Red Bull racing's Daniel Ricciardo has got himself in the mood for the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix by partaking in a spot of belly dancing.
In the video, which comes to you by way of Andre Vreman's Twitter page, we see Ricciardo taking dance tuition from an eastern lady, that begins with a bout of promiscuous shoulder shaking.
The professional dancer then switches into a backwards moving motion while shaking her hips from side to side, with the Australian mirroring her every move.

The video then cuts to a clip showing one of Ricciardo's Red Bull teammates glaring at him with a look of sheer disbelief on his face.
The dancer and driver then share in some more shoulder and hip shaking, before the teacher then teases her student with an advanced chest and belly wobble, which upon the two realising that the move is way beyond the skill set of the Red Bull man, forces them into fits of laughter.
This is not the first time the 27-year-old has appeared in the media behaving in a playful manner.
He was filmed ahead of the US Grand Prix speaking in a thick Texan accent for the full duration of an interview for Sky Sports, as well as posting pictures to his Instagram account of him wearing full cowboy attire on horseback at a Texan ranch.
He featured again in the media after he took part in an interview sporting full skeletal face paint for Halloween.

Ricciardo will go into the final race of the 2016 season occupying third position in the Driver's Championship. But, the fact that he trails second-placed Lewis Hamilton by 109 points, and leads Ferrari's fourth-placed driver Sebastian Vettel by 49 points, the outcome of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix will have no impact on his final position.
That being said, a Grand Prix is a Grand Prix, and Ricciardo will be doing his utmost to win the race.
However, his and all the other drivers' performances can still have an impact on the Driver's Championship because Nico Roberg still needs to place inside the top three to ensure that he will be crowned World Champion, irrelevant as to whether or not Hamilton wins in the desert.
