Romain Grosjean has been taken to hospital with minor burns and accidents after a terrifying, fiery accident on the Bahrain Grand Prix.
The Frenchman’s Haas pierced the barrier, cut up in two and burst into flames on the primary lap of the race, which was stopped.
Grosjean’s automotive was embedded within the barrier on its facet and the motive force seems to have been saved by the halo head-protection system.
He has suspected damaged ribs and minor burns to his toes.
“It’s a miracle that he’s alive,” stated 1996 world champion Briton Damon Hill, who was Ayrton Senna’s team-mate on the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix when the Brazilian three-time champion was killed.
Medical automotive driver Alan van der Merwe stated: “It was a big surprise for us as well, we’ve never seen that much fire in 12 years.
“Romain began to get out of the automotive himself which was fairly superb after an accident like that. It was a aid to see he was OK.”
