Daniel Ricciardo has pulled the curtain back on one of the more delicate problems of Formula One racing.

While on Ellen promoting the Netflix docu-series Formula 1: Drive to Survive, the Perth lad was asked what happens if he needed a mid-race loo break.

Laughing, Ricciardo said he gets the ‘have you ever peed in the car?’ question a lot.

“Everyone can relate to peeing, you need to relax,” he said. “And it’s hard to relax driving at those speeds.

“I’ve never done it. If you have to go, you just painfully hold on until the end, but every bump, every little kerb you hit hurts.”

Ooof.
