Perez flips in serious strange crash
Sergio Perez had a miraculous escape after his Force India turned upside down in a freak high speed crash in first practice Friday.

The Mexican lost control of his car with around half an hour of the 90 minute morning session remaining.

Perez suffered a failure on the right rear corner of his car exiting Turn 11 and hit the barrier, with one of the front tyres then folding under the car and causing him to roll. With the Force India coming to rest upside down, Perez was fortunately able to climb out of the car unaided and was deemed unhurt after a brief visit to the medical centre.

He appeared a little shaken and admitted he was unsure how the accident happened.

“It was a really bad accident, really unlucky,” Perez told Sky Sports F1 after the shunt.

“I went near the astro turf and I just collided with wrong side of the track at a very bad angle so it made the car roll over, but everything is alright.

“But it was a bit strange. I thought I was under control but I guess the astro turf was really dirty and I guess that’s why I went into the wall. But we will check.”
