F1 drivers need a lot of different skills to get their cars around the varying tracks around the world but how are the artistic skills of Esteban Ocon and Sergio Perez, we had to find out.

When SPORTbible and Sahara Force India became partners the drivers had to expect that we were going to give them something a little different to do.

When we had time with them in Monaco we wanted the boys to design the perfect race helmet. Only one problem, no blank helmets to draw on. That meant we needed a substitute.

Fortunately we had the head of a super fan at hand and Perez especially was excited by the prospect:

Sergio Perez has been showing his impressive ability on the Formula One circuit since signing with Sauber aged just 21, six years ago.

Since then Perez moved to McLaren for a season before his four years at Force India which has seen him become one of the most well rounded performers on the track, often featuring in the top 10 and getting the most out of his car.

This season the Mexican has been joined by 20 year-old Frenchman Esteban Ocon. The youngster joined Manor at the back end of last season, racing in the last nine races of the season.

Despite not winning any points with Manor he impressed enough to earn a move to Force India and he's shown why at the beginning of the season.

Driving Sahara's beautiful pink VMJ10 the youngster has secured points in five of this season's first six races this season, only missing out in Monaco where he had issues with a puncture that cost him points.

Ocon's career has had a brilliant start and he looks assured in such accomplished company.

Perez also took points in the opening five races of the season and also had his troubles in the French principality of his own. The former McLaren man was running in the points late on until a collision forced him into a pit stop.

Not just good drivers but also fantastic at drawing on heads, who knew!
