Charles Leclerc crashed out of the São Paulo Grand Prix on the
formation lap after an apparent hydraulic failure on his Ferrari.
From second on the grid, Leclerc lost control of his SF-23 at Turn
6 and hit the barriers, taking away his chances before the race had
even begun. “I lost the hydraulics. I lost the hydraulics. Why am I
so unlucky, why the f**k am I so unlucky?” questioned Leclerc on
team radio. Despite getting going again, the Ferrari soon pulled
off as the race then started without any extra delay. Red flag for
start crash At the start, Williams’ Alex Albon made contact with
Nico Hulkenberg’s Haas, tipping the Thai-Briton into his team-mate
Kevin Magnussen at Turn 1. Both Albon and Magnussen were out on the
spot, with Daniel Ricciardo and Oscar Piastri also suffering damage
to their cars and were apparently out of the race. Moments later,
the red flags were shown for the debris, allowing AlphaTauri and
McLaren time to try and fix their respective cars. Up front, Max
Verstappen maintained the lead with Lando Norris making up four
places and Lewis Hamilton two, while Lance Stroll dropped from
third to fifth, behind Aston Martin teammate Fernando Alonso.
