Sergio Perez will be looking to win the Monaco Grand Prix for the first time in his career when he competes at Circuit de Monaco, on May 29.
 
The Red Bull Racing-RBPT driver narrowly missed out on a podium spot in last season's Monaco Grand Prix as he finished fourth.
 
Perez came close to recording his first win of the current campaign when he finished second at the Spanish Grand Prix on May 22.

The 32-year-old secured Red Bull Racing's second one-two finish of the season and even took home an extra point for setting the fastest lap.
 
His teammate Max Verstappen won the Spanish Grand Prix while George Russell of Mercedes finished third following a memorable race in Catalonia.  
 
Therefore, Verstappen moved to the top of the 2022 Drivers' Championship standings and the Belgian star is followed by Ferrari driver Charles Leclerc.
 
While Perez is placed third and will be looking to become the first Spanish driver to win the Monaco Grand Prix and also boost his hopes of challenging for the Formula One championship.

The Guadalajara-born star was ecstatic after finishing second for the first time at the Spanish Grand Prix as Red Bull Racing enjoyed a successful weekend. 
 
“I have been feeling a lot of support this weekend so I am extremely happy to be on the podium for the first time in the Spanish Grand Prix," Perez said.
 
"I think it was close but in the end, it is a great team result and I am happy with that. We went on different tire strategies and I let Max by in the beginning, 
 
"But then I thought I could go by and not lose crucial seconds to make my strategy work. But anyway...it is a team result.”
 
Red Bull Racing-RBPT are placed at the top of the Constructors' Championship standings and they are followed by Ferrari and Mercedes respectively.
