Daniel Ricciardo

Video: Ricciardo tests himself against a fighter jet

Back in 2014, then Red Bull driver Daniel Ricciardo took his car back home to see how his job as a Formula 1 driver stacks up against a day in the Australian Air Force.

Daniel Ricciardo took on Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) pilot Michael Keightly at an air base in Australia.

Was there a reason behind the event? Not really, but how can you not be entertained by the display of power and speed put on by both guys.

Watch the head to head with Ricciardo and F/A-18 Hornet pilot, FLTLT Michael Keightley, below:
