Ricciardo collects Lorenzo Bandini trophy
1 September 2014 – Daniel Ricciardo collected the Trofeo Lorenzo Bandini at a ceremony in Brisighella, Italy on Sunday.
The trophy, awarded annually to a driver or person involved in motorsport for a commendable performance, is a tribute to former Ferrari driver Lorenzo Bandini, who was killed in a crash at the 1967 Monaco Grand Prix.
Ricciardo stepped up to Red Bull this season after two campaigns with junior squad Toro Rosso, claiming his maiden Formula 1 victory at the Canadian Grand Prix before adding to his win tally in Hungary and Belgium.
Previous winners of the trophy include Jacques Villeneuve, Luca di Montezemolo, Jenson Button, Michael Schumacher, Kimi Räikkönen, Fernando Alonso, Sebastian Vettel, Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg.
Last year, the Trofeo Lorenzo Bandini was awarded to Piero Ferrari, the son of Enzo Ferrari.
