Ricciardo drives Ford Mustang Supercar

AUSTRALIAN Formula 1 race winner Daniel Ricciardo has hopped behind the wheel of a Ford Mustang in the United States.

In the days after Ford announced its partnership with Red Bull for at least five years starting from the 2026 Formula 1 season, Ricciardo took a Gen2 Ford Mustang Supercar for a spin in Detroit.

The Red Bull F1 reserve driver was joined for the occasion by Ford CEO Jim Farley.

“I’ve driven pretty much every Ford under the sun and just got out of this bad boy right here,” Ricciardo said via a social media video.

“A bit of Aussie in me, a little bit of a V8 Supercar, here in Michigan which is far from home, but I felt at home in it, it was a lot of fun.

“A big thanks to Ford for having me out here today, it’s been a blast.

“I’ve enjoyed my first visit to Detroit and I’ll be coming back, that’s for sure.”

It’s not Ricciardo’s first taste of a Supercar, having sampled Red Bull’s ‘Sandman’ ride car in 2016 and a Kelly Racing Nissan Altima three years later.
