Daniel Ricciardo's Girlfriend Is a Daughter of a Famous F1 Driver
Daniel Ricciardo's girlfriend is Heidi Berger, the gorgeous daughter of famous F1 driver Gerhard Berger who won ten Grands Prix.
Formula 1 enthusiasts have been following the brilliant career of McLaren's Australian driver, and part of his life is the beautiful model and actress Heidi Berger.
Daniel Ricciardo's girlfriend is also connected to F1; fans of the sport have long admired her father, Gerhard Berger, who competed in the F1 championship for 14 seasons.
Daniel Ricciardo was born to Italian parents on July 1, 1989, in Perth, Australia. The young Ricciardo grew up watching his father race which fueled his ambition to become a Formula 1 driver.
He started racing karts at the age of nine, and by the time he was 19, he was driving for the Formula 3 Euro Series team. A year later, in 2010, Ricciardo moved to Formula 1 and the Red Bull Racing team.
The fans had been buzzing about a possible relationship since October 2021, but the notoriously private driver kept mum.
Known as the Honey Badger for his relentless ferocity on the track, Ricciardo has racked up eight wins, 32 placings on the podium, and 1309 career points.
Ricciardo is said to have had a relationship with Australian model Jessica Gomes and dated his former high school girlfriend, Jemma Boskovich.
Heidi Berger Is an Actress and Daniel Ricciardo's Girlfriend
Born in 1997, Heidi is the daughter of F1 Austrian driver Gerhard Berger and his ex-wife, Ana Corvo. Heidi's mom is a Portuguese model, and her dad, Gerhard, raced for Benetton, Ferrari, and McLaren from 1984 to 1997.
Like Ricciardo, Heidi grew up watching her dad race, but she followed in her mom's footsteps. Heidi's acting career took off when she was selected to star in a Portuguese soap, "A Única Mulher," in 2015 when she was 18.
Her first role was followed in 2017 by the German series, "Trakehnerblut," and in 2018 by another Portuguese production, "Onde Está Elisa," a TV series about the disappearance of a businessman's young daughter.

Like Ricciardo, Heidi grew up around race tracks and race cars. Her dad, Gerhard, raced for Benetton, Ferrari, and McLaren from 1984 to 1997, and in those years, racked up ten wins, 48 podiums, and 385 career points.
Despite never winning the championship, Gerhart was always a great favorite with race fans and a close friend and McLaren team-mate of legendary Brazilian F1 driver Ayrton Senna.
Gerhart was present at the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix in Italy in which Senna died while qualifying for the race, in the same corner where the Australian had crashed in 1989.
Gerhart is a proud dad who supports his daughter's work as an actress and a model. Gerhart and Ana divorced in 2013.

In August 2022, Ricciardo finally settled rumors that he was dating Heidi Berger to rest: he confirmed them on Instagram. The fans had been buzzing about a possible relationship since October 2021, but the notoriously private driver kept mum.
Ricciardo shared a series of snaps on Instagram and a video that showed the couple hiking in the mountains in California. On the Fitzy and Wippa podcast, Ricciardo admitted:
"I'm in love, I've got a good thing going!"
Ricciardo spoke about his relationship with Heidi's father. He revealed that he enjoys talking to Gerhart about racing and benefits from his wisdom. A good relationship with dad indicates things might be getting serious for Daniel Ricciardo and Heidi Berger.
