Valtteri Bottas

Valtteri Bottas triggered a brief red flag during Monaco Grand Prix third practice after a crash at the Swimming Pool.

The Finn clipped the outside wall on the exit of the ultra-fast section, breaking off the front-right of his Stake machine.

This meant he ground to a halt rounding Rascasse, triggering the red flags as the track was blocked, with Lewis Hamilton held up behind. 

Bottas's team-mate Zhou Guanyu also caused a red flag in Friday practice, although the delay for the Finn was only around four minutes long.
