Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz started out in fourth place but dropped to P12 after receiving a five-second time penalty for hitting Alonso during the unsuccessful final restart. Meanwhile, The Aston Martin driven by Lance Stroll tagged Leclerc, who had begun eighth, at Turn 3, sending him spinning rearward into the dirt. Due to the fact that the collision was a first-lap “racing incident,” the stewards determined there was no need to look into it. Leclerc’s second DNF from the first three races maintains Ferrari’s dismal start to the 2023 season.
A great fighting spirit by @Carlossainz55 from P11 to P4, but he finished in a heartbreaking P12 after he received a 5 second time penalty causing a collision with ALO.
