Video: Five minutes with Daniel Ricciardo

Ricciardo bares all in front of the Wheels lens, detailing his weirdest fan requests, who he reckons is the best driver and how he’d like to put Hamilton in a headlock.

Video: Five minutes with Daniel Riccardo

Daniel Ricciardo is one of Australia’s most famous exports, with the perpetually-grinning F1 driver being hot property both on and off the track.

We cornered Ricciardo to throw some curly questions his way and his answers are entertaining, to say the least. From what his first cars were to what’s presently in his driveway, to revelations about some of the crazier things that superfans have asked him to do, Ricciardo gives us a peek at what his life is like.

And then he waxes lyrical about how he’d like to fight Lewis Hamilton in the UFC Octagon, and he weighs in on that wonderfully loaded question of “who is the best driver in Formula 1”. Hear what he has to say on all of this – and more – in our video.
