Daniel Ricciardo destroyed hotel room, Lando Norris reveals McLaren F1 parties

F1 drivers enjoy a glamorous lifestyle and Daniel Ricciardo and his teammate recounted some of their wildest adventures.

Daniel Ricciardo and his McLaren teammate Lando Norris have confessed that they can get a little “rascal” off the track while enjoying F1 life.

The two riders dumped the beans on their most adventurous parties in a panel discussion this past weekend at the Hilton hotel ahead of the Miami Grand Prix.

The New York Post reports that Ricciardo and Norris have revealed details of their hotel escapades and said things can get pretty crazy.

“I mean, I didn’t just wreck the room, I wrecked the entire floor,” Ricciardo recounted of a particularly memorable stay at a hotel — though we suspect he was probably exaggerating a little with the irony for the benefit of the crowd.

When Norris was asked to share a story of his exploits around the world, the Brit turned to Ricciardo and whispered something in his ear, to which the curious crowd shouted, “Spill!”

Norris did not divulge what he told Ricciardo, but recalled a story from his first season in F1 in 2019, when the entire McLaren team took over an entire floor of a Hilton hotel to throw a huge party.

“We were kicked out of the pool,” the 22-year-old revealed.

“We were being naughty in the pool and everyone, not just me, got kicked out. So we went upstairs to the rooms (and) had a nice party in the rooms.

“And that was it, so I apologize if there were any disturbed people on the floor above and on the floor below. But yeah, it was good fun.”

Ricciardo credited Hilton for making sure his sweaty racing suits are clean and ready for race day.

“I’ll say something that’s not too crazy, but they do really well in helping me stay cool on race day,” he said.

“There have been a lot of times where we sweat in our suits and sometimes we wear too many on a race weekend and we need to clean or wash them in a short amount of time.

“They are very quick and efficient in bringing dirty and smelly clothes back, clean and wonderful.”

Among those also in attendance at the Hilton event were Paris Hilton, Venus Williams, as well as podcaster and Ricciardo friend Dax Shepherd.

Ricciardo finished 13th at the Miami Grand Prix on Monday (AEST), while Norris dropped out of the race, making it an unforgettable day for McLaren.

After five races, the Australian is 11th in the drivers’ standings, 24 points behind Norris, who is in seventh.

The F1 season continues at the Spanish Grand Prix on Sunday 22 May (AEST).
