Daniel Ricciardo is one of the most loved drivers on the F1 grid. The reason behind this is his quirky nature and his presence on the grid. He is quite famous for his helmet designs.
He used to drive for Red Bull Racing F1 up till the 2018 season. Ricciardo got a seat at Renault F1 in 2019 with Nico Hulkenberg. He started the season with a multi-colored helmet. It was pink, green, black and blue in color.
Daniel Ricciardo finished a moderately disappointing season for Renault F1 in the ninth spot in the championship, with 54 points. He finished in front of teammate Hülkenberg. On 29 August 2019, it was declared that Hülkenberg would be traded at Renault for the 2020 season and that Ricciardo would partner previous Force India driver and Mercedes reserve driver Esteban Ocon.
Daniel Ricciardo is unlike the other drivers. He is the fun-loving and peppy driver. During the 2017 Italian Grand Prix, there was a two and a half hours delay due to rain. Daniel was strolling through the pit garages and he stumbled across a cameraman. He took the camera from him and went inside the Mercedes F1 garage and started filming Lewis Hamilton. Just like taking over the camera, Daniel once took over the Mercedes F1 Instagram.
