Last year, Romain Grosjean was burned badly in a fiery F1 crash; This year, the racing driver has upgraded to putting out his own Indycar fires!
In 2021, Romain Grosjean was racing for Haas F1. His stint with the team and series came to a close via a fiery crash at the Bahrain International Circuit.
Watch Romain Grosjean put out his own fire in Sunday’s Indycar race in the video below.
Impact with a barrier at high speed caused the car to be cut in half as the driver’s compartment went through a guardrail. The rear end was separated and an explosion of racing fuel soon followed.
That 2020 impact was measured at 67g. Somehow, Grosjean was able to remove himself from the cockpit. With help from by Alan van der Merwe and Ian Roberts, the driver was able to escape the large fireball that surrounded him.
