Hey, Lewis Hamilton: while you're getting ready to fire off sad tweets about your hot ex-girlfriend, Daniel Ricciardo is coming for your ass, starting with your Top Gear "Star in a Reasonably Priced Car" record.

On last night's episode, the Aussie Red Bull driver set a record 1:42.2 lap time in the Suzuki Liana — or as we call it in America, nothing, because Suzukis aren't sold here anymore — putting him at the top of the show's Formula One leaderboard.

Ricciardo's time puts him .7 seconds ahead of Hamilton, nearly a full second ahead of Mark Webber, and almost two seconds quicker than Sebastian Vettel. The kid's got moves.

I haven't seen the episode yet, but ESPN F1 reports that the always-affable Ricciardo said he felt better than his win in Canada during the 2014 season. He also gave the finger to an audience heckler who asked him "What does the back of Lewis' car look like?", which is kind of hilarious.

Maybe we'll be asking Hamilton what the back of Ricciardo's car looks like this year.
