  Reporter forced to abandon NRL Grand Final coverage Alice Monfries quickly cut away from her segment at Panthers HQ in Sydney's west just hours before the game after she was inundated by enthusiastic fans. 'I don't even know if you can hear me right now, but they are feeling very confident,' she said. In the background, one fan performed a 'shoey' for the 6pm news bulletin - which entails drinking alcohol directly from a shoe.  'In fact, they say the rain is a good omen — 17 years ago they last took the trophy home in a wet Grand Final,' she said.

At the Nürburgring, Daniel Ricciardo forgot about it , but on his second podium for Renault 2020 in Imola he continued an old tradition: he drank the champagne in proper style from his shoe. Race winner Lewis Hamilton also asked the Australian for a "Shoey", but is that even allowed in times of Corona?

FIA race director Michael Masi had to answer this unusual question after the race in Emilia-Romagna. Has the "Shoey" violated the strict security requirements of the Corona Protocol? "I have to say that I have not studied or considered drinking a 'Shoey' as it is commonly known in detail."

Ricciardo had threatened a podium for a long time this season before finishing third at the “It’s pretty surreal actually . Obviously the first one and to get two now in such close proximity is There was time for a shoey on the podium this weekend and Lewis Hamilton even joined in, as Ricciardo ’s result

Lewis Hamilton has won the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix from Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas and Australia's Daniel Ricciardo in a race that came to life in the closing stages. Key points: Daniel Ricciardo got his second podium in three races and shared a shoey with race winner Lewis Hamilton .

There is no rule in the strict regulations that prohibits sharing a shoe in order to drink from it. This means that Ricciardo and Hamilton will not be punished. In the past few months, there have been repeated warnings.

people in the paddock had not or only insufficiently adhered to the guidelines. The FIA ​​had set this before the start in order to be able to carry out a season despite the pandemic. Among other things, the podium ceremony was also clearly regulated.

Nevertheless, this time Ricciardo insisted on taking a sip from his shoe. As early as 2016, he introduced the tradition, so loved by fans, to the race in Germany, and since then he has achieved 18 additional podium places.

However, the Australian seemed so surprised by his third place at the Nürburgring that after two years of abstinence he completely forgot about the "Shoey" in the Eifel. But that shouldn't happen to him a second time: "I took off my right shoe, poured it and wanted to toast the mechanics."

Set-up changes the key to success for Lewis Hamilton in Portimao?

 Set-up changes the key to success for Lewis Hamilton in Portimao? Mercedes changed the set-up of the cars again on Saturday's Formula 1 race weekend in Portimao - this was an important step for Lewis Hamilton Last Sunday, Lewis Hamilton secured his 92nd career victory in Portimao the top of the eternal table and catapulted before Michael Schumacher. In the race, the Brit overtook his Mercedes team-mate Valtteri Bottas and drove to victory after a dominant performance. A last minute set-up change played an important role in this.

That means that, legally , Daniel Ricciardo is confirmed an artist. They neither invented it, actively promoted it, modified it, or did literally any fucking thing whatsoever to show ownership of the Shoey and yet somehow they gain the legal rights over its use on flasks, glasses, bottles, mugs, sculptures

Lewis Hamilton says his latest and 93rd win, which secured Mercedes a 1-2 and record seventh-straight constructors title, boiled down to a considered strategic The only sour note was the ‘ shoey ’ he performed on the podium with P3 finisher Dainel Ricciardo “[It tasted like] toe jam,” said Hamilton .

Then the surprising turnaround: "Mister Hamilton asked me to take off my left shoe too. He actually drank from my shoe. We did that together and it was majestic," smiles Ricciardo.

What particularly amuses him about it: "The fun fact is that I think three years ago he said on the podium that he would never drink out of my shoe. In 2020 really strange things will happen." Ricciardo had secretly hoped that one day he would get Hamilton.

"I haven't forgotten that, it makes me very happy." The champagne is also cooler these days, Ricciardo notes, possibly due to the colder conditions in autumn. "That makes the 'Shoey-Experience' a little more bearable."

World Champion Hamilton thinks a little differently about it in retrospect: "It definitely didn't taste great. I didn't really like champagne before that, but it definitely tasted worse," reveals the Mercedes driver.

Already while swallowing his Ricciardo shoe he made a face on the podium. “But the positive thing is that Daniel's mother thinks I'm a good athlete, for which I am grateful. I think Daniel meant that I once said that I would never do it. So the lesson from this is: never say never . "
