Daniel Ricciardo’s Biography
The Australian driver Daniel Joseph Ricciardo was born on the first day of July 1989 in Perth, Western Australia. He must have inherited his racing skills from his father, who took part in various races. He remembers seeing his father, who competed in various race series in Australia, racing at the Barbagallo Raceway in Wanneroo, near his birthplace. These times were his earliest memories of motorsport.
Daniel Ricciardo was born the son of his parents Giuseppe “Joe” and Grace and has a sister, Michelle Ricciardo. His father was an enthusiastic car collector and has cars like the Ferrari Dino 246GT of 1973, the Porsche 911 of 1963, and the Ferrari F40 in his collections.
Daniel attended Newman College in Berth. As a little boy of 9 years, he joined the Tiger Kart Club (TKC) and started karting and participated in many karting events. In his early years, he competed in various championships, including the Western Australian Formula Ford Championship in 2005, where he finished eighth, and the National Formula Ford Series. A scholarship in Formula BMW Asian with Eurasia Motorsport took him to first place in his debut season and also to pole position at Zhuhai.
He also drove Formula BMW cars in the Drivers’ Championship and the British Championship. In 2007 he competed with RP Motorsport in the European and Italian championships in the Formula Renault category. Although he scored 196 points in the Italian series, he did not manage to score a point in the European races.
However, the following year Daniel won his first European title in the Western European Cup and finished second in the Eurocup. Other categories he competed in were Formula 3 (2008-2009) and the Formula Renault 3.5 Series, where he was signed by Tech 1 for the 2010 season. In Formula 3, he won the British Formula 3 title with a 64-point lead over Dutch driver Renger van der Zande. With this victory, he became the first Australian driver after David Brabham to win the title in 1989.
He also drove for the Czech Republic’s ISR Racing team in 2011 before being called up for his HRT.
To drive in Formula 1 was the Australian driver’s dream. When he was finally allowed to compete in Formula 1, he described it as a dream come true. Daniel became a Formula 1 racer after testing for Red Bull Racing in 2009, although he was a test and reserve driver between 2010 and 2011. After his test drives, he joined Hispania Racing in June 2011 and drove the rest of the season except for one, the Indian Grand Prix.
He also drove for Toro Rosso from 2012 to 2013. In the 2014 season, he replaced his compatriot Mark Webber, who retired from the sport in 2013, at Infiniti Red Bull Racing.
The 2014 season went quite well for the racer, although he was disqualified in the first season of the Australian Grand Prix. The disqualification denied him the chance to perform the feat of becoming the first Australian to take the podium at the Australian Grand Prix since the start of the World Championship.
He won the Canadian Grand Prix, the Hungarian Grand Prix ahead of Fernando Alonso and Lewis Hamilton, and achieved his third victory in Belgium as a non-Mercedes driver. For his performances in the 2014 season, he received the Laureus World Sports Award for the breakthrough of the year in April 2015.
He has remained under contract with Red Bulls throughout the seasons. In the 2018 season, he drove two fastest laps in Australia and China and is now 4th in the drivers’ championship, 17 points behind his former team-mate Sebastian Vettel.
