Daniel Ricciardo races against a Royal Australian Air Force Hornet

Daniel Ricciardo raced his F1 car against FLTLT Michael Keightley's Royal Australian Air Force Hornet as a warm-up to this weekend's Australian Grand Prix.

  • Daniel Ricciardo: “Daniel Ricciardo: “The craziest part was looking in my mirrors and seeing a Hornet – I’m just used to other Formula 1 car behind me. It was very surreal. I definitely felt the pure power of the Hornet and as it passed me I was just hoping that it wasn’t going to blow me off the track. It makes what I do seems low level compared to that! I can’t wait to get on track now. Having a home race is awesome, Albert Park is one of my top five favourite circuits.”
    Flight Lieutenant Michael Keightley: "Having a chance to meet Daniel was fantastic. It was interesting to talk about the synergies between our jobs, including the hard work and training we undertake to be able to deliver them."

    Infiniti Red Bull Racing’s Daniel Ricciardo has compared his incredible day job to that of a Royal Australian Air Force Pilot today with a run around at a regional Air Force Base.

    With the 2014 Formula 1 Rolex Australia Grand Prix hitting the streets of Melbourne this weekend, Daniel Ricciardo and F/A-18 Hornet pilot, FLTLT Michael Keightley got the adrenaline pumping with an occupation comparison of larger-than-life proportions.

    Both Daniel and Michael have perhaps two of the best careers in the world and although they have different crafts, they push themselves beyond what’s possible on a daily basis.
