Sergio Perez will be determined to record his second win of the current season when he takes part in the Belgian Grand Prix.
The Red Bull Racing-RBPT driver struggled in last year's Belgian Grand Prix as he finished 19th and he will be hoping to perform better this year. 
Perez finished fifth in the most recent race in the current campaign which was the Hungarian Grand Prix on July 31 having won the Monaco Grand Prix in May.

Starting from 11th at the Hungarian Grand Prix, Perez made steady progress and capitalised on Ferrari's strategy woes to finish in fifth place, ahead of Charles Leclerc.
Max Verstappen of Red Bull Racing-RBPT won the Hungarian Grand Prix and the Mercedes duo of Lewis Hamilton and George Russell finished second and third respectively.
Perez's teammate Verstappen remains at the top of the 2022 Drivers' Championship standings and he is followed by Leclerc.    
While Perez. who hails from Mexico, is placed third on the standings and he will leapfrog Lerclec if he wins this weekend's Belgian Grand Prix.

“I think in the middle of the race, we were looking good, we were thinking to go for the one-stop," Perez said after the Hungarian Grand Prix.
"So therefore I think we didn’t quite maximise that stint and unfortunately, that didn’t work out as good as we would have liked, and then at the end, I just lost out by a couple of seconds on Carlos and George.
“We were much faster, together with Charles [Leclerc], from behind but unfortunately there was a Virtual Safety Car for a bit too long and that just hurt us a bit.”
Red Bull Racing-RBPT are placed at the top of the Constructors' Championship standings and they are followed by Ferrari and Mercedes respectively.
