If one doesn’t miss Daniel Ricciardo’s daring overtakes on track, his genial attitude is definitely to be noticed. Born in 1989, Daniel “The Honey Badger” Ricciardo is an Australian Formula 1 driver who currently competes for the Alpha Tauri team. Daniel made his F1 debut in 2011 for the HRT team and has since raced for Toro Rosso, Red Bull, Renault and McLaren. He became a household name during his Red Bull years, remarkably outscoring Sebastian Vettel in his first year for the Austrian outfit. The subsequent high-profile moves to McLaren and Renault did not bring desired results for the Aussie and even led him to take a reserve driver role for Red Bull at the start of the 2023 season. But he is now back full-time on the track, having replaced Nyck de Vries at the sister team and there is no doubt F1 fans are happier to see him battling it out with the best in the business.
