Matter of fact, Nelson Piquet Jr. is one of Daniel’s first friends after he moved to the USA for racing. Daniel only spoke Spanish which made him difficult to communicate.

I couldn’t really communicate with a lot of people because I only spoke Spanish, so at the time the only people I was able to get along with spoke Spanish or something similar. I used to hang out a lot with Nelson Piquet and some Brazilian drivers" Suarez said.
