If there’s one thing on Australian racer 22 year old Daniel Ricciardo’s mind, it’s Bollywood actor Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. “I still remember her in Bride and Prejudice. And, I’ve heard a lot about her American films. She’s really pretty. If I get a chance, I would like to meet her when I’m here for the Grand Prix,” says the 22-year-old, who is a part of the Hispania Team that’ll be competing on the Buddh International Circuit between October 28-30.
And, the foodie’s favorite Indian food is “curry”. “Whenever I think of India, I think of curry,” says Ricciardo, who feasted on Indian food at the ITC Maurya, shortly after a prelude to the Indian Grand Prix at Rajpath on Saturday.
Though his girlfriend, whose name he shies away from revealing, will not accompany him for the event, he says she’ll cheer for him on TV. “Like I would not go and spend a day at her office, it’s the same for her. When it comes to drivers, they keep their personal lives private. But some are open about it, like Lewis Hamilton is usually accompanied by Nicole Scherzinger and Jenson Button by his girlfriend,” he says.
