Formula One champion from Australia Mark Webber, who left the F1 circuit after the 2013 season, goes by the name AussieGrit on the popular social media site Twitter. Daniel Ricciardo, the man from Australia who replaced Webber in the Red Bull Racing team for Formula One, should then ideally be known as the 'AussieGrin'. The man always has a grin on his face, even when faced with difficult situations.But now that he has won the Canadian Grand Prix race, he has ample reasons to have a very wide grin!Dream, Determination, Struggle and Reward--- the four things that have gone hand in hand with Daniel Ricciardo.The DreamJuly 1, 1989 a baby was born with a giant grin on his face. Many can try, but that’s a grin that will never come off the face of Daniel Ricciardo.

In 2005, Daniel made his first debut at the age of 16 in Western Australia Formula Ford for Team Privateer, where he competed in 3 races. Towards the end of the season Ricciardo took a leased 13-year-old Van Diemen to Sandown Raceway in Melbourne to try his hand at the national Formula Ford series, but the car’s age rendered it uncompetitive as he finished 16th, 17th and retired during the weekend's three races respectively. The following year Ricciardo’s talent was noticed and was awarded a scholarship to race in Formula BMW Asian with Eurasia Motorsport where Ricardo won two races and also achieved a pole position in Zhuhai. He finished third in the Drivers' Championship with 231 points.Gradually, with his talent growing and being noticed around the Motorsports fraternity, by 2007 he was whisked away from Renault to drive in Formula Renault Italy, Formula Renault Eurocup the next year, Formula Renault WEC where he won his first championship title, Formula 3 Euro Series and British Formula 3 where he won another Championship.Read the detailed report in Motown India Launch Pad July 2014 issue.
