Due to a gearbox failure, he started without finishing the race. One more failure after his incident in Q2 on Saturday.
Mexican driver Sergio ‘Checo’ Pérez had to leave the Canadian Grand Prix due to problems with his car and only completed 8 of 70 rounds of the circuit Circuit Gilles Villeneuve.
It was by radio that the Red Bull rider made the fault known apparently in the gearbox, so his team immediately rushed to help remove the vehicle.
“It’s a shame, everything went wrong for us this weekend, especially today, going to zero hurts a lot,” said the driver at the end of the circuit.
It must be remembered that Sergio started from 13th place on the grid, after in Q2 on Saturday had a collision with one of the walls and that prevented him from seeking the top positions for this Sunday.
At the start of the race, Pérez immediately overtook Alex Alban (Williams) and managed to climb to 10th place, but the breakdown of the car prevented him from continuing in the hot Canadian afternoon.
