DAMS pair Alexander Albon and Nicholas Latifi face off in a round of quickfire questions.

HEAD
Who gets their hair cut the most often?
Alex:
The problem with my hair is it always sticks out at the sides…I feel like I’m in an interview for Toni & Guy! I have to get it cut before every race weekend.
Nicholas:
I try to get it cut every few weeks or so, but I travel around a lot…I’ll give this to Alex.

EYES
Who posts the most selfies on Instagram?
Alex: I don’t think I ever really do selfies
Nicholas:
I think in all the time I’ve had Instagram, I’ve only posted two or three!

MOUTH
Who tells the most jokes?
Alex: I think I do more jokes with other drivers…and the media!
Nicholas
: I think it’s even, we both make quite a lot of fun out of our engineers…

SHOULDERS
Who best handles the pressure before a race?
Alex: We don’t really know! 50/50?
Nicholas:
Yeah, it’s hard to know because we’ve not been starting near each other! You could say Alex because he’s doing better in the championship…

TUMMY
Who’s always first in the queue for lunch?
Alex: It’s hard to say, it honestly depends…
Nicholas:
We don’t always go together, sometimes Force India prepares something. I’m not the only driver who does that! It’s probably 50/50…

ARMS
Who can do the most push-ups in one sitting?
Alex: You’d be surprised! You’d think I’m not so good…but I’d imagine we’re about the same.
Nicholas:
It depends on what of push-ups you’re doing! But I’d say 60 or 70…

HANDS
Who has published the most tweets?
Alex:
How can I compete when you’ve got a guy tweeting during the race? [laughs]
Nicholas:
Do tweets by PR people count? [Alex: Oh, it counts] So yeah, I think I’ve got more…

LEGS
Who has the most pairs of jeans?
Alex: I literally only really wear two pairs of jeans, and I can only wear black ones in DAMS gear because it looks bad with blue…
Nicholas:
I actually have a lot of pairs back at home, but I always wear the same ones…and because I travel, I can’t take my whole wardrobe from Canada. I travel with about four or five pairs.

FEET
Who is the best dancer?
Alex: Well, as long as Nicky can move then he’s a lot better than I am. I can do the floss though…[demonstrates the floss]…Nirei told me that!
Nicholas:
I’m not a big dancer! And I don’t understand clubs that play rap music, how can you dance to that?

OVERALL

Albon buzzes in early with his pre-race trips to the barber, but Latifi probably just edges it on selfies. It’s difficult not to hand the jokes round to Alex, given that the F2 media team is a constant target for his pranks, but it’s all even in the middle portion as the two match each other on pressure, push-ups and lunch. Nicholas then sweeps the Twitter round, with his PR team giving updates on his race mid-session, and his bigger collection of jeans edges him just ahead. It’s pulled back level as Albon demonstrates how to floss, but we leave the DAMS duo with what looks like a draw.
