As the cars were making their turns on turn 2 on Lap 1, Sainz Jr. was involved in a crash at the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix in Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari in Imola, Emilia Romagna, Italy. The accident also briefly took out Daniel Ricciardo.
Ricciardo was eventually able to get back onto the track. However, Sainz’s car sustained enough damage to knock him out of the race.

“Unlucky day,” Sainz said in an Instagram post. “I braked well into turn 1, leaving enough space, but unfortunately Daniel lost a bit the car and hit me from behind. Pity, we were up for a good race. I’m confident we can turn it around. On to Miami.”
