“It was a crazy race at the end, and it feels really cool to take fourth place. We made a good start, jumped up to sixth and we showed decent pace. At the safety car restart I was close to Carlos [Sainz] but didn’t have enough and that allowed Lando [Norris] to have a run on me and I missed out there. That was a bit frustrating, but it came back to us at the end. The race really came alive and that was really good. We had some pace at the end and I was able to get Lando and then Carlos had a problem. I saw Charles [Leclerc] getting closer and maybe with a couple more laps we could have had a podium! We have another chance next week. We were assisted by some chaos, but we were definitely a top six car today and that’s pleasing.”

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.

Russian GP

Monday, October 1st, 2018

“The first lap was a bit of a mess and there are a few little things I will look back on and try to do better. Two cars were fighting at Turn 8 and as I went to pass them I was on the marbles, then off-track, which lost me positions. I then tried to take the slipstream of what I think was the McLaren but when I pulled out of the tow I hit some debris damaging my front wing. From then on, we had a bit of a limp and my race was pretty lonely. I think as a Team, fifth and sixth was probably the best we could achieve from the back of the grid today but obviously I would like to have been closer to fifth than seventh. Although we had better pace than expected this weekend I think we still made the right decision to take the penalties and on paper Suzuka, Austin and Mexico look better for us. I may have forgotten what champagne tastes like and I definitely want more before the season is out, so I will do what I can in Suzuka to get that.”

Daniel Ricciardo x Orlebar Brown

Friday, March 23rd, 2018

Luxury men’s resort wear brand Orlebar Brown has collaborated with Australian racing driver Daniel Ricciardo on a new three-piece collection of swim shorts.

Known for combining luxurious fabrics with vibrant prints and colours, Orlebar Brown offers a full range of resort wear including shoes and accessories and has established a global reputation for their tailored approach to swimwear.

At 28 years old, and with an impressive 27 podium finishes, Ricciardo is favoured in the industry for his infectious smile and upbeat attitude.

On the limited-edition collection, he says, “I was inspired by places I’ve travelled mostly—they’ve left me with great memories. I live for the summer and it makes me happy on so many levels, so my swim shorts are genuinely some of my greatest pieces of clothing.” The collection uses Orlebar Brown’s classic Bulldog style and are given the Ricciardo treatment inspired by some of his favourite destinations; Monaco and Austin.

Now his home, Monaco hosts the most prestigious Grand Prix race so it was an essential choice for a photographic print swim short. Bulldog Texas, Daniel’s favourite, are illustrated with his inspirations and interests including his synonymous honey badger motif—harmless in appearance but ruthless when challenged—while Bulldog Pin-Up offer a tessellated graphic reminiscent of vintage Americana, street art and tattoo culture.

“Working with one of the most talented racing drivers Daniel Ricciardo was an instinctive choice; his sunny attitude encapsulates Orlebar Brown’s ‘Feel Summer’ mentality, and his favourite places resonate with us as destinations where our swim shorts are designed to be worn. The collection brings Daniel’s sense of fun to our swimwear offering.” Adam Brown, Founder

Limited run, available exclusively at Orlebar Brown online and in-store from 20th March 2018.
