Daniel Ricciardo Biography

Daniel Ricciardo's first race at 2011 British F1 GP driving the HRT F111

Daniel Ricciardo's first race at 2011 British F1 GP driving the HRT F111

After the remarkable success of Sebastian Vettel the attention now turns to the next superstar to make the grade from Red Bull’s famed driving school.

Australian Daniel Ricciardo has made a brilliant start to his Red Bull career, and now he is expected to lead the team into a new era after Vettel’s move to Ferrari, and win world championships.

The 26-year-old stunned the sport by dominating his multiple world champion team-mate in 2014, and he’s proved that he has the speed, mentality and race craft to go on and win titles himself.

However, despite a slightly sour 2015 dominated by engine issues and poor luck, the Australian remains one of the best drivers on the grid.

After an unspectacular spell at Toro Rosso, there were doubts over Ricciardo’s credentials but he has emphatically put those to bed and emerged as one of the hottest drivers in modern Formula 1.

The former Formula Renault and Formula Three champion got his F1 break through mid-way through 2011 when the, now liquidated, HRT team signed him to replace Narain Karthikeyan. An agreement was reached between Red Bull and HRT and Ricciardo raced until the end of the season, albeit in the grids slowest car.

After a tough baptism of fire, which saw him finish only as high as 18th, Ricciardo made the expected step to sign for Toro Rosso, the team where Red Bull’s junior drivers hone their talents, in 2012.

Even before a wheel had been turned it was expected that Mark Webber’s eventual replacement at Red Bull would be one of Ricciardo or his débutante team mate Jean-Eric Vergne, which created a fascinating rivalry.

This intensified when Ricciardo overtook Vergne on the final lap on the season’s opening race in Australia to finish 9th and score an extra championship point.

Unfortunately for both Ricciardo and Vergne, Torro Rosso fell behind their midfield rivals as they struggled to develop their car.

Despite this, Ricciardo battled hard and four points finishes out of five races earned praise up and down the grid. However, despite being the more convincing of the two protégées, Ricciardo finished behind Vergne in the final standings by a substantial six points.

In 2013, the Aussie upped his game and crucially beat Vergne in both qualifying and races. He was awarded a promotion to replace the retiring Webber for 2014 but, despite his obvious talent, he was not expected to challenge then 3 times world champion Sebastian Vettel.

The German admittedly struggled with the car and he had the majority of poor reliability, but there is no doubt that his reputation took a hit after being well beaten by Ricciardo.

The young hopeful won races in Canada, Hungary and Belgium and although he benefited from Mercedes errors, he showed composure and a killer instinct.

He remained in the championship hunt until the last few races, highlighting how successful 2014 season he had.

In 2015, things went backwards instead of forwards. His new team-mate Daniil Kvyat was less consistent but finished ahead of him in the table, while the Aussie suffered awful luck with reliability. The Renault engine still couldn't cope with the Mercedes power unit and Red Bull was putting all the pressure on the French engine producer to perform better.

In the 2016 F1 season Red Bull did receive a better power unit and was able to be faster than Ferrari and started winning races again. Daniel Kvyat was replace by 18 year old Dutch driver Max Verstappen. The Dutchman who was showing a lot of skill and talent at Toro Rosso and had to push Ricciardo to a higher level, and he did.

His first race in Spain was a fairy-tale. He didn't put a foot wrong that weekend and even won the 2016 Spanish Grand Prix on his debut race for Red Bull. Ricciardo woke up and was showing his focus and determination again to push the team and the RB13 to it's limits.

The most memorable race of Ricciardo was of course the 2016 Malaysian GP. Lewis Hamilton was cruising around with a big lead in front of the race, when his Mercedes W07 engine blew-up on the main straight.

Max and Daniel were driving 2nd and 3rd and started battling hard for the lead. Daniel showed he's the boss at Red Bull and won the race with Max who settled for 2nd and Rosberg finished 3rd.

De podium ceremony was quite a show because of Ricciardo's shoe champagne drinking  habit. The complete podium drunk champagne out of his shoe. Even Red Bull Racing team principle Christian Horner couldn't escape.

He scored 8 podums and won 1 race in 2016 and took 3rd place in the 2016 drivers championship.
