Dwight Yorke and Andy Cole, Andrew Strauss and Marcus Trescothick, Paul Heyman and Brock Lesnar and Jack Wilshere and Arsenal's physio- some of sport's great double acts but where do Sahara Force India's drivers rank on the great sporting pairs?

Formula One is a bit of a weird sport in the fact that it is a team sport and an individual sport all rolled into one, it's why colleagues like Mark Webber and Sebastian Vettel and Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg have fallen out even though they've been winning.

Money in the sport is all down to where the team finish but the prestige and the honour mostly comes down to the drivers championships, especially because the drivers are usually super competitive.

It means that despite travelling all over the world together there aren't many good friendships on the grid, not away from your own team anyway.

But whilst the drivers are in the same garage just what do they learn about each other and how much do they know? We put Force India's Sergio Perez and Esteban Ocon to the ultimate test:

Well that didn't go all too well did it chaps!

On the track the pair are certainly getting very close to each other as they've helped the 'Pink Panther' up to fourth place in the drivers championship behind only Mercedes, Ferrari and Red Bull, pretty great going.

'Checo' has continued his impressive form from last season, when he secured two podiums for his team, finishing in the points in seven of the nine races so far this season.

He's yet to land on the podium but it's just a matter of time.

Ocon's first season with the team has seen him actually pick up points in eight of the nine races, only failing in Monaco, and sits in an impressive eighth in the driver's title, just 11 points behind his more experienced teammate.

The pair actually came together during the recent Azerbaijan race but all was good by the Austrian race and they can now concentrate on keeping their great form going till the end of the season.

And in the quiet time they can get to know each other better...
