Cecotto spun his tyres allowing teammate Evans to lead the field heading into Sainte Dévote. Shortly afterwards a fifteen car pile-up at the first corner caused the race to be red-flagged to a halt. After losing the lead Cecotto was fending off an attack from Leimer through Sainte Dévote but it was not possible for Cecotto to maintain his line and he understeered straight into the barrier. Leimer was trapped in the manoeuvre and mounted the left-hand corner of Cecotto's car in response. Palmer took avoiding action by spinning on the inside line causing the turn to be blocked. Palmer avoided injury when Leal's front wing came close to striking his helmet.
