Sergio Perez will be keen to redeem himself by winning the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix title having finished second in last year's event.
Most recent race 
The Red Bull Racing-Honda RBPT driver narrowly missed out on a podium spot at the most recent race which was the Miami Grand Prix on 5 May.
Perez started on the fourth grid and he finished fourth which saw him collecting 12 points in the process from the eventful race.
Formula One title ambitions
The experienced driver is still placed second on the World Drivers' Championship standings having accumulated 103 points from six races.
Perez is 33 points behind the leader Max Verstappen of Red Bull Racing-Honda RBPT as the two teammates go head to head for the Formula One world title.
Why Perez could win the 2024 Emilia Romagna MotoGP
Perez is the driver with the most second spot finishes in the current season having been the runner-up three times.
The Mexican star, who finished second in the 2023 Emilia Romagna Grand Prix, will be looking to go one step further and win the race this weekend. 
What did he say?
"I had a good start, Charles had a really bad start, but as soon as I brake into the inside there was no grip, like with Lewis [Hamilton] yesterday [in the Sprint]," Perez said after the 2024 Miami Grand Prix.
"And offline there was no grip, and I ended up locking. I nearly took Max out. So I had to come off the brake and I lost a position to Oscar. It was quite unfortunate, but other than that, I think, we were struggling for some pace today. 
"We just couldn't manage to get a pace where we needed and, yeah, something that we got to work on to try and understand why, what was the issue."
