Starting 11th from the grid, Perez jumped up three places to finish inside top 10 and consolidate Force India’s fourth position in the Constructor’s standings with 138 points.

However, Hulkenberg and bumped into Valtteri Bottas of Williams in the first corner, hurting his race. The German had to retire at the end of the opening lap.

Just not Hulkenberg, Perez too encountered a horrible opening lap as Toro Rosso’s Daniil Kvyat spun the Mexican in Turn 11.
