Daniel Ricciardo has gone undercover on the internet as part of a YouTube video uploaded to McLaren F1's channel.

The 31-year-old replied to fans' comments about him, where he was very candid in his confession that he doesn't read such remarks.

"You get a lot of s**t on the internet, a lot of negativity. That's why I often don't read comments," the Aussie told McLaren F1's official YouTube channel.

Ricciardo also revealed team boss Zak Brown's previously top-secret nickname to the world. Brown promised the driver that he would be able to try out one of Dale Earnhardt's famous NASCAR's if he clinched a podium - something the former Red Bull man is very excited about.

"It would be awesome to drive it [Earnhardt's car]. That would be the reward if I get a podium this year, so I'm super pumped," Ricciardo added.

"I can't believe I'm saying this, because I think it's a bit of an underground secret. Little did you know, but some of us call him Uncle Buck. Anyone who wasn't born in the 2000s should know who Uncle Buck is."
