The moment Duncraig Dan won his first race since Monaco 2018, setting the fastest lap on the last lap, and McLaren won their first race since Jenson Button at Brazil in 2012, complete with Lando Norris bringing up their first 1-2 finish since Hamilton and Button at Canada in 2010:

Still, I wonder what Daniel was happier about – Being back on the top step of the podium after 3 years, or knowing that he’s won his podium bet with Zak Brown, and he’ll be able to get behind the wheel of his idol Dale Earnhardt Sr’s 1984 Chevrolet Monte Carlo in the future.

Speaking of which, did Cyril Abiteboul ever get that tattoo after Daniel got those podiums for Renault?
