Daniel Ricciardo is rumoured to be dating Heidi Berger, the daughter of F1 legend Gerhard Berger.
Ricciardo is a driver who has had few high-profile romances. For a long time, he was in a relationship with childhood sweetheart Jemma Boskovich. Unfortunately, the pair infamously parted ways in 2016, in a breakup that was extensively covered.
However, Cupid may have found the Australian and his emotions again. According to multiple reports, Ricciardo is rumoured to be dating Heidi Berger, who is the daughter of F1 legend and retired driver Gerhard Berger.
Bild and Blick, two reputed publication, reported that the 24-year-old Heidi has been spotted with the 32-year-old Ricciardo on multiple occasions. She is an actress who studies in New York, and Ricciardo seems to be her new beau.
“There, they are said to have been seen shopping and dining and entering a hotel together,” Blick reported, as quoted by grandpx.news.
Italy’s La Gazzetta dello Sport also covered the pair, saying, “Ricciardo apparently celebrated his 32nd birthday together with Berger a few days before the Austrian GP.
“Although the rumours are circulating more and more, Ricciardo and Berger have not commented. Over the years, the McLaren driver has always kept his private life fairly quiet.”
Love is in the air
F1 drivers dating the daughters of the sport’s legends is not a new thing. Something about it is appealing enough that multiple drivers over the years find it to be a thing.
In 2016, former F1 driver Daniil Kvyat began a relationship with Kelly Piquet, the daughter of three-time world champion Nelson Piquet. The pair welcomed a child together, before announcing the end of their relationship three years later.
Piquet is currently dating Max Verstappen, the Red Bull driver and current world championship leader. Their relationship is public, with the model frequently visiting races to see Verstappen drive.
