The incident occurred during the uphill romp on the way to Massenet, when the wheels of Red Bull’s Perez became tangled with those of Haas’ Magnussen. This led to Perez crashing heavily, causing the race to be red flagged. To make matters worse, a pursuing Haas driver Hulkenberg failed to avoid Perez’s turning car and was also involved in the accident. The race of all three drivers was stopped on the spot.

With all three emerging unscathed, it is also a testament to how safe Formula 1 is these days as more and more progress is made in safety. It was also a relief to all the drivers in the crash that the FIA ​​did not issue any penalty points. If that had been the case, Magnussen would have had to miss a Grand Prix.

“It was clearly stupid between Kevin and Checo,” Hulkenberg told Sky Germany. I don’t know if Checo has seen Kevin. Checo could have left room. At the same time, I think Kevin was also very optimistic to stay there, where the track narrows and there are small kinks up to Turn 3. I think it’s actually not necessary, it could have easily been avoided.”

“For me, who wasn’t directly involved, this is obviously the worst of all. I probably missed it by two tenths. If I had been two times further, he would have missed me. I’m gutted and I’m disappointed because everyone on the team is investing a lot of energy and time and it’s just frustrating,” he added.
