Behind them, a slow getaway from P5 from Zhou Guanyu quickly led to repercussions as the Alfa Romeo man tried to recover - first he ran into the rear of Daniel Ricciardo's Alphatauri, who in turn touched the Alpine of Esteban Ocon, who then collided with team mate Pierre Gasly.

The outcome was an early retirement for both Alpines, and a five-second time penalty for Zhou for causing a collision. Enjoy the race start in the video above.
