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.
