Perez 'nearly killed' Monaco marshals in terrifying unseen incident

Sergio Perez's quick reactions helped avoid a horrendous incident at the Monaco Grand Prix as the Racing Point driver had to snake his way between two marshals on the track. The track was being cleared after an incident for Charles Leclerc, with Perez pitting seemingly catching out the two marshals.

On-board footage from Perez's car shows how close he came to hitting either of the marshals as they sprinted across the track.

Taking to team radio Perez said: "What was wrong with those marshals? I nearly killed him."

The Mexican was grateful to have avoided a horrible moment post-race, with his quickness on the brake pedal to thank.

"During the Safety Car I had a marshal nearly run into me," said Perez. "I nearly ran over two marshals.

"That was really bad. They were just running back and I was coming out of the pits. I had to brake and they were very lucky that I avoided them.

"They're [marshals] normally very good. It's obviously safety, at the end of the day it's most important the safety for the marshals and drivers."
