‘When ya’ll get out, you’re just soaking wet, sweating. That’s crazy,’ she said.

‘You don’t even have time to think, ‘I’m thirsty’ or anything like that… And what if you have to pee? What if you drink before you get in the car?’ Ellen asked.

Daniel admitted: ‘It’s a question we get asked a lot, “Have you ever peed in the car?”‘

‘Everyone can relate to peeing, you need to relax. 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.’

During the interview, Ellen also asked Daniel about how fit drivers are required to be for races.

‘I drive myself to work every day and I don’t have to do this. I mean I’ll do sit ups or whatever but I don’t do what you are doing. Why do you have to be so fit?’ she asked.

Daniel explained: ‘It’s intense. You’re right, a lot of people say, “Well why do you need to be fit?” I drive my car to work every day and it’s a breeze.’

‘The races are 90 minutes long, there’s what’s called G-forces and because we corner so fast, there’s like four or five Gs on our body, and that is a force which is trying to basically pull us out of the car.

‘So we need a lot of core strength, neck strength to basically just hold on. And we can lose up to between eight to 10 pounds [3.5 to 3.5kg] in a race.’
