Grosjean of Lotus, Alonso of Ferrari crash in Belgian Grand Prix

The early crash also took out Mexican driver Sergio Perez and Grosjean, who received a one-race ban for dangerous driving and will miss the Sept. 9 stop in Monza, Italy.

Grosjean went for a small gap and clipped Lewis Hamilton's McLaren. That sent both cars spinning and led to Grosjean's Lotus flying over Alonso's Ferrari, which then took out Perez's Sauber. All four drivers escaped injury.

A visibly frustrated Hamilton briefly confronted Grosjean after the incident and tapped the side of his own helmet with his finger after getting out of his car.
