Romain Grosjean's car catapulted over two others, including points leader Fernando Alonso, as the field entered the first turn of Sunday's Formula 1 Bengian Grand Prix at Spa.
In the series' first race in 35 days, Grosjean initially triggered the crash as he moved to the right, making contact with Lewis Hamilton as he attempted to get in front of him. After the contact, Hamilton's car immediately snapped to the left, and his car -- with the front wheels off the ground -- pushed Grosjean's into the field in front of them braking for the first turn.
Grosjean's car then launched over Sergio Perez and Alonso, and both Alonso and Hamilton also got airtime in the melee. Thankfully, no one was hurt. As you can see from the video above, Grosjean's car flew right in front of Alonso's cockpit. Because of the crash, Grosjean has been suspended for next week's race at Monza. Jenson Button won Sunday's race.
