F1 Crashes – Rarely does a race in the principality go by without a safety car being deployed or a barrier remain untouched.
Few circuits around the world challenge F1 drivers more than the narrow streets of Monte Carlo as they push their car to the limits, edging them to within millimeters of the barriers to gain another tenth of a second over their rivals.
But it doesn’t always work out well, something several of the world’s best racers have experience of, as the margins between making a turn and causing thousands of pounds of damage become blurred.
As these videos show, it only takes a moment’s distraction or car failure to end a race with a trip into the barriers.
