Nico Hulkenberg, the other Haas driver, was an innocent bystander who could not avoid hitting both cars in the crash.

Former F1 driver turned commentator Martin Brundle described the crash as a "monster of an accident" while commenting on the state of Perez's car.

Australian Oscar Piastri will be driving his McLaren around the streets of Monte Carlo with a special livery, as the team pays tribute to the legendary Ayrton Senna.

"Look at how well the survival cell has worked," Brundle told Sky Sports after seeing Perez out of the car.

"That's kind of written-off every single piece of that Formula 1 car."

Former world champion Jenson Button told Sky Sports he believed both Perez and Magnussen could have given each other more room, but believed Magnussen should have backed out.

Magnussen told media he thought he should have been given more space by Perez.

"From my point of view, I had a good part of my front on Perez's rear," he said.

"When he went to the wall, I just got pushed into the wall and made contact with him.

"I trusted he was going to leave a space for me, since I was there."

Carlos Sainz, who suffered a tyre puncture after making contact with Piastri, was the major beneficiary of the red flag.

Sainz went to the rear of the field after being unable to turn his car, but the race stoppage meant the drivers went back to their original grid spots for the race restart.

The contact between the Spaniard and the Australian damaged the floor and sidepod of Piastri's McLaren.

This led to a lack of downforce for the Australian as he went chasing Leclerc for the race lead.
