Yuki Tsunoda inspired by F1 boss to abandon 'Uber Eats' lifestyle

Japanese driver Yuki Tsunoda was inspired by 66-year-old AlphaTauri Formula One team boss Franz Tost's fitness regime to abandon his Uber Eats and video game lifestyle for a healthier routine.

The 21-year-old Formula Two graduate, heading into this second F1 season, jokingly told website The Race this week that Tost was in much better shape than him.

"Because you guys don't know how fit Franz is," Tsunoda told reporters when asked how that could be the case.

"He's running like 10km from 5.30AM which I've never done in my life.

"Also last year especially the beginning or the first half of the season I was taking pretty much everyday Uber Eats breakfast, lunch, dinner, and one hand on the game control and one hand just food.
