Down the years, Daniel Ricciardo has embraced Formula 1's trip to Austin for the United States Grand Prix unlike most other drivers on the grid. Austin is the state capital of Texas and home of cowboys - with the Australian not one to miss out on the fun. This year, Ricciardo went 'full cowboy' by turning up in the paddock on Thursday for media day on horseback, accompanied by a guitar-wielding singer. Ricciardo will be hoping to emulate his 2021 finish in Austin, where he came home fifth as he heads towards what could be his final four races in F1, having accepted he will not be on the grid in '23 following his struggles this term. You can watch the video below - and yes, for those wondering, the horse did in fact have its own paddock pass.
