Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez's latest chapter in their inter-team battle for the 2023 F1 title will come while driving unusually-coloured cars...

Perez received advise from Anthony Davidson on how to battle Verstappen: “So what do you do? You’ve got to be more Rosberg 2016.

"That’s what you’ve got to do. I was always told from team bosses that I was too nice.

"I think they were right. That’s what made me a much better sportscar driver, I was more of a team player. 

“I think now it’s time for Sergio to stop being ‘Mr Nice Guy’. He’s got to take a leaf out of Rosberg 2016 and maybe, as much as it might hurt, to be the guy that he doesn’t want really to be.”
