The Last Laps Of This Formula Renault Race Descended Into Absolute Chaos

Thought the finish to the IndyCar race last weekend was dramatic? It's got nothing on this!

There were collisions, offs and spins everywhere in this Formula Renault race at the Autodromo Parque Ciudad de Rio Cuarto in Argentina, which restarted with two laps to go. In any series a restart so late in the race is always a recipe for excitement, but so many things go wrong here that I’ve watched the video several times and I’m still not sure I’ve seen everything.

The two leaders collide almost straight away, which miraculously doesn’t result in anyone flipping over. The debris from that appears to damage several other cars, which then go off at the next corner. Then on the next lap, everyone bunches up for the yellow flag. You just know it’s going to end with more contact - what you don’t expect is for it to get caused by a sudden wheel failure!

Early contender for the craziest race of 2018? You betcha!
