The Joe Wicks Podcast
22. Daniel Ricciardo: I love the rush
Monday, 12 July
The UK’s favourite fitness coach is back with series two of his podcast. This summer, Joe will be speaking to inspirational friends and some of his favourite people to ask them what they do to keep themselves feeling mentally and physically strong in the face of life’s little challenges. It might be going for a new personal best on the running machine or cosying up with a good book; every guest will share the one thing that works for them in the hope it might inspire you to try something new.
If you're getting excited for the British Grand Prix this summer, you're going to love this chat with Formula 1 legend, the 'Aussie Honey Badger' himself, Daniel Ricciardo. And if you don't watch the Grand Prix, you may know him from the hit Netflix show 'Drive to Survive' which followed him and fellow F1 drivers living their lives in the fast lane, both on and off the track.
In this chat, Daniel shares what it's like to be at the top of one of the world's most competitive, and exclusive sports, and how he deals with the phenomenal pressure. The pressure to win, and the G-forces on his neck too! He takes us back to one of his most iconic victories: 2018, Monaco, with technical problems and a seriously underpowered car, Daniel managed to hold the line and cross the line in first - an incredible win. Joe and Daniel nerd-out about dirt-bikes, music and what keeps him feeling great, and he's got some great mental health tips too - when things get rough, Daniel finds that writing in a journal is the thing that keeps his thoughts in order.
This is sunshine in a podcast. Joe Wicks is here for you, and he won’t stop until you’re fit and happy.
