Daniel Ricciardo's first season with Renault did not go by without issues, but he's made it and is already looking forward to 2020.

Partaking in the first race for his new team, Ricciardo lined up for his home race, the Australian GP.

And though he was pretty optimistic to get the maximum result in front of his home crowd, he exited the race quite early following an incident with rival Sergio Perez.

'I can't concentrate'

Following the race, Ricciardo partook in an interview and tried to explain the situation around his early exit. Note: he tried to explain.

Behind the Renault driver, a journalist began talking and Ricciardo, thrown off his game by the woman's loudness, looked quite perplexed by the situation.

"I can't concentrate, she's talking too loud," Ricciardo said to his interviewer before muttering "Shut the f... up!" to the lady.

A Renault media officer found the situation quite funny, but had to quickly detain her ever-growing smile.

The video may be from the 2019 Australian GP, but it's still solid gold!
