Daniel Ricciardo endured a disappointing day in qualifying for the Turkish Grand Prix on Saturday – but life isn't currently all bad for the Australian F1 star.
The McLaren driver, who at the Italian Grand Prix last month secured his eighth F1 win, and the team's first since 2012, could only finish 16th after a rain-affected session. Teammate Lando Norris meanwhile, will start Sunday's race seventh on the grid.
Ricciardo currently sits eighth in the drivers' standings and will need to perform well to improve that position tomorrow, but when it comes to properties, the former Red Bull man is right up there challenging the elite.
Ricciardo already owns an apartment in Monte Carlo, as well as a luxury home down under in his native Perth.
Since 2018 however, he has also added a £10million Beverly Hills mansion to his portfolio.
Realtor.com have since shared the photos of the pad, originally built in the 1960's, and the images showcase five luxury bedrooms, five and a half bathrooms, and a two-door garage.
The 32-year-old first had the idea to buy a home in Los Angeles after travelling to America to visit his cousin in 2014, later saying the city "immediately resonated well with me," before deciding to splash out.
"The weather, having the beaches close by, I feel like you can escape the madness of it all," he told the West Australian .
Does Daniel Ricciardo own the best house of any sportsman or woman? Let us know in the comments section.
'The Honey Badger' usually opts to spend the off-season at his home in the States, and it's easy to understand why.
The house boasts a glassy bedroom with sitting area and fireplace, a walnut closet, and a master bath with wood and stone accents, dual vanities, and a spacious soaking tub.
Outside the master bedroom is a massive outdoor deck – where Ricciardo can relax by utilising the loungers and soaking up the rays from the Californian sunshine.
Let's not forget a modern kitchen, fitted with Miele appliances, and a sub-zero fridge either.
If that wasn't enough, he can also enjoy incredible views of the Pacific Ocean and Coldwater Canyon.
As an F1 star, it is likely Ricciardo isn't short of takers when he invites guests round either.
Just as well then, that the house offers a huge terrace to entertain guests, as well as a sun deck and a pool and jacuzzi.
So whether Ricciardo can recover from a tough day tomorrow or not, and regardless of how this season culminates for him, it seems he's still going to be pretty relaxed before the hard graft starts for the 2022 campaign.
