Daniel Ricciardo unveils spectacular syrup-themed helmet for F1 Canadian Grand Prix

Earlier this week Visa Cash App RB F1 Team released their media preview for this weekend’s Formula 1 Grand Prix. In that preview, driver Daniel Ricciardo offered his thoughts on the upcoming race in Montreal. “I love Montréal, the place, the track and I’m really excited to go back there. It has some special memories; this year will be ten years since my very first Formula 1 win at this track,” said Ricciardo. “Of course, I missed the race last year so I’m more than ready to have a good weekend and get some more points on the board. Maple Syrup, Poutine and some good times!”

As it turns out, that last sentence — involving maple syrup — was something of a clue.

Ricciardo unveiled his special theme helmet for this weekend’s Canadian Grand Prix Thursday, and it is a nod to the sweet, sticky goodness that is maple syrup:

Also, that is a tremendous caption from the social media team at VCARB: “Honey Syrup Badger,” a nod to Ricciardo’s “Honey Badger” nickname.

Ricciardo also shared this photograph on social media of the helmet, and the pancakes he was pouring syrup on:

This week will likely see some more theme helmets, but it might be hard to top this effort from Ricciardo.
