Kevin Magnussen of Haas collided with Alex Albon's Red Bull at the final corner, the Danish driver spinning off into the gravel after trying to squeeze past the Thai driver.
The front left wheel of his Haas car was smashed off after the impact as he attempted to cut across Albon at the apex of the corner leading on to the start-finish straight.
The safety car stayed out for five laps before the race resumed with pole sitting six-time world champion Lewis Hamilton out in front in his Mercedes.
The London-born Thai driver Albon said: "I don't know where he expected me to go, to be honest."
He pitted on lap seven, following the re-start, just as the stewards announced they were launching an investigation into the collision.
Magnussen's exit reduced the field to 18 cars after the pre-race elimination of Nico Hulkenberg whose Force India car failed to start.
The German had qualified ninth after his dramatic late call-up on Thursday night to replace Sergio Perez, who tested positive for coronavirus.

Driver survives plunge off cliff onto crowded beach
As if sharks weren’t enough to worry about.
Beachgoers in Cornwall, U.K., were shocked when a car came hurtling off a seaside cliff and landed on an empty tent last Thursday afternoon.
The black subcompact apparently failed to negotiate a hairpin turn 20 feet above the Mawgan Porth strand.

Fortunately, the tent was unoccupied at the time and the driver escaped with only minor injuries despite the airbags not deploying, according to SWNS.

"The cause of the vehicle to leave the road is not known, but it was slow enough not to activate the onboard airbags,” the Padstow Coastguard said.
The car was righted and removed from the beach. Its driver's name has not been released.
