Sergio Perez is confident that he can sustain his future at Red Bull, despite his recent run of form calling it into question.

The Mexican dropped out of Qualifying early five times in a row, failing to advance to Q3 at every race from Monaco to Britain, failing to start within the top 10 on the grid.

He later admitted that his crash during the Monaco Grand Prix affected his confidence and "trust" in the RB19, while also blaming the changeable conditions for the other misfires.

By contrast Max Verstappen has managed to execute 11 appearances in Q3 and win eight races in a row, racking up 314 points in the process.

Perez is now on 189 points and under pressure from Fernando Alonso and Lewis Hamilton, as Red Bull look to secure a historic one-two in the Drivers' Championship that was denied in 2022.

With Daniel Ricciardo stating that his return to AlphaTauri is all about earning a drive with Red Bull for 2025, Perez has brushed off claims that his time could be limited at the team.

Perez: It's in my hands

"It's in my hands, that's why I'm focused on myself. I'm a winner and I don't like having bad weekends," he told media, including RacingNews365.

"It's not what I'm here for, I would rather be at home doing something else. I'm here because I know that I can do it and I've done it before.

"People just on the sofa forget how much in the little details that we are. You've seen it with other drivers for their teams, they've had difficult periods."
