Bounded colorings for planar graphs ★★

Author(s): Alon; Ding; Oporowski; Vertigan

Question   Does there exists a fixed function $ f : {\mathbb N} \rightarrow {\mathbb N} $ so that every planar graph of maximum degree $ d $ has a partition of its vertex set into at most three sets $ \{V_1,V_2,V_3\} $ so that for $ i=1,2,3 $, every component of the graph induced by $ V_i $ has size at most $ f(d) $?
