Max Verstappen crash: Watch Red Bull star getting out of the race at Mugello, after massive chaos at the start of the race.
Max Verstappen for the third time in the season will not be able to complete the race, as he got his car crashed at the start of the race, taking out his former teammate Pierre Gasly too.
It caused after Carlos Saiz car got stuck in the middle of the track and all the cars had to improvise, but the little space to Verstappen did not allow him to escape McLaren car lying in front of him.
On the other hand, Kimi Raikkonen and Pierre Gasly’s cars were also coming from behind and did humungous damage to Verstappen and send him off the track.
From where there was no coming back for the Dutch driver. Ironically, Sainz was able to survive the chaos and continued the race, whilst the yellow flags were waved.

Tuscan Grand Prix full of crashes
The paddock just recovered from this crash and safety car went out just moments ago, the grid suffered another crash and maybe bigger and dangerous one, which involved multiple drivers.
Taking out Kevin Magnussen, Antonio Giovinazzi, Carlos Sainz and Nicholas Latifi. This time, Sainz was not lucky enough, and later he said “By the time I saw everything it was too late – it was a big crash. The main thing is that we are all ok”

This led immediate waving off of the red flag, hence stopping the race. It’s the first time that Formula 1 had a Red Flag in consecutive races since 2011 – Monaco followed by Canada
