Daniel Ricciardo: Net worth and salary

Daniel Ricciardo is considered to be one of the best overtakers in the game, especially with his divebombs. The 30-year-old made his Formula 1 debut in 2011 with HRT. A year later, he moved to Toro Rosso alongside Jean-Eric Vergne.

According to reports, Ricciardo has an annual salary of $29 million, with a net worth of $50 million.

After two years with the Faenza-based team, he graduated to Red Bull to partner Sebastian Vettel. He would remain with the team after Vettel’s departure in 2015, this time teaming up with Daniil Kvyat. The two raced together until mid-2016 when Kvyat was demoted to Toro Rosso and Max Verstappen took his place.

In mid-2018, Daniel Ricciardo announced his departure from Red Bull after an association spanning 5 seasons. Ricciardo joined Renault in 2019, partnering with Nico Hulkenberg. However, Ricciardo won’t be renewing his Renault contract for 2021.

Many believed Ricciardo would eventually join Ferrari – given his hunger and passion to win the World Championship. Not to mention his Italian heritage. Sadly, it never came to pass.

The Australian was in talks with Ferrari, but the negotiations never amounted to anything serious. He was beaten to a seat at the Scuderia by McLaren’s Carlos Sainz.
