Force India’s Mexican driver Sergio Perez survived a scare he flipped his Force India car during Friday’s first practice session in Budapest ahead of the Hungarian GP. Perez ran his car wide on turn 11 at the circuit and his car spun out, eventually colliding with the barrier and rolling over.
Perez drove his car wide on turn 11 at the circuit and had his car spun out and eventually collided with the barrier and rolled over his car causing a huge panic in the pit line and the paddock. This incident comes just few days after the news of Maurissia driver Jules Bianchi losing his life after an accident at last year’s Japanese Grand Prix. Fortunately, few moments later, Perez managed to walk out of the car and told his team that he is ‘okay’ through the team radio.
While speaking about the accident, he said It was a really bad accident, really unlucky. 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.
Here is the footage of the accident:
