Max Verstappen will being trying to bounce back and put his friend Lando Norris back in his place among the chasing pack when Formula One returns to Europe for the Emilia-Romagna Grand Prix.

The three-time world champion, who leads this year's title race for Red Bull, knows, however, that after suffering two defeats in six races so far this season, he may be vulnerable, and McLaren's Norris will be armed with upgrades as he seeks to add to his maiden triumph in Miami on May 6.

Most, if not all, teams will bring revised cars to the seventh race of the season, with Ferrari and Mercedes both hoping to reduce Verstappen's advantage at the cramped and atmospheric circuit set in the rolling vineyards of Ferrari's Italian heartland.
