Sergio Perez has had a string of disappointing races, dropping him from second to fifth in the Formula One championship in a short space of time. The Mexican therefore knows what he has to do in the Spanish Grand Prix.

Perez knows what to do in Spanish GP

Perez finished no further than eighth in Imola and then failed to score any points in the Monaco and Canada Grands Prix, after crashing in both races. As a result, he is currently ahead of Charles Leclerc, Lando Norris and Carlos Sainz in the F1 championship.

"Coming into Spain I know I need a successful weekend, after a disaster in Canada," Perez looks ahead to the Spanish GP. "Sometimes you are forced to reset a little and we have done that since the last race. I have been in Milton Keynes working with the Team to try and identify where and what we can do better to ensure I am getting the most out of this car."

He continued: "I am confident in the car and the performance we can execute from it, but I need to show that on track better in Barcelona. I always enjoy the Spanish GP, it feels a lot like home and everyone makes me feel so welcome. It’s a circuit I know very well and the RB20 should be quick around this type of track, so it’s down to us to get things right and bring home the result we know we are capable of."
