Grosjean escaped death after emerging from flames aboard a VF-20 crashed on Turn 3 shortly after departure. The accident originated from a situation in which Haas’ 34-year-old French driver attempted to overtake Daniil Kvyat (Alpha Tauri), but failed. Grosjean’s attempt to swing to the left caused the tail of the VF-20 to crash into the front wheel of the Kvyat and lose control and rush into the steel fence along the road. Speed ​​at impact is 220km / h, impact force is determined to be about 53G.

The strong impact caused Grosjean’s car to break in half, the upper half stuck to the fence and the cockpit part was blown out of the body. Leaked fuel sparked the fire, Grosjean struggled in flames for about 30 seconds before exiting the cockpit and climbing over the fence with the help of race staff. All were relieved to see Grosjean alive. This accident showed that safety tests, and especially the inspection of the Halo cockpit protective device, contributed to helping the French driver escape. This is the most serious F1 accident after Jules Bianchi crash in Suzuka in 2014.

Grosjean escaped death though F1 car broke in two and caught fire

1996 World Champion Briton Damon Hill said: “It is a miracle he survived such a collision.” Driver Alan van der Merwe, the ambulance driver to the scene, said: “It was a big surprise for us, we have never seen such a big fire in the past 12 years. head got out of the car by himself, which is wonderful after such an accident. It’s a relief to see he’s fine. “

Many riders were shocked to witness the accident. Hamilton was also shocked when reviewing the photos of the fire. He said: “I was shocked to see that scene. When I got in the car, I knew I was taking a risk. I respect the dangers that come with this sport. I posted about it on it.” Twitter in the meantime because it was too appalling. Photos of the car and cockpit. I didn’t know what the force of impact was at that time, but I’m glad Halo was doing so well. “

The last time an F1 car broke in half was in Monaco in 1991. The last time a car caught fire after a track accident was in Imola in 1989. And had to go back to the 1970s to get it. the car crashes through steel barriers. On both occasions, at Watkins Glen in the US in 1973 and 1974, riders Francois Cevert and Helmut Koinigg were killed.

After more than an hour of waiting in the technical area for the organizers to replace the broken fence in the Turn 3 area and receiving news that Grosjean had only been slightly burned, the riders started again. However, just a few seconds later, it was the RP20 of Lance Stroll (Racing Point) that overturned when pitted against Daniil Kvyat, the safety car appeared again. It wasn’t until round 9 that the race was back. Lewis Hamilton continued to successfully defend the number one spot, although Max Verstappen (Red Bull) and Sergio Perez (Racing Point) continuously put strong pressure.

Struggling with the tires when the track temperature dropped rapidly at night, and the race was lengthened, but Hamilton still completed 58 laps with a time of 2 hours 59 minutes 47,515 seconds to finish first. He therefore got his 11th victory, continuing his goal of leveling a record 13 wins in a season held by Michael Schumacher and Sebastian Vettel.

In the back, Sergio Perez missed his second chance on podium by giving up at the end of the RP20 engine fire. The incident caused the Bahraini Grand Prix to finish behind the car safely. The fact that Perez gave up made many riders get more points, Alexander Albon (Red Bull) was lucky for the second time to finish in the top 3. Charles Leclerc (Ferrari) got one point from 10th after the strenuous race with Ferrari .

After the race, Perez insisted he was not interested in losing at the Bahrain race. “It doesn’t matter to me to keep or lose third place. The most concerned issue is that Romain Grosjean is safe after a terrible accident,” he said.
