WATCH: Ricciardo and Norris’ post-race celebrations after clinching McLaren a 1-2 at Monza


Unbridled joy, pure elation and the relief of having taken a long-awaited victory for McLaren – here’s how Daniel Ricciardo and Lando Norris reacted after their stunning 2021 Italian Grand Prix triumph.

At Monza Ricciardo clinched a first F1 victory since 2018, and his first for McLaren after a difficult start to his career with the team, in the process ending a 170-race win-drought that stretched back to the 2012 Brazilian Grand Prix for the papaya outfit.

Their wait for a one-two finish, the first for any team this season, was also over – their last one-two having come at the 2010 Canadian Grand Prix with Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button.
