De la Rosa substitutes Pérez in Canadian GP

Published

on

June.10 – After the Friday first practice session for the Canadian GP, Sauber driver Sergio Pérez has say that he will be taking no more part in the race weekend. He now suffered a serious crash in Monaco.

The F1 rookie was given the permission by medical team, although a personal decision sees Pedro de la Rosa return to the Sauber cockpit. Monaco just under a fortnight ago, the Mexican Pérez suffered concussion and a injured thigh after crashing at the Nouvelle Chicane in the final phase of qualifying, resulting in two nights in hospital. Despite managing 27 laps and 11th place in the opening Practice session, he felt in poor health afterwards and chosen not to remain on-track this weekend.

“Of course I wanted to drive and I had no doubt I was alright,” Pérez explains. “But apparently this is unfortunately not the case. I am deeply disappointed. I spoke to the team after the session and told them that I’m not a hundred percent fit. I only want to drive when I’m a hundred percent well. I need some more time to recover.”

“This development hit us by surprise because Sergio underwent thorough medical checks, first in the hospital in Monaco, then in a hospital in Zürich and, finally, the FIA doctors gave him the green light this Thursday in Montreal,” adds Team Principal Peter Sauber. Nobody could have foreseen that he would feel unwell. Maybe we are being overly cautious, but when it’s about the health of our drivers we take zero risks. We want to thank Pedro de la Rosa and McLaren for helping us out in this situation.”
