Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez are teammates in Red Bull in the 2024 Formula One World Championships, going head-to-head throughout the season.
The two drivers are teammates in Red Bull since 2021. While the Dutchman has been part of the team since 2016, Perez moved to the Austrian team in 2021 after previously driving for Sauber, McLaren, and Racing Points.
In their previous three seasons together, Verstappen always came out on top in head-to-head, as he won a World Drivers' Championship in each of the seasons, while the Mexican driver finished fourth, third, and second in those seasons.
In 2024, Perez will be attempting to finish ahead of his Dutch teammate at the end of the season for the first time since they are driving together in Red Bull, which may also result in winning a World Drivers' Championship since Red Bull looks like the fastest team this year.

2024 Chinese Grand Prix Summary - Verstappen vs Perez:

The 2024 Chinese Grand Prix was the first Sprint weekend of the season, and it didn't start well for Red Bull. During the Sprint Shootout, the conditions changed ahead of SQ3, as it started raining, and neither of the Red Bull drivers profited from that.
As a result, Verstappen qualified only in P4 while Perez was in P6, but both drivers managed to recover well in the Sprint race. The three-time World Champion won the Sprint in China, while Perez joined him on the podium once again, finishing third.
Subsequently, they both brought great form into the qualifying, which was held on the same day, locking out the front row for their team with Verstappen first and the Mexican driver in P2.

2024 Miami Grand Prix Summary - Verstappen vs Perez:

The Miami Grand Prix was a very interesting weekend for the Red Bull Racing team. Although Verstappen delivered two pole positions in both qualifying sessions and a Sprint race win, he didn't have the pace to match Lando Norris in the race.
This was the first time in a while that Red Bull was clearly beaten on race pace by a different team. Perez scored a P3 in the sprint race but couldn't make it on the podium.
However, the Mexican driver could be pleased that he didn't pay for his mistake going into the first corner. He braked too late and almost took out his own teammate.
Red Bull was a few centimeters away from scoring zero points in the Miami Grand Prix, which would allow Ferrari and McLaren to get closer in the Championship. Fortunately, both drivers brought their cars home in the end. Verstappen in P2 and Perez in P4.

2024 Emilia Romagna Grand Prix Summary - Verstappen vs Perez:

Red Bull struggled during the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix weekend from the start of the first practice session until the beginning of qualifying.
The team managed to eliminate some problems, but they didn't have the fastest car going into qualifying. Despite that, the triple World Champion put in an incredible lap, helped by a slipstream from Nico Hulkenberg, to put his RB20 on the pole.
Starting from the pole, Verstappen delivered his best performance of the season, finishing only seven-tenths ahead of the second Lando Norris, but snatching the win for his team.
The weekend at Imola was a polar opposite for Perez. It was his worst weekend of the season up until that point as he didn't make it out of Q2 in qualifying and then finished only p8 on Sunday.
