When you look back over Daniel’s 99 races with the team it’s almost impossible to pick out the best moments from a stint that has yielded seven wins, 29 podiums and a whopping 944 points.
On the racing side you could choose his brilliant last-gasp leap to his maiden F1 win, passing Sergio Pérez and Nico Rosberg in the last few laps to win the 2014 Canadian Grand Prix. Or perhaps you’d go for his amazing charge through the field from P17 on lap six to win the 2017 Azerbaijan Grand Prix. Or maybe you’d opt for his brilliant, battling drive to victory in Monaco this year.
It could even be the lighter side of Daniel that appeals – the shoeys, his inability to refrain from cracking jokes in deadly serious press conferences, or his attempt to haul a caravan around the Red Bull Ring behind an Aston Martin at full tilt.
In truth there have been as many great Daniel moments as there have been races, and that’s why when it comes to picking the most memorable, we don’t even know where to begin.
So we’re going to make you do it for us. We want you to choose your top Honey Badger highlights. It could be a race, an overtaking move, a wise crack, or even a personal memory of how Daniel touched you (keep it clean now!) and what he means to you, as a racer, as a personality, and as an all-round top bloke.
We would like you to send us your stand out moments on our social media channels using #CheersDan or send them via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We need your homages to the Honey Badger! We’ll take our favourites and put some of your written words into our farewell film for Daniel and share them with the team and the man himself in the garage during our season finale and goodbye race in Abu Dhabi.
So what are you waiting for, get sharing with us now using #CheersDan!
