Abiteboul's tattoo torment: the video!


As Daniel Riccardo revealed last week, Cyril Abiteboul has held up his end of the bargain and owned up to the bet he made last year with the Aussie.

The former Renault F1 boss had challenged his driver to snatch his first podium with the French outfit and committed to getting a tattoo if Ricciardo achieved the feat.

And when the now McLaren driver crossed the finish line P3 at the Eifel Grand Prix, a blend of joy and anguish seized Abiteboul.

After living on tenterhooks for over a year in fear of the needle and ink, Abietboul was finally put out of his misery last week.

Ricciardo was obviously all too keen to be on hand to witness and support his former boss' ordeal, and to document the memorable moment.

"It might have been a year, but it was definitely worth the wait," said the Honey Bdger.

Check out the video of Abiteboul's tattoo torment and especially the marked-for-life emblem.
