The extent of the damage to Sergio Perez's Red Bull following his crash out of qualifying at the Formula 1 Monaco Grand Prix has been revealed.

Perez made an early exit from the session in Q1 after losing the rear going into the Sainte Devote corner, resulting in him hitting the barriers and bringing out the red flags.

Team boss Christian Horner later warned that the squad may have to change "the whole lot, the chassis, just as a precaution" on Perez's RB19 following the incident.

An extensive list of components changed on the Mexican's car during parc ferme has now been revealed by the FIA, which includes the floor assembly, rear wing assembly, steering wheel and energy store.

There have also been changes to the front wing/nosebox assembly, gearbox RNC assembly and rear inboard and outboard suspension amongst other components for Perez, who will start from 20th and last on the grid.

Teammate Max Verstappen's car has also undergone a much smaller number of changes, with his RB19's right-hand side front axle end, front trackrod end anti rotation fixing and floor harness being replaced.
