Daniel Ricciardo's ex-girlfriend Jemma Boskovich has found love again with Supercars driver Andre Heimgartner.

Ricciardo and Boskovich were high school sweethearts and were still together for the early part of his Formula One career.

The couple lived together in Monaco before going their separate ways in 2016.

But Boskovich has now found love again with another professional driver.

The Perth local told The Daily Telegraph on Friday that she's in a long-distance relationship with Kiwi driver Heimgartner, who lives in Melbourne.

Heimgartner drives for Kelly Grove Racing in the Supercars Championship.

“We met through a mutual friend in New Zealand and have been together two or three months,” Boskovich told The Daily Telegraph.

Heimgartner added: “We got chatting through a mutual friend and it sort of went from there.

“Some people you get on well with, some you don’t. She is very understanding. 

"Jemma is a very nice person, so it works out well.”

Heimgartner, 26, won his first race in Supercars at The Bend in South Australia earlier this month.

Boskovich has been running her own jewellery business - Lost In Lace - since 2017.

Daniel Ricciardo struggles in Monaco practice

Meanwhile, Charles Leclerc sped from last to first on his home town streets to lead a stunning Ferrari one-two in a red-flagged second Monaco Grand Prix practice on Thursday.

The 23-year-old Monegasque, born and bred in the Mediterranean principality, lapped the metal-fenced layout with a best time of one minute 11.684 seconds in Thursday's afternoon session.

Leclerc managed only four laps in the morning before being sidelined by a gearbox problem that left him bottom of those timesheets.

Spanish teammate Carlos Sainz was second fastest, 0.112 slower, with Mercedes' seven-times world champion Lewis Hamilton third as Formula One returned to Monaco after two years' absence due to COVID-19.

Red Bull's Max Verstappen, 14 points adrift of Hamilton after four races, was fourth fastest.

Ricciardo came home 15th in both sessions, well behind his McLaren teammate Lando Norris, who was seventh in the first session and sixth in the afternoon.

The afternoon session was stopped five minutes early after Mick Schumacher hit the barriers sideways at Massenet and parked up after going through the tunnel, with the Haas needing to be removed.
