Sergio Perez has outlined his "main target" ahead of his third season with Red Bull in 2023.

The Mexican ended the 2022 World Championship in a career-best third place, a year in which he collected two race wins and a further nine podium finishes.

On the other side of the garage, teammate Max Verstappen clinched his second Drivers' title after claiming a record-breaking 15 victories during the campaign.

When asked by RacingNews365.com about his realistic target for 2023 at Red Bull's RB19 launch event in New York, Perez stated that he intends to fight for wins every weekend this time around.

"I want to maximise the car potential, and I want to be fighting for the win every weekend," he explained.

"I'm really working hard for it, and that's my main target."

Perez: 2023 pecking order hard to know

Red Bull won the Constructors' Championship with races to spare in 2022, marking the first time they had taken the crown since 2013.

However, Perez feels that it is still too soon to predict where the team will stand against their rivals in the pecking order for the upcoming season, which kicks off in Bahrain on 3-5 March.

"It's really hard to know at the moment," Perez commented.

"Mercedes [were] very competitive towards the end of the season, similar [to] Ferrari, so I will expect them to be up there.

"Obviously, there are some midfield teams that are making big steps over the winter, so we'll see. We'll see once we are in Bahrain."
