Q&A with Louis Tomlinson
What is the best thing about F1?
The pure speed of the cars and the race to the first corner.
Are there any similarities between the buzz of F1 and the buzz of live music?
The adrenaline of going out on stage. But unlike the drivers, at least I get a break on stage at times. In the car, they cannot stop until all laps are over.
Max Verstappen and Lando Norris.
Red Bull and McLaren
Favorite F1 track?
Silverstone for the British GP.
If you could choose one of your songs to be the new theme tune for F1, which one would it be and why?
Kill my mindas it is a high-tempo song that evokes the same energy from me on stage as what happens on the field.
What are your favorite memories from following Formula 1?
Going to Monaco in 2017 and really seeing it.
Which F1 driver do you think would make the best music artist and why?
Kimi Raikkonen. I just see the rock star in him.
You could go to a concert with three people dead or alive, who would they be and which band/artist would you go see?
Guenther Steiner, Max Verstappen and Kimi Raikkonen to see Avicii at Ushuaia in Ibiza.
Tell us about your new music?
This new album represents me better as an artist, so I’m really excited for what’s to come.
