Formula-one driver Alexander Wurz crashes his car during the Canadian Grand Prix. Four drivers were involved in a pile-up soon after the start, as all tried to go into a corner together. Wurz collided with French driver Jean Alesi and was launched into a roll. He continued the race in a spare vehicle and went on to come fourth, with Michael Schumacher taking first place.
