Red Bull performs miracle at Spa: Perez to start after crash on warm-up lap

After inquiries from Mercedes to the FIA , confirmation has come that Sergio Perez  can take part in the Grand Prix, provided his car can be repaired in time. If Red Bull repair the vehicle Perez will start from the pit lane.

" We hope the weather eases and Perez is allowed to start from the pitlane ," was the FIA's brief message to Red Bull Racing . Michael Masi speaking to Mercedes was a bit more expansive and said that if Red Bull can repair the car then Perez will probably be able to start from the pitlane.

Whether Perez will start at all remains to be seen. The race has been under red flag for almost an hour due to the conditions and the drivers have until 17:00 UK time to finish the race.
