McLaren insists it did not order Sergio Perez to ease off in his Spanish Grand Prix battle against Jenson Button in an attempt to avoid a repeat of their Bahrain GP clash. Just one race after the pair came to blows at Sakhir with an over-aggressive fight for positions , the prospect of another wheel-to-wheel dice was on the cards at Barcelona when Perez closed in on his team-mate in the closing stages. However, a late radio message to the Mexican that told him to focus on conserving his tyres meant he abandoned his chase of Button, and he finished two seconds behind at the chequered flag.
