'As cold as hard tyres in winter testing...'

Charles Leclerc lives in sunny and warm Monte Carlo which perhaps adds to the glacial challenge of undergoing a session of cryotherapy.

F1 drivers and athletes use the -120 degree Celsius cold compression chamber as a biting two-minute post-exercise recovery procedure that helps relax overworked muscles.

Leclerc posted on Instagram a picture taken during his most recent icy session with the caption, "It's cold".

One Lewis Hamilton was quick to respond, asking the Ferrari driver: "How cold?"

Leclerc offered his Mercedes rival the perfect reply:

"@lewishamilton as cold as the hard tyres in Barcelona winter testing 🥶"

Darn, that is cold!
