A week ago, the final of the Eurocup, where Italy beat England in the penalty shootout. However, the Formula 1 echoed an unfortunate event after the match. Lando norris was withdrawing from the stadium of Wembley after the match, but some English fans assaulted him and stole an expensive watch, valued at almost 50 thousand pounds.
The Briton was quite shocked by the assault suffered after the game. However, he did not want to lose this weekend’s race, at the Silverstone circuit. “I’m going to do my best,” he said before reaching the Grand Prix of Great Britain. The event suffered at Wembley hit him a lot and it was noticeable in the mood of the pilot of Mclaren.
Daniel Ricciardo, Norris’s teammate at McLaren, is one of the most sympathetic characters in the paddock and is usually the one who makes the heaviest and funniest jokes in Formula 1. However, this Saturday the Australian went out of line, joking with him theft that Norris suffered in the final of the European Championship.
Ricciardo was giving an interview with his teammate. The Briton was recounting what happened at Wembley Stadium, and Ricciardo had no better idea than to “steal” the watch his teammate was wearing, simulating what happened to him. This did not sit well with Norris, who was not amused by the joke.
The Australian quickly realized the mistake he had made in making the joke, and patted Norris on the back apologetically. Norris declined to comment, but many fans were outraged by the Australian’s actions. While it was a joke, many did not take Ricciardo’s sour humor well.
