Monaco F1 start crash 1995

This was the last time Formula 1 had a full 26 cars on the grid, as Simtek collapsed not long after. But far up the field, David Coulthard’s first-ever Monaco Grand Prix featured this spin while speeding towards Sainte-Dévote, thanks to Jean Alesi. Ferrari’s Gerhard Berger went airborne after clipping Alesi, and all three drivers switched to spare cars. More the merrier indeed.
