The change in driver press conferences will continue at this weekend's Portuguese Grand Prix with Valtteri Bottas and Sergio Perez paired together.
Having started at the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix, drivers will no longer sit beside their teammates. This is being done by F1 in order to prevent similar answers from the two drivers when asked a question.
Not all 20 drivers have been separated from their teammates however, with the McLaren duo of Daniel Ricciardo and Lando Norris sticking together. The remaining 18 drivers have been mixed up though, with championship leader Lewis Hamilton paired with Carlos Sainz, while Max Verstappen will sit alongside Nikita Mazepin.
Red Bull and Mercedes will cross paths with Bottas and Perez speaking at the press conference together. The two teams will once again be drawn together during Friday's press conference involving team bosses, as Christian Horner and Toto Wolf will be joined by Zak Brown.
The second group will see Marcin Budkowski of Alpine, Laurenti Mekies of Ferrari and Toyoharu Tanabe of Honda speak.
Check out the full schedule for drivers below.
