I've got to say, out of all the interviews I've read this was a really good one. One thing I noticed:
AVC: Their hotels might be nicer than where you guys stay.
MA: We’re all in the same hotels. Actually, most of the times after the legs, we ate with the crew. It’s kind of like you’re traveling as a family. You’re not in the rooms with each other, but Phil and Bertram and Elise, it’s their show and they’re out there with you.
Does this mean that teams aren't separated from each other during pitstops anymore?
That's interesting, I didn't bother to read the whole interview, so it's nice of you to pick this out
However, I can remember that in the early seasons they even said on-show that during pitstops teams get the chance to interact with each other (I believe 'mingle' they used to say?). But I do not remember it ever changing to teams being separated from each other.
