This week, it’s the turn of Sean Gelael and Nyck de Vries to face off. Find out who takes charge of motorsport’s most useless driver comparison, and feel free to disagree with the overall verdict!

HEAD
Who gets their hair cut the most often?
Sean: I’m trying to grow my hair! I think Nyck…he just got a haircut, actually.
Nyck:
Me, but they really messed it up! I went to this random barber in Nice, and he took too much off…

EYES
Who posts the most selfies on Instagram?
Sean: I rarely take selfies – I do more videos…although my arms are probably the right length for selfies!
Nyck:
Sean. I don’t take selfies…

MOUTH
Who tells the most jokes?
Sean: Me…
Nyck:
Sean, definitely. With Sean, it’s always “would you rather?”, but it’s sometimes very dirty!

SHOULDERS
Who best handles the pressure before a race?
Sean: Quali is him, definitely.
Nyck:
I don’t know, I’ve wasted so many opportunities…I think it depends on the situation.

TUMMY
Who’s always first in the queue for lunch?
Sean: I think it’s the same, we go together.
Nyck:
Yeah, it’s about the same.

ARMS
Who can do the most push-ups in one sitting?
Sean: I have longer levers, so I think it’s Nyck. I can definitely do 200 [laughs]
Nyck:
I’ll say me. We have a test at McLaren, I think the highest they’ve had is 75, but it’s very strict…

HANDS
Who has published the most tweets?
Sean: I think it’s Nyck, because I don’t use Twitter any more.
Nyck:
Let’s have a look who has more, I want to know. [checks] 2513 for me, 2215 for Sean, it’s really close actually…

LEGS
Who has the most pairs of jeans?
Sean: I have a lot, but I moved apartments and I want to donate some of them…
Nyck:
I think Sean has more clothes in general…why would you count your jeans?

FEET
Who is the best dancer?
Sean: Me – it’s because I’m dark, I have more rhythm! [laughs]
Nyck:
Sean. He’s a better actor too.

OVERALL

Lightning start from de Vries, pulling away with his more frequent trips to the barber in the bag. The pair are pretty evenly matched on selfies, before Gelael’s jokes and “would you rather?” scenarios pulls him equal with his teammate. We’re about even on the middle stint – Nyck disarmingly honest about his missed opportunities on the track – before the Dutchman climbs above once more on push-ups and tweets. But Sean hits back, and his full wardrobe and repertoire of dance moves brings him level at the finish line. It’s a draw here.
