Salma then urged her fans and followers to donate to charities linked to the relief efforts, adding, "I implore you, I implore to your hearts, to the goodness of your hearts, to your compassion to help". "Many children and families are hurt and in bad need". "I will match the first $100,000 that are donated", she added.

Perez finished fifth at the Singapore Grand Prix last weekend, just days after confirming he had signed a contract extension to stay at Force India for a fifth campaign in 2018.

Salma Hayek has launched a fundraising campaign to support those affected by Mexico's recent earthquakes.

Hayek also included her note in Spanish and posted videos in both English and Spanish.

Sergio Pérez has donated £125,000 to the victims of yesterday's Mexico natural disaster in which almost 250 people have been killed. "A lot of my friends have died, including an uncle who was very, very, very close to me".

"I have lived through the aftermath of a disaster of this magnitude and it's horrific". "Anything you can give will make a big difference".

However, the second major quake to strike Mexico in less than two weeks has caused catastrophic damage in the country's capital.

The country was also hit by Hurricane Katia earlier this month.
