Daniel Ricciardo has cheekily fooled fans after being roasted for what appeared to be a poor example of geography knowledge from the Aussie F1 star.
Ricciardo has been on holiday in the United States during the season break, taking time off before he gets back behind the wheel this year in new colours.
It seems though that wherever he goes, Ricciardo is taking his humour along with him and some of his fans fell for his latest gag.

Ricciardo posted a selfie behind the famous Hollywood sign in Los Angeles on Instagram and captioned the photo: ‘The Big Apple. Wow. What a place.’
It had many supporters confused, with some seemingly to think that Ricciardo made an embarrassing blunder.
“Lol wrong side of the country,” one wrote… “That’s Hollywood Daniel,” wrote another.
But many pointed out that instead of being an example of Ricciardo’s poor geography knowledge, it was simply just a case of Daniel being Daniel.
You see, Ricciardo has admitted before that regardless of how “business-like” the F1 is, he will always maintain his relaxed, larrikin personality.
“That’s me, that’s who I am,” he told Rolling Stone last year.
“I wasn’t aware going into F1 it was so business-like and formal and strict, it felt very stiff to me, it wasn’t my personality.
“Once I started to get more comfortable in my sport and its surroundings I thought, let’s try make this place a fun place.”
Naturally, fans who knew this side of Ricciardo’s personality were quick to point to out this was just another example of the F1 star not taking life too seriously.
“How are so many people taking this seriously?,” one wrote.
“Lovely accent , New Jersey?,” American racing driver Marco Andretti sarcastically replied in the comments.
