Before getting down to work at the Circuit of the Americas for the US Grand Prix this weekend, yesterday Daniel Ricciardo put in a full shift of a different kind, earning his keep on the Nelson Ranch in La Grange, 100 miles South East of Austin.
Daniel’s enthusiasm for all things Texas is well known, and he didn’t take much persuadin’ to pull on the cowboy gear and get his hands dirty out in the fields.
“I had a great time,” said Daniel. “I honestly enjoy a bit of the Outback and a few of my mates back home have farms. Once the F1 season ends and I go home for Christmas, I’ll usually have a few days out there riding bikes all day and drinking beer in the evenings.”
“Today was a little bit harder because I was actually working! Still very cool though – nice to experience something so different to what we normally do.”
