Infiniti Red Bull Racing Formula 1 driver Daniel Ricciardo will feature as a special guest on Top Gear next month. 

Aussie Formula 1 ace, Daniel Ricciardo has confirmed that he will be a star in a reasonably priced car on Top Gear next month.

The Infiniti Red Bull Racing driver will be seeking to snatch the current lap record from 2014 F1 world champion Lewis Hamilton when he takes to Top Gear’s Suzuki Liana.

At a media event earlier this week he said, “It’s been a while since I’ve heard people say ‘When are you going to go on Top Gear?’ So the time has come…I believe Lewis has got the crown at the moment so it would be nice to take at least one title off him.”

Fellow Australian Mark Webber is second on the lapboard ahead of Ricciardo’s teammate from last year and four-time F1 world champion Sebastian Vettel.

It is believed Dan Ricciardo will makes his Top Gear debut in episode three of this season which will air on February 8.
