The start of the Formula 1 Bahrain Grand Prix was delayed after Sergio Perez rolled to a stop during the formation lap.
The Mexican was set to start from 11th on the grid, but his Red Bull RB16B stopped on track prior to the penultimate corner.
It triggered a delay in the start, Perez able to breathe life back into the car.
Once refired, Perez headed back to the pit lane, from where he was able to join the race.
The team had swapped the controlled electronics ahead of the race.
