#20 // LOUIS DELETRAZ
#21 // ANTONIO FUOCO
Describe your teammate in one word.
Antonio: Nice guy.
Louis: That’s two!
If your teammate was a superhero, who would they be?
Louis: Batman! To be honest, I don’t really watch those…
Antonio: Same for me, I only know one!
If you could steal one quality from your teammate, which one would it be?
Louis: [laughs] I didn’t work a lot on it! He’s a very calm guy…I was going to say haircut as well, but I cannot any more!
Antonio: I was lucky.
Louis: Can I come back to that one later?
Antonio: I will keep “haircut”.
F2: Do you just get out of bed and it’s like that?
Louis: Pretty much! I just make sure it’s not in my way.
Who needs the longest warm-up before jumping in the car?
Louis: We do a bit, but not too much. I think we’re equal.
Antonio: Yeah. Our routine is quite similar really.
Louis: Just a short warm-up to…well, get the body warm! We don’t need like, twenty minutes doing push-ups and sprints…
Antonio: …not running five kilometres when we get out of the car!
Who talks the most at the briefings?
Antonio: [immediately] Me!
Louis: Do you mean the briefing with the team?
F2: Ah, yes…
Antonio: Then it’s me. In the driver briefing with the race director, I say nothing…
Louis: I’d agree with that.
F2: What sort of things do you discuss?
Louis: We’re as precise as possible…
F2: Do you have your own briefings with your engineers, or do you share some things…
Antonio: We share everything.
Louis: Yeah, everyone comes back to the centre. We don’t work on the same side of the table but in the end, everything is shared. It’s a new team so it’s very important.
At which concert would you take your teammate to?
Antonio: Justin Bieber! Actually, I saw something last year with Charles (Leclerc) and said it for the celebrity girlfriend question, who was that…but I’ll say something different.
Louis: I’ll take you to Britney Spears. If you’re taking me to Justin Bieber, then there’s no present here!
Who is the most active on social media?
Antonio: Definitely Louis, I think.
F2: Do you not really have time for it?
Antonio: No, it’s not my thing…
Louis: You just post the results of where you are, that’s all you do.
F2: Do you have someone else handling that for you?
Antonio: No, it’s just me, that’s why I post nothing!
Louis: I think it’s better to do it small and do it good than too much and do it bad.
Antonio: I don’t like to put everything on Instagram, or always write what I’m doing…like, if I’m on the toilet or something!
Louis: That’s a shame…
Which one of you is the most successful with the ladies?
Antonio: Well, we never went out together…
Louis: No, we’ve never been out!
Antonio: Maybe we can find out at the end of the year!
F2: Not even in Monaco?
Antonio: Yeah, after Monaco!
Louis: I have to say the Italians are usually the best with this, I don’t judge too quickly but I don’t think Antonio would be too bad…
What’s the one place (country, restaurant, club,…) you’d recommend your teammate to go to on their spare time?
Louis: Did you already go to Australia?
Antonio: No. Did you go to Ibiza?
Antonio: There we go!
Louis: There’s a lot of things to do in Australia…party, see kangaroos. Antonio could ride the kangaroos! I think we don’t need to ask for what to do in Ibiza…
What’s the best advice you have for your teammate for this season?
Louis: Stay the same guy he is, because he’s a good guy.
Antonio: Yeah, the same, he’s quite a good guy.
