Bodyguard shot in robbery at Sergio Perez's family home – report | Planet F1

An attempted robbery at Sergio Perez’s family home in Mexico is reported to have resulted in a bodyguard being shot.

RaceFans report local media have reported a member of the family’s security personnel was injured during the incident in the Ladrón de Guevara neighbourhood in the municipality of the Red Bull driver’s home city, Guadalajara, with their condition unknown.

The news emerged just minutes before Perez, 31, was due to take part in qualifying for the Red Bull team in the Monaco Grand Prix.

Perez is understood to be a regular visitor back to his native Mexico when Formula 1 commitments allow.

Last season, he travelled back in between the Hungarian and British Grands Prix in midsummer to see his mother, who was unwell at the time.

Unfortunately, Perez, who went on to win for the first time in F1 in his 10th season at the Sakhir Grand Prix in Bahrain, contracted COVID-19 on his return from that visit and had to miss both races at Silverstone while he recovered.
