Red Bull Racing's Sergio Perez will be looking to maintain his strong start to the season as the Chinese Grand Prix returns to the Formula One calendar on Sunday, April 21.
The Mexican is Max Verstappen's closest challenger for the title in the early stages of 2024 after claiming three P2's in the opening four races.
Perez made it a one-two for Red Bull on each occasion after finishing behind the reigning three-time world champion in the Bahrain Grand Prix, the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix and the Japanese Grand Prix.

The 34-year-old wasn't able to capitalise on Verstappen's early retirement in Melbourne due to break failure as he failed to match the pace set by the Ferraris and came in 56.309 seconds behind race-winner Carlos Sainz Jr. in P5.
Perez's future has been the topic of hot discussion in recent weeks with his current contract set to expire at the end of the year amid rumours that Daniel Ricciardo, Sainz Jr. and Fernando Alonso are vying for his seat.
'Checo' is cutting a relaxed figure though, and expects the picture for 2025 to be clearer in the next month or so.
"I am pretty relaxed about it," Perez told Sky Sports F1 after the race in Japan. "My main focus is in F1 and whatever comes next, I'm really pleased with what I've done in the sport so far.
"I believe it will be a matter of time, obviously the driver market is moving and the next few weeks are going to be a lot of movement for sure, so I expect within a month to really know what I'm doing next year."

2024 Japanese Grand Prix results:

Winner: Max Verstappen - Red Bull Racing
Second Place: Sergio Perez - Red Bull Racing
Third Place: Carlos Sainz Jr. - Ferrari
