Since he first filled his boots with sparkling wine and glugged the fizzy, warm and admittedly pretty funky brew in celebration of his 13th career podium at the 2016, the Shoey has become Daniel's trademark tipple.
In the years since, the Honey Badger has sipped champagne from his shoe to mark wins in Malaysia, Azerbaijan, China and Monaco, and the word-famous celebration has appeared on the podiums of Belgium’s Spa-Francorchamps, Canada’s Circuit Gilles Villeneuve and at our home circuit, Austria’s Red Bull Ring among others.
Now, to help mark Daniel’s final race with the team and to toast his remarkable five-season stint with the Team and his decade as a Red Bull star, we invited you to send us videos of your own shoey salute.
We were looking for videos of the wildest, the weirdest and the most wonderful fan shoeys. And to get you bubbling with enthusiasm, we offered a very special prize for the best shoey of all – a pair of Daniel’s Abu Dhabi worn Puma race boots, signed by the Honey Badger himself.
Thank you to everyone for uploading your shoey videos using #CheersDan. One entry in particular caught ours and Daniel's eyes, for being one of the bravest shoeys we've ever seen. So congratulations to Ana Luiza Lobo Kalil.
