Qualifying for the Monaco Grand Prix was stopped following a crash involving Sergio Perez.

Perez lost control of his car on the approach to the chicane. He glanced the barrier on the right, then skidded into the TecPro barrier beyond the run-off area.

The recovery crews spent around 20 minutes recovering Perez from the car.

The 21-year-old Mexican driver was reported to be “conscious and talking” following the crash which took place with two minutes to go in Q3.

Nico Rosberg had a similar accident in qualifying but missed the barrier Perez hit.

Update: The FIA has confirmed Perez has no broken bones. He will remain in hospital overnight with suspected concussion.

Update: Sauber confirm Perez has ??no serious injuries??
