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

F1 drivers have a glamorous lifestyle and Daniel Ricciardo and his teammate have shared some of their craziest escapades.

Daniel Ricciardo and his McLaren team-mate Lando Norris have confessed they can be a little “nasty” off the track while still enjoying the high F1 life.

The two drivers shared the highlights of their most adventurous evenings during a roundtable discussion last weekend at the Hilton Hotel ahead of the Miami Grand Prix.

the New York Post reports that Ricciardo and Norris revealed details of their hotel getaways and said things could get pretty crazy.

‘I mean, I didn’t just trash the bedroom, I trashed the whole floor,’ Ricciardo said of one particularly memorable hotel stay – though we suspect he was probably exaggerating slightly. with tongue in cheek for the benefit of the crowd.

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

Norris did not divulge what he said to Ricciardo, but did recall an account 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 were kicked out of the pool,” the 22-year-old revealed.

“We were mean 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 was it, so I apologize if there were disturbed people in the ground above and the ground below. But yeah, it was great fun.

Ricciardo thanked Hilton for making sure his sweaty race suits were clean and ready to go for race day.

“I’m going to say something that’s not too crazy, but they do a great job of helping me stay fresh on race day,” he said.

“There have been many times where we have sweated in our suits and sometimes we use too much on a race weekend and have to get them cleaned or washed quickly in a short time.

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

Also in attendance at the Hilton event were Paris Hilton, Venus Williams, and Ricciardo’s podcaster and friend Dax Shepherd.

Ricciardo finished 13th at the Miami Grand Prix on Monday (AEST), while 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 in seventh.

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