Daniel Ricciardo made an explosive start of the United States Grand Prix over the weekend, angry hitting a wall after a forced mechanical withdrawal.
The Australian F1 driver, originally from Perth, had to retire prematurely on lap nine in the race in Austin, Texas, another crushing blow for his season of horror.
His frustration was no surprise since it was his. Fifth premature start in 10 races, reported news.com.au.

"He just pulled his frustration out of his room by putting his fist through the wall, which he can totally relate to," said Red Bull team boss Christian Horner.
"It was a problem identical to the one I had in Bahrain, where it was completely closed." It's a real shame for Daniel, I'm so sorry for him.
Ricciardo's teammate, Max Verstappen, managed to finish in second place, while the Finnish rider Kimi Räikkönen was the first.
Ricciardo will race three more times before his tumultuous association with Red Bull ends and he joins Renault, where he will earn three times his current salary.
Ricciardo's teammate, Max Verstappen, managed to reach the grid from 18th to finish second, while Finnish rider Kimi Räikkönen finished first.
The 29-year-old signed a two-year secret contract with the French team, which will earn him more than $ 35 million a year starting next season.
Mr. Horner made a subtle blow to Ricciado's future employer after the race, noting that it was Renault that supplied the engines to the Red Bull cars.
"I'm sure he will talk to his future employers about this because it's very frustrating to lose him in the races." "He does not blame the team in any way, he knows we're doing everything we can, it's just one of those things," he said.
