The Monaco Grand Prix was interrupted for the second time with just over 30 laps to go when Williams driver Pastor Maldonado was nudged into the wall by Marussia's Max Chilton.

Chilton lost control and moved across into Maldonado on his side, sending the Venezuelan off the wall and into the crash barriers. Chilton's teammate Jules Bianchi was dragged into the crash but no driver was hurt.

The safety car came out earlier on following a heavy crash involving Ferrari's Felipe Massa, who ploughed into the wall and slid across the track in a carbon-copy of his crash in Saturday's third practice.

The Brazilian, who got out of his car, was given medical treatment to his neck and right shoulder.
