Ricciardo asked: “Would you like some?”, to which the British actor replied: “I’d love some.”

The Red Bull racing driver took off his other shoe and told the star: “You’re a good man.”

“I am proud of you for doing that,” said Lewis Hamilton, who won in Canada for the sixth time, beating Valtteri Bottas into second place.

Sir Patrick joked: “I don’t care. I made the podium for the first time so I will drink out of anybody’s shoes.”
