Witness the Greatest Motor Race of 2016: Ricci vs Felipinho!

We have seen many fierce rivalries at the pinnacle of motor racing. Hunt/Lauda. Prost/Senna. Schumacher/Everybody. But so far, Daniel Ricciardo has been able to avoid getting wrapped up in a personal rivalry with a particular driver... until...

...

A CHALLENGER APPROACHES!


Naturally, such a throwing down of the gauntlet could not be taken lightly. Felipinho Massa called out the Australian, challenging him to a one-on-one battle on his home circuit as Casa Massa in Monaco.
Ricciardo responded. In Portuguese, no less...


...and so, the scene was set. It was time for an epic showdown of, well, epic proportions!
Living in Monaco himself, Mr. Ricciardo was only too happy to pick up the gauntlet, and mount his Crazy Cart alongside the home favourite. How would this turn out? Who would get the inside line into turn 1 of this tight Monaco circuit? Watch the race below:


 One could argue about whether there was a clear weight advantage in favour of Massa, but ultimately the stopwatch doesn't lie, and - unless I'm very much mistaken - the result in the end was clear. It's round one to the young Brazilian/Monegasque hot-shoe! The world of racing waits with baited breath for the inevitable rematch...
