Aussie McLaren driver Daniel Ricciardo has all but appeared to confirm rumours that he is dating Heidi Berger after posting photos on his Instagram of the duo on holiday.
Rumours started swirling last year that the Aussie was dating the aspiring actress and daughter of former F1 driver Gerhard Berger.
Ricciardo has always kept his private life to himself and rarely sharing photos of his girlfriends on social media.
However, in a startling move, the Australian posted photos of himself and Berger on social media.
The photos included the duo on a hiking trip in California.
Berger also took to Instagram and posted a video of Ricciardo on the hiking trip.
"Heidi got taken out of her comfort zone," she wrote with the video.
Berger is currently studying at New York University.
Rumours started about the pair when they were reportedly spotted in New York together last year.
They were also captured in a video taking a helicopter ride together in June last year.

Ricciardo's last public relationship was with his high school sweetheart Jemma Boskovich, before they broke up in 2016.
The F1 driver has also been previously linked to Perth-raised model Jessica Gomes, neither one of whom confirmed whether they were dating.
Daniel Ricciardo's F1 drama continues
While Ricciardo appears to be enjoying his holiday in the US, drama continues to swirl around his position at McLaren.
Ricciardo hasn't enjoyed the best season at McLaren with only four Top-10 finishes in 2022.
The Australian sits on 19 points in the Championship race with teammate Lando Norris scoring the lion's share of McLaren's points.
In more drama, young Aussie star Oscar Piastri has been linked with McLaren for 2023.
Pisatri, who won F3 and F2 titles in back to back seasons with the backing of McLaren rivals Alpine, turned his back on Alpine despite a bizarre announcement he would be taking the available seat in 2023 thanks to the sudden departure of Fernando Alonso.
His public statement declaring he would not be driving for Alpine in 2023 lead to him being linked to McLaren for next season, amid countryman Ricciardo's continued struggles with the team.
McLaren's only option for opening up a race seat for Piastri would be buying Ricciardo out of his contract, a proposition which could set the team back as much as $21 million.
