F1, Monaco GP: accident on the first lap, red flag immediately


By John

The Monaco Grand Prix was stopped with a red flag on the first lap due to a scary accident involving Sergio Perez's Red Bull and the two Haas cars at the rear, which were partially destroyed in the crash. The pilots appear unharmed. Immediately after the start, Carlos Sainz in the Ferrari was forced to stop due to a tire problem, while Charles Leclerc, who started from pole, took the lead. (HANDLE).

From the images of the accident, it appears that Magnussen's Haas attempted to overtake Perez, who started from the rear after a disappointing qualification, but where there was no space. The Mexican's Red Bull was thus violently thrown towards the barriers, also involving Nico Huelkenberg's Haas. Only the solidity of the safety cell saved Perez, who immediately emerged from the remains of the car. Also on the first lap, there was also a collision between the Alpines of Ocon and Gasly at the Portier, with the former's car flying into the air, fortunately without overturning. .
