During Monaco GP, Carlos Sainz and Oscar Piastri found themselves entangled at the very first corner. The collision set off a chain of events that would shape the race.

As the lights went out and the cars hurtled toward Sainte Devote, Sainz and Piastri went side-by-side into the tight turn. Their wheels touched, and the impact left Sainz with a front-left puncture. The Ferrari driver struggled to maintain control as he slid to a halt after Massenet. Meanwhile, chaos erupted further up the field.

After the race, Carlos Sainz reflected on the incident. “Oscar and I seem to have a magnet recently between each other,” he quipped. The collision had significant consequences for both drivers, affecting their race strategies and positions.

Sainz also discussed his battle with Lando Norris. He aimed to keep the McLaren driver under 20 seconds ahead of George Russell. Managing the gap was crucial, especially in a race as tight and unpredictable as Monaco.

Just moments after Sainz’s collision with Piastri, another incident unfolded. Kevin Magnussen attempted a move on Sergio Perez but ended up tagging the rear of the Red Bull. The result? Both cars slammed into the wall at high speed, leaving debris scattered across the track. Nico Hulkenberg, in the other Haas, had nowhere to go and got caught up in the melee.
