Sergio Perez' F1 career with Racing Point is over after he was the first driver to retire from the race.

Having finished with his first win in his 190 race career in the Sakhir Grand Prix, having come from last to first, Perez' car just appeared to give up on him as he raged over team radio about the "f***ing engine".

"The engine just completely went on him. Absolute heartbreak and sporting tragedy for Perez and the Racing Point team," David Croft said on Sky Sports.

Perez slammed his steering wheel and gestured in frustration once he got out of the car.

It also makes it all the more difficult for Racing Point to nab third on the constructors championship.
