The 34-year-old could only think about staying alive for his three children as he was trapped in his car that was engulfed in flames.

After smashing into a guardrail last weekend, Grosjean's car burst into flames. When his vehicle veered off course into a fence, breaking in two, the Haas driver was going at 137 mph.

The father of three emerged from the wreck with some injuries after being trapped in the wreckage for 28 seconds, although he said it felt like 90 seconds.

While trapped in the car and surrounded by fire, Grosjean said he remembered famous racer Niki Lauda, who suffered severe injuries to his face in a 1976 crash.

Even though he was stuck in the car, Grosjean had finally found the right motivation and tactics to escape.

The 34-year-old recalled trying to get himself out of the burning car. After different trials on getting himself out, Grosjean said he thought about Lauda's accident.

At that point, he thought to himself that he could not end like that and that was not going to be his last race. So he made another effort to escape.

The father of three recalled the unpleasant moment when his body began to relax, and he became at peace with himself, believing he was going to die.

To pull himself out of the vehicle, Grosjean put both his hands in the flames and was met by doctors and emergency officials who had rushed to the scene.

According to reports, The Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA) is investigating the crash and expects to have the results in six to eight weeks.
