elling apol­ogy to team-mate Se­bas­tian Vet­tel as Fer­rari’s cri­sishit cam­paign took an­other sorry twist. Less than a mile into the race, both scar­let cars were ef­fec­tively elim­i­nated af­ter Le­clerc smashed into Vet­tel on the open­ing lap.

Le­clerc was launched air­borne af­ter he rat­tled the kerbs at turn three and landed on Vet­tel’s car.

The force of the im­pact ripped off Vet­tel’s rear wing and the four­time world cham­pion was forced to re­tire. Le­clerc stopped for re­pairs and at­tempted to sol­dier on, be­fore he too was forced to park up.

It was the sec­ond time in four ap­pear­ances that the Fer­rari driv­ers had taken each other out of a race fol­low­ing last year’s em­bar­rass­ing com­ing to­gether in Brazil. “What hap­pened today is clearly my fault,” said Le­clerc, 22. “I made a mis­take and apol­o­gis­ing is not enough.

“We are go­ing through a dif­fi­cult time and we don’t need this. I have apol­o­gised to the team and to Seb, who didn’t do any­thing wrong. I let ev­ery­one down today and I am very sorry.”
