A young Euro traveller has revealed her wild night with Aussie F1 star Daniel Ricciardo nearly two years ago.

Sara Ayter has taken to social media to share a number of videos to highlight how she fortuitously ran into F1 star Ricciardo, who she described as "the sweetest man on earth."

But at first, the young woman didn't know who the F1 star was.

Ayter was travelling Barcelona two years ago, on the island of Formentera, when she was taking photos of the scenery.

This is when three guys approached her group and asked if they wanted to travel back to Ibiza on their private boat.

“We were taking pictures in Beso Beach, and three guys came up to us and said they were going back to Ibiza on their private boat and asked us if we wanted to join,” Ayter said.

“On our way to the private boat me and my friends got scared because there were like nine guys and we were three girls, and we were in the middle of the ocean with no connection. 

"But they were so nice, they were dancing all the time, they let us play us some music, they gave us drinks.”

The three girls were going to head to a party, when they decided to join the guys back at the house.

“We ended up going to their house, we thought it was going to a huge party or something, with a lot of girls but we were the only ones there, it was the best house I’ve ever been to.”

This is when Ayter realised she could have been partying with a well-known celebrity.

Ayter noticed Ricciardo had a 'blue tick' next to his name on social media and realised who she was sharing drinks with.

“We had drinks, we played games, we stayed over,” she added.

“The day after I was swimming in the pool and Daniel was the only one awake. I was cold and he asked me if I wanted his shirt, so I swam with his shirt.”

Ayter praises Daniel Ricciardo

Ayter confirmed why so many around the world adore the F1 star after she claimed he was extremely 'nice' and had a 'huge heart'.

“He was the entire time making sure we were all right. They were all so, so nice. He was the coolest human,” she said.

“Daniel was the entire time dancing, making jokes, smiling. Like he has a huge heart.

“Now we finally know who he is. He’s Daniel Ricciardo, but first of all he’s an amazing human.”

"We didn't know who he was. Sweetest man on earth."

Ricciardo was driving for Renault in 2019, but has since debuted for McLaren and enjoyed his best finish of the season in sixth at the Spanish GP.
