Force India have formally written to the governing body to request a second look into the grid penalty handed to Sergio Pérez after his collision with Felipe Massa in Canada. The Mexican was found to have caused the crash that saw both drivers out of the race, and taken to hospital for precautionary checks.
The team have said they have new evidence that could suggest Sergio’s innocence, and have asked the FIA for a review.
Felipe Massa has no doubts that it was Pérez at fault, and has criticised the incident on several occasions. He said: “It’s not the first time that he’s turned into somebody under braking. I hope he learns. It’s dangerous. For me, five places is not enough.” The Brazilian has also said Pérez risks getting a reputation, similar to “another driver that had a lot of problems in the past and lost a race as a result of the accident he caused at Spa.” So Grosjean, then.
