Charles Leclerc was given an opportunity to drive a legendary Formula 1 car on Sunday as part of the Historic Monaco Grand Prix weekend.

But what was supposed to be a dream outing in Niki Lauda's Ferrari 312 from the early-1970s turned into a nightmare as he ended up in the barriers.

Leclerc hit trouble when he tried to move down the gears heading into La Rascasse, with the car spinning around and sliding rearwards into the surrounding Tecpro.

While Leclerc managed to get going again, the incident caused significant damage to the rear wing of the car, which he parked up on the pit straight.
