WATCH: From last to first – how did Sergio Perez win the Sakhir Grand Prix?


It was the stuff of dreams for Sergio Perez as he ended a 190-race wait for a Formula 1 Grand Prix victory at Sakhir last Sunday – but how did he go from last place on Lap 1 to first at the chequered flag?

After a first lap crash involving Perez, Charles Leclerc and Max Verstappen – that saw the latter two drivers out of the race on the spot – Perez was right at the back of the pack and even facing the wrong way. But from there he pulled off a miraculous recovery to take a hugely popular victory under the lights.

“I hope I’m not dreaming, you know, because I dreamed so many years of being in this moment. Ten years, ten years it took me. Incredible. I mean, I don’t know what to say, you know,” was how Perez explained his emotions after the Sakhir Grand Prix.
