Who knew facial hair could be so funny?
Daniel Ricciardo reduced fellow F1 driver Lando Norris to tears in a press conference ahead of the British Grand Prix – but it was all for the right and somewhat childish reasons.
Sat either side of defending champion Lewis Hamilton, Ricciardo and Norris were clearly in the mood for some fun, so as they discussed facial hair – specifically Hamilton’s or his lack of.
Norris: “Maybe it’s the moustache?”
Hamilton: “The moustache? What the fact I cant really grow much?
Norris: “Well I can’t do much either, Mansell’s one was all right.”
As Hamilton continued to discuss Nigerl Mansell’s face fuzz, Ricciardo leaned forward and whispered to Norris “have you got pubes yet?”
At this point Hamilton moves on to discussing Mansell’s eyebrows while the clowns either side of him break down in hysterics.
It’s at this moment Hamilton and the rest of the room realises they have missed the joke.
“He’s crying,” Ricciardo squeals as Norris wipes his eyes and buries his head in his hands.
As the reporter attempts to continue the line of questioning both drivers laugh uncontrollably with a mediator assuring the media it was nothing to do with them but that the joke was not appropriate to be shared.
“It’s nothing to do with your question don’t worry, it’s not suitable for you guys.”
“I didn’t think it was that funny, says Ricciardo.
