Watch reporter get F1 star Daniel Ricciardo’s name horribly wrong at Red Bull car launch | The Sun

A RED BULL launch took place in New York last night ahead of the 2023 Formula One season.

But co-host Giselle Zarur was left with egg on her face after she pronounced Daniel Ricciardo's name horribly wrong live on Sky Sports.

With the Aussie standing there ready to be interviewed, she welcomed him to his new team.

But Giselle made an almighty error.

She said: "Welcome one of the friendliest drivers in the F1 grid, Daniel Retardo, to Oracle Reb Bull Racing."

Giselle didn't realise her mistake, while Ricciardo stood there awkwardly as she continued to speak.
