Mercedes have admitted that every Formula 1 team will be studying the floor of Sergio Perez’s Red Bull after the Mexican’s car was hoisted into the air during the Monaco Grand Prix.
Lewis Hamilton's crash at the end of FP3 saw his Mercedes lifted into the air with a crane, exposing its floor for all to see. Toto Wolff joked at the time that the crane operator "worked for Cirque du Soleil" - his thinly-veiled annoyance at the situation clear for all to see.
However, Perez's car would soon follow suit during qualifying after the Red Bull driver went out in Q1.
