Michael, who has been friends with Daniel since they were both aged 12 years, shares how Formula 1 drivers deal with the pressure & negativity that comes with their profession. Michael explains the 'jet lag protocol' that he has in place for Ricciardo - to help cope with flyaway races that after held in different timezones. He also explains how drivers maintain immunity through the long racing calendars & more. 

This episode was recorded a few days before the 2022 British Grand Prix and was scheduled for a summer break release. Our regulars would remember snippets from this interview in our 2022 British Grand Prix preview episode.
