MONZA, Italy (AP) — Red Bull driver Daniel Ricciardo chose an unusual way to occupy his time while waiting for qualifying to resume at the Italian Grand Prix on Saturday.

During the rain delay, Mercedes teammates Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas played a video game, while Ricciardo took over a live TV camera from the official broadcaster for Sunday's race.

With the camera on his shoulder, the Australian walked into the Mercedes garage and zoomed in on Hamilton's car before being escorted away.

"I was just playing around, trying to entertain the fans," Ricciardo said. "It was very nice of them to stick around today in the rain."
