Australian earns his keep on a ranch ahead of the US Grand Prix in Austin

October 24, 2016 Lifestyle No Comments Email Email

Daniel Ricciardo got a taste of ranch life this week before he swaps his cowboy hat for his Red Bull Racing helmet.


Before getting down to work at the Circuit of the Americas for the US Grand Prix this weekend, 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.”
