#18 // SÉRGIO SETTE CÂMARA
#19 // LANDO NORRIS
Describe your teammate in one word.
Lando Norris: Average… [smiles]
Sérgio Sette Câmara: Let’s say, um…
Lando: I’ve said mine, mine was easy [laughs]
If your teammate was a superhero, who would they be?
Sérgio: I don’t know that many superheroes! It’s a difficult one…I think I’ll be Superman!
Lando: You’ve called yourself Superman?
Sérgio: You could be Batman, I dunno…don’t ask me why.
Lando: You think I’d be Batman?
Sérgio: Yeah, because he doesn’t have any superpowers! [laughs] He has some things to throw and stuff…
Lando: I think Sérgio can be Deadpool.
Sérgio: It’s a good one, I like it! I’m happy with that.
If you could steal one quality from your teammate, which one would it be?
Sérgio: The other day, he started farting in the truck – it was unbelievable, it almost took me out and I was almost late for the race! So that’s a quality I’d like to have…actually, is there a skunk superhero? He would be that, Skunkman! I’m joking of course…I’ve had worse teammates with this.
Lando: One thing from Sérgio…
Sérgio: His jokes! They’re pretty good, no?
Lando: Mmm…I can’t think of anything I’d want from him.
Sérgio: Oooooh…that’s good, that’s good. I’m feeling attacked…
F2: Is there anything off-track that you could learn from Sérgio? Is he secretly a good chef or something?
Lando: No, he’s not a chef…
Sérgio: Well in the UK, all they eat is microwaved food, so even if I do anything with a pan it’s already better.
Who needs the longest warm-up before jumping in the car?
Lando: [incredulously] What?!
Sérgio: I do zero warmup!
Lando: I also do zero warmup, I get forced into it…
Sérgio: Yes, but you have a table, you do your stretches, I don’t do that…
Lando: But if I could scrap all that, and just go from bed to car I’d do it.
Sérgio: But I do less.
Lando: I get forced to do it, but if I could have my own way it’d be Sérgio. He has all these wrist warmups now, he puts this heatpad on…
Sérgio: I have all the fancy stuff! It’s just temporary, I’ll go back to my normal procedures soon…
Lando: …of nothing?
Sérgio: To be honest, if it’s cold, I like to warm up. Like at Paul Ricard, what’s the point to warm up – you just sweat. If it’s like here in Austria, I’ll warm up.
Who talks the most at the briefings?
F2: What do you usually discuss?
Sérgio: Car related things.
Lando: He covers everything.
Sérgio: I’m a man of details. I like that, and in the briefings I like to discuss a lot.
Lando: I can’t even talk…every time I’m about to say something, Sérgio’s in like “blablabla”…
At which concert would you take your teammate to?
Lando: I’d probably take him to High School Musical or something…
Sérgio: How do you know about that? You were watching it?
Lando: I watched it, everyone watched it.
Sérgio: I don’t know. I have no idea, I don’t think I’ve ever been to a concert in my life…
Lando: …or I’d take him to a Beethoven recital or something.
Sérgio: I don’t know. I think I’ll skip that one, I don’t like concert, you’re just sitting there unless you go and see a DJ…is that considered a concert?
F2: Sure, why not?
Sérgio: Then we’ll do that.
Lando: Ugh. Man, I’m taking you to Beethoven. Come on…
What does your teammate do that annoys you the most?
Sérgio: More than the farts? Hmm…
Lando: Beat him? That’s one for Sérgio to say…
Sérgio: [pauses]…ah yes, the drivers’ room. It’s so freaking disorganized, it’s like a typical teenager’s bedroom in a typical American movie, his room is a mess. His clothes go everywhere, mine’s like, fully organised so it’s definitely this. Not extremely messy, just a little bit.
Lando: I start the weekend off well. But it goes downhill very quickly.
F2: What does Sérgio do to annoy you, Lando?
Lando: Turns up.
Sérgio: [laughs] The other day, he picked up one of his Nomex pieces before driving, and there was mould on it. Like cheese.
Lando: [laughs] I didn’t wear that one.
Sérgio: He says that, he just turned it round the other way and wore it in reverse.
Who is the most active on social media?
Lando: Well, you do a fair bit.
Sérgio: I’d still say Lando, because I just use Instagram. I don’t really use Twitter, which other people use a lot.
What’s the one place (country, restaurant, club,…) you’d recommend your teammate to go to on their spare time?
Lando: Can it be a team?
Sérgio: A team would be a funnier question…
Lando: I’d probably put him at…HRT? Spyker?
Sérgio: I’ll put him in a McLaren, but in a winning one…
Lando: Ah, that’s nice, man.
Sérgio: But if it has to be a place to go, I’ll say Brazil – it’s the best country in the world!
Lando: Hah, I’ve been to Brazil. I went there for a bath…
Sérgio: Brazil is a big country…you can get non-microwaved food! I’ll recommend Brazil, definitely.
Lando: I went to Brazil for a Pirelli test and it got cancelled. For Sérgio…
Sérgio: It has to be on Earth, it cannot be underneath…
Lando: Hell? I’ll say Jamaica. He can have his own little island, with one tree on it…
Sérgio: With a boat, helicopter…
What’s the best advice you have for your teammate for this season?
Lando: Don’t give up.
Sérgio: I’ll say keep cool. That’s my personal thing.
