Romain Grosjean

How the hell he survived that I’ll never know..... Holy Guacamole

Never mind the fire, he went clean through the barrier. All hail the Halo! Just burnt his hands!

Re: Romain Grosjean

Yeah, that looked f---ing amazing. How did he just climb out of this after half a minute? Quite a Sunday for him.

Very lucky; the halo has proved it's worth with this crash.

Re: Romain Grosjean

Big crashes are one thing, but fire? That's a completely different thing and nothing I thought I would ever see again in F1. I'm so happy that he is fine.



I think that he should call it quits, however. Apart from a few moments, his career has been filled with these types of bad mistakes. What he did in Bahrain was insane.

Re: Romain Grosjean

That was incredible, I wasn’t expecting to see him walk away from that.

Re: Romain Grosjean

Grosjean was 32 seconds in the middle of the fire https://www.thedrive.com/news/37857/...hrain-gp-crash

If he doesn't get out by himself, the crew would have taken too long to put out the fire :/

Possibly. That move by Grosjean was reckless though... he’s always been reckless!

And he always tries to put the blame on somebody else.

To be fair though, that's pretty much par for the course with most drivers.

But I agree that Grosjean is one of the worse offenders.
