Unfortunately for Pérez and his beloved fans, the race ended at the start, when he entered Turn 1 fighting against Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc and his Red Bull teammate Max Verstappen for the lead of the event.
Pérez, on the outside of a three-car fight, turned into the corner and made contact with Leclerc’s Ferrari, which was in the middle of the battle.
The damage on Pérez’s car forced him to retire from the event, a race that saw him finish on the podium in 2021 and 2022.
