Daniel Ricciardo has set the fastest ever time as Top Gear's 'Star in a Reasonably Priced Car'.

The BBC show puts celebrities in everyday cars, with F1 drivers making occasional appearances in a Suzuki Liana to set a time against each other in the same car. Each driver gets a number of attempts at completing a lap of the Top Gear test track, with the fastest time being recorded.

Lewis Hamilton previously held the record with a 1:42.9s lap time, 0.2s quicker than Mark Webber and a huge 1.1s clear of Sebastian Vettel. Ricciardo, however, went fastest overall with a 1:42.2s - a time presenter Jeremy Clarkson described as "staggering" - setting the same time on two other occasions.

"This is how I felt after Canada, I didn't know what to say!" Ricciardo said.
