Sergio Checo Pérez started the Mexican Grand Prix weekend with a crash that damaged his Red Bull.

Just in the first practice session at the Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez, Mexican Sergio Checo Pérez skidded around a curve, lost control, and ended up colliding with the rear of the vehicle.

According to Red Bull, the Red Bull wing broke in half and it was necessary for Checo to take the car to the pits, where they will change the part and check that it has no more damage.

It is expected that the mishap will have no consequences and that Checo Pérez can continue with the activity of the 2021 Mexican Grand Prix, which this Friday has the second round of training scheduled.

Qualifying will be on Saturday, November 6, and the race is scheduled for Sunday, November 7 at one in the afternoon.

After 26 minutes out of the competition due to the crash he suffered, Checo Pérez returned to the fray in the first free practice.

Despite the incident with his vehicle, the Mexican came to show that he is going with everything for the GP of Mexico City.

Checo with the support of all the Mexican fans, managed to regain positions and finish in the fourth position.

A difficult start for Pérez, however, he knew how to come from less to more and close to being one of the three fastest in this first session.

Valtteri Bottas took first place, followed by teammate Lewis Hamilton and third place Max Verstappen.
