RUSSIAN TIME duo Artem Markelov and Tadasuke Makino face off in this week’s edition of racing’s most pointless driver comparison.

HEAD
Who gets their hair cut the most often?
Artem: I probably go about once a month.
Tadasuke:
I’m the same – once a month.

EYES
Who posts the most selfies on Instagram?
Artem: I’m not doing a lot, I just did one today on the racetrack but that’s it. I don’t like social media, I have a guy to do it for me…
Tadasuke:
I was in a group selfie with Artem today! I don’t do a lot.

MOUTH
Who tells the most jokes?
Artem: I try to do them sometimes…but if the next race is bad, I’m stopping!
Tadasuke:
I don’t know. But the atmosphere is good, we’re always laughing a lot!

SHOULDERS
Who best handles the pressure before a race?
Artem:
I get a bit nervous before every start.
Tadasuke:
I don’t get too nervous…Artem never looks nervous in the truck! You need it a little bit.

TUMMY
Who’s always first in the queue for lunch?
Artem: I’m not really sure…
Tadasuke:
Maybe we go at about the same time?

ARMS
Who can do the most push-ups in one sitting?
Artem: I think we have very different ideas of training…I prefer to do swimming.
Tadasuke:
We’ve never tried to see!

HANDS
Who has published the most tweets?
Artem: I don’t use Twitter any more, I don’t like it.
Tadasuke:
It’s probably me!

LEGS
Who has the most pairs of jeans?
Artem: I prefer shorts! I really have a lot. I think I have all the colours of Nike Air Max…
Tadasuke:
I have a lot more jeans, about seven or eight pairs.

FEET
Who is the best dancer?
Artem: I don’t like it! Even when I’m trying to dance with my girlfriend, I’m really bad at this.
Tadasuke:
I’m shit!

OVERALL

It’s a tough contest between the two RUSSIAN TIME lads, and they both go into the first few rounds pretty evenly matched. But – shock, horror – it’s Markelov who admits to feeling a little more nervous at the start of a race, belying his cool exterior. Makino underlines his lead by default as Artem’s ditched Twitter, but we’ll give the Russian driver extra credit for his massive collection of shorts – just perfect for winter in Moscow! But all in all, Tada conjures up victory in this week’s feature!
