Crashes have not dimmed Perez's passion for Monaco

Crashes have not dimmed Perez's passion for Monaco

Sergio Perez knows all about the perils of racing in Monaco, yet the Mexican says the only way to tackle Formula One's notoriously complex circuit is with outright aggression.
The 23-year-old Perez got a concussion in a crash during qualifying in his rookie season two years ago, and last year one of his rear wheels flew off as he plunged into the crash barriers hurtling around the glistening harbor section of the track.
Perez was kept for two nights at Princess Grace hospital following his crash in 2011. But despite narrowly escaping serious injury, he says "that is all about Monaco: if you are not going to the limit you are not going anywhere here."
