Formula 1 CEO Stefano Domenicali along with Ferrari drivers and others participated in a charity football in Monte Carlo on Tuesday night. The annual football match for charity included F1 driver Fernando Alonso, Charles Leclerc, Carlos Sainz and Pierre Gasly. While Domenicali played the game as a goalkeeper of the driver’s team but was forced to leave after an “incident” with Daniil Kvyat.

The former Red Bull Racing driver playing on behalf of the opposite team approached Domenicali with too much speed while the Domenicali was already on the ground. A collision ensued, after which the Formula One boss was disabled for the evening.

Notably, under the leadership of Domenicali, Ferrari clinched their last Formula One World Championship. In September 2020, Domenicali was appointed F1 CEO as he replaced Chase Carey.

Speaking of the recently concluded Spanish GP, Red Bull’s Max Verstappen secured his third race win of the 2022 F1 season at the Spanish GP on Sunday evening. Verstappen is ahead of everyone and leads the driver’s standings with 25 points following his victory at the recently concluded Grand Prix. However, Charles Leclerc, who led the race from pole for the first half of the Grand Prix, had a shocking ending as he suffered power unit issues.

Sergio Perez followed through before George Russell carried on his strong start to life in the Mercedes with the third spot. Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz had not the best of the outings as he lost two places and then spun out a few laps but managed to recover well and finished fourth in the race. He earned ten points and finished fifth in the driver’s standings. Lewis Hamilton fought back well towards the end and brilliantly recovered from the back of the grid following contact with Haas early on in the race.
