The French pilot miraculously managed to get out of the burning car destroyed in half. Now Grosjean was taken to the medical center.

On Sunday, November 29, as part of the Formula 1 World Championship, the Bahrain Grand Prix takes place. The race was stopped already on the second lap due to the terrible accident of Roman Grosjean. After a bunch of first turns, the French pilot began to move sharply towards the pilot “Alpha Tauri” Daniil Kvyat.

After contact between them, Grosjean’s car was thrown onto the safety rail. The car crashed into 2 parts and instantly caught fire from a terrible blow. Fortunately, the French pilot remained conscious and miraculously managed to leave the burning car. Then the marshals helped Grosjean get to the medical car. This accident became the most frightening after the death of Jules Bianchi at the 2014 Japanese Grand Prix. The first medical examination at the hospital produced encouraging results. At the moment, Grosjean has burns. It is worth paying tribute to the safety systems in modern cars, which, without exaggeration, saved the life of the Frenchman.

The Halo system, which protects the pilots’ heads, played a particularly important role. Let us recall that many initially opposed its introduction.

Now the marshals are trying to restore the safety rail, which was hit, but no information about the resumption of the race has yet been reported.
