Formula 1 journeyman turned organic farmer

Pedro Diniz raced in Formula 1 from 1995 to 2000, with only two fifth-place finishes to show for his 98-race spell as a Grand Prix driver. But whatever happened to the Brazilian driver?

The son of a wealthy supermarket owner, Pedro returned home after his F1 career and joined the family's prosperous distribution business.

Eventually however, he transformed the family estate into Fazenda da Toca, a large-scale organic farm in Brazil’s São Paulo state, and one of the country’s leading producers of organic eggs, dairy, and fruit.
