Bianchi still on minds as Perez rolls in Hungary

Bianchi Force India Hungary
A week after Jules Bianchi’s death, the tragedy was still front and centre on Friday when Sergio Perez rolled over in his Force India in Hungary practice.

The Mexican was “lucky to be alive” after the “horror crash”, Britain’s Express newspaper dramatically exclaimed.

The Times called the crash and the completely unharmed Perez’s subsequent trip to the medical centre a “graphic representation of the peril” still facing F1 drivers today.

Giles Richards, writing for the Guardian, said “hearts were in mouths again” as fans waited for Perez to climb out of his overturned Force India.

And even the Silverstone based team appeared to recognise the significance of the first spectacular crash since Bianchi’s death, pulling both cars from the second practice session.

“In our sport there is always risk,” said Perez, “but I think the team has taken the right decision in not letting us onto the track while the cause of the problem was not completely clear.” (GMM)
