Sauber’s Sergio Perez has suffered a heavy crash coming out of the famous Monaco tunnel and in an identical crash to Karl Wendlinger’s back in 1994 he has hit the barriers side on.

Qualifying was red flagged immediately with a little over 2 minutes of qualifying remaining, with the medical teams and stewards working on firstly getting Perez out of the car before beginning the work to rebuild the crash barriers.

As the ambulance pulled away the BBC commentators thankfully said that Perez was conscious and talking, but obviously his full condition is not known at this time.
