Rule number one in Formula One is don’t crash into your team-mate but unfortunately for Romain Grosjean and Fernando Alonso they didn’t have much choice.

In the turn one melee, Grosjean lost control and launched his Lotus team-mate Pastor Maldonado into the air, putting both of them out the race. Fernando Alonso did an incredible job to avoid them but in doing so harpooned his McLaren buddy, Jenson Button.


From the two incidents only Fernando Alonso continued and went on to take his first point for McLaren Honda.
