I’m talking about Dax Shepard Armchair expert On the podcast, Ricciardo spoke about his personal life in a way he has seldom done before.
Ricciardo admitted that he likes going to events early to get to know new places and asked some quicker questions over the race weekend.
The questioning began about his drinking habits.
“I’m not a big drinker, but did I have a beer or a glass of wine before a race, like on a Saturday night? Of course I have, ”he said. “I wouldn’t do it out of habit. It usually happens when the weekend hasn’t gone too well and I just need to switch off a bit. But usually, if everything goes according to plan for what it’s got this year, it’s probably a Wednesday. We don’t go to the club on Wednesday evening, there is a little cognac. I’m pretty disciplined, I enjoy having a good time, but I think race week is pretty cold for me. ”
But the conversation then turned to sex, with Shepard pointing out some athletes who forego sex before big games or races.
“Before, but no longer,” Ricciardo admitted. “I obviously broke my rules once and I was probably even better on Sunday, so everything is fine. I threw that out a few years ago. ”
Overall, Ricciardo said he was “anti-superstition”.
“I think it’s a sign of fear, not fear, but that you are already putting a sign of doubt in your own head,” he said. “It’s kind of an excuse that something goes wrong.
“It’s easy to be unaccountable when you have superstition. It’s like, ‘I had a bad race because I didn’t put my left sock on first’. I could wipe the reality of why I had a bad race because I didn’t put my sock on properly.
“I do not like it. If that was my tradition and I forgot and jump into a car that goes 200 mph, is that good for my headspace? You can’t sneak in something like that. ”
It’s the focus Ricciardo has been driving in F1 since 2011.
But he admitted that the intensity of the sport and his hunt for an elusive world championship didn’t help his personal life and relationships.
“It’s certainly difficult when you’re so driven,” Ricciardo admitted. “Me for example, yes, I made it to F1, that was a childhood dream and even I still pinch myself, but you get there and it’s like it’s not enough. I have to win, I have to be world champion.
“I’ve won races now, but I’m not a world champion yet, so I’m still not satisfied. I’ve been doing F1 for 10 years so I’m always looking for more of this and putting myself first and being selfish. It’s difficult and you have to shut things out along the way and that is people and sometimes relationships. It’s about finding that balance.
“I know some drivers have wives and children and I wonder how do you do that with a family? The danger on the one hand and then just devoting everything you can to sport, but also to devoting time to your family. I’m not there yet, I don’t know how to do it. I’m still in the moment just to get the best out of myself and I think what I’m doing is work so I’ll keep going down this path. I will wait for kids for a while I think. “
