Verstappen crash leads to safety car

Toro Rosso's Max Verstappen crashes into the back of Romain Grosjean's Lotus during the Monaco Grand Prix, resulting in the crucial safety car that led to Lewis Hamilton losing the lead.

The young Dutch driver was making good progress in the race until he was caught out by Grosjean's early braking and collided into him - fortunately neither driver was injured.

The incident brought out the safety car, leading to Mercedes deciding to pit Hamilton while his team-mate Nico Rosberg and Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel did not. Hamilton was unable to regain the positions, allowing Rosberg to claim his third consecutive win around the Monte Carlo streets.
