Daniel Ricciardo has landed an alternative new job in Formula 1 for the Canadian Grand Prix.
The Red Bull reserve driver will host an 'alternate telecast' on America's ESPN2 during the weekend with actor Will Arnett, which will air separately from regular race coverage on ABC.
Ricciardo and Arnett are set to be joined by guests on The Grandstand with Daniel Ricciardo and Will Arnett, and there will be further editions of the show during the United States Grand Prix in October and the inaugural Las Vegas Grand Prix in November.

Ricciardo excited about new job
Ricciardo – who will be on location at the Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve, while Arnett will join from a remote location – is looking forward to his new venture.
"This is going to be a hoot!" the eight-time race winner said.
"As you'd expect Will and I are going to have some fun with the show, but we're hoping it just feels like you're watching F1 with your mates.
"We will have some amazing guests, plenty of laughs and with some luck, bring fans another step closer to the sport I love so much. Buckle up America!"
