    Hi. I’m Daniel Ricciardo. You may know me from last year’s Formula 1 season, and a good first grand prix in Melbourne. After the race, we went out and celebrated. We all had a few drinks and had a good time, and afterwards, it was time to go home. Even though I have a superlicense, I know when it’s time to leave the driving to someone else. So please everyone, let’s keep improving motor safety; don’t drink and drive. Take a cab!

  75. “Just bought the car that seb’s done the most miles in this year!”

  76. “I hope your fuel flow rate is upto FIA standards”

  77. It’ll do how much on the urban cycle?, you must be joking mate, I wouldn’t trust what the manufacturer says!

  78. Hey! Guys! Look at this V8 taxi. That’s how proper engines are built.

  79. My other car’s not legal.

  80. I’ve seen the way these guys drive, maybe I can pick up some tips !

  81. Yeah, go on Charlie (Whiting), run. Thought I wouldn’t catch up with you before you slipped away from the circuit in a cab, eh.

  83. Daniel – “Mr.Cab driver, does you fare meter work on distance covered or fuel consumed?”

  84. “i am so driving this taxi next race if its fuel flow is working properly”

  85. “Well this hasn’t got a Renault engine or a fuel flow monitor so change the colour scheme and I’ll keep this upgrade for the rest of the season”

  86. NO Daniel ! When they said your meter wasn’t working, they meant the one in the OTHER car !!!

  87. Daniel is going to be the next actor for Robert De Niro’s
    Taxi Driver movie Australian version.

  88. Ricciardo sets a back up career with his new song & video ‘Big Yellow Taxi’
    Don’t it always seem to go

    Ooooh, bop bop bop

  89. “Hey Seb, my taxi’s quicker than you…”
