Race Driver Max used a heat chamber to prepare for the conditions in Malaysia this weekend, says the UK’s Independent.

The story gives an insight into Max’s training routine.

The heat training, he says takes place in a room that feels like a lab in which they can adjust the heat.

“So you train in there for an hour and a half, cycling for 40 minutes and then a run for 30 to 40 depending on how I’m feeling.

“I did a session every week throughout the winter, but we upped the heat for this week because it is a pretty tough race.

“You can make it as hot as you can, but I put it up to 33 (degrees centigrade) because that is what it is going to be this weekend.

“I train in there for around 90 minutes, a bit less than a race distance because you are actually working harder in there than you do in the car.
