Meet your new “Top Gear” world champion – Formula One driver, Daniel Ricciardo. Ricciardo set the new record for a lap time around the “Top Gear” test track in the Reasonably Priced Car [see video link below] with a time of 1:42.2. That time was faster than the 1:42.9 it took Lewis Hamilton to get the Suzuki Liana around the track.
The episode will appear tonight on BBC America.
The first race of the 2015 Formula One racing season takes place in Melbourne, Australia on March 15, 2015.
