It's happened: Cyril Abiteboul gets inked!

After months of enduring suspense and anticipation, former Renault F1 boss Cyril Abiteboul has owned up to his bet with Daniel Ricciardo and gone under the needle and ink.

In 2020, Abiteboul and his former driver sealed a bet a bet by which the Frenchman would get a tattoo if or whenever Ricciardo delivered a top-three finish to Renault.

That day of reckoning happened at the Eifel Grand Prix at the Nürburgring on October 11 when the Aussie finished third behind Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen.

Earlier this year, Ricciardo – who had switched from Renault to McLaren – was asked if the wager was still valid.

Indeed it was and the Honey Badger had every intent of seeing Abiteboul uphold his side of the bargain.

And on Monday, the 2021 Italian Grand Prix winner posted on Instagram a picture of Abiteboul getting inked.

"A bet’s a bet. Video Wednesday," wrote Ricciardo.

We thus patiently wait.
