The Edge is a series of conversations with extraordinary people operating at the edge of possibility.
It’s about the thin line between taking part and tipping into victory; it’s about what gives us our edge and what we can do to go beyond it.
Let's catch up with Sergio Perez, the young Mexican Formula 1 driver currently driving for Red Bull Racing.

In this episode, Sergio shares his personal wisdom about learning from mistakes, setting your sights on the future, and always enjoying an adrenaline rush.

In this truly inspirational conservation the Frenchman talks about sports therapy, the eternal quest for well-being, and Le Grand Bleu.
