Sergio Perez believes he has put himself in a "great position" to fight for the win at the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix.
The Red Bull driver climbed from seventh to third during the Sprint at Imola, picking up six points in the process.
His teammate, Max Verstappen, pocketed eight points after passing Charles Leclerc for the win during the final laps.
As a result, Verstappen will start Sunday's Emilia Romagna GP at the front, with Leclerc and Perez behind him.

Perez: Red Bull 1-2 is the target
Perez's impressive climb through the field, which included passes on Lando Norris and Daniel Ricciardo, has filled the Mexican driver with confidence ahead of race day.
"With the red flags [during qualifying], we really struggled a lot with that. We didn't put a lap together when it mattered," he said.
"Today, we managed to recover and I think we are in a great position for the fight tomorrow.
"It would be ideal to get a 1-2 – that would be great for us, but probably not for the Tifosi! We will try."
