Ricciardo's famous smile hasn't been as evident as he would of liked so far in 2017, however the likeable Australian continues to extract the most from his Red Bull Renault in F1. Currently sitting an impressive fourth in the drivers standings, an impressive 50 points ahead of his highly rated team mate Max Verstappen, Ricciardo has done himself plenty of favours in his bid to be recognized as one of the best drivers in current Formula One circles. Constantly in the mix at the sharp end of the field, despite a less than ideal Red Bull car, Ricciardo somehow continues to be able to extract the very most from the machinery at his disposal. Give the Aussie a regular race winning machine and many believe he will be difficult to beat. Vote now to tell us how you rate the first half of 2017 for Daniel Ricciardo, and leave a comment below!
