Your body ached for sleep as you made your way through the long halls located in the main building of the uni. Today had been draining, to say the least. From having your assignment pushed to an earlier date, to spilling hot tea all over yourself, the week could not seem to come to an end quickly enough.
The second your last lecture had come to a close, you found yourself rushing to get back home for some much needed sleep and downtime with your man. Being a full time student and the girlfriend of a famous F1 driver did not come easy. On one hand, you were physically stuck to one place trying to obtain your masters, while on the other your heart was wherever Daniel found himself.
Whether he was in the same city, or thousands of miles away, you were constantly wanting to be close to him. Even if this sounded kind of pathetic, having Dan gone for such long periods of time left you craving his presence more with each passing race season. They do, after all, say that absence makes the heart grow fonder.
As you finally unlocked the door to your shared apartment, you soaked in the late afternoon sun that fell into the quint living space. While Daniel made enough money to buy a house or a much larger apartment - something he strongly considered doing once you both started living together - you liked the cozy feel this apartment provided. While it was not as massive as some of the apartments one could find in Monaco, it certainly held enough space to get around and host family and friends from time to time.
After changing into clothes that weren’t covered in spilled herbal tea, you made your way to the balcony to indulge in the last bit of warmth the now setting sun provided. Living within a decent distance from the ocean meant the constant presence of white noise created by the ever rising and crashing of waves as they spread towards the shore. The sound provided some relief to the stress collected throughout the day, but nothing compared to the feeling the two strong arms that suddenly wrapped around you gave.
Aside from his muscular build, Daniel’s scent was all too familiar at this point for you to question who the intruder was that knocked you out of your dream-like state. You simply responded to his touch by reaching your arm up to run your fingers through his seemingly messy curls. He sighed in response to the sensation your fingers created on his scalp, squeezing your waist lovingly.
Peaceful silence fell upon you both as you stood and admired the scene of the sun disappearing behind the city and the lights of buildings beginning to flicker on at a steady pace. The serenity of the moment made your heart swell as you looked into the beyond and felt your lover’s lips meet the skin on your neck in a soft kiss. Just like that, a bad week was forgotten and the promise of a better tomorrow began to make itself known.
As the street lights began to shimmer in a now dark Monte Carlo, you finally turned around to meet your partner’s gaze. His brown orbs became a honey-gold as the light from the balcony reflected on his long face. Though he looked even more tired and run down than you felt, you still considered him the most handsome man you ever had the privilege of knowing and loving.
‘Hey, beautiful.’ he finally spoke while caressing your cheek with his large hand.
‘Hey, handsome.’ you replied and pecked his lips in what felt like a long awaited kiss.
‘How was your day?’ he questioned with tired eyes, the race season clearly having an effect on him not only emotionally, but also physically.
‘Could have been better, but enough about me. How was training with Michael?’ you tried to revert his question to avoid laying any more baggage on him than he already had to carry, but Daniel was having none of that.
‘Nope. No avoiding the question. Tell me what happened.’ he insisted and you sighed while pulling him towards the living room. You sat down and he moved you into his side, kissing your forehead to show you he was there and that he cared to hear about what was troubling you.
‘It was just one of those days in which nothing seemed to go right. Classes ran longer than intended, my big assignment is due a week early, and I singlehandedly managed to spill an entire cup of boiling tea all over myself.’ he began to chuckle at your last statement and you groaned and began moving away from him to show your frustration
‘Baby, no. I’m sorry, I’m sorry.’ he pleaded while pulling you close enough to have you land in his lap. You tried to fight him but the bastard had a firm grip on you. ‘I didn’t mean to laugh, but you know how comical I find your clumsiness.’
You tried to maintain a serious and pissed exposure, but as soon as you turned to face him you felt a small smile begin to creep up on your face. ‘There’s my girl.’ he grinned victoriously and you punched his arm lightly.
‘You’re an idiot.’ you giggled and moved to fit more comfortably on his lap so you could nuzzle your face into his chest.
‘I’m your idiot.’ he objected while cuddling you closer to him, leaving little room for separation between your bodies.
‘I wouldn’t have it any other way.’ you sighed as his fingers ran up and down your arm in a soothing manner. Silence surrounded you once again, but soon after he spoke up, sounding more serious and collected than before.
‘Look, I know this year has been hard on the both of us. You are working your pretty little but off to obtain your masters, while I am still adjusting to the struggles that come with working in a new team and driving a new car. Not to mention the fact that we haven’t seen either of our families in god knows how long. But I don’t want you to forget that we are in this struggle together. I know I can be a hard ass sometimes and I struggle to open up, but I never want you to forget how much I love you and that I’m always here - whether it be a few meters or thousands of miles away. I’m so sorry if I haven’t lived up to this promise enough in the past.’
The sadness in his voice made your chest ache, and you sat up instantly to cradle his face in your hands. ‘Now you listen to me, Ricciardo. There is never a moment that I doubt your love for me or the investment you have in our relationship. Yes, distance does not always make it easy to communicate the things that are better said in person, but that doesn’t mean you are never there. Hell, you panic when I answer our nightly FaceTime calls a second too late. The reason I have not lost my marbles yet completely is because you are there every step of the way, cheering me on. I love you, idiot, and I cannot imagine taking on the bad days with anyone else.’
Daniel stared at you lovingly, and you could have sworn you saw tears begin to collect in his eyes. You could not judge him, however, as you were now a complete sobbing mess. The love you felt for him along with all the stresses that culminated over the last few months left you in a puddle of tears and vulnerability.
‘Oh, hun. I love you so much. I couldn’t have asked for a better side kick either.’ he wiped away your tears and pulled you into a kiss that radiated nothing but love and endless care.
After you both pulled away, he cuddled you back into his chest. ‘Hold me a little closer.’ you mumbled into his chest before he held you tighter than ever.
You fell asleep in Daniel’s arms that night with not a care in the world. Every little worry about what the future held seemed to slip away as he kept you in his warm embrace. While there was no guarantee that the bad days would end at that point, the rocky shores of life were no match for the love and comfort waiting for you in the arms of the man who had no intention of letting you go.
I hope you guys enjoyed this imagine.

#the idea of they were so ahead of the game they invented the new genre themselves #but people don't want to cotton on to that because they like safety #even on here its yeah watch formula e but it's not. formula 1 so it's just. a weekend thing that they dont post about full time #and it's sort of a 'joke series to most people' when it shouldnt be. #but i see why. people fear things they dont know. new rules. new drivers. actual racing. #so they can miss out its okay. #idk if you want serious or comedy so i've gone for both ! #tldr answer: formula e invented the new game. no one's ready for it. #also dont go on twitter or instagram comments because people are hateful just because cars dont have engines
I don’t like all the hate that DTS gets but I’m rewatching season 2 and I realised they never mentioned what happened to Seb in Canada?? Like the only time they mention that race is talking about RENAULT???!!?!! Like what happened deserved a full episode to itself wtf??
I really don't understand the cool thing about this situation and most people in F1 are exited for more clashes!? What was so funny and cool about Max flying in to the barrier at 280km/h? And this kind of interviews is just nah🙄
