Romain Grosjean’s crash had everyone the entire Formula 1 world shook. As the session stopped, the drivers were back at the grid waiting to hear about Romain’s situation, with Sebastian Vettel mentioning that he tried not to see the replays. Meanwhile, Grosjean got out of the fireball with minor injuries on his hands and ankle.
Sebastian Vettel questioned the failure of barriers involved in Grosjean’s crash. According to reports, “The impact tore Grosjean’s car in half, leaving the monocoque including the halo and survival cell embedded in the metal guard rail while a big fire began.”
Vettel said, “I don’t know how to be honest, but obviously the guard rail is not supposed to fail like that. It’s good that the cars are safer as they used to be in the past, but the guard rail shouldn’t fail and the car shouldn’t catch fire in that fashion”
Formula 1 grid is glad that Romain Grosjean is okay
Vettel was relieved to find out that Grosjean is okay. The rest of the grid also acknowledged how terrifying the accident was, and everyone was glad that Grosjean walked away relatively unscathed from the accident.
George Russell said, “Had the halo not been there, I’m sure it would have been an incredibly different outcome. The way he walked away anyway was incredible. The safety has moved along so much in recent years so we can only be grateful.”
Pierre Gasly further added, “It was horrible, initially I didn’t know what happened, and when I saw the images I was shocked. From my generation, I’ve never seen things like this. In the past I think it was more common but it was really scary.”
There was a sigh of relief from everyone when we saw Romain Grosjean jump out of the fire that had engulfed him. FIA officials have announced a full investigation into the accident to find out what happened with the barriers. However, it must be acknowledged that Formula 1 has come a long way to ensure the safety of everyone on the grid.
