on such a drawing?” He replied that he was passing by a tattoo parlor, decided to go in and do something.
At that moment I thought to myself: “Okay,” and said aloud to Daniel: “If you go up to the podium, I will also get myself a tattoo.” By the time I said this, I had already had a few beers. I am a man of my word and I will keep my promise. I just need a little time to decide on the size and location. “
After the finish of the race, Daniel already hinted what the tattoo might be: “Cyril Abitebul and I really had an agreement that if I go up to the podium, he will get a tattoo of my choice. So all this is ahead.
But we have to think about what it will be: probably, the tattoo should be somehow connected with me, but at the same time there should be some German flavor, because we went to the podium in Germany! “
