Romain Grosjean barely managed to survive a car crash while racing over the weekend. The Formula 1 race car driver was recorded as he narrowly escaped from his burning vehicle.
On Sunday, Romain Grosjean got trapped in a burning Formula 1 car after a crash. The race driver’s vehicle was sliced in half and exploded into flames after the first lap of the Bahrain Grand Prix.
Grosjean, 34, ended up battling to get out of the car for at least around 10 to 15 seconds. Surprisingly, he was able to keep his cool and stayed calm enough to find a way to save himself.
The Frenchman was recorded as he jumped through the flames and grabbed a barrier to help him get back onto the track. He appeared to have burnt his hands a bit as he swung them to cool them off.
Shaken by the incident, the racer was luckily able to walk to an ambulance with the assistance of two medics. His Haas team said Grosjean made it out with minor burns on his ankles and hands.
However, he was generally described as okay. Red Bull’s Max Verstappen recalled seeing a lot of fire and thinking that wasn’t a good thing for the French driver, Verstappen was, however, glad Grosjean was fine.
He also shared how he hoped the driver would be able to fully recover. The injured driver was taken by helicopter to a military hospital where he was kept overnight for further observation.
Formula 1 shared a clip of Grosjean’s escape and shared their gratitude that the driver was able to walk away from the incident. In the tweet, Formula 1 also commended the marshals, drivers, and medical teams for their bravery.

“A heart-stopping moment on Lap 1 in Bahrain.”
