WATCH: Racing gets under way with rolling start at damp Monaco track as Leclerc leads pack away

It was a sub-optimal opening for Canadian drivers Lance Stroll and Nicholas Latifi, both of who hit the barriers on the formation lap, forcing them to pit – where they nearly collected one another as Stroll was released into Latifi’s path.
