The Red Bull driver was at Guyi Gardens in Nanxiang where he completed a light martial arts workout with local expert Yang.

Ricciardo went through various stretching exercises, followed by high kicks and flat palm exercises in front of a gathering crowd.

"I really enjoy martial arts from both the sporting perspective and also the movement of the body. It's very cool to see the human body flow the way it does in these routines.

I've got a lot of respect for the practitioners," said the Australian.
