An incident on the first lap of the Formula One Hungarian Grand Prix has taken Valtteri Bottas, Lando Norris, Sergio Perez, Lance Stroll and Charles Leclerc out of the race.
Bottas, second on the grid, got off to a slow start and was overtaken by Max Verstappen and Norris.
Bottas, whose Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton qualified on pole at the Hungaroring, rear-ended Norris, who cannoned into championship leader Verstappen.
Verstappen then dropped down the order from third to 13th and a red flag was waved.
Norris, who had fallen to 15th but managed to continue driving, made it into the pit. His car was then retired by McLaren, however.
The incident is the second in a row on an opening lap, following Verstappen’s crash during the British Grand Prix.
The Dutch-Belgian and title rival Hamilton were involved in a coming-together at Silverstone earlier this month, resulting in Verstappen crashing out of the race, which Hamilton went on to win.
