Promoted: Ricciardo pitches for INFINITI Employee of the Month

Second time around is always harder – that’s what F1 ace Daniel Ricciardo learns when he bids to become Employee of the Month at an INFINITI dealership.

While Formula 1 is in summer-shutdown mode and most of his rivals are at the beach, Daniel swaps his fireproof overalls for a tailored suit in a new video by the Renault F1 Team’s technical partner. But the master of the ‘shoey’ is by no means a shoo-in as he hits the showroom floor.

Last time Daniel shot for Employee of the Month status, back in 2015, he found changing lightbulbs and making coffee in a Montreal INFINITI dealership tougher than going wheel to wheel with Lewis Hamilton.

This time around he’s determined to take a step up. No more cleaning floors and juggling refreshments: this time he plans to ace the sales targets and bring F1 pitstop methodology to the service bays.

This being Daniel, he comes armed with a dazzling grin, cheeky charm and total confidence – with a side order of competitive intensity. The question is: do the staff of the dealership know what they’ve let themselves in for?

Strap yourselves in for a bumpy ride as Daniel brings his own inimitable style to the worlds of service, marketing and people management. This might just change the car industry as we know it…

Can Daniel prove himself to be the ultimate team player? Can the service department compete with F1 mechanics? And what will the customers make of free donuts with every test drive? Find out now…

The Mercedes lap that puts F1 victory fight back on a knife-edge

Red Bull led the way after the first two practice sessions for the 2021 French Grand Prix, but only just ahead of Mercedes. There was all the usual practice skulduggery complicating the performance picture, but one aspect seen at the world champion squad gave it a ‘surprise’ lift, as it looks to leave its street-circuit struggles firmly in the past.

How Ferrari got its F1 recovery plan working

After its worst campaign in 40 years, the famous Italian team had to bounce back in 2021 – and it appears to be delivering. Although it concedes the pole positions in Monaco and Baku paint a somewhat misleading picture of its competitiveness, the team is heading into the 2022 rules revamp on much stronger footing to go for wins again

Long-awaited wins for ex-Formula 1 drivers Marcus Ericsson and Kevin Magnussen in IndyCar and IMSA last weekend gave F1 a reminder of what it is missing.

The F1 figures Red Bull and Mercedes can't afford to see again

OPINION: An interloper squad got amongst the title contenders during Formula 1’s street-circuit mini-break, where Red Bull left with the points lead in both championships. But, as the campaign heads back to purpose-built venues once again, how the drivers of the two top teams compare in one crucial area will be a major factor in deciding which squad stays in or retakes the top spot

Two tenth places in recent races have lifted Alfa Romeo to the head of Formula 1's 'Class C' battle in 2021, but longer-term the Swiss-based squad has far loftier ambitions.

Why Mosley’s legacy amounts to far more than tabloid rumour

The newspapers, naturally, lingered over Max Mosley’s tainted family history and niche sexual practices. But this is to trivialise the legacy of a big beast of motor racing politics. Stuart Codling weighs the life of a man whose work for safety on both road and track has saved hundreds of thousands of lives, but whose penchant for cruelty remains problematic and polarising.
