Ricciardo 'lets rip' in smelly post-race interview

Daniel Ricciardo had his F1 rivals in stitches after the Singapore Grand Prix with some very questionable antics in the post-race press conference.

As Valtteri Bottas was attempting to answer a question from the media, Ricciardo 'let rip' so to speak, sending Bottas into hysterics.

Lewis Hamilton also couldn't contain his laughter, especially with Ricciardo grinning from ear to ear right next to him.

“Try to keep it together now that this mate next to me just farted," Bottas said as he struggled to find some fresh air.

Ricciardo was clearly in a jovial mood after again ending up on the podium in Singapore.

The Aussie's second-place finish was his fourth podium there in a row, falling to championship leader Hamilton, with Bottas third.

Ricciardo qualified third ahead of fifth-starter Hamilton, who took the lead on the opening lap when pole-sitter Sebastian Vettel took out Max Verstappen and Kimi Raikkonen in a first corner crash.

Ricciardo vented his frustration on the podium after not having the race-day pace to match Hamilton.

"I can't win the bloody thing. I'm trying, I'm trying," Ricciardo lamented.

"Today we didn't have the Friday pace we showed in practice and I'm a little bit disappointed to miss out on a win but have to be happy to get another podium.

"We struggled to look after the tyres and it felt like when I could punch out a good lap time, I couldn't really maintain it, whereas Lewis could answer and answer again.

"So it felt like every time we tried to match his pace it would take more out of (my) tyres."
