So let’s explore the dating history or the personal life of the honey badger.

The dating history of Daniel Ricciardo

During the initial years of his F1 career, Daniel Ricciardo was reportedly dating his college-time girlfriend, Jemma Boskovic. The duo knew each other from school and went all the way to even living together in Monaco.

But for unknown reasons, Ricciardo and Boskovic split in 2016.

Currently, the Australian is rumored to be dating Heidi Berger. She is an Austrian actress who has a big connection to Formula 1 in her family. If you haven’t guessed it by the name yet, then she is the daughter of former F1 driver Gerhard Berger.

The two of them were spotted at Ricciardo’s 32nd birthday party as well as in New York where Berger studies.
