Daniel Ricciardo honors Kobe Bryant with helmet on the first day of pre-season testing

Formula One World Champion Lewis Hamilton started off the 2020 season well with the fastest lap at the first testing day of the season in Barcelona. The Englishman is looking to defend his title this season and by doing so, he would be tied up with F1 legend Michael Schumacher for the most World Champions titles (7) in the history of the F1. He finished his lap 0.337 quicker than Mercedes teammate Bottas, who finished with the second best laptime of the day.

Daniel Ricciardo wore a Kobe Bryant helmet in tribute to the Basketball legend, who passed away in a helicopter crash in California earlier this year. The Australian racer will begin his second season with the Renault F1 team in his home country during the GP of Australia on March 15. Ricciardo finished in 9th position last season.
