Footage of bizarre boat crash at Monaco Grand Prix emerges

Footage of bizarre boat crash at Monaco Grand Prix emerges

This could be the most expensive crash of the Monaco Grand Prix.

Footage has emerged of a boat crash on billionaire's row at the Monaco Grand Prix during qualifying.

Whilst the action was unfolding on the track an empty boat appeared to malfunction and go flying into a stationary yacht and a small dinghy.

It only narrowly missed onlookers who were walking on a nearby jetty and managed to spot it just in time to avoid being hit.

The video of the incident has since gone viral and taken away attention from all the action on the track.

Ferrari's Charles Leclerc qualified on pole in his home race ahead of McLaren's Oscar Piastri who joins him on the front row.

It was a poor showing from World Champion Max Verstappen who only places in sixth after hitting a wall on his final lap of the circuit.

Monaco is widely regarded as the most prestigious race and is known for being a playground for the rich and famous with several yachts docked in the harbour beside the track.

Fans confirmed on social media that nobody was hurt in the boat crash with the party atmosphere sure to continue into the race day now the incident's over.

As things stand in the race for the Drivers World Championship Verstappen is still out in front but Leclerc has a good opportunity to close the gap with a win.

Sergio Perez is currently third with Lando Norris and Carlos Sainz rounding out the top five.

If you're a fan of the sport you can't deny that it would be magical seeing Leclerc triumph for the first time at his home track.

It's the third time in his career he has started the race on pole but something has gone wrong in both previous races preventing him from claiming the victory.

It could be third time lucky and there's no doubt he will be putting everything on the line.
