Sirotkin’s se­cret weight rou­tine

F1 Racing (UK) - - PARADE -

At the be­gin­ning of the sea­son I no­ticed that Sergey Sirotkin would al­ways come into the Wil­liams garage al­ready suited and booted with his hel­met on. So I did a bit of in­ves­tiga­tive work to find out where he pre­pared be­fore get­ting into the car.

It tran­spired he would weigh him­self on a set of scales in the back of the garage, be­cause he was metic­u­lous with his diet to en­sure he was al­ways at the op­ti­mum weight.

In the Wil­liams garage in Austin, they had their en­gine cowl­ings hang­ing up on the back wall which makes for a very retro feel, while Sirotkin is on the scales mea­sur­ing him­self be­fore prac­tice.
