I would say they are between zero and one (the chances of Verstappen letting 'Checo' Pérez win one of the remaining races). I don't think 'Checo' is going to need that help, we saw it on Sunday, Max is focused on his thing. He doesn't want to leave anything on the table. “He is focused on an incredible year that he has been going through and he just wants to continue winning,” Christian Horner told SkySports.

I think 'Checo' Pérez drove brilliantly (in the Brazilian GP). He faltered a bit in Turn 2, which allowed him to try to make up position with Fernando (Alonso), who was quite fast on the straights. However, 'Checo' did everything possible to keep third position," the Red Bull director mentioned to Autosport.
Finally, Christian Horner believes that 'Checo' Pérez is regaining confidence again and, with it, returning to his best version on the trackfacing the last two Great prizes of the 2023 Formula 1 season.
Brazil was important for his confidence. This is the 'Czech' we know and we know what he is capable of. He will give him the boost he needs going to Las Vegas, another street track where he always performs well. And then, a week later, he comes to Abu Dhabi”, he concluded in his talk with Autosport.
