Mexican Sergio Perez made a fresh start on the streets of Monaco on Thursday, roaring past the scene of a qualifying accident that last year landed the Sauber driver in hospital and out of the race.

Perez was one of the first to test the track in the opening practice session in brilliant sunshine after telling reporters he had a clear mind and was looking forward to racing in the principality. "To be back here is unbelievable. After such an accident I had last year, it's really great. I'm very happy to be back," said the 22-year-old.

The Mexican missed what would have been his first Monaco GP and the following race in Canada as he battled with lingering concussion.
