As the Formula 1 world descended upon Monaco, the famous street circuit witnessed a heart-pounding incident during F2 qualifying. Rodin Motorsport driver Tiomo Miyata suffered a power unit issue and slowed down significantly as he entered the tunnel. Meanwhile, the 19-year-old French prodigy, Isack Hadjar, was hurtling toward the same blind corner at full speed.

In the blink of an eye, Hadjar’s reflexes kicked in. He flicked the wheel to the left, narrowly avoiding a collision with Miyata. Not only did he prevent a disastrous crash, but he also managed to keep his car off the left-hand wall as he continued down the road. The moment was nothing short of magic, and replays of the near miss quickly went viral on social media.

The PREMA Racing driver, Oliver Bearman, received a three-place grid drop for impeding Campos Racing’s Josep María Martí during a push lap. After reviewing video evidence and speaking with both drivers and their representatives, the stewards determined that Bearman’s actions were unnecessary and warranted a penalty.

F2 team DAMS Lucas Oil’s Juan Manuel Correa also faced a three-place grid penalty. The stewards found that Correa had impeded PREMA Racing’s Andrea Kimi Antonelli during a push lap. Like Bearman, Correa’s actions were deemed inappropriate, leading to the penalty.

The Invicta Racing F2 driver, Kush Maini, was also awarded a three-place grid penalty for impeding Rodin Motorsport’s Zane Maloney. Video evidence and statements from both drivers and their respective team representatives confirmed the incident.
