Ricciardo 'very disrespectful' in Hungary qualifying - Perez
Sergio Perez accused Daniel Ricciardo of a "very disrespectful" manoeuvre which ultimately left both drivers counting the cost of Q1 elimination in qualifying for the Hungarian Grand Prix.
Ricciardo hit traffic queuing into the final corner ahead of the final Q1 runs and went around a number of cars as he sought clear air, only to find Perez would not accept being overtaken, as the pair raced to the pit straight.
Eventually the Renault driver had to back out right at the start of his lap, effectively knocking him out immediately and condemning him to 18th on the grid.
Perez was in no doubt that the Australian only had himself to blame, however,
"You see the car ahead, and everyone is just opening gaps," Perez told Sky Sports. "I think what Daniel tried there was very disrespectful, he screwed up his lap and my lap.
