Abu Dhabi GP

Monday, November 26th, 2018

“I would have loved to sign-off this chapter with a podium, so I can’t be ecstatic with fourth and there is a little disappointment there. I led for a while which was fun but staying out put me out of touch with the leaders. I don’t think we had much of a choice, maybe we could have pitted early and kept track position but nobody thought the supersofts would hold on like they did. The pace advantage after I pitted was strong but it fell away quite quickly and I couldn’t make a big enough impact on Max or the leaders. My thoughts are still on the race but once I cool off I will reflect on the last five years with the Team. I would have loved a championship with them but Red Bull brought me my first pole, victory and podium. Everything I have done in F1 is down the them and I’m incredibly grateful for that. The moment before the race with everyone in the garage showing their love and appreciation was really cool and that’s certainly something I will never forget. I thank the Team for the last five years and Red Bull for the last 10. I would have loved to drink out of my shoe and celebrate with the Team one last time, but now I close this chapter with thanks and love for everyone in the Red Bull family.”

Stance Welcomes F1 Driver Daniel Ricciardo as its Newest Punk & Poet

Tuesday, November 20th, 2018

The partnership between Stance and Ricciardo is a natural fit for the F1 driver and the American apparel brand

SAN CLEMENTE, CA (November 20th, 2018) – Stance is proud to announce the addition of Daniel Ricciardo as its newest Punk & Poet, the brands’ ambassador collective that unites a diverse community of creative originals from around the world. The Australian professional racecar driver began his foray into his craft at just nine-years-old and has since earned a remarkable list of victories and achievements, solidifying himself as one of the most elite drivers on the grid.

As a brand that Ricciardo had already been wearing, and as a personality that Stance has long felt embodied its ethos, the relationship is a natural alignment between two partners that share similar passions of sport, art, music and design.

“Everyone knows he can drive, he’s one of the best drivers in the world right now. But what we love about Daniel is he is such a happy, positive person,” said Jeff Kearl, Founder and CEO of Stance. “He’s a true original, and we are excited to have him as part of our brand family.”

Founded in 2009, Stance’s uncommon approach to art and science quickly turned the overlooked category of socks into a fashion statement, while redefining expectations of what socks should feel like. Since then, the brand has applied that same approach to underwear and t-shirts and in the process has built legions of fans, one of which is Ricciardo.

“Stance genuinely reflects my lifestyle and the creativity of the brand is what drew me in, but the product quality is what got me hooked,” said Daniel Ricciardo. “The socks and underwear are next level in terms of comfort and fit, so being able to work with a brand that I already put on every day is going to be really fun.”

As a Punk & Poet, Daniel Ricciardo will have limited edition collaborative socks and underwear that will launch in 2019 and will be available at and Stance retail stores.

Brazil GP

Monday, November 12th, 2018

“I’m happy with my race, I’m happy with all the team’s efforts but still a bit disappointed to just miss out on the podium. I caught Kimi and could see the podium but unfortunately it just wasn’t quite enough. The strategy was spot on once again so we can’t fault ourselves at all. I had fun and some great battles, especially my pass on Bottas. I told the team on the radio I was going for it and I made it stick. The battle with Seb was cool, I think we maybe touched once or twice, but I’ve always respected him and the way he races. We’ve had some on-track battles before, at times it gets slightly heated, but I believe we know where each other’s limits are. It’s frustrating because every time we have a penalty we seem to have a fast car, if we started closer to the front I’m confident we could have had a really good result. It’s bitter sweet I guess, we did well but if we had started where I qualified we could have done better, you can’t ask for much starting start from 11th. Anyway, I have no regrets from the race, I did all I could and I know the team did, so it is what it is. With the pace we had today I really have some optimism going to Abu Dhabi. I feel like that’s a stronger track for us than this, so maybe we can go there and drink some fake champagne.”

Mexico GP

Thursday, November 1st, 2018

“I saw pass fail on my dash which I guess was some sort of hydraulic failure and I was forced to retire immediately. This sucks and it is at a point where I feel why should I even come on a Sunday. There hasn’t been a clean weekend for so long due to many different reasons and it’s breaking my heart. Deflated comes to mind but this feels deeper than that. I put it on pole but lost out at the start. It just doesn’t seem to happen for me on a Sunday, even if I have a good Saturday. I don’t want to end it like this and I know nobody is doing it deliberately but I just can’t seem to catch a break and a double podium for the Team today was exactly what we all wanted. I’m a very positive guy and I will probably still wake up tomorrow with some sort of positivity.”
