Styles raises eyebrows often with his fashion sense. However, Styles’s apparent affiliation to an Australian F1 driver was surprising even by his standards.
It turns out that the two of them share a common bond in the form a mutual acquaintance.
Ricciardo was quizzed about the image of Styles wearing a vintage-type T-shirt which appears to no longer be among the current range of clothing on the McLaren driver’s official merchandise website.
“It’s a lot of fun, I was excited,”On the Fitzy and Wippa breakfast radio station, Nova 96.9 in Sydney, the 33-year old said these words.

“We have a mutual friend who is, let’s say, very close to me and it’s someone close to him as well, so it’s funny.
“When the picture came out on social media, the mutual friend was like ‘I can’t believe this hasn’t been picked up before because he wears the shirt all the time. He (Styles) is always in public wearing the T-shirt’.”
Ricciardo was then asked if the mutual friend had ever arranged for him to hang out with Styles, to which he replied: “I want to lie to you and say yes, we’ve met many times and had a few beers together.
“I haven’t met him yet. It makes it even better because he’s a fan before he’s even met me, right?”

Styles, also an actor who appeared in the recent movie Don’t Worry Darling, is not the only incongruous recent wearer of a Ricciardo garment.
Another example is George RussellThe photo of a white sweatshirt by Enchante was taken by Jeremy, who was at the Dutch Grand Prix wearing it. It is available on the Ricciardo merch site.
It turned out Russell’s girlfriend had found his McLaren rival’s online shop, liked the items she saw there and so it was arranged for her to receive some samples.
“I’ll give you the story, it’s a feelgood story, one for the grandkids,” said Ricciardo. “He won’t mind me saying this.
“So he texted me one Friday night and it was a picture of his girlfriend on the couch looking up the RIC3 shop. He was like ‘mate, what’s going on?’
“And I was like ‘tell me what she likes, I’ll send her a few things’. So we sent her a few things.
“I guess one of them actually fits George, so he decided to wear it.
“It’s good, George is a good lad. I like the kid!”
