Ricciardo praises Brazil atmosphere: It gets me pumped for the race

The Formula One season is drawing ever closer to its finale as the drivers head to Brazil for the penultimate race of the season. Daniel Ricciardo believes that the atmosphere in Brazil plays a major part in making it such a great weekend.

Going into the last two races, the Australian is ninth in the drivers' standings but is unlikely to move up any higher as he is 31 points behind Pierre Gasly in the standings.

"I really like the atmosphere in Brazil. It's a cool one as the locals love racing, and they really embrace it when it comes to their town," Ricciardo said in Renault's race preview.

"There's a Samba-like, carnival feels to the place and I like the energy that brings.

"The drivers' parade on Sunday is one of the loudest of the season and gets you pumped for the race."

The 30-year-old finished fourth at the Brazillian Grand Prix last year and will be hoping to start a promising end to the season.
