A great gesture from Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo

A great gesture from Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo

Daniel Ricciardo has loaned the RB10 that he took to a maiden Formula 1 race win in Canada three years ago to the newly-expanded Motor Museum of Western Australia.

The car will be on permanent loan at the museum, having been acquired by the West Aussie from Red Bull Racing following his breakthrough 2014 season with the team, when he comfortably out-performed teammate Sebastian Vettel on his way to third in the championship.

On a short pit stop after a second place at the Singapore Grand Prix on Sunday, Ricciardo visited the $2 million extension to unveil his 2014 Red Bull Racing car, which will be on display at the museum.

He said the car was of special significance to him because he drove it to his first F1 victory, in Montreal in June 2014.

“It was a breakthrough season for me and I had a few favours I could ask,” Ricciardo told The West Australian.

“One of them was if I could have the car and the team were happy to hand it to me. It’s got the engine in it from Renault too and I believe not all of them you get engines in for displays like this.

“I think it has been mainly at the Red Bull factory but I wanted it to come home. I owe a lot to Perth and Western Australia and this is a nice touch.

Ricciardo said not having a garage to store the car made lending it to the museum a logical choice.

“It’s not a replica, it’s not a fake, it’s real and it is my reality, and hopefully it can kickstart some other dreams.”

Museum board chairman Kelvin Ferris said getting the car was a coup and the perfect way to celebrate the opening of the extension.
