F1 drivers enjoy a glamorous lifestyle, and Daniel Ricciardo and his teammate have spilled out on some of their wildest escapades.
Daniel Ricciardo and his McLaren teammate Lando Norris have confessed that they can get a little “bad” off the track while enjoying the mundane life of F1.
The two drivers spilled the beans on their most adventurous parties at a panel discussion last weekend at the Hilton hotel ahead of the Miami Grand Prix.

the New York post Reports Ricciardo and Norris revealed details of their hotel escapes and said things can get pretty wild.
“I mean, I didn’t just wreak havoc on the room, I wreaked havoc on the whole floor,” Ricciardo said of a particularly memorable stay at a hotel, though we suspect he was probably exaggerating slightly with irony for the benefit of the crowd.
When Norris was asked to share a story of his globetrotting exploits, the Brit turned to Ricciardo and whispered something in his ear, to which the curious crowd yelled: “Spoll!”
Norris did not divulge what he told Ricciardo, but did recall 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 big party.
“We got kicked out of the pool,” the 22-year-old revealed.
“We were bad in the pool and everyone, not just me, got kicked out. So we went up to the rooms (and) had a nice party in the rooms.
“And that’s it, so I apologize if there have been disturbed people in the ground above and the ground below. But yeah, it was a lot of fun. “
Ricciardo credited Hilton with making sure his sweaty racing suits were clean and ready for race day.
“I’ll say something that’s not too crazy, but they do very well in helping me stay cool on race day,” he said.
“There have been many times when we sweat in our suits and sometimes we use too many over the race weekend and have to clean or express them in a short amount of time.
“They are very quick and efficient in bringing back smelly, clean and wonderful dirty clothes.”
Among those present at the Hilton event were also Paris Hilton, Venus Williams, as well as the podcaster and friend of Ricciardo Dax Shepherd.
Ricciardo finished 13th at the Miami Grand Prix Monday (AEST), as Norris crashed out of the race, making it a day to forget for McLaren.
After five races, the Australian is 11th in the drivers’ standings, 24 points behind Norris, who is seventh.
The F1 season continues at the Spanish Grand Prix on Sunday 22 May (AEST).
