Daniel Ricciardo told a local at the Mexican Grand Prix that he 'looks pretty good for being dead' after bumping into somebody dressed in 'Dia de los Muertos' (Day of the Dead) fancy dress attire.
The famous Mexican festival takes place next Thursday, and a number of festivities will take place during the Mexican GP this weekend, at a track where Ricciardo has enjoyed relative success during his career.
One of his three career pole positions came at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez circuit, back in 2018 when he beat his team-mate Max Verstappen to pole, and he also achieved strong points finishes with Renault and McLaren in 2019 and 2022 respectively.
