The race started with two big accidents at the first corner, which took out 7 cars. At Turn 1, Mark Webber collided with Christian Klien, who then spun around and was taken out by Franck Montagny. In Turn 2, Juan Pablo Montoya nudged his team-mate Kimi Räikkönen into a spin. Montoya then clouted Jenson Button whose front right tyre got caught by BMW-Sauber's Nick Heidfeld who was launched into a triple barrel roll; Montoya also caught Scuderia Toro Rosso's Scott Speed in the incident. None of the drivers were injured. After that, the order stayed the same at the front, the only action being a battle at the back between David Coulthard, Nico Rosberg and Vitantonio Liuzzi. Rosberg being the loser and suffering the title of being the only finishing driver not to score in the race.
