Aggressive overtakes, funny interviews and charming charisma has seen Ricciardo build a huge fanbase in Formula One.

Huge characters are a part of F1’s DNA and are a massive reason why many people are such big fans of the sport. Daniel Ricciardo is one of the best examples of that in the modern era of racing. Are you excited to potentially see the Australian back in action? We certainly are.
