Watch: First-Lap Chaos At Tuscan GP As Verstappen & Gasly Crash Out

Verstappen had an issue with his power unit which caused his RB16 to lose performance shortly after the lights went out.

The inaugural Tuscan Grand Prix was full of action and drama, with plenty of crashes and quite a few intense on-track battles and overtakes.

The race only lasted a matter of seconds before the safety car came out on the opening lap, with Max Verstappen and Pierre Gasly having to retire after just a few corners.

The source of the first-lap chaos was a technical issue with Verstappen’s power unit which caused him to lose power and drop places.

Pierre Gasly and Kimi Raikkonen subsequently had a coming together and both ended up crashing into the back of Verstappen’s Red Bull.

Separately, Carlos Sainz tangled with Sergio Perez in the Racing Point, before being driven into by Sebastian Vettel – who sustained front-wing damage on his Ferrari SF1000 as a result of the collision.
