MILTON KEYNES, England (Reuters) – Daniel Ricciardo reckons he can take one title off Lewis Hamilton this year — and mount a proper crack at the Briton’s Formula One crown as well — after being best of the rest to Mercedes in 2014.

The smiling Australian is set to appear on the popular Top Gear television programme’s ‘star in a reasonably priced car’ competition next month, with double world champion Hamilton setting the lap record two years ago in a Suzuki Liana.
