Ricciardo made his Formula Three début at the Nürburgring, entering SG Formula’s Formula 3 Euro Series team. Despite only a short amount of experience in the car, Ricciardo qualified in eighth for the first race which later converted into sixth in the race after James Jakes and Christian Vietoris stalled on the grid. But he struggled in the reverse-grid race, finishing just fifteenth.
Ricciardo moved to the British Formula 3 Championship for the 2009 season driving for Carlin Motorsport. He also made his debut in the 3.5-litre World Series by Renault championship, racing alongside Charles Pic at Tech 1 Racing for the rounds at the Autódromo Internacional do Algarve in Portugal. He retired from the first race, before finishing fifteenth in the second. When he returned to Formula Three, he extended his championship lead to 45 points before returning to the Portuguese circuit.
A win and a third in the British-registered cars, gave him an unassailable 64-point lead over Renger van der Zande with just 42 available. This meant that Ricciardo became the first Australian driver since David Brabham in 1989 to win the British Formula 3 title. Just like Brabham, Ricciardo won the title in a car powered by a Volkswagen engine. Ricciardo finished the season on a high, taking both pole positions for the final round of the series, at Brands Hatch.
He won the first race by fifteen seconds, and finished fourth (third in British-registered cars as Marcus Ericsson was running in the Invitational Class) in the season-ending race. His championship winning margin was 87 points as Walter Grubmüller overhauled his teammate van der Zande, who was absent from the weekend due to a conflicting Euroseries race in Barcelona.
Ricciardo made his track debut at the wheel of a Formula One car, when he tested for Red Bull Racing at the young drivers test at Circuito de Jerez over three days, from 1–3 December 2009.On the final day of testing he clocked the fastest time of the test by over a second. This placed him as the only driver to go into the 1:17 bracket.
Red Bull Racing’s team manager Christian Horner suggested that Ricciardo may replace his 2010 World Series teammate Hartley as the team’s test and reserve driver. As it turned out, Ricciardo and Hartley were to share test and reserve duties for both Red Bull, and sister team Scuderia Toro Rosso until the latter was removed from the Red Bull Junior team.
On 8 February 2015, during the third episode of series 22 of the popular British motoring television programme Top Gear, Ricciardo became the fastest Formula One driver to perform a lap of the Top Gear test track during the Star in a Reasonably Priced Car feature, beating the previous record-holder Lewis Hamilton with a time of 1:42.2.
Ricciardo had a new teammate for the 2020 season with Hülkenberg being replaced by Esteban Ocon. Ricciardo started the season with a retirement at the 2020 Austrian Grand Prix. In this next race, the 2020 Styrian Grand Prix, Ricciardo was running in 6th place with 2 laps to go before an overtake attempt by Lance Stroll forced Ricciardo wide, causing his to lose positions to Stroll and also Lando Norris. He ended the race in 8th after a close ending with Stroll and Sergio Pérez. Ricciardo qualified 11th at the 2020 Hungarian Grand Prix, and finished the race in 8th place.
At the 2020 British Grand Prix, Ricciardo finished in 4th place, equaling his best result for Renault. He was running in 6th place before late punctures to Carlos Sainz Jr. and Valtteri Bottas promoted him up to 4th. He was close to overtaking Charles Leclerc for his first podium in 2 years, but missed it by 1.2 seconds. At the 70th Anniversary Grand Prix, Ricciardo qualified 5th, but a spin midway through the race led to a 14th place finish. Ricciardo qualified 13th and finished 11th at the next race in Spain.
After two years at Renault F1 Team, Ricciardo joined McLaren for the 2021 Formula One World Championship as a replacement for Carlos Sainz Jr. who signed a multi-year deal with Ferrari. His team mate for 2021 is Lando Norris, who was retained by the team.Regarding his new contract, Ricciardo admitted that before signing for McLaren he had held talks with Ferrari about taking over Sebastian Vettel’s seat but Ferrari had instead signed Sainz.
