Tip: It was a fellow F1 racer.
Testing is well underway for the new F1 season, and Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo will be looking to secure a podium finish on home turf at the season opening Australian Grand Prix on March 15. His run in Top Gear’s Suzuki Liana this week should give him a jolt of confidence, after removing Lewis Hamilton from the top spot of the “Star in a Reasonably Priced Car” leaderboard. Crossing the finishing line with a time of 1:42.2, he beat the F1 champion’s time by seven tenths of a second.
His time was also a second quicker than Mark Webber, who he replaced at Red Bull last year, and destroyed ex-teammate Sebastian Vettel’s time by almost two seconds. But will he have enough to take Hamilton's crown this season? One heckler from the Top Gear audience certainly doesn't think so.
