Performance Coach to Formula 1 Driver | Michael Italiano

It's well known that F1 drivers are some of the fittest athletes in the world, but how do they train and what do they eat?
What I didn't know was that necks, shoulders, and an athlete's overall core is under tremendous strain through every turn on every lap for the entire 90 minutes of a race. Drivers must therefore be strong athletes with high stamina reserves.

Daniel Ricciardo’s workout regime is a carefully constructed assortment of physical challenges designed to push his body to the limit, most notably through the core and neck. With the immense strain and pressure placed on the body during races, drivers must be at the absolute peak conditioning, and Ricciardo is a shining example of what happens when you get it right. The McLaren driver recently took out the Italian Grand Prix at Monza, his first top-of-the-podium finish since 2018 and the English marque’s first GP in nine years.

In this episode we will learn what it takes to be a peak Formula 1 driver.
