Sergio Perez will have a unique helmet design for this weekend's Brazilian Grand Prix, modelled on the upcoming Marvel film Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.

The Mexican revealed the news in his documentary series Checo, which charts the on- and off-track life of the Red Bull driver.

The film is a sequel to the first Black Panther film released in 2018 to critical acclaim. Also featuring in the film is Mexican actor Tenoch Huerta, who is an acquaintance of Perez.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will be released on 11 November, two days before the Brazilian Grand Prix.

Lewis Hamilton has previously made reference to the Black Panther film series, dedicating his 2020 Belgian Grand Prix pole position lap to lead actor Chadwick Boseman, who had passed away the previous day.

At the Mexico City Grand Prix, McLaren became the first team to complete a sub-two second pit-stop since the introduction of the new F1 pit-stop regulations, changing all four tyres on Daniel Ricciardo's car in 1.98 seconds.

So how did the team do this, and what changes have been made to F1's pit-stop procedure in the last couple of years?
