Proof that sport is played as much between the ears as anywhere else, even at the elite level? Sergio Perez’s 2023 season after round five in Miami, which was when what shaped as an intriguing fight with Red Bull Racing teammate Max Verstappen began to spiral into a slump that caused the Mexican’s future to become a talking point.

At two wins apiece coming into Miami and on pole (with Verstappen in ninth), Perez had everything to gain; he lost that race, and with it, his way as Verstappen won 16 more times while Perez managed two second places thereafter.

On paper, Perez did his job last year – only Verstappen won more, he helped Red Bull win the constructors’ title, and ensured the team had its drivers finish 1-2 in the drivers’ standings for the first time. In reality, his grasp on his seat looked shakier the longer 2023 went.
