F1 Driver Romain Grosjean Survives Fiery Crash

Haas to STOP development on'21 car in January- Steiner

In the opening lap of the race, with Canadian driver Lance Stroll in front of him crashing out into gravel, Grosjean veered right in the congestion, clipping a Daniil Kvyat's front wheel before veering sharply into the barrier in an explosion of flame and fuel.

"The intensity of that impact sawing the auto into two, the cockpit jammed in between the barrier - to see grosjean jump out of that vehicle safe and sound is a sight i'm truly and genuinely grateful FOR".

The crash came at a service road access point where the driver and medical crew from the circuit Safety Car were on the scene immediately. He got a way with it I think.

"Romain is doing OK, I don't want to make a medical comment but he had light burns on his hands and ankles", he said. Obviously he is shaking and going through all the checks but he's fine. "But I've only seen what you guys have seen". "I prefer that luck than racing luck".

The FIA took immediate action and a red flag soon appeared.

Martin Brundle added that it was "so unusual to see a Formula One vehicle with all the safety cells and fuel and what have you immediately go into flames". "We took a moment or so to process", he said.

London anti-lockdown protests result in 155 arrests
The Metropolitan Police officers arrested 155 people for offending coronavirus regulations and assaulting a police officer. The group used its Twitter account throughout the afternoon to encourage people to head to central London locations.

On impact, the vehicle exploded.

"[Romain] is stable and being taken by helicopter to the MDF MC Military Hospital for further evaluation", the governing body said.

Marshals were lucky as well with two tyres flying off the vehicle, before they rushed to Grosjean's aid.

"I've never seen that much fire in 12 years". It looked like dynamite. a massive explosion tore the vehicle apart. But full respect to the FIA, and the teams and the designers and all the stress analysis for constantly trying to improve the structural integrity of the survival cell or the chassis.

Romain Grosjean was quickly extracted from the burning vehicle and rushed to hospital. How on earth has Romain Grosjean just walked out of this. One can't really imagine the shock his family would've felt knowing that it was Grosjean who hit the barrier.

Formula One driver Romain Grosjean appeared to escape with minor burns after his vehicle crashed and burst into flames moments after the start of the Bahrain Grand Prix on Sunday. We've seen many courageous drivers end up lifeless on the track in the past.
