Should Aussie Daniel Ricciardo be victorious this weekend he will mention a Honey Badger, skol a Red Bull, do a burnout for 15 seconds and mention Mark Webber in his acceptance speech.
That’s what the betting indicates anyway, with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au opening a number of novelty markets around the F1 rising star.
His sponsors look likely to get value for money, with $5.00 priced for Ricciardo to skol a Red Bull straight after the race. His dentist may also be in for a payday, with a $1.87 line set for him to drink over or under 3.5 litres of the energy drink.
Nick Cummins may not be happy, but his title as the Honey Badger could be under threat, with Ricciardo $7.00 to mention the phrase Honey Badger in his first post-race interview.
His enemy Sebastian Vettel may also get a shout out for all the wrong reasons – $6.00 to be mentioned by Riccardo and $7.50 for the two to have a screaming match.
With the Melbourne Fashion Festival also in town Riccardo’s better half Jemma Boskovich is also set to get plenty of attention. She may want to get on the odds of $7.00 for Ricciardo to propose to her post-race, with $4.00 also set that she will wear a black dress of the final day of the race.
“Win or lose, this week is all about Daniel Riccardo and every move he makes. His missus may be the biggest winner of all, we have odds of $7.00 that he will pop the question. We are giving that an even bigger chance than him actually winning the race!” said sportsbet.com.au’s Shaun Anderson.
