Perez under investigation

NEWS STORY
17/09/2016

Sergio Perez is under investigation for two incidents during Q2.

Both incidents relate to the yellow flags that followed Romain Grosjean's crash and Jenson Button's clash with the barriers.

The Force India driver is being investigated for failure to slow for the double waved yellow flags in turns 9 & 10 following Grosjean's crash and then overtaking Esteban Gutierrez under waved yellow flags in turn 16 after Jenson Button had hit the barriers and wrecked his steering.

While the Mexican has defended both incidents, Felipe Massa and Valtteri Bottas, whose team is fighting Force India for fifth in the standings have criticised Perez, insisting that he benefited – making the cut through to Q3 – while they paid the price by slowing for the flags.

As the stewards investigate, Force India has already been fined 200 euros after Perez was adjudged to have exceeded the pitlane speed limit during Q2.
